The week's coming to an end and you know what that means: blog post day!
Without losing any time, let's get down to the crux of this week's update right away!
Particl Desktop Progress Update
As we've mentioned in recent past updates, we've been working on updating Particl Desktop's dependencies to make the client up-to-date with all the latest versions of the packages it uses. This would, notably, fix some launch issues that have been happening with some OS environments such as Manjaro or Fedora Linux distributions.
Today, we can report that the base changes are mostly sorted out and that there are 2 changes left before we can officially mark this task as completed:
- Complete the marketplace tests (ensuring that all updated dependencies work as expected);
- Complete the ZMQ-related changes for electron to ensure that Particl Desktop works without issues on Windows.
Once those changes are done, we'll start the process of building Particl Desktop across the different platforms and then test that all the expected functionality works within these environments. We expect to get started on that during the course of next week.
Once everything is tested and confirmed to be ready, we'll create test builds for internal testing, and if no issues are detected, then we'll end up releasing this as Particl Desktop 3.2.1.
Particl Core and BasicSwap Update
Core Codebase Maintenance 🛠️
We've been keeping up with upstream updates as part of our ever-ongoing effort to maintain Particl Core up-to-date with Bitcoin's latest version. You can always keep track of those changes by following this link.
This week has been a continuation of the work mentioned in our previous progress report. We've made, once again, some good progress on both the DEX's user interface and the ability to pick up multiple or fraction of orders from its order book, although that feature is not fully ready yet.
Listing Seeding Proposal
With product codes now integrated into Particl Desktop 3.2, we can now move ahead with the marketplace listing seeding CCS proposal.
As a reminder, this CCS proposal, headed by Arnold Bansemer and Cryptoguard, aims at populating the marketplace with a significant number of listings and automating some of the processes involved with the publishing of listings and processing of orders.
In the coming weeks, we'll have the first iteration of this proposal ready after which point we'll iterate it over and improve as we move ahead. Because this proposal is being managed in a personal capacity, its development is not part of the official team scope but is going to be a focus for its owners nonetheless for the next few weeks.
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! 👋
