Hi everyone 👋

First up, TNC. Tomorrow is the last day of the month. We’re waiting on updates from Jason on unlocking and are continuing to push for an update. As soon as we have further information we’ll share it with you.

BJay welcomed a new edition to his family 🎉 The whole family are doing well. If he’s less online over the next couple of weeks, this is why.

Work on our load testing platform, Newton, progressed with changes designed to provide more control over load testing and also to provide a better export mechanisms for test results.

We fixed some issues with authentication on test.network and added some additional capacity to make it easier to simulate capacity and architecture related errors.

And we onboarded a new engineer to the network team. He has been working the new Ping package which replaces the existing third party tooling in the network. We’re designing it to handle errors, timeouts and cancellations better.

For fun, here’s a screenshot of Arthur’s dev environment:



In other news, the eCom platform we’ve been supporting that’s built on Edit went live. It’s running on API along with DNS and CDN in the network. It has full support for subscriptions and one off payments, functionality that’s moved forward significantly in the most recent builds of the platform.

We’re assisting with the roll out of four further eCom sites in Edit, all due live this year.

Build on the supporting site for an exciting new blockchain kicked off. It’s powered by Edit, API, CDN and DNS. It should be live this side of Christmas.

And there’s a whole world more coming. Stay with us.
