~2018.9.11 UpdateAnthony ~poldec-tonteg
I've gone short on words and long on links for this update, since sometimes the code speaks for itself.
After much gnashing of teeth and abuse of git, we now have a
branch (NB run with the
correct vere branch).
This branch brings together, for the first time, a few long-running
lines of development.
%ford-turbo, our new and improved reactive build
%old-ford on this branch (take a look at those comments!).
Proud papa Joe
on HTTPS proxying is baked right in (meaning that ship.urbit.org is graduating
from novelty to utility).
%jael now actually holds your
and is being used to boot ships. Curtis'
~sorreg-namtyv swansong as the
hoon is now included (a crispy new styleguide is also in the
works). Various niceties related to our new web ui are in here (au revoir old
Fora and Webtalk), as well as an actually existing
framework and all kinds of crypto goodies. This release candidate will get the
testnet treatment for a little while, while we confirm that it's good enough for
you, dear Martian.
Much of the Infrastructure team is living the life of the fireman: making chili
with your friends interspersed with someone yelling at you to put out a fire.
Except, instead of making chili, Ted
~rovnys-ricfer is redesigning the Ford
Rune language (why should
~sorreg-namtyv get all the fun?) and Elliot
~littel-ponnys is bringing
%eyre into the new Millenium. Mark
~palfun-foslup and Joe
~master-morzod, though, continue in their quest to
make Ethereum safe for Martians and Ben continues his grueling (for some value
of gruel) pair programming regime with Curtis
~tacryt-socryp continue refining our new web UI, Landscape. Fonts have
been argued over, tables overturned over line heights. But it will all be worth
it in the end.
The Keys crew (Will
~hidrel-fabtel and Gavin
~ridlur-figbud) are forming like Voltron to get our address space ported
over and make sure that we can generate our HD wallets in a secure, usable
way. They are joined by the newest edition to Tlon: Jared
Jared is down south New Zealand way, bringing Tlon ever closer to our goal of
%amesing over the entire globe. Say
Next year on Mars!
