  • #176: Reactive HTTP requests
  • #181: Reboot on new RubyGems release
  • #140: HTTPS for the entire RESTful API
  • #280: Pro-active pulling of wallets
  • Release Java client API
  • #96: NScore for PULL
  • #74: Make local changes visible before PUSH
  • #43: Score graph
  • MongoDB backend
  • AWS DynamoDB backend
  • AWS S3 backend
  • Incremental HTTP protocol, to avoid traffic duplication
  • Mobile wallet (iOS and Android)
  • Mobile node

#412: Scores are being calculated in a separate process, which makes HTTP front-end a few times faster (but still pretty slow).

22 Jul
#399: PUSH, PULL, and UPDATE are multi-threaded now, which makes them much faster than before.

14 Jul
#402: Critical bugs with nodes connectivity were fixed, the network is stable (over 70 nodes).
