# Just released: IPFS Cluster 0.14.0!
We're happy to announce the release of IPFS Cluster 0.14.0 (opens new window)! IPFS Cluster provides an overlay layer to control and orchestrate pinsets in multiple IPFS daemons. It adds content, distributes pins, tracks them, and ensures content is replicated while providing streamlined API(s) for IPFS storage management. From feedback received, the release of IPFS Cluster 0.14.0 (opens new window) has added CAR import support, batched-pin ingestion, and automatic garbage collection to the Badger datastore, along with other optimizations, updates, and bug fixes.
# Browsers 3000 kicks off its 6 week event, including a presentation from ENS

# Want to help build the new internet?
Senior Software Engineer (opens new window): Distributed systems engineering lies at the center of many projects at Protocol Labs. With IPFS, libp2p, Filecoin, and other related projects, we are laying the foundation for a more resilient, more secure, distributed version of the web. This requires rigorous engineering from protocol design through all the phases of implementation. We strike a balance between pragmatism (put it on a ship ⛴), deeply informed protocol design, and strict application of strong engineering principles. All of this happens in an environment defined by curiosity, passion, and a love for open source. Protocol Labs, Remote.
Fullstack Engineer (opens new window): Textile's web products and services are written primarily in Golang and TypeScript, and communicate with Textile's core gRPC services. You will own the end user experience and have full ownership over the product stack, from research and development to implementation and production monitoring. Textile, Remote.
Backend/API Engineer (opens new window): As a Backend/API Engineer, you will research, contribute to the product vision and help define the roadmap of multiple products. You will build and maintain features on the Textile Hub (opens new window), and build new services and systems to integrate with blockchain networks including Threads (opens new window), Buckets (opens new window), Hub (opens new window), and Powergate (opens new window). This role is for someone with solid coding experience and the ability to lead new features. Textile, Remote.
Product Manager, Developer Experience (opens new window): As a Product Manager on the Developer Experience team at 3Box Labs, you'll be in charge of delivering a best-in-class experience for developers building on the Ceramic platform. 3Box Labs created the leading identity and data solution for Web3, and alongside the open source developer community.
