NewYearNet has continued chugging along nicely thanks to the generous attitudes of the community. The testnet is quiet now, but has gone well (but for the faucet), and has been quite stable which is great.
While that’s been rolling on we’ve been planning the next one, which should feature
quic as the protocol layer. This will mean there’s no
AutoNat, which could affect folks’ nodes-from-home experience, but should not affect anyone running on VPSes or where they’re already port-forwarding, for example.
@chriso and @bzee have been working hard on node-manager integration into our pipelines, that’s now used on CI and will shortly be making its way into testnet releases too. That will likely signal the sun-setting of the current
sn_testnet crate, once we get the manager integrated into the monorepo.
@jason_paul has been fleshing out the client documentation, adding some of Rust’s wonderful
doctests to the wallet APIs. Hopefully making things both clearer and ensuring docs are tested against the current code base (and so kept up to date!)
@roland almost has live network testing going as part of our continuous delivery process, which is quite exciting! Meanwhile @qi.ma has kept digging into potential issues from the last testnet and has added more tests for large files, and client uploads, which may have uncovered more performance improvements!
All to be tested when we get a new testnet up and atom!
