Facebook’s Libra developers have released a new roadmap outlining steps toward its mainnet launch.
The revelation from the Libra Foundation published on October 2nd 2019 highlights various points of interest for both developers and those who operate the protocol’s nodes.
Libra which is currently running a testnet, aims to settle technical challenges prior to a mainnet launch. The roadmap reads:
“Launching the Testnet has allowed the team to quickly improve Libra Core by making it easy to troubleshoot, diagnose, and resolve software edge cases. The Testnet demonstrates Libra network functionality and provides early access to developers. Following the Testnet, we hope to have a successful launch of the Libra Mainnet.”
Libra developers also created a staging environment named “Pre-Mainnet”. It is currently accessible to partner nodes only. This is to allow them to connect to each other. Many partners “have already deployed their nodes and have them communicating,”. According to the roadmap:
“We expect to have more partners coming online shortly. We want to ensure the Libra network can meet rigorous performance benchmarks and overall system stability before opening access.”
Libra continues to face various issues following its initial announcement some months back.
