With the week coming to an end, we’ve prepared a new Particl V3 progress report we’d like to share with you. It highlights all the progress made over Particl V3 and indicates what the items that are going to be focused on next week and beyond are.

This week, we can confirm that both the new governance module and the feature to export orders into a .CSV file have been completed and merged into Particl V3. Both items will be included in the next testnet (and mainnet, of course) release of Particl

Without further ado, here is a list of the items currently in progress and those remaining.

Note: Some items that were present in the last progress report are not included in this one. In all cases, that’s because they have been successfully completed.

In Progress

Issue With Bids Failing but Still Locking Funds for Escrow

An issue identified by the community causes, in some circumstances, bids to fail but still lead to coins being "soft-locked" (or reserved) for escrow. This bug will now have a higher priority now that the two other major items have been crossed off the to-do list (.CSV export and governance module).

Stealth Address Usage

An issue with the Particl Marketplace codebase is that it generates an incredibly large number of stealth addresses when using it. This can cause significant performance issues for heavy users and can lead to long times required to sync wallets.

The issue is currently being investigated, though it is not a simple task. Fixing this behavior will significantly improve the performance of the marketplace for heavy users.

To Be Completed Next

Any New Particl V3 Bug

Any reported bug from the new Particl V3 testnet build will get immediate priority to ensure the client is stable and ready for mainnet release as fast as possible.

If you encounter any issue while testing Particl V3, please report it to the Github Issue page of the particl-desktop repository. This page is located here.

Testing of Particl V3 With New Particl Core Version (Fork-Ready)

Particl V3 will be tested extensively to ensure no issue arises when Particl Core forks in July.

Note: The item "Delete a product from the inventory" has been temporarily de-prioritized and will likely instead be part of a subsequent mainnet release (i.e., Particl Desktop 3.1). This is to give more time to other items as well as research and development required for post-V3 roadmap items.

If you encounter any issue while testing Particl V3, please report it to the Github Issue page of the particl-desktop repository. This page is located here.

We'd like to remind you that, although Particl V3 is mostly ready for mainnet at this time, we still need to wait for Particl's upcoming hardfork to go live before it can be released. That's because Particl Marketplace relies on blind and anon transactions which will be re-enabled with the coming hardfork.

As always, we want to thank you all for your continued support and dedication to Particl’s vision! You are all what makes this project possible. Stay awesome!
