The 0.0.145 release of Holochain brings some important updates - specifically this includes 1) namespace changes, and 2) enzymatic validation - which enables M of N witness based countersigning. Both of these are key aspects needed prior to the 0.1.0 stable HDK.
After a short pause in the Longevity Test for hosted Elemental Chat and the hosting infrastructure, we are reopening the test and releasing Elemental Chess publicly later today. Watch for invites and links to participate.
NixOS is the underlying operating system for HoloPorts and this update brings a few bug fixes and improvements. Specifically, we are testing a recent change to fan controls, which we expect will quiet down devices, and also, there are a few improvements to how hApps are installed under the hood on HoloPorts.
The next large milestone for Holo is the Publisher Alpha Program. We are now dev-complete on that work and the teams are proceeding with deployment activities, QA and release planning. We'll be sharing more about the program next week as we get closer to the Alpha launch with publishing.
