David Burkett the lead developer on the Litecoin MimbleWimble proposal has simply printed his december replace documenting the work performed during the last month and increasing on his preliminary progress report in Novemeber.
“After months of planning, improvement of the mimblewimble extension block has formally began! My efforts this month targeted principally round restructuring the core logic that will likely be shared between Grin++ and LTC. This includes the entire logging, serialization, crypto, error dealing with, and customary information constructions (headers/blocks/txs).”
“Most of this was already written for Grin++, however since some elements had been hurriedly coded on a decent time schedule, I’m utilizing this chance to go over each line with a fine-tooth comb. As a part of this, I’m standardizing patterns that had been initially adopted inconsistently, backfilling lacking checks, and including higher documentation.”
Burkett moreover goes onto write and structure his priorities going ahead and into January. These embrace, selecting a construct methodology for the venture, probably a ‘simplified model libbitcoin’s construct system’ in addition to defining fashions, fields and serialisation formatting of headers, kernels and signatures. Additionally on the todo listing for January is to maneuver ‘database implementations over to libmw-core, cleanup to match new requirements, and add full checks’. Moreover work will begin on a mechanism that may permit for quicker syncing of the Grin chain, one thing that may lay the bottom work for Litecoin Core’s proposal.
