Sia dev update for week of September 16th 2 Nebulous repos were updated. 8 issues were created, 11 were closed. 17 PRs were merged. GitLab users David Vorick, Christopher Schinnerl, Luke Champine, and Matthew Sevey had code contributions into Sia. It was a busy week for the Sia development team! A variety of bugs have been squashed such as fixing the “DaemonUpdateGet” function which was causing siac update to fail for some users, a number of missing file locks were fixed which may have been causing issues with Sia contracts, and various small bugs in the Sia testing infrastructure. The team also tackled some new features expected in the 1.4.0 release such as setting timestamps in the new .sia file format, ability to upload directories to Sia via the API, and adding Threefish support, which will enable significantly better upload and download speeds for users who were CPU bound during file encryption and decryption. Threefish also enables the ability to update encrypted files already stored on the Sia network. The Sia team also introduced various issue templates into GitLab. If you need to open an issue you can now select whether it’s a bug report, feature request, or programming task.
