We've also updated the EOS.IO website to better highlight all of the news, releases, and excitement about this software. As well as the new homepage, we have an expanded resources page where we will be regularly new content related to EOS.IO, including announcements, development guides, videos, and community content. EOS Explorer will become the best single location to find out what's new, though of course we will continue to share everything on Steemit and through our mailing list as well.
EOS.IO Dawn 2.0, the next major pre-release, will come by the end of the year. EOS.IO Dawn 2.0 will include several critical features that are not present in EOS.IO Dawn 1.0 including:
- Resource Rate Limiting (preventing spam / abuse)
- Merkle Tree Generation (for cross chain communication)
- Upgrade Management and Governance
- More robust SDK
- General Infrastructure improvements
- Example Snapshot from ERC20 tokens
The goal of EOS.IO Dawn 2.0 is to be functional enough that one could launch a live blockchain.
There's still much to be done, but everyone working on the EOS.IO software is very excited to have reached the end of Phase 1 in such good shape. We look forward to continuing to deliver on the promise of blockchain technology.
