Dev Status Update — October, 2020
Published by the IOTA dev team every month, this update will provide you with news and updates about our key projects! Please click here if you want to see the last status update.
The research department is also releasing a monthly update that you might want to read.
IOTA 1.5 (also known as Chrysalis) is the mainnet’s intermediate stage before Coordicide is complete. You can read more about the strategy for releasing Chrysalis here.
The Chrysalis phase 1 components were deployed to mainnet in August. The engineering team is now working on Chrysalis phase 2.
The current plan is to have a publicly available testnet for Chrysalis phase 2 ready as soon as possible. The testnet will allow us to test the node integrations, client libraries, and the new wallet. Partners and anyone integrating on top of the current network will be able to start working with the new APIs and functionality. In November, we will also be auditing the core functionality.
We have released a new version of the Pollen network. The latest version of the GoShimmer software, v0.3.0 contains the full integration of the Decentralized Random Number Generator (dRNG) module. You can read up on the update here.
The team is working on the next large milestone, Nectar. The components that will make up the Nectar network are being iteratively released on the testnet to allow us to test individual Coordicide components.
You can read more about Pollen, Nectar, and Honey, concepts we introduced to talk about the milestones on the path to Coordicide, in this post.
You can follow the project on its GitHub repository....
