~haptyl-wanwes, and Anton
~pittyp-datfyn have continued the push toward the new Urbit frontend.
~sorreg-namtyv has been working more on simplifying default value calculation in the Hoon type system.
~rovnys-ricfer and Keaton
~tonlur-sarret have a design for a better Ford caching and rebuilding architecture, and are now converting it to a UP to be reviewed by the community.
~palfun-foslup submitted a pull request that implements the Keccak family of cryptographic hashing functions in Hoon, including
rawshake. We'll need
keccak to integrate Urbit with Ethereum.
Also, moons are back! You can run the
+moon generator from your galaxy, star or planet to create a ticket for a new moon. If you run your ship in the cloud and SSH in to use Talk, try booting a moon on your laptop and using that for Talk instead. Messages you send from your moon will appear to have been sent from your usual (parent) identity.
~littel-ponnys wrote some deep thoughts on Clay, Urbit's filesystem, in this meaty Fora post.
