Replace: The most recent steady model is EOSIO v1.8.1
As a contributor to the continued growth and enhancement of the EOSIO™ software program, we’re happy to announce a brand new steady launch obtainable for EOSIO. You will discover extra particulars about EOSIO v1.8.1 within the GitHub repository. Documentation on the EOSIO Developer Portal has been up to date to replicate this launch.
This launch marks main enhancements for EOSIO paving the best way for a safer and scalable future for EOSIO primarily based blockchains. A lot of consensus protocol improve options have been launched which require modifications to the protocol guidelines and alignment by block producing nodes for the improve to be efficiently deployed.
Moreover, the State Historical past Plugin has additionally been promoted to a steady product that’s prepared to be used in manufacturing environments.
Please be aware, we advocate all EOSIO Block Producers consider and deploy solely after reviewing the suggestions offered in GitHub for the improve course of.
This launch introduces foundational mechanisms that are wanted to facilitate the activation of the consensus protocol improve. These mechanisms will permit a two-thirds majority of energetic block producers of EOSIO blockchains to activate options individually to switch the protocol guidelines when finishing the improve. All nodes will have to be domestically configured to just accept these upgrades, which may be so simple as putting in a brand new model of the nodeos software program. Every characteristic is for essentially the most half designed to be à la carte, i.e. every characteristic may be activated independently of each other, nonetheless, some options might have dependencies on different options as famous in every subject on GitHub.
Earlier than deploying the improve to any non-test networks, every protocol improve characteristic needs to be deployed and verified on check networks. This check improve course of may give Block Producers of their respective EOSIO blockchain networks apply with finishing up the steps essential to efficiently coordinate the activation of the primary characteristic, which is able to fork out any nodes that haven’t but up to date to the brand new model of nodeos by the point of activation. The method may even inform Block Producers of the necessities for nodes to improve nodeos to v1.8.x from v1.7.x and earlier, and it might assist them resolve on an applicable deadline to be given as discover to stakeholders of the community for when the primary characteristic shall be activated.
An in-depth overview of the protocol improve options on this launch and their implications to builders and customers of EOSIO platforms is out there in our preliminary put up asserting the discharge candidate EOSIO v1.8.0-rc1. We strongly advocate a radical evaluation and analysis earlier than continuing to replace to this newest model.
If you’re concerned with offering suggestions and dealing extra intently with our crew to enhance EOSIO for builders, you’ll be able to ship our developer relations crew an electronic mail at [email protected].
