According to a report shared by Stellar Foundation a couple of hours ago, Kelp GUI version 1.0.0-rc2 (beta) and Kelp CLI v1.11.0 are now live on Stellar mainnet with major changes.
Going by the record, these new versions have been released and available for users to download a few days before the recent official announcement on Twitter by the Stellar Development Foundation.
Stellar Foundation tweeted, “Kelp GUI v1.0.0-rc2 (beta) is now available on the Stellar mainnet!”

What Does Kelp Mean
Kelp is a free open-source trading bot for the Stellar universal marketplace. It’s created to make trading seamless for users. Kelp helps traders to automate the execution of a trading strategy.
GUI on the other hand is designed to make Kelp more accessible for users. Initially, Kelp was available as a command-line tool, requiring users to have a complex configuration file to deal with.
GUI serves as a means for users to check for errors on their configuration files. It also gives users the means to view all running bots, including balances on the same page. In a nutshell, GUI enhances Kelp’s user experience.
