Ardor testnet countdown
January 26, 2017, 04:44:33 pm

Getting closer to the Ardor testnet release but still some way to go.
The server code is nearly complete and the APIs are mostly stable.
Still some lingering issues with decimal conversions which we are about to fix soon. (solved)

Most of the work will now focus on getting the client UI ready for release. Lot's of small details to take care of.
In order to keep you informed, I would like to start posting regular updates about our progress and start crossing out the tasks from the list below until we ready for release.

Here is a list of remaining tasks which we would like to complete before the official release:
- More work on the Coin Exchange page and tables (Still needs more testing)
- Prefix each MS currency name with the name of the chain to which it belongs (Still needs more testing)
- Ability to link from a child chain transaction to the ChildChainBlock transaction in which it was bundled (Done)
- Improve the entity properties modal to support entities like orders and offers (Done)
- Format amounts and links in the entity properties modal
- Test and fix currency reserve/claim tables and modals (Done)
- Remove child chain specific widgets from the Ardor UI (Done)
- Reomve Ardor specific widgets from the child chain UI (Done)
- UI for the new "by holding" dividend modal (Done)
- UI for the "by holding" dividend history (Done)

In addition we also need to double check the UI of the following modules for problems caused by the mode to per chain entities:
AE - still needs more testing
MS - still needs more testing
Messages - done, few open issues
DGS
Voting
Cloud Data - done
Aliases - done
Phasing
Account Control - some problems
Leasing - done
Account Properties - done
Account Monitor - done, needs testing
Shuffling - done

what are some proposed practical ideas that people would actually use?

some ideas off the top of my head:

- btc exchange using real testnet btc
- ether exchange using real testnet ether
- midi music player. store the .mid files in the data cloud. most files are less than 40kb
- pay on reveal feature? is there something like this setup? say I have a bunch of gift card codes, and if someone pays me, it will reveal the code to them.

Are there translations to do? Or the testnet is going to be english-only?

With regards to testing:
We are maintaining an extensive set of unit tests both for the server and client.
We are also testing all this manually again and again and again.
But of course user feedback is of very high importance, that's why we are eager to release this on testnet so that users can experiment with Ardor

Good that you bring this up, in fact we did not update our translations since release 1.7 over a year ago.
Once we release Ardor on testnet we will probably implement a bounty program for translations as usual.

Thanks!
I understand that you don't want to say it before people hang you on it.
Was just curious if you had a feeling  ;D
