Elastos Weekly Updates – 15 March 2019


This week the Elastos website got a developer-friendly upgrade and teams page, Rong Chen spoke at Token2049 in Hong Kong, and the core technical teams continued with several updates. 

Let’s recap. 

Technical Dynamics

– The Carrier plugin is working properly on Android, and the related Demo can also run normally;
– iOS development has been completed for Elastos Carrier plugin, to be tested and verified
– Started integrating SPV wallet and DID plugin;
– Stress test of Runtime switching DApps, DApps interaction, etc. The result is normal with no page or memory exception;
– Tested runtime related events of the DApp. There are still some problems to be solved in the corresponding pause and resume events when the DApp is switched;
– DApp Launcher now adds error message box;

– Continuous improvement of IPFS node/cluster Restful HTTP APIs test case set code;
– Continuous improvement of the IPFS Android SDK and interface testing
– Porting the standard IPFS-based FUSE App to the Hive platform. Currently, Linux is working properly and synchronization efficiency needs to be improved;

– Improved support for Carrier offline messaging on Windows, Android and iOS platforms;
– Continuous optimization of the Carrier Native SDK for the launch process of tests/apps, etc.
– Optimization of the static link version of the Carrier iOS SDK;
– Fixed some bugs in iOS and Android SDK;
– Updated the Carrier iOS Remoter sample app and enabled it to support the latest version of the Carrier SDK;
– According to community developer suggestions, try to register the Carrier iOS library as a cocopods public library. iOS developers should be able to use the carrier SDK via pod install to avoid source code compilation;

DPoS consensus
– Abandoned Utility Warehouse, and replaced all projects relying on ELA/utils package;
– Determined the DPoS protocol version, disconnected the node that does not support the DPoS protocol during the handshake;
– Improved white box testing framework, completed routine process testing, and started abnormal testing;
– After the Arbitrator becomes inactive, the recovery policy is changed to resume the transaction by manual sending;
– Arbitrator RPC requests to add Authorization and IP whitelisting capabilities, as well as unit test code writing and testing;

Main chain
– Modified the CLI naming rules to be consistent with the RPC Method, complete the CLI documentation, and fixed the ela-cli bug;
– Added cross-chain transfer freeze address generation;

Token chain
– Completed deployment to the main network;
– Added Token chain detection program: transaction report information, block height is not synchronized, node hangs detection, block height report, node fork detection, block height does not grow;
– Completed the Token blockchain browser test network deployment script, server preparation and deployment online;
– ID chain, Token chain and other sidechain RPC requests to add Authorization and IP whitelisting functions, as well as unit test code writing and testing;

– Refactoring signature logic, also preparing for support for cold wallets;
– Transaction of raw data is increased by base64 compression, minimizing the size of the front-end QR code;
– Allow the same private key to create different multi-sign wallets;
– Updated the checkpoint of the chain parameter;

Android/iOS wallet test
– Super node voting election test
