Project Health

Caliper developement has been scilent for some time in the past quarter. For 2 major developers has moved on from their work with Caliper. So we had some pending PRs and unanswered questions.

In last two weeks, Caliper team took multiple means to improve project health. Including reviewing and merging PRs, introducing new contributors and maintainers, have online meetings and making new plans. Now we've closed most pending PRs, the project is recovering and is becoming active again.

Overall Activity in the Past Quarter

Our main work focus on code improvement such as added event subscription ,event listener and supporting long time running. Thanks every contributor's efforts. Below are some main updates in the past 3 months:

  • Improve caliper to support long time testing
