IPFS Weekly 59
by Jenn Turner on 2019-09-17
Welcome to the IPFS Weekly. 👋
The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a new hypermedia distribution protocol, addressed by content and identity. IPFS enables the creation of completely distributed applications. It aims to make the web faster, safer, and more open. Since that’s a pretty large scope, we track development across the ecosystem in this weekly dispatch.

The early testers programme allows groups using js-ipfs in production to self-volunteer to help test js-ipfs release candidates to ensure that no regressions that might affect production systems make it into the final release. Read on for more information.
