In case you missed it, here’s the link to the transcript of last week’s AMA: https://dadi.cloud/en/knowledge/network/ama-recap-june-07th-2019/

RC2 of API 5.0 was released today. Here’s the latest for anyone that wants to help us test: https://github.com/dadi/api/releases/tag/v5.0.0-rc2

Key changes:

  • Improvements to document versioning
  • Search
  • Compression Support
  • Conditional GET with ETags

Full release notes for the candidates available on request. They’ll be published to Github with the full release.

We’ve spent a lot of time working through updates to the roadmaps for the Edge network.

The full roadmap is massive.

Jam packed in fact.

32 items and counting, taking us through the rest of 2019 and deep in to 2020. We’re going to be finishing it next week, and will release it right after that.

We have the PPA awards night next Wednesday. Paul is now confirmed as a presenter for one of the awards. With luck their new site will be live shortly. (Running in the network of course!)

The networking team have built and released automated deployment for Gateways on test.network and have also introduced the first full build of Vault, a vital new component for the next iteration of network ACL.

Account registration for ACL was also progressed. This is the last core component required before we start the much anticipated mainnet release.

A bunch of work has been done to simplify the way that ACL is passed between Agent and Host, which makes the self onboarding process faster, more lightweight and more secure.

We’ve been hard at work defining and building out the Edge DNS service, and completed the addition of support for AAAA, CNAME and TXT records.

The react build of Publish has been merged in to the dev branch on Github, which includes a new rich editor. It’s not been released yet, but it will be soon (next week!). Check it: https://github.com/dadi/publish/tree/develop. We met with a company in the Governmental and security sector to demo our technology. An early, but very interesting session.

The first full build of the Tippr app running on API in the network went in to testing. More on that soon.

We have an open position for a seasoned technical sales director (role centred on London). If you know anyone, drop me a line.

We’ve progressed our site and brand refresh significantly. I hope to be sharing some of this with you all next week.

And finally the Foundation enjoyed and got a lot out of RightsCon in Tunis (now wrapping up). You can catch their updates here: https://twitter.com/DadiFoundation

And that’s it this week 😀 Enjoy your weekends.
