It has been a quiet week for our quick updates, but a momentous one in terms of the many huge doors our dev teams are stepping through in so many areas. For full coverage listen to our Holo AMA yesterday, or read the Holochain Dev Pulse just published. A quick overview:
"A release to Build On." This release fully landed the significant performance improvements and developer features that will get immediately used by Dev Campers, Holo hosting apps, and devs in the community building all kinds of hApps.
The 8th camp has 1,500+ registrants, has live support sessions for every global time region, and promises an outstanding opportunity to learn and meet many other future Holochain devs. They'll be building a game app together to build their understanding of the most important parts of a Holochain app. Register for Dev Camp here: https://holochain.org/dev-camp
The launcher lets end users install and use Holochain apps locally. The scaffolding tool lets people design and build Holochain apps. This release let us get these ready for Dev Camp, and they have been updated to the release build and work great.
There were a few bugs that slowed registration down, but those are fixed. We have 566 fully registered HoloPorts and 247 that have started and were slowed down by bugs. Together they meet the 800 threshold so we should be starting the program very soon.
