Enhancing Node Communication, Developing Monitoring Tools and Deprecating the “Epoch” Name


#1

Hey everyone,

The dev team is busy working on producing Roma Release 1.3.0. by the end of this week.

They are focused on three main things: adding support for NAT-PMP/UPNP, introducing a transactions monitoring on the Roma network and renaming epoch node to “aeternity".

The support for NAT-PNP and UPNP protocols will ensure that the port-forwarding is working. This should make the process of deploying a node with open ports much easier and, therefore, significantly improve the stability and responsiveness of the overall network.

Plus, we will introduce infrastructure for transaction monitoring that will post a new transaction every minute onto the network and check if the transaction is included in one of the following blocks.

Best,
Albena
