We highly recommend you upgrade to this release soon; it fixes a crashing bug which has been plaguing multiple users (reproduced and verified fixed by our intrepid release-namers above).
Highlights for Users
- Private channel creation support.
option_dataloss_protecttemporarily disabled, as it seems incompatible with lnd in some cases.
- Better handling of less common BOLT11 invoices.
- Less crashy!
- Alpha release of plugin support (use
./configure --enable-plugins), so you can extend your node's capabilities (see https://github.com/ElementsProject/lightning/blob/master/doc/plugins.md)
Highlights for the network
- We no longer send invalid error messages if you get a peer id wrong.
- We allow
funding_lockedwhich lnd sometimes does (we used to close channel!).
