With the passing of holidays like EL DÍA DE LA TRADICIÓN, BON OM TOUK, and GUY FAWKES DAY, THANKSGIVING DAY celebrations are in order for this coming week. Families can gather and spend time together on this day of remembrance and giving. For Aeon, our community has come together a little more in the past two weeks. Let us review these things, shall we.

Updating CLI for Beta Testing The Next Point Release

Stoffu has been hard at work getting some pull requests ported to Aeon from Monero the past few weeks. Included in those pulls are fixes to help Aeon build on Linux and Windows, some Wallet and Daemon bugs, and also a possible fix for some difficulty drift issues found on the network. Pool Operators are suggested to pull recursively the latest pr’s from issue #77 and build the new daemon and cli. Make sure your Msys2 builder is up to date.

git clone --recursive https://github.com/aeonix/aeon.git  
git fetch origin pull/77/head:upstream-2-16112018
cd upstream-2-16112018
LINUX: make
WINDOWS make release-static-win64

Users can also build by cloning Stoffu’s repo and checking out the merge before building for the latest.

pacman -Syuuthengit clone --recursive https://github.com/stoffu/monero.git
cd monero
git checkout aeon-upstream-2
make release-static-win64

Latest as of November 18, 2018:

There was an impromptu community meeting on discord November 6th. A recap can be found on Reddit. Some of the few highlights from the meetup were the following:

  • Ideas on how to attract a full-time developer
  • Elimination of low mixins or using a fixed ring size on the next upgrade
  • What are the exact goals of the Aeon project
  • Katiecharm and her lack or presence in the community since rebase
  • Consensus for Aeon not needing a leader or Voting system
  • Agreement that there should be monthly meet-ups like this on Discord

Aeon Community Information Repositories

ThriftyMinnow and BigSlimVdub have created some repositories for Aeon usage and some how-tos. Work in progress so things will be updated as time permits for them. Feel free to add additional information to these.
