There was a release for devnet last week where there were a lot of changes:
Take a look at on-chain governance and let them know what you think.
Migration to utf8
state_sync changed a bit
A command for the local testnet is now available
There will also be strategies for future improvements
New devnet release this week
They’re working on memory issues
More geographical distribution compared to AIT1
Figured out how latency affects your participation.
They will be looking at all week’s data and want to reward people who actually
spent their time working with their nodes, so don’t worry if your leaderboard scores are not high enough
There were 4 updates, a config update. The network was working well during that time.
People were seeing a lot of traffic, which ultimately helped the team improve the network.
Later this week there will be a survey for AIT2
Tell them more about your servers and they might help save more money in the future
Parallel transactions even for the same field.
“Temporary” tokens. Owning a token for a certain amount of time, after which another person can get their hands on it. Haven’t explored this much yet.
Windows support is quite possible in the future
Examples of smart contracts can be found on Github
Team is working on two types:
Modules to help you work with your own little pieces of code.
Another module for more comprehensive language communication and testing
There is a tutorial about NFT. They are working on standards.

Aptos has nodes in different regions, they have an understanding of what and how works even in rare locations.
There will be options for how much history you want to store. Options for people who want to run nodes both on relatively weak hardware and on more expensive hardware.
It is difficult to test nodes on servers with older architecture, but they try to support newer generations.
The forum is a great place to discuss long-term discussions
They are still busy with devnet and testnet, so no announcements about mainnet yet.
Work on an educational platform in progress.
There are many ways for the community to get involved and more to come. Stay tuned or get in touch with James.
When Tokenomics? Soon.
When ICO? If there is any there will be an announcement in the official channels, no presales in DM. It’s a scam.
Aptos is hiring Careers at Aptos
