Factom Technical Update: Binaries v0.3.7

Tech Update Binaries V0 3 7

We are thrilled to release new Factom binaries and installers. They are now available on GitHub for Windows, Mac and Linux. Version 0.3.7.0 is an update touching primarily network improvements.

“Factomd was having trouble with the Great Firewall of China (GFW). We were finally able to track down what was causing factomd to fall behind from synchronization. Version 0.3.7.0 no longer falls behind when the GFW resets connections.” – Brian Deery, Chief Scientist

“Version 0.3.7.0 contains a number of infrastructure improvements which will expedite future continuous integration and database management functions.” – D. Robert Baker, Process Integration Manager

To get started, follow our guides for step by step instructions on how to install and use our software.

Milestone #2 is just around the corner. The next evolution of Factom moves us from one federated server to eight. The servers will build blocks collaboratively and rely on individual messages. Milestone #2 will also result in quicker confirmations when submitting data to be factomized, as well as faster Factoid confirmations.

We would like to take a moment to discuss the problems with blockchain, which might seem odd as we are a blockchain company. In truth, it was the problems we saw in the early stages of blockchain technology that led us to create the Factom Network.
