Published on January 8, 2022 by Yi Wang

The year 2021 has come and gone, and Local Native project has made solid progress in the past year:

  • The biggest achievement is the release of our cross-platform desktop based on the iced framework. 

  • We also updated the localnative_core dependency.

  • We have also released an iced GUI tutorial based on this codebase.

  • We learned early PR commits were not well conformed, which caused some difficulties in organizing them when writing the summary.
