We're pleased to announce c-lightning 0.7, named by Mark Beckwith.

Highlights for Users

  • Plugins are here, with frameworks for C, Python and Go! Write your own cool extensions!
  • Much better pay implementation (a plugin!) will folllow route hints, give ongoing paystatus.
  • All amount parameters take 'msat', 'sat', or 'btc' to avoid satoshi/millisatoshi confusion.
  • If your node ran out of memory with gossipd consuming 100% CPU, that and several other crashes are fixed!
  • Reproducible builds for Ubuntu, based on Ubuntu 18.04.1.

Highlights for the network

  • option_dataloss_protect fixed and reenabled for everyone.
  • We accept some known lnd protocol oddities rather than spitting the dummy and closing the channel.
  • You can no longer make unpayable "wumbo" invoices.

More details can be found in the https://github.com/ElementsProject/lightning/blob/v0.7.0/CHANGELOG.md:

Contributions

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

Since 0.6.3 we've had 284 commits from 16 different authors, 5 of whom were first-time c-lightning contributors:

  • Alekos Filini
  • fanquake
  • Michael Schmoock
  • Rene Pickhardt
  • @wailo

That's comparable with the last release, but in 7 weeks instead of 10: kudos!

Cheers,
Rusty, Christian and ZmnSCPxj.
