Development Roadmap

The purpose of the development roadmap is to provide an indication of the SAFE Network’s release history, rollout strategy, as well as our near term development focus.

Past milestones:

Test 1: 

Feb 26th 2016

Client test. The release of the SAFE Launcher and the SAFE Demo App enabling users to create their own account, and to store/retrieve private data.

Test 3: 

May 17th 2016

The first iteration of enabling users run vaults.

Alpha 1: 

Aug 12th 2016

Release of the alpha network and API version 0.5.

Test 9: 

Sep 16th 2016

Enable users to send and receive SAFE Email. This new functionality also serves as the first developer tutorial.

Upcoming Releases:


In Progress

The core network and fundamental functionality is provided via an initial implementation. This is the first public testing phase.

Future roadmap

Our current development focus within the network is to enable user run Vaults and to combine the current data centre hosted alpha network and Test 10.

The high level tasks to enable this objective are to complete the implementation of disjoint groups and to complete the design and implementation of the node aging RFC. Following the completion of this primary objective, we will then focus on the implementation of data chains, which it is anticipated will provide data republish capability.

Within the SAFE Client, we will continue to release developer focussed tutorials as new functionality is released via the Launcher APIs.


Alpha implementations are reiterated and improved, based on user feedback.

Release candidate:

The fundamental feature set is stabilised to provide greater security, resilience and efficiency.


Privacy, security, freedom!
