Roadmap

Completed Projects

~2022.6

Completed

Kahn

date

2022-06-01

contributors

~silsyn-wathep

Kahn is a "control plane" vane, allowing external processes to talk with a ship through a Unix socket.

Completed

Clay Tombstoning

date

2022-06-01

contributors

~wicdev-wisryt

Because Clay, the filesystem vane, is version-controlled, it was previously not possible to delete old revisions of files. Tombstoning was introduced to retain the reference while removing the data.

Completed

Vere Upgrades

date

2022-06-01

Adds features to simplify upgrading the binary for users.

~2022.3

Completed

Commit Messages

Layer 2

Due to gas prices on the Ethereum blockchain, a layer 2 solution was developed to rollup transactions on the Urbit network.

~2021.9

Completed

Software Distribution

A number of features written to support third-party application distribution on independent desks.

~2021.5

Completed

Bitcoin Wallet

The Bitcoin app is a non-custodial Bitcoin wallet which allows Urbit users to send each other Bitcoin using their planet names.

~2021.2

Completed

HTTP API

~radbur-sivmus

The HTTP API is an NPM package that bundles interfaces for talking to an Urbit ship from a web browser.

Completed

King Haskell

date

2021-01-29

A re-implementation of the Urbit runtime in Haskell.

~2020.12

Completed

The Last Network Breach

date

2020-12-08

Changes to the network protocol previously necessitated a complete reset (historically called a "breach") of the entire network state, requiring all users to take action to get onto the new network. By introducing version negotiation between Arvo and Vere, future changes can be made entirely over-the-air.

~2020.11

Completed

Hark Store

date

2020-11-10

contributors

~hastuc-dibtux

Hark is the notification system for Landscape, allowing apps to create and group notifications together in app-defined categories.

~2020.8

Completed

Stateless Forwarding

date

2020-08-06

contributors

~palfun-foslup

Stateless packet forwarding allows ships to relay packets to other ships without writing to their own event log.

~2020.7

Completed

IPC Redux

A significant rewrite to the runtime IPC protocol.

Completed

Graph Store

date

2020-07-30

contributors

~tacryt-socryp

Graph Store is a non-relational database suitable for use in building social media applications.

~2020.6

Completed

Ford Fusion

date

2020-06-29

Merged the old build system vane, Ford, into Clay, the filesystem vane, so that Clay handles the build process, ensuring atomic, self-contained, and ordered updates.

Azimuth

In Urbit's early stages, when it was still highly experimental, the address space was managed and issued manually by Tlon. In 2017, it was decided that Urbit's address space would be moved to a smart contract on Ethereum. In early 2019, Urbit's PKI system was launched on the Ethereum blockchain.
