The team of the Hyperledger Fabric blockchain project have published a software release candidate.

The developers announced their first release candidate v1.0.0-rc1 on June 26. Their statement available on list.hyperledger.org pointed out:

“‘This isn’t the end of the road, but we are certainly getting close… the code has been frozen since we released the v1.0.0-beta release excepting any defect fixes, new and enhanced tests and documentation enhancements. “‘

“‘We encourage everyone to test and provide feedback to that we can deliver a robust and secure 1.0.0. We’ll be running some security scans and audits, on this latest release and addressing any issues that need remediation. We officially tagged the 1.0.0-rc1 release on Friday June 23.”, as they elaborated.

Jonathan Levi, founder of blockchain start-up HACERA and a release manager of the project, framed the announcement as a call to action to those interested in leveraging the software.

Speaking to coindesk.com, Levi said:

“If you are heavily invested in proofs-of-concept, this is the right time to make sure that Fabric does what you need.”

Hyperledger Fabric is also reportedly moving forward from a beta release. As announced in June, APIs and project code was frozen in an attempt to test the stability and usability of the software.

The goal is that this release candidate is thoroughly assessed by start-ups, enterprises and other potential users, as Levi emphasized. In this way, they can give feedback on the software development before its  official launch.
