Node version 0.9.24 is the current release - second update post-mainnet - Housekeeping changes and meeting requirements of potential exchanges RNode-0.9.24 release plan
Testnet is currently running rnode version 0.9.24
Mainnet is running RNode-0.9.23.
Sprint 49 in progress
Main Focus: hardening the mainnet, improve performance, make usability improvements.
Current Work In Progress - slow and steady
Configuration changes to make node deployments easier and cleaner - nutzipper working to complete this task and create tests
Ongoing - Improvements to last finalized state initial draft PR issued https://github.com/rchain/rchain/pull/2913 but quite a bit of work involved still. The PR and the branch are structured so that multiple people can collaborate/ work on different parts of the feature at the same time. The scope of this work enables (a) faster catchup by new nodes - you can start from the last finalized state - this is a differentiator for RChain (b) offloading older data and differentiated storage and retrieval strategies for the same (c) allows for a leaner / less bloated node
Creating a node.js API for exchanges that need it. We anticipate PR being available for review in the next couple of days.
Augmenting and rationalizing monitoring of mainnet and other nets, including distributing monitoring over multiple cloud providers, for resilience
The team is trying to expand development team through Teachouts, both for core development and dApps - Tuesday wallet and dApp sessions, short videos etc.
Current Backlog (partial)
Improve merging in system deploys
Improve multi-parent Casper enablement
Implement sharding capabilities
Improve logging to be able to learn what API calls are being used, so they can be related to resource use and performance etc
Rholang 1.1 to improve syntax and user experience / learning curve
