Common Changelog will be hosted in Common Protocol. Each week will be an individual thread that is updated daily with shipped fixes and improvements. Stay in the loop as we bring your feedback to life by building, iterating, and squashing bugs!

What’s Next

We are continuing to modernize Commonwealth’s site functionality by using industry standards and best-in-class tools. Thus far, our migration to a reactive frontend has allowed us to push forward recent improvements including major bug fixes, cleaner pages, 25% faster loading for cosmos discussion pages, and improved caching for blockchain data (faster proposal loading).

As we continue to improve Commonwealth, our current product focuses include:

  • Frontend caching, optimistic rendering, reactive stores & patterns
  • Better library/code splitting, image compression, optimizing data architecture
  • Expect better responsiveness, and an overall better experience as we continue to improve our patterns
  • Improved test coverage for fewer bugs
  • Wallet & login flow revamp

We're excited to embark on this new chapter with you, as we continue to innovate, evolve, and shape the Commonwealth product. Thank you for being part of our journey!
