Shimmer Continues to Make Progress on L1
In addition to the above updates, Shimmer also shared details about its progress on L1, the first layer of its blockchain technology. The platform reported that a PR (pull request) is being built on top of two unmerged ledger-PRs. The PR uses the previous implementation and connects all open ends to create a working protocol.

Additionally, the Shimmer team is working to make the test suite less error-prone. They also recently merged a new PR that aims to “Fix rootblock and eviction index.”
Furthermore, Shimmer reported that there are still some code changes happening outside of the usual PR progress. However, these changes are getting less frequent, indicating that the node is getting into a state where actual software change management is useful. Shimmer is continuing to make progress on L1 and is committed to building a more robust and efficient blockchain ecosystem.
