Weekly Dev Update #26

Hey Y’all,

Another weekly Dev Update for everyone. We released Festive Freya Version 2.0.1 this week which fixed a number of subtle bugs that we introduced in 2.0.0. Both 2.0.0 and 2.0.1 are compatible with the Festive Freya hardfork, but we recommend you update if you experienced any issues with RPC or IP resolution.

We’d like to welcome Lilac to the community development team. She’s currently working on some potential iOS support.

We could really use your help. To be considered for inclusion in packaging distribution, we need people to star, watch and fork our github repo. If you have a github account, please consider helping us out.
