History:

Build 3.0.1 - 2018-05-07

Build 3.0.0 - 2018-05-02

  • Implementation of Hard fork on block 210000
    • PIP - 0010: 50% inflation reduction
    • PIP - 0011: 20% Development reward
    • PIP - 0017: Anonymity via transaction mixing (multioperation)
    • New target calc on protocol V3 in order to reduce the sinusoidal effect
      • Harmonization of the sinusoidal effect modifying the rise / fall by 50% calculating over the last 10 blocks only when increase/decrease is high
  • New Safebox Snapshoting
    • This allow quickly rollback/commit directly to Safebox instead of create a separate Safebox on memory (read from disk... use more ram...)
    • Is usefull when detecting posible orphan blocks in order to check which chain is the highest chain without duplicating a safebox to compare
  • New Node network operations
    • Get pending operations (code $0030)
      • Implementation of the PIP-0013 (not exactly but with similar features)
    • Get account (code $0031)
      • This call will allow a simple third party app communicate directly to a node to get account info (balance, n_operation, name, public key... )
    • Reserverd codes from $1000 to $1FFF
      • A node will not break connection if those codes are used, but will response with ERRORCODE_NOT_IMPLEMENTED ($00FF)
  • MultiOperation: PIP-0017
    • Multioperation allows a transactional like operations, they can include transactions and change info operations in a signle multioperation
      • Allow to send coins from N accounts to M receivers in a transaction mixing, without knowledge of how many coins where sent from "Alice" to "Bob" if properly mixed
      • Ophash can be previously known by all signers before signing. They must sign only if multioperation includes it's transactions as expected
      • OpHash of a multioperation will allow to include n_operation and account of each signer account, but md160hash chunk will be the same for all
  • JSON-RPC changes:
    • Added param "startblock" to "getaccountoperations" in order to start searching backwards on a specific block. Note: Balance will not be returned on each operation due cannot be calculated. Default value "0" means start searching on current block as usual

  • Introducing Protocol v2.
    • https://github.com/PascalCoin/PascalCoin/blob/master/PascalCoinWhitePaperV2.pdf
    • Core Changes:
      • New safebox hash calculation algorithm to allow safebox checkpointing
      • Improved difficulty target calculation to obtain a more stable average blocktime of 5 minutes, given abrupt hashpower fluctuations
      • Bug-fix for China region users
      • Anti-spam measures
        • New Consensus Rule: A block can only contain 1 zero fee operation per sender account. If a sender account issues 2 or more zero-fee operations, that block is invalid.
      • SafeBox now stored in chunks to facilitate checkpoint distribution
      • Reintroduce orphan blocks operations on main blockchain
    • Added Checkpointing:
      • Checkpoint created on every 100'th block

    • Addded In-Protocol PASA Exchanging:
      • New Operation: List Account, used to list an account for public or private sale
      • New Operation: Delist Account, used to delist an account from sale
      • New Operation: Buy Account, used to purchase an account lised for sale
      • Updated Operation: Transaction, can be used in place of Buy Account operation in private account sales
    • RPC API Changes:
      • All changes are backwards-compatible for current 3rd-party infrastructure providers (exchanges, wallets).
      • However, use of param "ophash" has been changed in V2, see "Operation Object changes" section to know how to use "old_ophash" param value
      • JSON changes:
        • Account Object changes:
          • Added param "state" (values can be "normal" or "listed". When listed then account is for sale)
          • If "state" is "listed" then will fill next values:
            • "locked_until_block", "price", "seller_account"
            • "private_sale" : Boolean value
            • "new_enc_pubkey" : (Only on "private_sale" = true) - HEXASTRING with private sale encoded public key

          • New param "subtype" : Based on "optype" param, this param allows to discrimine point of view of operation (sender/receiver/buyer/seller ...)
          • New param "signer_account" : Will return the account that signed (and payed fee) for this operation
          • Param "enc_pubkey": Will return both change key and the private sale public key value
          • About method "findoperation" and "ophash"
            • Due to changed "ophash" param value calculation, method "findoperation" will find old "ophash" values too
            • This is to avoid 100% compatibility, but remember that returned "Operation object" will contain "ophash" value calculated in new format only (you can read "old_ophash" value in older blocks)

