I’m literally just off of a nine hour flight, so this will be a relatively short update!

The network team continued their work on the network CLI, which is being written in Go, and which is used to authenticate and onboard devices into the network.

They adapted the filesharding package for object storage, introducing HTTP payload support and in-memory caching.

They also refactored the Gateway queue to store file shards as well as HTTP requests, and improved overall performance of the core interaction RPC methods used by Gateway and Host.

The team added new features to the rich editor in Publish: undo/redo icons, plus a word/character count.

Small, but powerful tools to enhance the editorial interfaces.

And they made a start on a UI library for what were our web services, which will allow the reuse of visual elements across our various properties.

They improved the API endpoints for managing collections and their fields/settings and progressed the SaaS proposition for web services so that it’s now possible to create and edit collections, as well as managing fields directly within the API service.

As part of this work-stream they released a new version of the API validator module (@dadi/api-validator), which now includes methods for validating collection schemas.

And they added more information to the document versions endpoint, namely the date and the author of the change, in preparation for the integration with Publish which should begin next week.

An updated image for network telemetry on Founding Nodes was finished. This update sorts telemetry connectivity in to the upgraded mainnet and will rectify the “Unable to get status” message.

The update will be pushed out to node owners over the next few weeks.

There are two methods of delivery: direct or via a new SD. A form will be provided to guide Founding Nodes owners through the process shortly.

The Ecohustler updates mentioned last week went live on Monday and has already worked to significantly increase traffic to the site.

And finally Tiipr should be moving to the App Store as a beta next week.

And that’s it!

Enjoy your weekends.
