Activation codes are available
The Tezos Foundation is pleased to announce that activation codes are now available to contributors who have completed the identity verification process at https://verification.tezos.com.
Contributors who have completed the identity verification process may log in to the website to obtain activation codes. This process may be completed before or after the betanet launch. Activation codes will be required to access the recommended allocations of the corresponding public key hashes after the betanet goes live.
In a previous announcement, we outlined some of the milestones for the project to reach before a genesis block would be proposed. We are pleased with the progress:

Correct Michelson calling-convention to issue operations instead of calls
Enforce checkpointing in the shell for bootstrapping nodes
Provide hardware signature capabilities
Improve the reliability of the baking daemon
Compute gas costs
Items in progress:
