Iota: Qubic status update February 3rd 2019
Thanks to Lukas and a lot of community feedback there is a pretty stable code base now, and the number of Ict nodes has grown to over 400.
FPGA On the FPGA/ASIC implementation of the Qubic Computation Model, Donald and Eric worked together to have the Qupla interpreter finally emit Verilog source code that can be compiled by the Verilog tools without any manual changes, which is a milestone that removes a lot of manual labor after each new iteration of code generation.
The Qupla interpreter continued to grow as well.
First, the code base was reorganized to better group functionality and make it more understandable.
The interpreter will now automatically determine which functions from which templates need to be instantiated, which results in cleaner code and removes a headache for the Qupla programmer.
This allows for end-to-end debugging of your code before it is deployed to the Tangle.
To demonstrate the new functionality and give a preview of how the QCM allows for very flexible combining of functionalities we created a Proof of Concept implementation of Conway’s Game of Life in Qupla.
Not only did we receive several bug reports and some really good suggestions for improvements, but there were also several people who started playing with Qupla and implemented some functions that could be added to the libraries and examples.
These implementations in turn triggered several ideas on how to improve the Qupla language and library code.
