We’re thrilled to announce the release of GRIDNET Core version 1.3.5. This version brings a plethora of enhancements that not only elevate the software’s performance but also ensure its seamless integration across various operations. Here’s an in-depth overview:

Performance and Stability

  • Enhanced Stability & Performance: Dramatic improvements have been made at multiple layers, enhancing the overall stability and performance of the software.

  • Synchronization Protocol Improvements: Significant advancements in the synchronization protocol, especially in the processing of chain-proofs. Tasks that previously took more than 10 minutes are now completed in mere seconds.

  • StatusBar Mechanics Refinement: As highlighted on our Twitter, the status bar mechanics have been enhanced. Now, each subsystem, including individual connections, can establish its dedicated status bar view. All such views are prioritized based on internal heuristics.

  • Bootstrap Sequence: Improvements to the initial bootstrap sequence ensure a smoother startup.

Languages & Scripting

  • GridScript++ & GridScript Extensions: Both GridScript++ and GridScript languages have undergone extensive modifications and improvements. While it’s vast to enumerate all the changes here, watch out for the upcoming comprehensive documentation and tutorials.

  • GridScript Utility Addition: A new utility has been added to GridScript that allows users to analyze the market depth and total market capitalization of GRIDNET OS in real-time.

Security Enhancements

  • Embedded HTTP/Web-socket Server Patch: Following our regular security assessments, we identified a potential vulnerability in our embedded HTTP/web-socket server. A swift patch, incorporating both whitelisting and blacklisting approaches, has been applied. A separate security report will provide more detailed insights.

  • Executable Integrity Verification: The software now includes an autonomous integrity verification of the executable to ensure its authenticity.

  • Decentralized Certificates: A novel mechanism for authenticating files and even specific fragments has been introduced. This will bolster the Two-Tier decentralized file system and the anticipated automatic update feature in the upcoming releases.

Decentralized Operations & UI

  • Decentralized UI Sessions Enhancement: Significant improvement in the support of decentralized UI sessions has been realized, primarily due to the introduction of a dedicated thread pool. This pool can now prioritize threads as necessary (Note: administrative privileges might be essential for optimal functioning).

  • Improved Multithreading: The entire concept of multithreading has undergone vast improvements, permeating all layers of the software.

Blockchain Operations

  • Support for Alternative Histories: Enhanced support for forks ensures that even events from the Genesis Block could theoretically be revisited.

  • Extended Checkpoint Support: As discussed in our dedicated article in the GRIDNET Magazine, we’ve improved and expanded the support for Checkpoints, ensuring the stability and integrity of the blockchain’s history.

  • Handling of Software Updates: In the scenario where a new version of GRIDNET Core brings changes in the processing of past blocks, the software autonomously decides on the best course of action, including potential revalidations.

HTTP Sub-system

  • HTTP Sub-system Enhancement: Significant performance and stability enhancements have been made to the internal HTTP sub-system.

While this release note highlights several notable features, there’s much more under the hood. Our continuous development endeavors have been meticulously documented on Twitter and showcased live on YouTube. We remain committed to transparent, open development and to providing our community with the best software experience.

A United Vision for a Decentralized Future

As we forge ahead with the GRIDNET OS vision, it’s essential to acknowledge the collective strength that drives this movement forward. We firmly believe that the future of applications and services hinges on a decentralized, freedom-oriented paradigm, and it’s only through our collective efforts that such a dream can materialize.

No single entity or individual can catalyze this seismic shift alone. It’s a symphony of collaboration, innovation, and shared ideals. We owe an immense debt of gratitude to our dedicated Operators, who, minute by minute, deploy our software, thereby ushering in a new era of decentralization. Your unwavering commitment, passion, and trust in the GRIDNET vision are not just advancing a software solution; they are propelling humanity towards a brighter, more decentralized future.

Let’s stand united, shoulder to shoulder, continuing our journey of reshaping the digital world, always keeping freedom, autonomy, and decentralization at the heart of our endeavors. Our collective journey has only just begun, and together, we will pave the way for a world that empowers each individual and celebrates collective progress.

Here’s to our shared future – decentralized, free, and vibrant. :earth_africa::rocket:

Thank you for your support and trust in GRIDNET !
