## Context I have been involved (voluntarily) with the development of the Condenser & Wallet apps (that are powering https://hive.blog and https://wallet.hive.blog) for quite a while now. There are other great frontends to Hive out there such as https://peakd.com and https://ecency.com but I have always been more or less faithful with the Condenser. This is a regular report on my new contributions. Some of the new work below might still be in test and not yet deployed. **Notes:** some features or bug fixes might not yet be available as they need to pass review and test by the team. --- ## Revert negative rshares post hiding logic To prevent abuses, it was decided to revert the changes to auto-hide posts/comments with negative rshares. MR: https://gitlab.syncad.com/hive/condenser/-/merge_requests/331 ## External links click confirmation To prevent phishing links, while not hiding negative rshares posts, an external link confirmation has been implemented for links to domain names that are not whitelisted. ![External link confirmation popup](https://images.hive.blog/DQmRzk6tkau5Aq8nT272SaW2BwjdwhvUEs9j2SpunPMoAZL/Screen%20Shot%202022-07-08%20at%202.24.55%20pm.jpg) ## Upgrade to React v18 in test phase After several months working on upgrading the Condenser from React v16 to React v18, the app is now in testing phase.
