I want to follow the most up to date developments of Bitcoin, (such as M of N transaction confirmation).

Who are the primary developers of Bitcoin and what is the most efficient way to track the progress of this and similar activities?

The core developers are listed on the main Bitcoin page, while everyone that contributed code are listed on the About page. Probably the most up-to-date info on what is happening with the code would be on the GitHub repo.


The progress is being tracked through the "Bitcoin Improvement Proposal". There is a grid of several new features that may or may not make it into a future version of the client.
