1.1.6 Chia Blockchain 2021-05-20
- This is the initial release of our DNS introducer. We built a far too simple basic introducer that we hoped to replace as quickly as possible with an introducer that uses DNS in the style of Bitcoin. This release will now use both and as we gain testing with the DNS version, we will slowly be phasing the classic introducers out. This should significantly help in finding nodes to connect and sync to.
- You can now whitelist networks and hosts so that a node can always connect with chosen peers. https://github.com/Chia-Network/chia-blockchain/blob/main/chia/util/initial-config.yaml#L273
- We added a simple profiler to track performance times in the application (see /chia/util/profiler.py for instructions).
- We added a transaction filter to get_header_blocks_in_range.
- There is now an unspent coin count and pending coin removal count to wallet_rpc_api.
- Added configuration options for moving an install to testnet and back (use
chia configure -t true|false).
- Added Arabic language support.
