The 0.9.15 includes the new type safe API (instead of Either), some fixes for Long Proposal Times Issue, Offchain-data API (events API) improvements and other incremental progress in features discussed below.
Sprint 40 in progress
Main focus is on reaching Testnet 3 (a) Cost accounting (b) Long proposal times - Fairness Constraint and other improvements (d) Additional tests for multisig features (e) ongoing work in Casper tests independent of network layer (f) Ongoing work in Planning and implementation for Network safety, reliability and hardening
Implementation in progress for these preliminary tasks needed for implementing the main portions of cost accounting:
Merged - Generalize NormalizerEnv -PR reviewed and changes made.
In review - Bulletproof unforgeable-name namespace uniqueness by prohibiting terms wider than Short.MAX_VALUE . Changes from the first set of reviews made. Waiting for final review and merge. https://github.com/rchain/rchain/pull/2768
In Review - Created first PR to secure access to protocol-private PoS methods
RCHAIN-3888Getting issue details...STATUS
The 'System Deploy' construct,
RCHAIN-3767Getting issue details...STATUS necessary for cost accounting, is implemented and in review. https://github.com/rchain/rchain/pull/2778 This is a huge PR and also contains the charging logic. Currently being reviewed in sections. Expected to be merged soon. Charging logic RCHAIN-3625Getting issue details...STATUS and
RCHAIN-3624Getting issue details...STATUS
Substantial progress also made on Replay and Refund logic. PR is expected shortly to be available for review.
In parallel, work has started on combinatorial Rholang terms in contracts, to test stability of cost accounting across such combinations. PR is expected to be available for review soon.
Remaining chunks of work in cost accounting are (a) modifying existing tests to match the new code (b) writing additional tests (d) writing integration tests. Trying to maximally parallelize test writing effort. Working in shifts on large PRs.
Once the PRs are in, we will be testing cost accounting in the sandboxnet even as the PR reviews proceed. We will start with genesis ceremony and run other tests.

We continue to explore various test parameters and more complex contracts, to both test the stability of this issue and make it manifest sooner if it exists.
In Review - Implementation of mult-sig vault features is ongoing as detailed in

RCHAIN-3773Getting issue details...STATUS. Additional changes are being made to the code to address a potential security issue identified in the reviews. In final review - https://github.com/rchain/rchain/pull/2774 Next step is to add more tests for this.
Add ability to leverage all the wallet tools built for Ethereum (such as Metamask)
