Other platform improvements
Throughout the year, we have made other notable updates to our platform, emphasizing our dedication to providing a robust DEX platform. The upgrade to the .NET Framework v4.8 for the 1E Client brings a more robust and secure foundation. We’ve also significantly improved support for the 1E Client-Switch web socket. Expanding our system’s compatibility, MacOS Sonoma is now supported, reflecting our commitment to a broader range of operating systems.
Our authentication and integration capabilities have been substantially enhanced. The introduction of OAuth-based authentication for domain-separated instances simplifies the authentication process. Furthermore, our platform can now display 1E Experience Scores for both new and old APIs, providing users with additional detailed insights. For customers maintaining on-premises environments, OAuth authentication requests are managed through the Mid Server, enhancing both connectivity and security.
In addition to these major updates, we’ve implemented minor bug fixes and made some rebranding adjustments. These refinements improve the overall user experience and ensure our platform remains aligned with the latest industry standards and practices.
