@garyverhaegen-da garyverhaegen-da released this Jun 19, 2019

Sandbox

  • Introduced a new API for package management.
    See [#1311].
  • Fixed a bug in migration scripts that could cause databases originally created with older versions of the Sandbox to not upgrade schemas properly.
    See [#1682].

Java Codegen

  • Support generic types (including tuples) as contract keys in codegen.
    See [#1728].

Ledger API

  • A new command ExerciseByKey allows to exercise choices on active contracts referring to them by their key.
    See [#1366].

Java Bindings

  • The addition of the ExerciseByKey to the Ledger API is reflected in the bindings.
    See [#1366].
  • Release the Java Bindings to the public Maven Central repository. To move to using the Maven Central repository, remove the <repository>...</repository> and <pluginRepository>...</pluginRepository> blocks from Maven POM files that use version 0.13.5 (or later) of the Java Bindings.
    See [#1205].

DAML Studio

  • Closing and reopening scenario results will now show the results
    instead of an empty view.
    See [#1606].
  • The IDE now executes tasks in parallel.

Docs

  • Added 'An introduction to DAML'.
  • Added 'Visualizing DAML Contracts'.

Language

  • Add an instance for IsParties (Optional Party), allowing Optional values to be used in signatory, observer and maintainer clauses.

SDK

  • This marks the first release that is no longer released for the
    da assistant. It is still possible to use it to get older SDK
    releases. Take a look at documentation for the new daml
    assistant for migration instructions.

Sandbox

  • Fixed a bug in an internal data structure that broke contract keys.
    See #1623.

DAML Studio

  • Double the gRPC message limit used for the scenario service. This
    avoids issues on large projects.

Ledger API

  • Slash (/) is now an allowed character in contract, workflow, application
    and command identifiers.

@garyverhaegen-da garyverhaegen-da released this Jun 13, 2019

0.12.25 — 2019-06-13

DAML Integration Kit

  • Added new CLI flag --all-tests to the Ledger API Test Tool to run all default and optional tests.
  • Added new CLI flag --command-submission-ttl-scale-factor to the
    Ledger API Test Tool. It scales time-to-live of commands sent for ledger processing (captured as Maximum Record Time in submitted transactions) for some suites. Useful to tune Maximum Record Time depending on the environment and the Ledger implementation under test.
  • Fixed various bugs in the daml-on-x ledger api server and index service.

Sandbox

  • Introduced a new API for party management.
    See #1312.

Scala bindings

  • New --root command-line option for limiting what templates are selected for codegen.
    See #1210.

Ledger API

  • Contract keys are now available for created events from the transaction service.
    See #1268.

Java Bindings

  • The addition of contract keys on created events in the Ledger API is reflected in the bindings.
    See #1268.

Java Codegen

  • Contracts decoded from the transaction service now expose their contract key (if defined).
    See #1268.

0.12.24 - 2019-06-06

DAML Studio

  • Fix errors due to unhandled $/cancelRequest and textDocument/willSave requests from showing up in the output tab in VSCode. These errors also caused an automatic switch from the problems tab to the output tab which should now no longer happen.
  • Note that upgrading the VSCode extension requires launching it via daml studio. If you launch VSCode directly, you might get issues due to an outdated extension.

0.12.23 - 2019-06-05

SQL Extractor

  • 50MiB is no longer hard-coded on extractor input for sandbox or any other server, permitting large packages, e.g. pass --ledger-api-inbound-message-size-max 62914560 to extractor to get a 60MiB limit. See #1520.
  • Improving logging. See #1518.

DAML Language

  • BREAKING CHANGE: Contract key maintainers must now explicitly be computed from the contract key using the implicit key variable. For instance, if you have key (bank, accountId) : (Party, Text) and want bank to be the maintainer, you have to write maintainer key._1 (before, you could write maintainer bank).

DAML Compiler

  • BREAKING CHANGE: Drop support for DAML-LF 1.3. Compiling to DAML-LF 1.4 should work without any code changes, although we highly recommend not specifying a target DAML-LF version at all. (The ledger server still supports DAML-LF 1.3.)

  • Fix initialization of package-db for non-default DAML-LF versions. This fixes issues when using daml build --target 1.3 (or other target versions).

DAML Standard Library

  • Add enumerate function.

Navigator

  • Fixed a regression where Navigator console was not able to inspect contracts and events. See #1454.
  • 50MiB is no longer hard-coded on extractor input for sandbox or any other server, permitting large packages, e.g. pass --ledger-api-inbound-message-size-max 62914560 to extractor to get a 60MiB limit. See #1520.

Sandbox

  • Added recovery around failing ledger entry persistence queries using Postgres. See #1505.

0.12.22 - 2019-05-29

DAML Studio

  • Fixed a bug where type check errors would persist if there was a subsequent parse error.

DAML Compiler

  • BREAKING CHANGE: Drop support for DAML-LF 1.2. Compiling to DAML-LF 1.3 should work without any code changes, although we highly recommend not specifying a target DAML-LF version at all.
  • BREAKING CHANGE: By default damlc test must be executed in a project and will test the whole project. Testing individual files, potentially outside a project, requires passing the new --files flag.

SQL Extractor

  • The extractor --party option may now specify multiple parties, separated by commas;
    e.g. instead of --party Bob you can say --party Bob,Bar,Baz and get the contracts
    for all three parties in the database.
    See #1360 <https://github.com/digital-asset/daml/pull/1360>__.

