BetaNet Update: Version 2.0.10

We are planning to upgrade BetaNet to version 2.0.10 on Monday, Feb 3rd 2020 1:00PM EST.

This upgrade contains few smaller user-facing issues that have been reported. If you have your
node set to automatic updates, you don’t need to do anything. It will automatically update to the newer version whenever that becomes available.

If this is not the case, you can update the binary, but aren’t required to do so. Given that this isn’t a protocol upgrade release, no upgrade is required.

Summary of Contained Changes in Upgrade:

  1. Security

    • Disable pprof endpoints by default
  2. Rest API

    • Make graceful exit of a node that is waiting for WaitForBlock call
    • Avoid waiting for block that won’t be reached due to unsupported protocol upgrade.
  3. Goal

    • Fix concurrent access to wallet handles cache in goal
    • Improve lockFile error handling
    • Updates to the goal node status to report unsupported protocol upgrade
    • Interconnect relays on a locally deployed network
  4. Catchup

    • Avoid making catchup requests for expected unsupported protocol blocks
    • Move EnsureDigest logic into the catchup service
  5. Telemetry & Logging

    • Optionally write telemetry as info log
    • Avoid starting the Telemetry service when its not configured to run
    • Use service-wide logger instead of logging.Base() in agreement
    • Improve algons error logging - include request body
  6. Testing

    • Two fixes to basicCatchup_test: cloned node not stopped and env var conflict
    • Add an e2e test for catchup service stop on unsupported protocol version
    • Relax StartNetwork regex
    • Execute e2e tests one at a time on arm64
    • Fail e2e-go tests when node panics
    • Run compiled binaries on various linux platforms after build
  7. Platform

    • Avoid upgrading boost on travis Mac builds
    • Make ARM64 build mandatory
    • Binaries compiled on Ubuntu 18.04 would statically link
  8. Agreement

    • Bugfix: Fix last relevant proposal period in agreement protocol
  9. Misc

    • Update copyright to use date range
    • Goal docs tweaks
    • Faster stringer implementation for Address
    • Add support for automated build system

To update your current version of BetaNet to 2.0.10, run the following goal command:

./ -c beta -i -d <betanet-data-directory> -n

If you haven’t already done so, we also advise setting up a CRON job to automatically update your algorand networks. If you haven’t done this for BetaNet, you can follow the instructions here:
