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.
Testing and Fixing Bugs 🪳
This week, our focus has been on testing the BasicSwap DEX, particularly the integration of its innovative feature that enables bi-directional Monero atomic swaps. As we navigated through this task, we identified a few minor issues in both the codebase and GUI, which we have been diligently investigating and fixing.
A notable issue we encountered involved the display of blockchain transaction fees on BasicSwap, which differed from the actual on-chain fee. This discrepancy required substantial time to investigate and ultimately led to a comprehensive overhaul of the DEX protocol's fee estimation. This modification is now complete.
At this time, we continue to test the new bi-directional Monero atomic swaps and find ourselves in the final stages of this process, steadily moving towards completion.
User Interface 🖥️
We've also been implementing a series of small cosmetic changes and additional code clean-up on the DEX's GUI. We anticipate merging these modifications into the live version shortly, resulting in a minor user interface update.
New Particl Website ✅
We've also been making significant progress on the new website, which we now expect to have a working version in internal testing in the next couple of days. Live launch should follow shortly after that!
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! 👋
