Hyperledger Fabric 1.4 marks a very important milestone
Hyperledger Fabric is becoming one of the most important frameworks for blockchain development. Just a few months ago, it was announced that this Hyperledger project will support Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) bytecode smart contracts. Therefore, Hyperledger Fabric is now more accessible to developers who have already started working with Ethereum and its associated tools.
The latest release of Hyperledger Fabric, v1.4 marks a very important milestone: it is the first LTS release. This means that the Fabric maintainers will provide bug fixes for a period of one year [from the date of release: January 10, 2019]. Take a closer look here.
