New Frontend Release Process
Last week we released a front-end update with several key new features, in addition to these features we made changes to our front-end release process. We are now on a (roughly) biweekly release schedule — every second Thursday a new release of the Synthetix dApps will be deployed: Mintr, Synthetix.exchange, Synthetix Dashboard and Delegatr. During each release we will also push hotfixes and roll up into a release changelog at the time of the deployment to help users track changes to each dApp.
To help communicate the changes in each release we are adopting a similar process to the core engineering team, which names each release after stars ordered by apparent magnitude. We will name the front-end releases after minerals ordered by the Mohs hardness scale, softest to hardest. The release last week was named Graphite and the upcoming release on the 23rd of April will be called Bauxite.
The Graphite release was the sister release of Hadar and contained a number of updates to align with the changes released in Hadar. In addition to these changes several other improvements were released. The detailed changelog can be found here, but the high level overview is as follows:
- Trading view redesign 🔥
- Delegation dApp (delegatr) launched 🔥
- New crypto Synths added
- New Equity Synths added
- Market closure/pause handling
- Fixes for transferable SNX logic
A preview of Bauxite (subject to change) is below:
- Mintr code refactor, including transaction page fixes
- Claims page refactor for 1 week claims
- Delegatr v1.1
- sBZ launch (brent crude)
- System pause and market pause handling
- Defisnap debt tracker integration
- Major dashboard refactor including migration to the graph
