[Update] Week #06: Latest AEproject Updates

Latest Dev-Suite Updates #week 06

Description

What we have focused on and working on lately was gathering all of the developer tools into one to form one powerful bundle, called the Development Suite or just Dev-Suite. Dev-suite aims to bring the ultimate experience for developers(having all of the tools and services in one place).
We believe that:
It should not be difficult to build a blockchain application (aepps) on aeternity

Unfortunately we had to deprecate some of the tools in the Dev-Suite scope, but that would give us the time to make the other even better. While the Contracts AEpp is still live, the playground isn’t. We can recommend to use the fire editor for online development. Link will be shared below.

Back to business, new version of aeproject is available - 2.2.0. It is available in Github and npm. Below are the new features and fixes included in the version.

Outlook

AEproject

We have added new command to the tool. Aeproject compatibility will give you the opportunity to test your project against new and latest version of the compiler and the node, without updating the whole project. In that way you will be given the information on wether the update will be painless or some changes should be made. If some errors appear during this, they will be showed in the console so the user can take some action based on the report.

We have some minor but valuable fixes. Versions of the libraries were also bumped to latest.

Token Migration

The token migration is up and running. Support to all users is also provided.

**Note **: If you still have some troubles migrating your tokens, check this video out.
