Core development report #7

in #hive8 months ago



We are nearing the release of the new hard fork (tentatively targeting sept 8) (read more here: the work I'm doing is mostly about testing and adding the finishing touches.

We recently closed two of my open merge requests, one added tests to the update proposal endpoint, and another is the slow conversion of hive to the dao.

@blocktrades' team did some reviews on it, we had a few iterations of them pointing out issues and me fixing them. But now they are both merged, one issue that I overlooked caused a one day delay in the release of the finished hard fork code because a complete replay is necessary to make sure everything works. Sorry about that.

You can see both commits here :
and here:

So I am done on the work for hard fork 24, @blocktrades' team is working on the final touches, so unless they need me for something, I am turning my focus towards hard fork 25. One of the first changes I did a while ago was the rc delegation feature, which now needs to be updated since the base code changed a lot since I did that feature, so I will update it in the future.

To give you an idea, one of the changes that was done is the complete rebranding so we don't have any mentions of steem in the code and I did the feature before those, so my code still has a lot of steem mentions.

Anyways that's all.

See you guys at hard fork 24, is anyone doing a remote fork zoom party ?



It will be nice to see the complete break from steem, to know that we will be fully standing on our own, (not that we haven't). Do you know if any one has a post out of just what changes other than the removal of all steem mentions have been taken on HF24? Was there any changes made to down vote or witness selection retention? Is all the airdrop drama done and complete?

I do appreciate the updates. Along with the RC issue, is there any other thing you will be working on for HF25? Is the RC work going to be for the ability to delegate RC's?

The scope for hf25 is still undefined, but I will definitely be working on other things for it. And yes Rc delegations allow you te delegate you rc, like how you would delegate hive power today.

That should help with the on boarding, or so it seems the way people have been talking about it. Thank you for all the hard work you have been doing.

I think there will be a post from hiveio that details all the changes (in HF24) within the next couple of days.

Thank you, looking forward to the fork, and the future.

I guess at least the witnesses will, just to be sure nothing goes wrong :-)
