Development and Products
- Completed the application of Redspot v0.4 proposal, and help completed the Redspot v0.3 review.
- Implemented the v0.4 proposal in the middle of this month, Docker compilation, chain types, multi-contract compilation control, file watcher.
- Developed the Redspot browser UI interface. It is expected that 80% of the functions in Redspot v0.4 have been completed.
Designed and implemented the StorableMap class, self-enumerable Map storage,and the StorableArray class, refactored the Storage part, and completed the implementation of the @packed annotation. Fixed bugs in the implementation of @event.
All compiled extension codes are migrated to Ask! , completely isolated from ASC; the inheritance expansion reference file has been completed, and the settlement contract code must be in the same file.
- Ask! inherit the development and optimization, Ask! globally Import objects Msg, Storage, etc. . Through the definition of Interface, cross-contract call is realized and development is started. Continue to develop cross-contract calls through interface calls, and code generation is basically completed.
- Start to develop and use Json to generate metadata.json.
Completed the prototype design of Europa products. Submitted a development proposal for Europa v0.3
- Europa v0.2 Code Review is over. Fixed the problem of parse failure in the Name Section of the compiled Wasm file due to the Rust version upgrade.
- Fixed the problem of missing SS58 version in Metadata, increased the maximum contract code limit to 4M, and the next version lifted the contract size limit.
Support custom storage interface, Wasmtime, std / no_std conditional compilation, all Host Functions of Pallet-Contracts and customized Runtime-Interface. Ceres has currently iterated 5 versions and completed the Beta version of the Ceres command-line tool.
- The new official website is online, the new interface system displays the user’s usage data more clearly than before.
- Fixed the problem that KV message subscription is not cancelled. Fixed the problem that the disconnected memory of Websocket is not cleaned up. Added PM2 process status monitoring and chain health status monitoring. Fixed a bug where long-time subscribed links returned empty data.
- Added a new Polkadot node and Kusama provided more powerful concurrency capabilities.
- In this month, polkadot.io nodes cannot provide service, In this process, Elara took over the main traffic and provided high-quality access, which proved the superiority of the system behind Elara (the back of Elara is not a simple node cluster, but uses Patract’s self-developed technology).
- Created a new repo https://github.com/patractlabs/patracts to implement the new contract specifications established by Patract.
- Designed the contract deposit model, adopted the method of charging by byte + storage, each time the contract is created/called, the deposit will be deducted from the caller’s Gas Fee when the storage is increased, and the deposit will be stored in the public deposit pool, and the storage will be reduced and returned Reduce the deposit of the corresponding deposit to the caller.
- Initial implementation of the contract deposit model, in the debugging and verification stage, it is expected that it will be opened to the outside for testing.
#Contract storage deposit model
- Analyzed the shortcomings of the storage lease model of the Substrate Contract module, compared with the team storage deposit model scheme, and output an analysis article.
- Discussed the pros and cons of the current contract storage deposit model with the official Parity developers, discussed the decoupling of the upper-level ink! language function from the underlying leasing model, and participated in planning the future development direction of the module.
- Summarized and analyzed all Extrinsic and Event types.
- Completed the Substrate storage structure document.
- Completed the Substrate streamlined class diagram.
- Completed the logical design of the page display of the Staking module.
- Drawn prototype pages related to account details, democratic governance, and councils in PatraScan, and write corresponding API documents.
- Added Treasury related API.
- Reorganized PatraScan back-end architecture according to Patract-Archive.
v0.1 version (based on Rocksdb storage version)
- Refactored the Actor model to make it decoupled and componentized, and added the Dispatcher component for message distribution (such as Kafka). Added the missing storage of the original Genesis block, add Child Trie related storage, and add Finalized Block data.
- Debuged and fixed the v0.1 version problems.
v0.2 version (based on substrate source code)
- Used the — chain method to specify and adapted Dev and DOT Genesis Json files.
- Used a similar macro expansion method to generate code without rely on Runtime, and re-implements the minimum set required by Mock Runtime.
- After the Block Import is finished, writed DB and MQ, including Blocks, Storages, Version, Metadata.
