December recap
In December I’m continued working on the new Blocknet 4.0 release (formerly referred to as v18) that we are planning on releasing in January. This work includes fixing bugs discovered by the QA team as well as stability improvements and adding support for OSes including Windows, ARM, Raspberry Pi, Mac and Linux (Xenial, Bionic, Debian). I also implemented unlock for staking only feature on the 4.0 codebase. Blocknet 4.0 was also added to the main blocknet repository and can be reviewed here: https://github.com/blocknetdx/blocknet/commits/4.0.0 Test builds for the upcoming Blocknet 4.0 release can be obtained here: https://gitlab.com/blocknetdx/blocknet/pipelines/

January Development Overview
Release Blocknet 4.0! Immediately after the new wallet release I plan to begin developing the XRouter libraries that will allow developers to query the network without any wallets installed locally. This will improve support for enterprise customers and server environments. I will also be working on bug fixes on the new 4.0 wallet pending issues reported by users.
