We're pleased to announce c-lightning 0.6.3, named by @molxyz and @ctrlbreak.

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_protect temporarily 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 update_fee before funding_locked which lnd sometimes does (we used to close channel!).

More details can be found in the https://github.com/ElementsProject/lightning/blob/v0.6.3/CHANGELOG.md:
