Weekly Dev Update #60

Hey Y’all, 

This week we finished up with the release of the Loki Messenger Android application. We also released the Loki Binance Bridge which was developed over the past few months and has now been open sourced on Github. Over the next few weeks we really want to focus on improving the user experience in Loki Messenger, and add lots of new and highly requested features like group messages, attachments etc…

If you’re on our Discord you can catch Jeff, the lead developer of LLARP, live streaming as he codes at https://www.twitch.tv/uguu25519. He typically streams on Tuesday mornings, 9am – 12pm Eastern (US) time.

What’s going on this week with Lokinet: 

Lokinet is now feature frozen and in pre-release testing.  We’ve frozen the code to any new features and are testing it internally using various network environments.  The Lokinet team’s focus right now is to get the 0.5.0 release out and working; we’re putting off any major changes and improvements until a stable release is out the door.  This week has seen several fixes to minor issues found so far.

While we had intended for Lokinet to use IPv6 routing internally, testing revealed some problems with this approach (particularly in the non-Linux implementations), so we have deferred that change to a future release.  

Note: this isn’t a change to require IPv6 connectivity for Lokinet, but just for Lokinet virtual addresses to be IPv6 based.
