This is the first public cross-platform Zap release. Everything you need to experience the Lightning Network is packaged in this release. This release runs LND with neutrino, autopilot enabled and on Bitcoin's testnet.
NOTE: the version of
lnd packaged includes a breaking change. As a result, if you've previously used
lnd at the command line) before updating we recommend that users close out all their active channels, and also transfer any testnet coins they wish to hold onto to an external wallet before updating.
Before updating, users will need to remove all data from
lnd's home data directory. This is required as there have been some breaking database changes within
lnd itself. Depending on your operating system, the data directory will be found in a different location on the file system:
This release is pinned against the following commit of lnd: lightningnetwork/lnd@e30f869
Verifying the Release
In order to verify the release, you'll need to have
gpg2 installed on your system. Once you've obtained a copy (and hopefully verified that as well), you'll first need to import
jimmymow's key if you haven't done so already:
curl https://keybase.io/jimmymow/pgp_keys.asc | gpg --import
The keybase page of jimmymow includes several attestations across distinct platforms in order to provide a degree of confidence that this release was really signed by "jimmymow".
Once you have his PGP key you can verify the release (assuming
manifest-v0.1.0-beta.txt.sig are in the current directory) with:
gpg --verify manifest-v0.1.0-beta.txt.sig
That will verify the signature on the main manifest page which ensures integrity and authenticity of the zip you've downloaded locally. Next, depending on your operating system you should then re-calculate the
sha256 sum of the zip, and compare that with the following hashes (which are included in the manifest file):

One can use the
shasum -a 256 <file name here> tool in order to re-compute the
sha256 hash of the target zip for your operating system. The produced hash should be compared with the hashes listed above and they should match exactly.
