Syncfusion release Essential Studio 2019 Volume 2, which introduces Blazor controls that include template rendering, canvas chart rendering and support for file system service providers. 

“Our Blazor framework includes more than 60 components that can be used to author powerful line-of-business solutions,” said Daniel Jebaraj, Syncfusion’s vice president. “Blazor is exciting because it allows developers to write client-side web apps in C# rather than JavaScript, giving them an option to code in their preferred language.”

Besu, a Java-based Ethereum client, joins the Hyperledger Foundation
The Hyperledger Foundation has added Besu, a Java-based open source Ethereum client formerly known as Pantheon, as its latest project. 

“By creating clean interfaces between elements within the client (e.g., networking, storage, EVM, etc.), we believe enterprises will have a much easier time configuring Ethereum to meet their needs while also creating opportunities for other Hyperledger projects to integrate and use elements of Besu’s codebase,” Hyperledger wrote in a post. 

Hyperledger Besu’s features include The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) for the deployment and execution of smart contracts, consensus algorithms that are involved in transaction validation, block validation and block production, as well as storage, P2P networking and user-facing APIs.
