Hyperledger Fabric 1.0 goes live
Blockchain developer Hyperledger has achieved a “huge milestone” with the launch of Hyperledger Fabric 1.0, according to IBM chief technology officer of open technology Chris Ferris.

Hyperledger is an open source industry collaborative initiative hosted by The Linux Foundation that is aimed at developing cross-industry blockchain technologies.

Ferris, who is also chair of Hyperledger technical steering committee, said: “It is amazing to see what this highly collaborative community with more than 145 members has achieved in a little over a year.”

The Hyperledger is supported by 159 developers including the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, State Street, Digital Asset, and Cloudsoft.

Hyperledger Fabric was the first of the eight Hyperledger projects to be incubated and was also the first of the Hyperledger projects to achieve ‘active’ status in March, after a year in incubation.

In reference to the 1.0 status of the Hyperledger Fabric launch, Ferris said: “No open source project is ever ‘done’, and the same can be said for Hyperledger Fabric.”

He continued: “We also have more work to do on performance and of course we have plans to add more comprehensive performance, scale and chaotic testing to our continuous integration pipeline to continue to add to the robustness of the platform.”

“However, the project’s maintainers felt that the time was ripe to deliver a robust initial major release with the objective of allowing consumers and vendors of technology based on Hyperledger Fabric to advance to the next stage: production deployment and operations.”
