@oxarbitrage oxarbitrage released this Jul 16, 2019 · 162 commits to master since this release

UPDATE: this release has a stability issue, please use 3.2.1.

The BitShares Core software has been updated to the 3.2.0 Feature Release. The Core software is used to build the validation nodes that perform consensus of all transactions on the BitShares blockchain. This release includes additions and improvements but does not include any changes to the consensus protocol.

Documentation for users may be be found at How BitShares Works.

Documentation for BitShares developers may be now be found at the new BitShares Developer Portal.

Who Should Upgrade?

No upgrade is required by any operator of a validation node. Yet many operators will benefit by upgrading.

Operators of API nodes should upgrade

Note: some API changes may break existing clients, described in the API section.

Users of the command line interface wallet (CLI) will benefit from stability improvements (1690, 1772), improved security while unlocking and improved logging.

Upgrade Process


A replay will automatically be executed after the upgrade.

If the config file (config.ini) includes the setting required-participation = false, the corresponding line should be removed or commented out, or change false to an appropriate number between 0 and 100, otherwise witness_node won't start.

Please check the 3.1.0 Release Notes for more information if you are upgrading from a version prior to 3.1.0.

Add set_auto_subscription API, fix subscription issues found in get_assets, get_accounts and lookup_accounts 726 777 1731

The get_full_accounts API

  • will return different fields: two fields (withdraws and htlcs) have been removed and are replaced by four fields (withdraws_from, withdraws_to, htlcs_from, htlcs_to);
  • lists returned by the API are limited to certain sizes (configurable by node operator), a more_data_available field is added to indicate what lists are incomplete due to the limit. Clients need to call other APIs to query for next pages of data.

Calls to get_full_accounts, get_accounts, and get_assets will no longer produce error messages when querying for non-existent accounts or assets. Instead,

  • get_full_accounts will return an empty result,
  • get_accounts will return null, and
  • get_assets will return null.
