The maintainers of Hyperledger Fabric, a platform for distributed ledgers supported by a modular architecture that delivers high degrees of flexibility, confidentiality, resiliency and scalability, have published their first release candidate for testing, according to the project’s blog.
he first release candidate is v1.0.0-rc1, according to Christopher Ferris of IBM and Jonathan Levi of Hacera, release managers for Hyperledger Fabric 1.0.
Hyperledger Fabric is the first of five incubator projects to graduate from Hyperledger, an umbrella for software developer communities creating open source blockchain and related technologies supported by the Linux Foundation.
Hyperledger Fabric is designed to support pluggable deployments of different components, and to accommodate the intricacies existing across the economic ecosystem. Capabilities include identity management, privacy and confidentiality, efficient processing, chain code functionality and modular design. IBM provided the codebase for the project.
