Having delivered the milestone Neo 3.1 version in the final weeks of 2021, the core development team began the New Year at a more relaxed pace. The planning of new updates and roadmap items took precedence, though several smaller improvements were still successfully completed in January.
The relatively low number of commits from the Neo core meant that community teams would take the spotlight this month. Neo’s globally distributed development communities made considerable progress in further refining available Neo infrastructure and tooling across all supported languages.
AxLabs and COZ provided new solutions and resources for developers, especially for those who are working on smart contracts. In particular, new helper methods and similar conveniences across neow3j and Boa would expose new areas of the Neo N3 platform to projects working on their own dApps.
Neo’s alternate node implementation, NeoGo, received a large mix of improvements from Neo SPCC, the team responsible for its maintenance. Of particular note, upgrades to the consensus and storage subsystems would further accelerate the already highly performant node.
