January recap
This month has been heavily focused on fixing Blocknet 4.0 bugs in preparation of the upcoming release. The team decided to push the release back to provide time to add a vote on stake feature that will make it easier for voters to manage votes. When a vote is staked it will be automatically recast on your behalf. Blocknet 4.0 progress can be reviewed in two branches: https://github.com/blocknetdx/blocknet/commits/4.0.0 and https://github.com/blocknetdx/blocknet/commits/feature-voteonstake. Test builds for the Blocknet 4.0 release can be obtained here: https://gitlab.com/blocknetdx/blocknet/pipelines/

February Development Overview
The goal is to release Blocknet 4.0 after the superblock 30. I will continue developing XRouter libraries that will allow developers to query the network without any wallets installed locally. I will also continue working on the Enterprise XRouter Proxy that will support high traffic service node operators. There may be bugs and issues reported over the next few weeks, as a result, I will be working on improvements and bug fixes on the new 4.0 wallet.
