Preparation for 3/29 release of RNode with the Rholang Evaluator and RSpace, to support the Rholang evaluator and offer a standalone library for Scala developers.
The Node will run in 2 modes, either in P2P mode, or Evaluator mode
If you ran a node before, you need to upgrade your node. The handshake has been updated, and won't work with old nodes.
Planning for April Release - Specification and ticket review this week
We need help from the community supporting our releases. It involves moderating the forum, replicating reported issues and then filing a Jira ticket or escalating questions to the development team. We need the development team focusing on our next set of releases, so this is an important ongoing support role. I will work this into the bounty program as well.
Developer retreat - April 17-18 in Colorado. We will be talking in detail about the architecture as well as the roadmap to Mercury. More details are available on developer.rchain.coop- Agenda is set and will be published next week.
Evaluator Demo by Kyle
Storage - Demo
Release preparation, packaging and documentation
RBL Compiler - preliminary test was a success. Keith had to make changes to both the VM and the Compiler, but was able to run boot.rbl!
Timm is going to perform a deep dive and make sure that everything is working.
Implication is now we have a reference point for OpCode output from the compiler
We are leaning towards compiling Rholang directly to OpCodes for execution by the VM.
Releases and tutorial will be pushed to the developer site as part of our release process.
