And despite all this activity, we also can’t stop shipping that sweet sweet code.

It’s now a year since the first Agent Framework hit the streets, making this one the Birthday release. So raise a glass for Autonomous Economic Agents and grab a slice of cake. Now, over to the Agent Framework itself for a brief speech:There’s so much in this v0.6 release, we’ve come a long way, and we’re now warming up for version 1.0 over the coming few months. In this release, we’ve got:
* Massively simplified dialogue handling. This reduces the amount of code needed when creating skills by a good 20%: you write less, and achieve more.
* Support for the new fetch1 address format for Agentland, as supported by SOEF version 0.1.26 and above.
* The usual bug fixes and tweaks as per reports from developers, and a load of code-refactoring making things easier to read and understand whilst preparing for v1 feature-set.
* Internal message handling is now fully consistent across the framework which simplifies the development of skills and connections
* Lots of work in making Agentland development easier: FetchAICrypto works correctly, and is now the default again.
* Lots of work on P2P to improve error reporting and more.
* Lots of updates to the documentation, including a decent chunk on contract usage. And a big one… because, well, it is my birthday:*
Agent Registry Front End
. We have build a front-end for the Agent Registry. You can access this here: https://aea-registry.fetch.ai/
. It allows you to find, download and publish AEA packages including entire agents, skills, connections, protocols and contracts. This is a super-cool addition to the Agent Framework and it’s just part 1 of how we intend on making it easier and easier to build agents quickly that do what you want.
As usual, if you have any questions, or would like support and assistance getting going, please talk to us at the developer Slack.
Have a great weekend everybody!
