Releases and launch candidates
New releases and launch candidates for widespread Bitcoin infrastructure tasks. Please think about upgrading to new releases or serving to to check launch candidates.
- C-Lightning 0.10.0 is the latest main launch of this LN node software program. It incorporates various enhancements to its API and consists of experimental assist for dual funding.
- BTCPay 188.8.131.52 fixes minor points found after final week’s safety launch.
Notable code and documentation modifications
Notable modifications this week in Bitcoin Core, C-Lightning, Eclair, LND, Rust-Lightning, libsecp256k1, Hardware Wallet Interface (HWI), Rust Bitcoin, BTCPay Server, Bitcoin Improvement Proposals (BIPs), and Lightning BOLTs.
- Bitcoin Core #20286 removes the fields addresses and reqSigs from the responses of the RPCs gettxout, getrawtransaction, decoderawtransaction, decodescript, gettransaction, and the REST endpoints /relaxation/tx, /relaxation/getutxos, /relaxation/block. When a well-defined tackle exists, the responses now embrace the elective subject tackle as an alternative. The deprecated fields had been used within the context of naked multisig which has no substantial use on the community right this moment. The deprecated fields will be output by way of the configuration choice -deprecatedrpc=addresses till the choice is eliminated in Bitcoin Core 23.0.
- Bitcoin Core #20197 improves the range of peer connections by updating the inbound peer eviction logic to guard the longest-running onion friends. It additionally provides unit check protection for the present eviction safety logic. Onion friends have traditionally been deprived by the eviction standards resulting from their increased latency relative to IPv4 and IPv6 friends, resulting in customers submitting multiple issues. An initial response to the difficulty started reserving slots for localhost friends as a proxy for onion friends. Later, explicit detection of inbound onion connections was added.
With the up to date logic, half of the protected slots are allotted to any onion and localhost friends, with onion friends receiving priority over localhost friends. Now that assist for the I2P privateness community has been added to Bitcoin Core (see Newsletter #139), a subsequent step might be to increase eviction safety to I2P friends, as they often have increased latency than onion friends.
- Eclair #1750 removes assist for Electrum and the corresponding 10,000 traces of code. Electrum was beforehand utilized by Eclair for cell wallets. Nevertheless, a brand new implementation, Eclair-kmp, is now really helpful to be used by cell wallets, making Electrum assist for Eclair pointless.
- Eclair #1751 provides a blocking choice to the payinvoice command which causes calls to payinvoice to dam till the fee is accomplished. Beforehand, inefficiently polling the getsentinfo API was required for customers to know when funds accomplished.
