Pre-Dev-Update Thread! Yay! :D

The dbc work is separate to v5, so not integrated in any way. It’s research work that has been happening in parallel.

The main v5 updates that are/have been worked on are:

  • Anti Entropy (AE).
  • Eradicate data loss issues (at lease this is the aim, full public testnet will inform us whether we’ve missed anything).
  • Reduction of unnecessary node and client messages on the Network (benefits of less code complexity, and performance improvements).

There’s been other tweaks, fixes and improvements along the way, but these are probably the headlines.

EDIT: I should also say that these are the areas that have been worked on by MaidSafe - vdash and CLI2GUI mentioned in your post are both community projects, so all credit for them goes to @happybeing and @DeusNexus, respectively.

The appeal for me would be that I could subscribe to the updates without subscribing to the user comments. It would be like the weekly updates but easier to digest I guess.

Makes sense @to7m , agreed that we will create new topics from now on :+1:

Yeah I guess that could get confusing.
I mostly meant what would we be able to play with overall on V5.
But I can see it may confuse.

When each new iteration is released there’s always a chance it may break things if the logfile output changes (which Edward is working on) but fixing that shouldn’t take long. Adding new features when the info becomes available (such as earnings, store cost and section stats) may take a bit longer but you should have at least what you’ve seen from vdash so far without much disruption.

Not gonna lie… I saw the above post and thought it was referring to this week (b/c it’s on a new thread). I (may have) started tweaking a little bit, but then I realized the post was from last week. Phew! I’m ready for the next testnet! :sweat_smile:

EDIT: moving to pre-dev update thread…

So why not restrict post rights for this topic to team members?
Usually forum software have such features.

Thanks for the idea, I do not find such an option in the forum settings, but I will look in more detail.


Privacy. Security. Freedom

5 posts were merged into an existing topic: How we might market a DBC’s (Digital Bearer Certificate) Unique/Cash-like features

So there is this happening in Node repo… Guys, too fast, too fast, I’m getting dizzy!

Only a first draft PR so unlikely for T5, but this suggests work on DBCs is progressing well.

So does this mean pure AT2 transfers are being deprecated?

Full Dev update Tomorrow?

It’s Thursday, so let’s see.

I suppose it makes sense to deprecate AT2 transfers if everything can be done with DBCs though. As I understand it DBCs have both better performance and better privacy, so unless there’s no use cases they don’t support there may not be any need for the old AT2 transfers anymore.

Is it right ?

Does DBC work without AT2 ? Hum weired.

As I understand it our DBC’s are an amalgamation of AT2 and DBC, best of both worlds rolled into one.
No?

That was also my understanding
