Hello GRIDNET Enthusiasts and Cyber Connoisseurs,
You’ve been patiently (and sometimes not-so-patiently) awaiting the release of GRIDNET Core 1.1.1, hanging onto our every word, digging through our cryptic updates, and possibly attempting some arcane rituals for good measure.
Well, surprise! We’re here to tell you that 1.1.1 isn’t coming.
But don’t panic! Put down that pitchfork! Because while you were waiting for 1.1.1, our tireless team has been brewing up something even better. We’ve been adding so many new features, improvements, and polish to the system, that we’ve just leapfrogged 1.1.1 altogether. That’s right - we’re jumping straight to version 1.2!
Yes, we’ve skipped a beat and a version number to deliver to you the monumental GRIDNET Core 1.2. Imagine a parade of new functionalities, enhancements and bug fixes all marching to the beat of “More! Better! Faster!”
So, buckle up and get ready to explore all the delights of GRIDNET Core 1.2. And as always, keep the feedback, encouragement, (and the impromptu dance breaks) coming!
We’re absolutely thrilled to announce the long-anticipated release of GRIDNET Core version 1.2. This monumental update is one we’ve all been eagerly awaiting, marking a significant milestone in our ongoing journey. Our diligent and committed team has been working around the clock, perfecting this comprehensive update that encompasses far-reaching advancements, enhancements, and improvements.
The scope of changes incorporated into this release is so vast that an exhaustive list would be impractical. But, we’d love to highlight a few key features that represent the incredible depth of work undertaken:
GridScript++: We now support GridScript++, a new object-oriented programming language designed to streamline and enhance the developer experience within the GRIDNET environment and to rival solutions such as Solitdity in Ethereum. Dedicated article available here
Decentralized Voting Additions: a huge update to the decentralized filesystem of GRIDNET OS! Now includes support for integrated decentralized voting mechanisms, with what is important - decentralized access rights’ provisioning - the first thing of such a kind on our planet! Providing the community with greater power and influence. Dedicated article available here
Zero Knowledge Proof Authorization for WebRTC Swarms: Enhancing privacy and security, we’ve incorporated a custom Zero Knowledge Proof Authorization for WebRTC Swarms, taking GRIDNET’s commitment to user privacy to a whole new level.
Checkpoints Mechanics: We’ve integrated robust ‘checkpoints’ mechanics into our system, ensuring the secure and smooth operation of GRIDNET in the face of future updates. Dedicated article available here
Rewritten OpenCL Sub-system: We’ve restructured and optimized our OpenCL subsystem for greater efficiency and performance. It was tested thoroughly across Intel/NVIDIA and AMD GPUs and CPUs.
Improved NAT Traversal & Peer Discovery: Enhancements have been made to facilitate better NAT traversal and peer discovery, promising a more seamless and intuitive user experience. Now, we’ve tested GRIDNET Core 1.2 in dozens if network configurations arriving at wonderful results, hopefully it works for you as well!
Improved Autonomous configuration: nodes are now way more inteligent during the autonomous bootstrap phase. All it takes is to launch the executable.
New Network Diagnostics Mode: in this mode GRIDNET Core would be performing network analysis only allowing Operators to investigate any issues.
New GridScript 1.0 utilities additions and improvements to GridScript 1.0 utiltiies - including the ‘chain’ utility which effectively facilitates a blockchain explorer. More info here.
Improved Self-Diagnostics there’s now an additional self-diagnostics phase during each bootstrap of GRIDNET Core which aims to test the OpenCL sub-system (all the CPUs and GPUs). In other words, just after few seconds the software is launched it would proceed straight to ‘mining’ of artificial data, just like it would had it been trying to win the Proof-of-Work race within the network. It would autonomously detect issues with drivers, suggest you to update these etc. By the end of this a detailed report is shown.
Other Performance Enhancements & Bug Fixes: Innumerable additions, improvements, and bug fixes have been made, including significant performance enhancements that make GRIDNET faster and more robust than ever.