Build 1.5.6.0 - 2017-05-03

  • Allow multiselect accounts (GUI wallet)
  • Priority for operations with fee:
    • Allow miner server (pools) to select what to mine using pascalcoin_daemon.ini file (daemon only)
      • RPC_SERVERMINER_MAX_OPERATIONS_PER_BLOCK: Max of operations that can be included in a block (Default 5000, min value 1000)
      • RPC_SERVERMINER_MAX_ZERO_FEE_OPERATIONS: Max of operations with 0 fee that can be included in a block (Default 2000, min value 400)
    • Operations with fee have always preference over 0 fee operations (will be mined first)
    • If operations with fee fills all the buffer, then no zero fee operation will be included
  • Fixed bug on receiving big blocks and slow net connection to prevent never synchronize
  • Fixed bug on miner server that produces "invalid operations hash" error on valid solutions with 0 operations
  • Fixed bug on file storage
  • Fixed minor bugs

Build 1.5.5.0 - 2017-04-11

  • Corrected fee result on RPC calls as a negative number on "Change key" operations
  • Corrected PASCURRENCY value to be limited as a 4 decimal digits on RPC calls
  • JSON-RPC method "getaccountoperations" changed: if param "start" is -1, will include pending operations, otherwise not
  • Fixed bug: On "getaccountoperations" if an account had a lot of operations (receive tx included) then sometimes app crashed when executing depth search.
    • Note: High depth search is slow because it search always starting from current state, going backwards, in order to return past balance. This can be a slow method on some account with high transactions volume.

Build 1.5.4.0 - 2017-03-14

  • Added Network Timestamp Adjustment (NAT) to calc valid timestamps
    • Minimum 4 active connections to calc median used for NAT, otherwise use local timestamp
    • Based on IP's (to prevent a malicious IP timejacking, each IP is only used once)
    • Removed IP's and recalculated after disconnecting (to prevent malicious node connecting/disconnecting for timejacking)
  • New blocks will not be accepted if using future timestamp greater than NAT timestamp + 15 seconds (also, mantaining current protocol rule >= lastBlock.timestamp)
  • Network protocol fixed to 5-5 (Nodes with version prior to 1.5 will not be allowed)
  • Added protection for non included operations on a block, to prevent continuous sending. Only will resend operations once.
  • Bug #27 fixed: Invalid timestamp on FPC (https://github.com/PascalCoin/PascalCoin/issues/27)
  • JSON-RPC
    • Method "getconnections" added "timediff" to know timestamp diff of node
    • Method "payloaddecrypt" added "unenc_hexpayload" result value with HEXASTRING of unencrypted payload
  • Fixed some "Random Memory access violation errors" bugs found caused by multithreading and disconnected nodes

Build 1.5.3.0 - 2017-03-06

  • Fixed issue #23: RPC findoperation fails to find operation by opHash
  • Miners best practices: Sending new job with new timestamp every 30 seconds
  • Buffering last 10 sent jobs to miners
  • Small delay prior to destroy a connection to prevent exception handling
  • Minor logs changes

Build 1.5.2.0 - 2017-03-03

  • Added a jobs buffer for miners. This will allow to submit old job solutions (limited buffer). (Fix the "tx" issue)
  • Miner jobs will not be sent every time a transaction is received, thet will be buffered and sent every few seconds (Fix the "tx" issue)
  • Better network performance, allowing more operations and nodes thanks to buffering before relaying
  • Daemon: Allow select on ini file how many connections can handle
  • Fixed a locking when deleting connections

Build 1.5.1.0 - 2017-02-20

  • Memory leak fixed on RPC-JSON commands

  • Improved network connection
  • Added JSON-RPC port 4003 protection Whitelist (only allowed IP's can use JSON-RPC)

Build 1.4.3.0 - 2017-02-02
