Launching Sol.Net v0.1
As the Solana Season Hackathon comes to an end, the time has come for us to also release Sol.Net v0.1 as we have met our milestone for the Hackathon.
Since we introduced Sol.Net to the community just over a week ago, we’ve been focused on meeting the deadline we had in order to release our v0.1 during the Hackathon. What does this mean exactly?
This means that, using Sol.Net v0.1 you are already able to do some of the following:
- Generating keys and wallets, compatible with both sollet and solana-keygen
- Safely store and restore keys, compatible with keys generated using solana-keygen and with Web3 Secret Storage
- Interact with Solana nodes using any of methods available in Solana-Core v1.7+
- Transfer $SOL between accounts
- Transfer SPL Tokens to new Token Accounts
- Mint SPL Tokens
As no good deed goes unpunished, our last 48 hours were bittersweet. After trying to deploy our first release to NuGet, we found that the ID (Solnet.*) we wanted to use in our package was already reserved. This means that for now we are only releasing v0.1 in GitHub. In the next week we will evaluate our options regarding the final name we will use.
Going forward, we have already defined some goals for the next big release:
- Polish the current v0.1 (there are still some internal inconsistencies, and no commitment parameter is yet being used in any method or subscription)
- Add more programs and finish implementing the current available ones.
- Improve the programs API and how they interact with the RPC API.
- Implement the Serum API.
- Create more usage examples.
We are very thankful for all the support we have received so far. And yet again, we ask for more feedback. Do you work with .NET and want to see a specific feature? Or even contribute? Do you have experience creating these kinds of client libraries and want to share any secret knowledge? Get in touch with us:
