We’re also making the last release of the original iota.lib.js (now at version 0.5.0) with some significant changes. All new development will now be taking place in the new TypeScript library, only important bug fixes will be made in iota.lib.js.
Our next goal is to progress the development of iota.js from 1.0.0-beta to 1.0.0. With that, we’d also like to invite our community to help with the development. We believe that making changes to the codebase is now easier than ever.
Some of the improvements we want to achieve for 1.0.0:
- Persistent storage interface and caching
- Implementation of a lighter HTTP API using flat buffers
- Performance improvements by utilizing native code from the Entangled C client
And much more!
Major thanks to Chris Dukakis for all the effort he has put into this project and to our community for all the input along the way!
