IPFS Weekly 54

by Jenn Turner on 2019-08-13

Welcome to the IPFS Weekly. 👋

The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a new hypermedia distribution protocol, addressed by content and identity. IPFS enables the creation of completely distributed applications. It aims to make the web faster, safer, and more open. Since that’s a pretty large scope, we track development across the ecosystem in this weekly dispatch.

The latest

As promised, js-ipfs 0.37.0 has been released

The latest release of js-ipfs introduces a brand new constructor, better DNSLink support and delegated routing! See the IPFS blog for the full release details.

js-libp2p adds Gossipsub support and Promisify API

The folks working on Libp2p have been busy too! Last week, they announced the release of js-libp2p version 0.26.0 which adds support for a more efficient pubsub router (Gossipsub) and Promisify for the time being. Check it out!

Hello ipfs-cohost 👋

Created by @olizilla, ipfs-cohost is a CLI to co-host websites published to IPFS. If your domain has a DNSlink to a CID, then ipfs-cohost will let others pin it to their IPFS node.
