  • IBC Relayers
    Prior to mainnet-1 launch, Agoric will ensure that IBC Relayer infrastructure is sufficient to meet our liveness and latency requirements.  These relayers likely will be run primarily by third parties. Relayer status will be available on a dashboard.
  • Refreshed Vault and BLD Boost front-ends for Inter Protocol
    Initial front ends provided in the Inter Protocol preview release will be upgraded with new functionality and improved look-and-feel. These front ends will be available for third party hosting of the Inter Protocol applications.
  • Kernel message prioritization and backpressure management
    This feature will improve scalability and message delivery in Swingset.
Security
  • Network Coordination and Testing Improvements
    To support the validators who operate the Agoric network, we are collaborating with validators to improve testing, communication, and network upgrade processes. By collaborating on this work with validators, the network will be better prepared to act in the event of a bug or security emergency in the future.
  • Validator Office Hours
    This month's validator office hours, hosted in partnership with the DCF, included a detailed discussion of the recent Cumulative Gas bug that impacted mainnet. In addition to covering lessons learned while resolving this issue, attendees also discussed ways to improve coordination for testnet and mainnet exercises.Watch Here
  • Security Reviews for the Agoric Opco Delegation Program
    In advance of mainnet-1 launch, Agoric OpCo intends to increase the amount of token delegated to program participants who have supported the network since mainnet-0 launch. To be eligible for an increase in stake, current program recipients must pass an evaluation that includes a review of operational, technical, and security baselines.
