November saw the completion of some major Neo3 features, as the core development team inched ever forward towards Preview4 and progression to Neo3 TestNet. All governance and economics PRs were merged, following extensive testing in the month prior, which resulted in several fixes and optimizations. Significant progress was also made towards finalizing the Oracle implementation and changes associated with state-related logic.
Another noteworthy development was the introduction of NEP-17 – A new token standard for Neo3. NEP-17 inherits most of the same methods from NEP-5 with several new improvements, such as the onPayment method, which enables contracts to react to a transfer and automatically handle or reject it.
Meanwhile, Neo’s community development groups followed the progress of Neo3 closely. Neo SPCC’s NeoGo, COZ’s Mamba, NeoTracker’s NEO-ONE, and AxLabs’ neow3j are just a few projects keeping up with Neo3 and implementing support as new features are finalized.
NGD Enterprise’s Blockchain Toolkit for VS Code also received several enhancements to support the Neo3 preview releases, including private network Oracle support for Neo Express and improved invoke/view flows for the Visual DevTracker.
For regular users, explorers Dora and NeoTube underwent further preparations to provide an easy Neo3 browsing experience, and work continued readying the NeoLine and Neon wallets for the new network.
With the help of Neo’s communities, developers and users alike can hope to have a first-class experience upon the launch of Neo3.
Neo3 Preview4 is currently planned to be the final preview release before TestNet. As we move into the final month of the year, both the Neo core development team and Neo’s network of global communities are working daily to achieve this goal.
