This release mainly aims to solve a commonly encountered problem among Windows users when using non en-us locale. If you were one of the people affected by this problem, please give this version a try and let us know if things work as they should!

In the background you should also start feeling some optimizations on the bandwidth side as the IPFS team has started to put more effort into this area recently. On the blockchain side we have started playing with the light client protocol and we're super happy with the results so far!

🤗 Big kudos to Jeffrey Wilcke, Felföldi Zsolt and the team for the great work done on the light client! 🤗

Thanks to their hard work soon there will be --light!

Feedback & Issues

In case the dapp crashes or becomes unresponsive, Cmd/Ctrl+R is your friend.

Akashic Proverb

The Mac OS version is slightly less tested than the Linux and Windows versions so it might be more prone to errors than the other releases. That being said, all versions need more testing and could showcase bugs and errors.

The best thing to do in case you stumble upon a bug is to open a GitHub issue, attaching a screenshot and a copy of the logs describing the error. Moreover, a description of the steps required to reproduce the error would be fantastic!

On the other hand, if you have an idea that you’d like to share with us don’t be shy - we have a Slack channel for brainstorming ideas and we’d love to hear from you! 

A Special Note On AETH (AKASHA ETH)

AETH is our test token on the private chain used for this pre-release. As a test token it does not have any value outside the purpose of testing AKASHA. At this point, you can obtain AETH tokens by creating an identity on AKASHA.


A list of FAQs is being built on this Wiki - make sure you check it in case you stumble upon a problem.

Please note that if you have installed a previous AKASHA version (0.1.0 - 0.5.0 included) it is recommended to uninstall it before installing the 0.5.2 release.
