Distributed ledger start-up R3 has announced that its signature Corda platform entered a Beta phase.
As Richard Gendal Brown, the startup’s architect and CTO, said, Corda has made a notable milestone following its launch in November 2016.
“In this post, I announce our first public beta of Corda – and share some thoughts on an exciting announcement from our newest partner, HP Enterprise. Bottom line: if you haven’t already started building on Corda, now is the time to start.”, as he said in a blog post available at gendal.me.
Also, he made clear that the latest version of the software boasts with new API documentation and an expanded codebase.
Corda is a distributed ledger platform that provides APIs and codes for companies to build up blockchain-like applications.
At the end of May, R3 has closed a record funding round that raised more than $100, as announced at CoinDesk`s Consensus 2017 conference.
Brown has also commented that the development team of Corda has been working with members privately to prove Corda. They are to release the results to the public in the month to come.
However, he added that it may take some time before a version 1.0 of the software is available to the general public, as the team works on a solution that allows them to commit to future API compatibility.
“You will be able to take apps you deploy on 1.0 and migrate them to run on future versions of Corda unchanged … The team doesn’t get to say Corda is at 1.0 until it hits that bar.”, as Brown said as quoted by coindesk.com.
