An upgraded version of TRON Virtual Machine (TVM) and a ‘secret project’ are launched on July 30, 2018
The function of the virtual machine is to assist developers on Main Net in creating their own version of blockchain, which allows for coin creation or the implementation of smart contracts.
The name of the secret project is Atlas, that is a collaborative project that both BitTorrent and Tron are part of. The roadmap has supposedly been updated to cover this new project, and it seems that the details will be explicitly disclosed near the end of August.

This version includes a new contract architecture with support for ERC-721 and other token standards. In V2 new Asset Proxies are deployed for each unique asset type.

Smart contracts can now generate 0x orders using a custom signature verification function.
