- The latest API release includes cache control and websocket support for three NFT related topics. Cache control improves caching behavior regardless of whether the transaction is moved from block to microblock to mempool and back. Websocket support for NFT updates makes it easier for developers to listen for NFT events included in transactions, NFT events relevant to specific collections and events related to a single asset.
- This month we also made improvements to our API documentation by adding examples for microblocks, faucets, fees and fungible tokens.

- This month, Hiro shared a hyperchains update detailing our latest milestone: NFT use case on devnet. The update includes a video walkthrough for how to interact (mint, deposit, transfer and withdraw) with an NFT within a hyperchain contract as well as a step-by-step guide. We are hosting a hyperchains AMA on August 11th to take questions from the Stacks community. Set a reminder for the AMA here and submit your questions here.
- The latest Clarinet release includes enhanced hyperchain integration, microblocks display in the terminal UI, improved block/ microblock fork handling, and chainhook improvements. We’ve added four new features in Clarinet and published a roadmap on what you can expect in the coming months.

- The latest release of the Stacks Explorer includes an important change from server side rendering to client side rendering on the /txid, /address, /block, /blocks, and /homepage pages. This resulted in up to 83% performance improvements for certain pages such as the Address page. This not only improves the performance of the Explorer, but also decreases the load that the Explorer has on the Stacks API.
- You may have also noticed a new feature when viewing pending transactions. This block visualizer is designed to help users understand the connection between BTC and STX as well as help answer the question of "when will my transaction be confirmed?” This is a first version of this feature and we will continue to iterate on designs based on community feedback.
