LibDogecoin makes remarkable progress
Dogecoin Foundation senior software engineer Ed Tubbs has highlighted the significant progress made by the libdogecoin project in the past two months.
Ed Tubbs shares a throwback to a late-May update he shared regarding the Libdogecoin project. He states that notable progress has been made since the last update.
LibDogecoin is a Dogecoin building block, a C library that enables lightweight, direct integration of Dogecoin into several platforms without requiring developers to have in-depth blockchain understanding.
LibDogecoin is presently preparing for a new release. Ed Tubbs stated in his tweet that contributors are already prepared and looking forward to the release of v0.1.3. In line with this, TPM2 and validation codes are being prepared for the pull request process.
