Neo announced a partnership with StackOS that will see it provide decentralized cloud services for Neo’s upcoming hackathon, scheduled for this summer. Using StackOS, developers can write applications, bundle them as docker images, then deploy them on TestNet. StackOS states it will natively integrate with NeoFS as a decentralized file storage network. Further, StackOS states its native STACK token will be interoperable on the Neo blockchain.

A revised C# smart contract compiler is also a notable new addition, bringing support for more language features, deterministic compilation, and outputting more readable, optimized code.
The current RC2 version is planned for deployment to the N3 TestNet on May 18.
