This replace was written and supplied by Litecoin MimbleWimble lead developer David Burkett.

Coding

Final month I merged the node code on prime of the LTC 0.21 launch codebase (see July replace), so this month started with me merging the pockets code. It seems that lots modified within the pockets between 0.18 and 0.21, so I needed to spend just a few weeks redesigning how we calculate and handle MWEB addresses and keys. The top outcome was even cleaner than we had with 0.18 although, so this turned out to be a great factor, regardless of requiring the additional effort 🙂

For the code monkeys amongst you, nearly all of the adjustments have been in: scriptpubkeyman.cpp 1, mweb_pockets.cpp, and Keychain.cpp.

Except for that, I had a number of bugs and exams to repair because of the merge, which I used to be capable of just do in time for the auditors at Quarkslab to incorporate of their overview. On that notice…

Critiques & Audits

I’m working very intently with one of many Quarkslab auditors now. She has been going over the code and is within the preliminary levels of testing. We have been capable of get her synced towards mainnet, and she or he additionally requested I create a testnet for them, which they’re now related to and experimenting on.

Releases

Whereas we’re now merged on prime of 0.21 launch code, we truly haven’t even launched 0.21 but 😀. I used to be requested to take over managing this launch, so I spent the previous week getting that launch code prepared. Assuming I can herd the opposite devs collectively (which is lots like herding cats), then I anticipate we’ll have the ability to have 0.21 launched by my subsequent replace. This can embrace, amongst many different issues, assist for Taproot 🚀. Hopefully we are able to get 0.21 adopted shortly, and miners signalling for Taproot, as a result of the next month, I’ll be reducing the discharge for MWEB (which I’m calling 0.22-ish till somebody provides me an official launch quantity). The discharge date for 0.22-ish will likely be extremely depending on the outcomes of the audit, which gained’t be fully completed till mid-October. So whereas we’ll stay optimistic for an October thirty first 🎃 launch for now, write the date down very frivolously in pencil, not pen 😉

Notable Mentions

Ryan Wright is an absolute baller. Whereas I used to be looking for a quiet road nook to stay (see: background 18), he swooped in with a 100 LTC donation 2 simply earlier than I listed my home available on the market 😜

MWEB is now totally funded! 💰 🤑 💵

All extra donations collected will proceed to fund me for future growth tasks. There’s nonetheless a lot extra I need to do: Dandelion for P2P-level privateness, CoinSwap assist, syncing enhancements, Atomic Swaps, watch-only addresses, MWEB assist for {hardware} wallets & gentle purchasers, and far, rather more. So nonetheless chip in 6 at any time when you may 🙏
