I’m slightly bemused that it’s Friday again. And that it’s February. It’s been a busy week.

The network team migrated the legacy API to the new platform in preparation for the switch over to live of Console.

They made a series of sync fixes and handled data cleanup following an outage earlier in the week.

Fixes for earnings for the new API were worked through and prepped to go live.

Payout generation for January was enabled on the back of this. We’ll be pushing the switch on this on Monday, at which point earnings for January will process.

Final changes were made to Console on test.network, specifically closing out live integration testing for sign in/up and reset password functionality, and squashing some minor Bug fixing following heavy QA testing.

A few user interface tweaks & user experience improvements have been made as well.

Adam has written an article that goes in to detail on Console and what it enables for the platform. We’ll be releasing this along with Console itself in the coming days.

Work continued on network API & CLI in support of stake transfer functionality. We expect to be as-live testing with this mid next week, with a release expected soon afterwards.

We also released new version of network CDN, adding support for extensionless assets. This is a major change that will lead to simplification in the deployment process through the consolidating asset and image endpoints.

CDN now detects the mime type of content directly from the first byte of a response from origin rather than relying on file extensions. This work also paves the way for broader support for audio and video, functionality for which is being written up for inclusion in our roadmap.

You can check out a sample of audio running through CDN here:

The team also progressed work on the addition of sharpness, saturation, progressive support, flip. filter and blur options to CDN, all of which will be added to an upcoming release.

As will the addition a configurable max height/width limit for image calls.

All of the above features went to test.network for testing today :boom:

And that’s it. What a week! Enjoy your weekends.
