We moved ThreeFold Connect’s backend services from a data storage in Lochristi to TFGrid. From TF Wallet, to TF account, and TFNews, all active services are migrated by using Helm charts.
On this release, we added Mattermost as one of our deployable decentralised solutions. Mattermost is a secure, open source platform for communication, collaboration, and workflow orchestration across tools and teams.
Node upgrades could happen anytime, and it could make solution deployments on different networks incompatible. Therefore, we separated TFPlay into 3 different networks:
- Deployment on TFGrid Mainnet: play.grid.tf
- Deployment on TFGrid Testnet: play.test.grid.tf
- Deployment on TFGrid Devnet: play.dev.grid.tf
This way, if some nodes on one network are being upgraded, deployments on the other nets should not be affected.
There was a change the way how the CU/SU are calculated from the resource units calculations, please see https://library.threefold.me/info/threefold#/resource_units_calc_cloudunits for details. Therefore, we updated the calculations on the minting code (minting v3), as well as adjusted price calculation for workloads on TFchain.
On this release we created minor UX improvements on the existing GetTFT Shop website that create a better experience for our customers, such as improved interactivity, fixed embedded media, revised UX content, improved screen responsiveness, and many more.
Currently we have a few separate capacity explorers for both TFGrid v2 Explorer and TFGrid v3 Explorer. On this release we unified all versions and networks into one explorer, where users can find capacity information on both TFGrid v2 and v3 mainnet, testnet, and devnet. This all-in-one unified Capacity Explorer will be hosted under the domain https://explorer.threefold.io.
On TFGrid v3, node and farm management are also moved to substrate-based blockchains. A farm can be managed by making calls directly to the blockchain using objects created in TFChain called Twins. TFWallet app can reuse the wallet keypair to support a twin. A twin is also associated with a Planetary Network address that is supported by the Threefold Connect App.
Therefore we added a ‘Farm Management’ feature on the TFConnect App that would enable farmers to list their farms and create new ones directly on the mobile app. The ‘Farm Management’ feature will allow users to create new farms, list farms, as well as migrate their farms from TFGrid v2 to TFGrid v3.
