Development Update: Spring Cleaning

The Milestone 1 developer release of OpenBazaar 2.0 is available and Milestone 2 will be released in early April!

Here is a recap of the capabilities of the Milestone 1 release:

Milestone 1 Summary

This release is meant solely for developers and those building or intending to build on top of the OpenBazaar platform. You can read more about what the release entails here.

Since this is a release meant for development, the functions available in Milestone 1 are very minimal. They include:

  • Users can download and install the client and server from Github, and use it to fill in their profile, store info, and post listings
  • The network can host listings, stores, and user profiles
  • Users can follow and unfollow

 

Here is what’s been happening in the OpenBazaar development universe so far in March:

Version 2.0

  • Managing a variety of pull requests (PRs)
  • Small patches and changes on the front and back end
  • OB1 Co-Founder Dr. Washington Sanchez has secret project that has been turning out way better than he expected. Make sure you bug him on Twitter to try to get more information out of him on this one.
