The startup Sociall that designs decentralized social network has announced at its Medium blog page the release date of their platform closed beta testing. This announcement follows the end of the closed beta registration with nearly 300 people having signed up. Despite the end of the registration new spots will get opened for more users depending on the quality of the testing process: the next 100 users will be added judging by how the system handles the former 300 already signed up ones This situation is actually the result of an overwhelming interest in the platform. All those who have signed up will receive an email with the instruction on how to get started with the beta testing.

The beta version includes such features as user profiles, blocking/unblocking users, further instant messaging improvements, image posts, link posts, multimedia posts (video, audio — embedding only) testing and debugging. During the beta stage user profiles will be polished off, new feed designs will be added and release structure will be improved. Features like community, groups and events will be added upon the end of the beta testing.

Before the launch of the beta testing stage, third party security audits are planned to be completed and the necessary fixes be applied. The audit concerns main frontend application, authentication server, api server, image processing micro-service, sockets micro-service. According to the roadmap, the community section is planned to be added half way through the beta stage, and the next stage should be public launch set to May, 2018.

Ledger hardware wallet developers stated that an unforeseen problem was found in software version 1.5.5 for the Nano S model. Improvements in the security context have affected the amount of device memory.

When planning for this update we didn’t anticipate the impact it would have on Ledger Nano S capacity. This was not planned obsolescence, simply put, we messed up. We apologize and we’re committed to making it right.

The project team apologized for the incident and promised to fix the problem during the second quarter of 2019.

The project also announced the addition of Nano S support in the Ledger Live mobile app on Android.

Earlier, researchers at Wallet.fail discovered a number of vulnerabilities in the Trezor and Ledger hardware cryptocurrency wallets. As a result, they were able to conduct a series of successful attacks on wallets during the Chaos Communication Congress in Leipzig.
