Right now, the Litecoin Core team is focusing on upgrading Litecoin to 0.13.1, which will include important features such as SegWit. Finishing the upgrade will fulfill major requirements in the Roadmap and will also pave the way for the newly proposed confidential transaction functionality.
As Litecoin development is becoming more exciting and inspiring, four new members just joined the team. All of them are very experienced in software development. Training of them is progressing smoothly. We will introduce more details of them later once the training is finished.
