The Rise team announced the release of the core v18.104.22.168 testnet on July 20. After more developments and enhancement the Rise core 1.1.0/1.1.1 was launched yesterday, August 8. Details of the release have been published in the official Medium and explain that the latest release is simply a better version of the core 1.0.0. There are no major changes, although the team was working around three aspects:
- Improve security
- Improve code quality
- Improve performances
However, the team has made it clear that it has achieved major milestones with the release. The core 1.1.0/1.1.1 is a great achievement to the network and the community.
The development team is aware of the recent attacks on the blockchain. Bugs have become a nightmare in the blockchain community. However, Rise has not left any stone unturned when it comes to ensuring the security of its blockchain. Therefore, security has been essential to the success of the mainnet, becoming one of the major objectives of the protocol. The post on the Medium explains:
“In RISE core, we have created different layers that act as “Firewalls” in the attempt to stop unintended and unwanted effects. Imagine this concept as light casted through three layers of gauze with varying thickness of weave. The light that transmits all the way through is “good” while the casted light is the “bad”.”
The layers function by statically validating the checks that remove the chaff data from making it to the next layer. In addition to that, they carry out logic validation using the existing database values as well as ensuring database constraints.
A sizeable amount of time was also spent on improving the quality of the code. Well, isn’t this what is expected of a development team? But, Rise has gone beyond the expectations to ascertain that the code is improved a notch higher. For example, it has upgraded from node 6 to 8, the TypeScript has been upgraded from 2.6 to 2.8 and the PostGres from 9.6 to 10. Other code based improvements were achieved as well, the details can be found on the official release Medium. Significantly, the team says:
“We removed a considerable amount of duplicated/similar code, which means now the RISE codebase is even more concise, robust, easier to test and understand.”
Performance is a major factor of core 1.10/1.1.1 release. The code has been optimized in various aspects in order to achieve the ultimate level of performance. Rise is envisioning at least 7,000 transactions per second (TPS). The development assured the community that more release will follow in the wake of the mainnet launch.
