Last week we announced the release of the new counterparty-lib version, v9.51.4 with bug fixes and major performance enhancements, including the ‘transaction chaining’ feature and resolving the counterparty-server availability issues. Last week we also pushed changes to the develop branch of counterparty-lib which significantly improves reorg processing making it almost instantaneous. We expect these changes to be released to master within a few weeks, as soon as all pending testing is complete.
In addition, we made significant improvements to counterblock (used by Counterwallet), which can be seen on the fixes1 branch. We’re in the process of testing the improvements and plan to release them to master as soon as possible.
Finally, we’re testing counterparty-server against bitcoind 0.11.1 and have so far found no issues.
When it comes to updates from the community, we’re happy to report that the amount of community contribution is increasing each week and as of recently we’ve started receiving pull requests and commits from other parties in the ecosystem. One great example is the Tokenly team who are contributing to the development of the main Counterparty library and adding new features to counterparty_lib.
Also, we have some initial conversations going around possibly finding longer term help to work on the development of Counterwallet and other Counterparty services. This is still in its initial phase and we’ll keep you updated on any progress.
