Hello Steemian friends,
This is a witness log that will give community brief update about my latest project works.
Outline: Witness update, Other project logs,
good-karmarunning HF19 (0.19.1) which was released recently to solve bandwidth error messages for relatively new users. We (witnesses) have tried to address this issue by increasing blocksize when issue was report first, hoping that would solve the issue, but later it was found that there is a bug within bandwidth calculation and integer overflow. Devs quickly fixed the bug and released candidate softfork release 0.19.1. As of now 15 of top 20 witnesses running 0.19.1 release. Witness parameters APR set to 0.1% to help pegging of SBD, will watch market and revert back to 0% if necessary, since majority of the SBD held on exchanges and giving APR doesn’t help much to encourage users to hold it. Other parameters, Price feed bias 0%, Registration fee is 0.3 STEEM.
eSteem - short progress update, development of new version is going great. Some of the exciting feature we are working on is Activity manager that lets you see all recent activity for your account. Also leaderboard and initial implementation of achievements is being worked on alongside performance improvements and bug fixes. Released eSteem FAQ, feel free to comment your question there if you would like some clarity.
Server maintenance done 9 days ago to improve notification and image upload services.
