Logan Hitchcock

Decentraland announced the launch of the public SDK 7 Beta, with a focus on usability, performance, and portability. 

The Deets

Decentraland's SDK 7 Beta provides the following enhancements:

  • A new UI based on FlexBox.
  • Improved interoperability with external JavaScript libraries. 
  • Improved performance. 
  • Support of multiple button events, and more. 

❗Why It Matters

Improving the complexity and customization of metaverse scenes will be necessary to bring even more users in. Decentraland is relying on its latest improvements to make the editing and creating experience more powerful, and easier for its users who ultimately can bring in additional users through the creation of powerful mini-games or scenes (similar to Minecraft or Roblox).

🎤 Platform Prose

In addition to improving the scene development process, SDK 7 should also make it easier to create any variety of alternative projects upon the Decentraland ecosystem, have a positive impact on performance, and pave the way for more robust and streamlined multiplayer functionality - to name just a few of its benefits!Decentraland

Get Ready for a Taco Wedding, You're Invited!

Are you ready for the wedding? Tomorrow in Decentraland, there is a real wedding taking place inside the Taco Bell venue, according to a tweet from Decentraland.

The wedding likely has no impact on Decentraland prices or the metaverse's future, but it's refreshing to find a web3 story that isn't focused on frenzied speculation. Plus, Taco Bell - a company that has been active in web3 - is sponsoring the event, coordinating an official calendar entry on the Decentraland events page.
