As we conclude the week, it is time to review the progress that has been made in the past few days. Let us take a moment to evaluate the advancements achieved in the past few days.
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, however, that we are currently observing a delay that is impacting the the development process of Particl Desktop which we hope to resolve shortly.
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.
Setup Wizard 🧙
This week, our efforts have been focused on finalizing the setup wizard for BasicSwap. This tool will facilitate the installation and eventual launching of the DEX via a user-friendly interface. This advancement aligns us with the convenience of a .exe type of executable, essentially enabling you to configure and launch BasicSwap without the need to navigate through the command line interface.
The setup wizard is largely complete, but we are still refining its design and the overall user journey within the GUI. Therefore, we've opted to hold the release of the v2.0.2 GUI until the setup wizard is ready.
Simultaneously, we have identified and are addressing a few GUI bugs within the 2.0.2 version of the BasicSwap user interface, and so we're fixing those at the same time.
We've been adding some functions based on user feedback, notably the ability to prune data off of your local instance. For example, in the next update, you'll be able to delete past offer and bid history (as long as they are completed).
Please bear in mind that this enhancement is primarily intended to improve user experience rather than privacy. If an instance were to be scrutinized after data deletion, remnants of previous swaps may still be detected. We plan to introduce thorough data pruning in a privacy-conscious manner in the future, as this requires additional development.
Furthermore, we've upgraded the core versions of the Particl and Monero blockchains. We highly recommend that you update them to operate the most recent version.
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! 👋
