Babylon Proposal Injected!
This update is joint work with Cryptium Labs, with contributions from the Marigold team, and it is much more significant than Athens in terms of features.
Its main changes to Tezos are:
  • a new variant of our consensus algorithm, Emmy+, that is both more robust and simpler to analyse,
  • many new Michelson features which have been eagerly awaited by Tezos smart contract developers and designers of higher level languages,
  • an account rehaul that establishes a clear distinction between accounts (tz1, tz2 and tz3) and smart contracts (KT1),
  • refinements to the quorum formula and a new 5% proposal quorum.

Babylon is a big step up from Athens, which just changed some constants. And it's the work of 3 teams: @LabosNomades , @CryptiumLabs , and Marigold (team also behind @LigoLang)

What's in it?

Grantee Update: SmartPy.io
The SmartPy team publishes a technical post about basic computations. SmartPy is a Python library, accessible in an online editor SmartPy.io, that comes together with its SmartML backend. It enables developers to define and analyse smart contracts. These smart contracts are compiled into Michelson, the Tezos virtual machine.
