[Update] Week #22: Latest Dev-Suite Updates

Latest Dev-Suite Updates

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

Last two weeks we have developed some new functionalities and also managed to fix known issues for the tools. Also, we were able to release new versions of all of the tools with the latest JS-SDK version in order to support the Fortuna hard fork. New versions of the tools were also released.

Outlook
