Additionally, an update regarding ISO documentation standards is given, as well as a hint of a little surprise for our anniversary.

    Introduction


    XCITE 0.2.0 contains significant visual improvements, an interactive XBY price chart, a functional testnet debug console, basic localization, settings storage, and numerous bugfixes and other improvements. We invite you to download it and try it out for yourself, and be sure to tell us if you find a problem.

    XCITE Issues & Support


    If you are having any technical issues, start by making sure our development team has not already reported the issue. You can find a list of currently known issues here.

    However, if you do not see your issue on the list, please head to our help center and open a ticket by choosing the “XCITE Issue” category while filling in the information.

    Website


    If you have been actively following XTRABYTES, you might have picked up hints of our website rebranding. We are actively working on a new design for our website, making it look clean, smooth and professional. However, we are saving additional information as a little birthday present for the 1 year anniversary of XTRABYTES.

    Patent


    Currently, we have no new information regarding our patent. Everything is still on schedule, so hold tight!

    Documentation


    On a different note, XTRABYTES as a company is growing larger and more professional. This means we have to step up and show this to the world by living up to certain standards. Currently, this is being achieved by documenting our organizational structure conform the ISO standards (more specifically, ISO 9001 and 27001). By living up to these ISO standards, XTRABYTES aims to deliver the highest possible quality for our products, both in writing as well as functionality.

    Moreover, these documentations are being set-up for the entirety of the company’s organizational structure, providing a breakdown of how XTRABYTES is built from top-down, its aims, a certain level of basic knowledge for all employees, crisis control in case of malicious attacks, crisis prevention, and additional internal processes.

    Once these documents are completed, they will be sent for review and corrected until they live up to the certification standards.

    Closing


    XCITE has come leaps and bounds from its original release in November. From the early builds laying the foundation of our platform, to the current fine-tuning taking place across our core modules, we have seen our developers work diligently to realize the XTRABYTES vision. We are certain that when Zoltchain is implemented into the platform, users will be amazed by the versatility and fluidity of our software solutions. In short, we are incredibly excited to witness the evolution of XCITE in the coming months!

    And as always, a huge thank you for your ongoing support,

    The XTRABYTES Team
