We've been working hard on the developer tooling for Holochain to get all the relevant libraries and developer environments running smoothly and updated to the latest beta release candidate.
Though there were a lot of changes in the release candidate, the tool chain for developing Holochain applications is mostly working. That said, the team is still making changes to many of the downstream components that devs need to get started easily. We're getting the right feedback from the developers in the ecosystem who are testing things out with us - and this is exactly what is needed to have a solid beta release next month.
- Holochain can be installed and used by devs on linux. (The Mac and windows with WSL environments are still being tested.)
Final testing of the Launcher, which allows developers to deploy their hApps for end users, is still in process and so far, internal testing shows much improved performance over the last version. Watch for updates on that, and also for details about the expanded capacities of the Scaffolding Tool and Launcher, next week.
