EDG Developer Update: Nov 28 - Dec 4, 2021
Keeping you up to date on all things technical related to Edgeware and more! Always in a human-readable form, we look at the code changes so you don't have to.
- Council member Remz has shared their work reviewing the Wako release after continued work by Drew and Raymond. They document several of their findings on Github, but they involve repairing unintended changes to network parameters. When this upgrade is ready and deployed successfully, EDG will have a stable EVM platform. Developers and validators are requested to review these changes, provide their thoughts on parameters and fixes, and otherwise test and run this node release and report bugs to the Github repo. Additionally, you can participate at the Builders channel in Discord at edgeware.chat
- Thom Ivy has pointed out that as a community we need to figure out the answers to our security policy, please give your feedback and ideas. You can do so in the discord / telegram builders chat or better yet on github.
