Agent Framework 0.9.0 released

Jan 7, 2021

*Agent Framework v0.9.0 and SOEF 0.3.7 released*

Welcome to 2021, let it be a great one! We’re getting really close to v1.0 and it’s super exciting: after working hard throughout the Christmas and New Year break, we’ve released updates for the agent framework and the SOEF, and there’s more to come: AW-4, SOEF explorer web site, and a ton more.

Agent Framework v0.9.0 Release Notes

Let’s start with the Agent Framework:

  • Proof of representation on the agent communications network (ACN): you can’t misrepresent yourself any more, either intentionally or by accident. This makes the ACN far more secure
  • Added `issue-certificates` CLI command for the proof-of-representation
  • Added automated spell checking for all documentation files
  • Full test coverage on example code: if you see it in the documentation, it should absolutely run!
  • Added fingerprint support with a path
  • Updated the documentation as a result of the huge amount of great feedback we’ve had: do let us know what you think
  • Added support for syncing local and remote registry

We’ve also made a great number of other bug-fixes and improvements, such as in the `MultiAgentManager`, `AgentConfigManager` and more.

SOEF 0.3.7 Release Notes

The SOEF 0.3.7 has considerable internal and a bunch of external improvements:

  • New personality piece for altitude
  • Massively improved networking

  • Preparations for incentivised node operation

And… finally… *we’ve got apps*! A web-based SOEF explorer and an iOS native App for your iPhone. Web-based is online, in final test and is expected to launch any day: if you _need_ it for development purposes, please do get in touch. The iOS app will enter beta testing in the coming week: if you’re interested in taking part in that beta testing, please also get in touch.
