The Weekly Burst Report is a report published every Sunday meant to centralize and describe the major Burst events that happened during the week.
- The PoC Consortium finally released the 1.3.6cg version of the Burst wallet, with the goal of making it more reliable, faster, stronger! It includes a quick sync (syncing the blockchain takes minutes instead of hours) and the MariaDB, H2 and Firebird backends. You can now put your Burst wallet on a USB stick! Windows, Linux and soon Mac compatible. Download it on GitHub.
- The PoC Consortium made a minor update to their mobile wallet. A few bugfixes and 4 new languages: Greek, Hindi, Korean and Tamil.
- Quibus made a major update for his Windows launcher. It is extremely useful for Windows users who want to install a local wallet easily. You can check the complete changelog and download it on GitHub.
- BurstNation is going to launch its own standalone desktop wallet very soon. The developers are waiting for Microsoft to do the process of certification for it to be available as a windows app in the Windows app store. The sourcecode will be released as well.
- The BurstNation explorer website is now completely open source with the release of the code on GitHub.
- The revamping of www.burstcoin.ist is going to start next week. Expect a better organized, more beautiful website soon. The goal is to make burstcoin.ist the go-to source for Burst-related news and articles.
- The pools pool.burst-coin.biz and pool.burstcoin.eu have been shut down.
- There is a Burst giveaway taking place on https://www.questino.tk/exchange/detail/17.
- In the last live meeting, the BurstNation team joked about a Burst toll-free number to help new Burst users. Who knows, they might actually do it some day. 🙂
- The official Twitter account @burstcoin_dev has gone through a redesign as we are approaching the 10k followers.
I am thrilled to mark the end of this busy week with this Burst report. The 1.3.6cg wallet version has been delayed multiple times but is finally there and working like a charm. I recommend all Windows users to take a look at Quibus’ bundle, it’s a great software that makes everything easier. Development is going strong behind the scenes. I have seen how developers worked their way around many problems for the 1.3.6cg version and witnessing their hard work and dedication makes me very confident about the future.
Thank you and see you next week,
