The time has come for yet another weekly development progress report and a little bird tells us you're going to like this one!

This week, most of the effort has been on finalizing the integration of the cold staking zap functionality into Particl Desktop. This was the last remaining item before a new Particl V3 testnet build can be released, and we're happy to say that it has been successfully completed!

That means we've initiated the process of building the new testnet version and will be releasing it publicly in the next 72 hours.

Build and Release the New Testnet Client

All that remains at this point is to build the new testnet version, test it internally, and then release it for one more round of public testing. All the issues highlighted in the progress reports dating from the last testnet client up until now have been resolved. One more time, we're asking for your help in testing the new client and trying to find any potential issue.

More specifically, here are our current areas of interest in regards to this specific testnet round.

  1. Test and verify that any previously mentioned issue is effectively resolved.
  2. Test the disabling of cold staking from the module and determine whether a previous issue is still present or not. In the previous codebase ("Particl V2"), it used to cause problems in some rare cases, but we haven't been able to reproduce it yet on our end. It may, or may not, still be present in Particl V3.

We are targeting the next 72 hours for the release of the new testnet version of Particl V3. So stay tuned for when the news drop on Particl News and the other usual communication channels.

Particl Core Development Report

Aside from the usual merging, core developer Tecnovert has resumed working on Particl's upcoming BasicSwap decentralized exchange protocol.

An update to the swapping protocol has gone live and is in the process of being tested by participants of the closed beta group.

While we haven't made a ton of details on BasicSwap available yet, you can expect that to change soon.

We'll be publishing more information on the application, how it works, how we plan to integrate it into the Particl ecosystem, and what's the longer-term vision we have planned for it shortly after the release of Particl V3 on mainnet. Additionally, you'll be able to test it out for yourself once we initiate the open beta phase around the same time.

Let's all test out the new testnet version of Particl V3 and ensure that it is finally ready for mainnet. Once that is done, we'll be ready to blast forward into the project's next phase and release our new and exciting roadmap.

As always, thank you immensely for your support and patience. But most importantly, for your dedication to Particl and its mission. Have a great weekend, and see you on testnet!
