We are releasing today the version 0.4.0 of the RED Wallet with several major new features. As a reminder, the RED Wallet aims to be a simple and very secure wallet for the major cryptocurrencies (BTC, ETH, and ERC-20 tokens). Safety is enforced through the mandatory use of a hardware key (Ledger or Trezor keys), which protects against any failure of the wallet app (being it a bug or an attacker).

As part of the R&D work on port! datatype in port-type branch, we have implemented a GPIO driver for Raspberry Pi boards, as a gpio:// scheme (no third-party library needed). This work helped define the low-level API for ports written in purely Red/System or a mix of Red and Red/System. The Raspberry Pi is a very popular board with millions of units sold, so this is a market where Red could be potentially helpful to developers.

Stepping-up 2019 started with continued advances in the main development branch, implementation of features, and triage of pending tickets. For example, smart merging of a style's actors with the actors of a particular face instance was introduced in the VID dialect. Example: view [ style my-button: base on-down [face/color: face/color / 2 do-actor face event 'click] on-up [face/color: face/color * 2] my-button "Say hi!" red on-click [print "hi"] ] But this is just a tiny drop in the January ocean, and nothing special in the grand scheme of things.

It’s been a long time coming. While work on Red has progressed every day, work on the blockchain aspects of the project, and their associated logistics, came at a time when that workload temporarily prevented us from making new, formal/stable releases. There was a key feature that needed to be in place, and it wasn’t a small one. Thanks for bearing with us! Fixes and features kept rolling out on a regular basis, so most active community members were not affected by the lack of a fresh new “official” release.
