Burrow is doing better than ever before. We've added some significant features and random people from the internet are fixing our off-by-ones. We also have a new team, Damascus Mile, with funding from the UK Cabinet Office who are building out a logistics platform on top of Burrow.
- Have you switched from master to main in all your repos?
- Have you implemented repolinter.json in all your repos?

Overall Activity in the Past Quarter
Chat remains relatively quiet generating a handful of messages per month. Github has seen some small but deep patches which seems to indicate there is some 'serious' usage going on. Damascus Mile has chosen to use Burrow as an ideal 'root stock' for their logistics project - hopefully evidence of Burrow's effort to be extensible and modular. Development activity has picked up quite a bit over previous two quarters.
Two major roadmap items are in play:
- State-splitting - providing a better way to divide account state while preserving commitments/proofs. Also the possibility of projecting out some state in an 'export' while preserving proofs. The relevance being around state channels/optimistic roll-ups where we would like to be able to provide a more granular subset of state than our current single global state root allows.
- Providing more practical support for WASM contracts (including AssemblyScript being given our Typescript leanings) by providing client library support and doing more testing.
We have added Ommi Shimizu from Monax.
We have had around five new individual contributors this quarter and interest in using us from Damascus Mile.
