Week Six: W/E 2nd August 2019

Each week, this newsletter is where we share a high-level summary of key achievements and what’s been going on. Remember, for the very latest technical updates you can follow all the commits and pull requests in the community GitHub.

On the support side, we have closed many of the known issues for the Rust self node now, which is great news. Meanwhile, there has been a lot of development work going on behind the scenes over the past two weeks. As well as the continuing core development work on network functionality, the IOHK team has also been making progress towards a Javascript SDK for the Jormungandr testnet. We’ll share more news in due course. But suffice to say, we’re excited about some of the functionality that this will bring, empowering Javascript developers to write client applications.

  • Content planning has started for phase two, where we will be rolling out the Networking functionality. The team is working with development to map out the user tasks and associated content that we plan to deliver to support users

In addition, the team has worked on some documentation tickets and this has generated the following two new articles:
