Update: The Road to Multi-Collateral Dai—Kovan Release v0.2.6 - The Maker Blog


A month ago today (April 24), we announced the release of MCD v0.2.4 on the Kovan testnet.

That release, which included updates to the MCD CDP Portal, Dai.js, and New Contract Addresses, was met with great response from the community. Thank you to everyone who tested v0.2.4 and provided feedback. As we progress, the Maker Foundation’s goal is to be as transparent as possible with the community, and consistently clarify the scope of releases.

Today, we share the details of the most recent update, MCD v0.2.6, deployed on the Kovan testnet. The release covers the newest development updates within the following areas:

Prior to this release, we had a small v0.2.5 release that covered updates to the CDP Portal, Governance Dashboard, and the Testchain DSS deployment scripts. A changelog summary of the v0.2.5 release is below.
