We're pleased to announce c-lightning 0.6.2, named by @practicalswift.

We highly recommend you upgrade to this release soon; it will improve overall network health!

Highlights for c-lightning users:

  • Invoices now contain an hint on a good incoming channel to use, for more reliable payments ("RouteBoost").
  • listforwards command to show all forwarded HTLCs, and getinfo shows total fees (both only from upgrade only)
  • Reduced logging spam at debug level.
  • A multitude of bugfixes which make things generally much nicer.

Highlights for the network

  • We no longer spam our peers with dead channels.
  • Redundant gossip updates are completely eliminated.
  • We advertise htlc_maximum_msat for our channels as per recent BOLT update.

Internal Improvements

  • Significant optimization in JSON command response.
  • connectd and hsmd are now part of the growing literate documentation effort.
  • Testsuite now uses flask to override bitcoind responses for testing.

More details can be found in the CHANGELOG:



We're grateful for all the bug reports and suggestions and your patience as we sometimes struggled to address them: please keep them coming!

This is down from last release, but it was a much shorter timeline too!
