Neo started the new year strong with the release of Preview5, a milestone achievement. As the most evolved form of Neo to date, Preview5 introduces a further simplified architecture via the new LedgerContract, and enables oracle usage for the first time through the Oracle service module.
This release contains the majority of the new functionality planned for Neo3’s final revision and will be a close match to the formal TestNet version, scheduled to launch in March. One of the last remaining major tasks, integration with NeoFS, has been a key point of development through January.
Slowly but surely the grand vision for Neo is becoming reality. Thanks to the efforts of both core and community developers alike, Neo is on track to onboard the next generation of blockchain developers and cement itself as the most user- and developer-friendly blockchain platform.
