Pre-Dev-Update Thread! Yay! :D

Other than the “no droplets”, auto-updating, and integration, that sounds like community1. :smile:

Seriously, I just had an idea that is worth playing with (i.e., testing) which I’ll put on a new topic.

Any guesses what we can expect in today’s update? If not testent4, then maybe an estimate for the start of testnet4? What do you think?

Ross said early this week for testnet4. Tomorrow would be the middle of the week. :smile:

Well, Friday isn’t far away. :slight_smile: According to the last update:

TEST 4 will be released for community testing when the current work in Crust async is completed, integrated and tested. More detail of the ongoing work in Crust below.

if the testing and integration goes well, we will have a releasable Crust by the end of this week.

Yey!!! :smiley: i hope those discussions about funding won’t eat up too much time oft the devs ._____. if they need to justify everything they do again and again they won’t have time left for the things that need to be done here!

Here’s what you do:

Have an account on github.com.

Set maidsafe/safe_vault to “watch”.

In your profile, configure “notification” to be by email rather than by web.

Have a smartphone that beeps when a new email arrives.

Look at every email the moment it arrives.

(Although I cannot imagine why some people do those last two things).

Then forget about it, until…

A new entry appears under “maidsafe/safe_vault/releases”

Then, jump on here and let everyone know.

If folk are wondering what ‘packaging’ is about, this article from Digital Ocean is very good:

Package Management Basics: apt, yum, dnf, pkg

This should make installs way easier. So will new installs be released as package manager files or as something we can order from the command line? Or do we need to do some configuring first?
