As the week ends, let's take a moment to look back at what we've achieved in the past few days and see what we've got to look forward to in the week to come.
Particl Desktop 💻️
We're still completing the items outlined in our previous updates, namely including enhancing Tor server capabilities and making a variety of minor improvements.
Please note, that we are observing a delay that is impacting the development process of Particl Desktop which we are working on resolving.
Particl Core 🔗
Core Codebase Maintenance 🛠️
As always, we consistently stay up-to-date with Bitcoin's latest version by regularly incorporating upstream updates into Particl Core. You can monitor these changes by visiting this link.
Work on 26.x Codebase Begins 🛠️
We've also begun work on Particl Core 26.x. Based off of Bitcoin's 26.x codebase, it introduces experimental support for the v2 transport protocol as defined by Bitcoin Improvement Proposal 324 (BIP324).
While it is uncertain yet when we will be ready to release it, you can read more here.
This week, we experienced a bit of a slowdown in regards to BasicSwap DEX due to a particular bug we encountered during testing of some of the components included in the upcoming GUI update (v2.1). The bug affected the readability of SMSG messages when the decryption of an encrypted wallet failed, resulting in offers not appearing as expected on the order book. We have now fully resolved this issue, although it took a considerable amount of time to diagnose.
It's important to note that while this bug posed no risk to user funds or security, it did have a significant impact on the user experience when triggered. To ensure the best possible experience on BasicSwap DEX, we recommend updating to the latest version. You can find instructions on how to update to the latest version here).
User Interface (GUI 2.1) and Installer 🖥️
We are making steady progress on testing and finalizing the next versions of the installation wizard and BasicSwap's user interface, and still need a few extra days to finish everything up.
Note that most of our efforts this week were concentrated on troubleshooting and resolving the bug mentioned above.
As always, we thank you immensely for your passion and dedication to Particl and what it's working towards achieving. None of it would be possible without you all!
We wish you a great weekend we'll see you all back on Monday! 👋
