* '''June 19''': A [http://conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=78036&#p78036 huge long-term collaborative effort] is completed, showing that all glider-constructible [[still life]]s can (at least in theory) be constructed using less than two [[glider]]s per [[bit]].
+
* '''Feb. 9''': [[Rob Liston]] [https://www.conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=89261#p89261 discovers] a new p16 oscillator, [[Rob's p16]], using [[apgsearch]]. It is the smallest known p16 by both [[population]] and [[bounding box]], the first p16 to appear from an asymmetric [[soup]], the first [[strictly volatile]] p16, and the first new [[rotor]] to be discovered by asymmetric soup search since the 1980s.
* '''June 2''': Goldtiger997 completes a [http://conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=77029#p77029 glider-to-25P3H1V0.2 converter], based on [[Martin Grant]]'s [[25P3H1V0.2]] synthesis from 2017.
+
* '''Feb. 8''': All 19-bit [[still life]]s [https://www.conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=89061#p89061 are confirmed] to have valid [[glider syntheses]].
* '''May 29''': Thomas Cabaret makes available a [https://cp4space.wordpress.com/2019/06/11/self-replicator-caught-on-video/ Passe-Science video] featuring [[self-constructing]] CA patterns, including several minutes showing details of the [[0E0P metacell]].
+
* '''Jan. 26''': [[Dave Greene]] [https://conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=4279 creates] LifeSuper, an extended version of [[LifeHistory]] for advanced pattern notation.
* '''May 25''': Goldtiger997 completes a [http://conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=76686#p76686 glider-to-crab converter], with the help of a script implementing a universal glider synchronization [[toolkit]].
+
* '''Jan. 26''': Entity Valkyrie [https://www.conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1557&p=88186#p88186 constructs] a period-11040 [[spider]] [[gun]], the first gun to fire a [[c/5 orthogonal]] spaceship.
* '''Apr. 21''': [http://conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=75278#p75278 Improvements to glider syntheses] mean that every 15-bit still life has a recipe with at most 13 gliders. The upper limit is currently 12 gliders for 14-bit still lifes, 10 gliders for 13 bits, 8 gliders for 12 bits, and 7 gliders for 11 bits.
 
* '''Apr. 17''': [[Tanner Jacobi]] and [[Matthias Merzenich]] set several new bounding-box records with a [http://conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=75185#p75185 new glider gun mechanism] based on filtered MWSSes.
 
* '''Apr. 14''': [[Michael Simkin]] completes a [[self-constructing]] puffer pattern which he calls [[Remini]] ("retro Gemini"),  using a single-channel design with nothing but 1970s circuit mechanisms.
 
* '''Apr. 10''': [[Jeremy Tan]] releases a new glider recipe database, [http://conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=74753#p74753 Shinjuku], specifically for tracking lowest-cost syntheses.
 
* '''Apr. 6-7''': [[LifeViewer]] standardizes support for [[triangular neighbourhood]]s starting with Build 320.
 
* '''Apr. 5''': An exhaustive computer search run by [[Nathaniel Johnston]] reveals that there are 14,223,867,298 strict and 15,851,861,075 pseudo [[:Category:Still lifes with 33 cells|33-bit]] [[still life]]s, including eleven pseudo still lifes that can be partitioned into [[Triple pseudo still life|three stable pieces but not two]], and none that can be partitioned into [[Quad pseudo still life|four stable pieces but not two or three]].[http://conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=74524#p74524]
