Particl Desktop Development Progress

On the desktop client side of things, this week has once again been spent on fixing various issues/bugs and adding in general improvements. We're happy to report that we'll be ready to release Particl Desktop 3.1.1 in the coming days, likely next week.

This release will cover the most pressing fixes and allow the team to focus more exclusively on the new functionalities planned for Particl Desktop 3.2 such as in-market messaging (buyer <> seller).

Particl Core and BasicSwap

As for Particl Core, the backporting of Taproot into Particl Core 0.19.x.x has been completed. To that end, a new pre-release has been published this week. Note that this release also includes some minor fix about abandoning specific types of transactions (edge case).

As this release introduces major changes in the code due to the Taproot integration, we invite you to test it out extensively to ensure everything runs smoothly across all environments. Particl Core is intended to become a full release before the Taproot hardfork happening in a couple of days.

As always, we thank you all for your passion, dedication, and contributions. Don't forget to cast your vote for the second team funding request; its voting period starts tomorrow at block 1,107,000!

We wish you all a wonderful weekend and we'll see you, as always, back on Monday! πŸ‘‹
