Aragon Q2 Development Update

We will be delivering regular updates on the development of Aragon. This is our first quarterly update to bring the community up to speed on where we’re at and the road ahead.

As outlined in our Community Governance Model, we’ll also have bi-weekly Dev Meetings. These meetings will consist of the Aragon Dev team. We’ll be discussing the current technical developments, what has got done and what needs to get done for the next release. The meetings will be streamed live on our Youtube channel and the recording made available for later viewing.

The first regular Dev Meeting will take place on Friday 7th of July at 14.00/2pm CEST.

These new changes implementing third party core modules (v0.5) and upgradeability (v0.6) are orders of magnitude easier to pull off.
