Following months of anticipation, Decentraland has now launched the beta version of its all new software development kit (SDK) 7. The kit is publicly available for anyone to use and build upon, thus furthering Metaverse development. Among the newly improved features creators can look forward to enjoying are a new UI, improved performance, access to the latest version of TypeScript, expanded external library compatibility, and more.
The kit has been built with three principles in mind: usability, performance, and portability. Still, it’s not the final product, as there are many improvements to come. For now, the goal is to pave the way for the creation of a powerful editor that will allow creators to simultaneously work with visual interfaces as well as code.
The release of SDK 7 coincides with the release of the first version of Decentraland Editor. It’s a tool that helps to both streamline and simplify the process of scene development. Ultimately, the editor should enable visual editing for those who want it. Therefore, being proficient in coding isn’t necessary for scene development, and this makes building in the Metaverse more accessible.

The SDK should serve as an open protocol for creating metaverse content—open to any platform that may want to adopt it—accessible for anyone to use. 🙌
