Project health is largely the same as in previous update. We are have added some unique features around dump and restore (our chain reset mechanism) and we have a number of casual contributors. We still lack maintainer diversity outside of Monax. There is a steady flow of interest and we a are pushing plenty of code relating to our continued heavy use of Burrow.
Vent has been merged into burrow. Vent dynamically creates SQL database tables from EVM events according to some specification files maintaining its offset in the chain as it goes. In addition, we can dump the chain state using a new dump tool. This state can then be provided as an initial state for a new chain. This allows us to make backwards incompatibility changes. Several backwards incompatible changes will be needed for supporting new features like the like proposal mechanism. The proposal mechanism has received further fixes to make it production ready.
Create Q1 2019 Burrow Roadmap.
|Work item||Effort (1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13)||Priority|
|NameReg extension to support authenticated namespaces (including design)||13||Medium|
|Burrow-side ABI registry mechanism (probably based on above)||8||Low|
|Prototype 'new train' WASM execution||13||Low|
|Implement token economics primitives||13||Medium|
We have an active side project looking at using modern compiler tooling to compile Solidity to WASM and are interested in being part of any future movement to share code/structures through WASM execution and interfaces. To that end we are planning to look into the possibility of mounting Go wagon as a WASM interpreter next to our EVM.
