Lisk is a blockchain application platform whose aim is to bring blockchain technology to the forefront by an SDK [Sidechain Development Kit] written in JavaScript.

This release was predominantly focused on improvements, code refactors, and minor bug fixes. The most significant completion include the support of multiple networks with one installation. To make that possible, they placed all network-specific files into corresponding directories, with a separate one per network.
