A new version of Hornet software, which utilizes IOTA's decentralized data structure, will be released next week. IOTA's team shared some details of the future update.
Four UX Upgrades
According to the official statement, Hornet v0.4.0 will bring significant improvements to system performance and user experience (UX).
As of now, the development team is running final tests of Hornet operations. Not only will Hornet v0.4.0 be easier to install, run, and manage than its predecessor, but that its performance will also be more powerful.
Developers leaked four major improvements of their product's UX. Its Advanced Package Tool interface will consist of only one line. Node health data will be broadcasted via a brand-new application programming interface (API).
The most exciting and impressive visual solution is new visualizer of Tangle nodes.
Finally, the speed of the node setup will be bootstrapped by implementing an auto-peering option.
The new release is largely welcomed by IOTA's Founder David Sonstebo. He highlighted that the Hornet team is close to achieving a crucial milestone alongside the progress with the IOTA Foundation:
It's a major privilege to have such a competent and enthusiastic team working alongside the IOTA Foundation. You guys deserve all the praise you get!
Major technical updates were mentioned by Mr. Sonstebo in his recent exclusive interview with U.Today. He outlined that in 2020, these upgrades will put IOTA 'on a completely separate echelon in the sense that we will deliver on all the promises and all the theory that we've been working on since 2014'.
IOTA's founder also emphasized the importance of these upgrades for the mass adoption of IOTA-powered products.
