Here’s the list of updates in this build:

** Major Updates **
. Networking stack replaced with HTTP / WebSockets based implementation. RPC calls (eg CatchUp) now standard HTTP GET requests.
. Participation keys now use our custom VRF implementation (based on draft spec) - removes dependency on libsodium package
. New rewards implementation in effect
** Other Updates **
. Added algokey tool for command-line private key manipulation
. Updated auctionmaster to use the same key encoding format (seed
instead of msgpack-encoded crypto.SignatureSecrets), and updated various
docs and scripts that used to invoke auctionmaster -initkey.
. Added ping to gossip network for measuring latencies
. Created new partkeys for genesis accounts and made sure they work
. Added CORS header whitelist to kmd
. Upgraded to go 1.12
. Update.sh now cleans up temp files/folders, for servers that don’t regularly restart.
. Updated goal to support multiple data directories (use multiple -d <datadir> -d <datadir>)
. Created find-nodes.sh script to locate data directories under a given parent (dirs with genesis.json).
. Completed Raspberry Pi support (tested on rpi3) – unsupported :slightly_smiling_face:
. Reduced some telemetry clutter, restored some missing events from network rewrite
. Removed lots of dead / obsolete code
. Added genesis ID to transactions to prevent possible cross-ledger replay attack
. Added algod REST API call to fetch suggested transaction params, including fee, protocol, genesis ID, and round number.
. Switched to new method for computing the block seed, improved defense for more attacks
. Optionally use mlockall for kmd (linux-only) - prevents swapping secrets to disk
. Lots of cleanup and correctness work in Agreement code to more closely match spec
. Significant increase in test coverage of Agreement code
. Added new Version property config.json to track config versions and support migration between versions
. Several performance optimizations around database access and ledger operations
. Fixed cleanup race in server shutdown for kmd
. Added more accurate txpool priority calculation
. Added -v switch to carpenter to show reason for rejected votes
. Added tabular format to carpenter with -table option
. Normalized some kmd api endpoints
. Fixed multisig delete endpoint
. Added optimization to cancel block validation when better blocks are received
. kmd now allows multisig signing with any wallet
. Added goal kmd start and goal kmd stop to start kmd and specify its timeout (edited)

Great, thanks for the info

#4

Round for next consensus protocol is larger than Last committed block + 1. Is This normal?

./goal -d ./data node status

Last committed block: 11541
Time since last block: 2.7s
Sync Time: 0.0s
Last consensus protocol: v0
Next consensus protocol: v1
Round for next consensus protocol: 20300
Next consensus protocol supported: true

#5

This is expected yes. This build includes a protocol upgrade that adds the genesis ID to transactions. That upgrade will take effect at round 20300.