  • The extractor --templates option to specify template IDs in the format:
    <module1>:<entity1>,<module2>:<entity2>. If not provided, extractor subscribes to all available templates.
    See #1352 <https://github.com/digital-asset/daml/issues/1352>__.

Sandbox

  • Fixed a bug in the SQL backend that caused transactions with a fetch node referencing a contract created in the same transaction to be rejected.
    See issue #1435.

Release Notes

SDK version: 0.12.21
Release date: 2019-05-28

DAML Assistant

  • The exposed-modules field in daml.yaml is now optional. If it is
    not specified, all modules in the project are exposed.
    See #1328.

  • You can now see all available versions with daml version using the --all flag.

DAML Compiler

  • BREAKING CHANGE: Drop support for DAML-LF 1.1. Compiling to DAML-LF 1.2 should work without any code changes, although we highly recommend not specifying a target DAML-LF version at all.

  • Make DAML-LF 1.5 the default version produced by the compiler.

DAML Standard Library

  • parseInt and parseDecimal now work at more extremes of values and accept leading plus signs.

DAML-LF

@garyverhaegen-da garyverhaegen-da released this May 23, 2019

DAML Assistant

The daml assistant is now ready to be used and the old da assistant will be deprecated in the near future. See https://docs.daml.com/tools/assistant.html for migration instructions.

Sandbox

  • Contract keys: Support arbitrary key expressions (this was accidentally omitted from 0.12.19).
Assets 6

@garyverhaegen-da garyverhaegen-da released this May 22, 2019

Ledger

  • Transaction filters in GetTransactionsRequest without any party are now rejected with INVALID_ARGUMENT instead of yielding an empty stream

    See #1250 for details.

DAML

  • Contract keys: The syntactic restriction on contract keys has been removed. They can be arbitray expressions now.

DAML-LF

  • Add new version 1.4 and make it the default version produced by damlc. It removes the syntactic restriction on contract keys.

Java Bindings

  • Bots: A class called LedgerTestView was added to make bot unit testing possible

DAML

  • BREAKING CHANGE - Syntax: Records with empty update blocks, e.g. foo with, is now an error (the fact it was ever accepted was a bug).

  • BREAKING CHANGE - Contract Keys: Before, maintainers were incorrectly not checked to be a subset of the signatories, now they are. See issue #1123

Sandbox

  • When loading a scenario with --scenario, the sandbox no longer compiles packages twice, see
    issue #1238.
  • When starting the sandbox, you can now choose to have it load all the .dar packages immediately
    with the --eager-package-loading flag. The default behavior is to load the packages only when
    a command requires them, which causes a delay for the first command that requires a yet-to-be-compiled
    package.
    See issue #1230.

SDK tools

  • The Windows installer is now signed. You might still see Windows
    defender warnings for some time but the publisher should now show
    "Digital Asset Holdings, LLC".

Documentation

  • Removed unnecessary dependency in the quickstart-java example project.
  • Removed the Configure Maven section from the installation instructions. This step is not needed anymore.

SDK tools

  • DAML Assistant: We've built a new and improved version of the SDK assistant, replacing da commands with daml commands. The documentation is updated to use the new assistant in this release.

    For a full guide to what's changed and how to migrate, see support/new-assistant`. To read about how to use the new daml Assistant, see tools/assistant.

DAML

  • BREAKING CHANGE - DAML Compiler: It is now an error to omit method bodies in class instance s if the method has no default. Almost all instances of such behaviour were an error - add in a suitable definition.

  • Contract keys: We've added documentation for contract keys, a way of specifying a primary key for contract instances. For information about how to use them, see daml/reference/contract-keys

  • BREAKING CHANGE - DAML Standard Library: Moved the Tuple and Either types to daml-prim:DA.Types rather than exposing internal locations.

    How to migrate:

    • You don't need to change DAML code as a result of this change.
    • People using the Java/Scala codegen need to replace import ghc.tuple.* or import da.internal.prelude.* with import da.types.*.
    • People using the Ledger API directly need to replace GHC.Tuple and DA.Internal.Prelude with DA.Types.
  • BREAKING CHANGE - DAML Standard Library: Don't expose the TextMap type via the Prelude anymore.

    How to migrate: Always import DA.TextMap when you want to use the TextMap type.

  • DAML Standard Library: Add String as a compatibility alias for Text.

Ledger API

  • BREAKING Removed the unused field com.digitalasset.ledger.api.v1.ExercisedEvent from com.digitalasset.ledger.api.v1.Event, because a :com.digitalasset.ledger.api.v1.Transaction never contains exercised events (only created and archived events): Issue #960

    This change is backwards compatible on the transport level, meaning:

    • new versions of ledger language bindings will work with previous versions of the Sandbox, because the field was never populated
    • previous versions of the ledger language bindings will work with new versions of the Sandbox, as the field was removed without any change in observable behavior

    How to migrate:

    • If you check for the presence of com.digitalasset.ledger.api.v1.ExercisedEvent when handling a com.digitalasset.ledger.api.v1.Transaction, you have to remove this code now.
  • Added the agreement text as a new field agreement_text to the CreatedEvent message. This means you now have access to the agreement text of contracts via the Ledger API.
    The type of this field is google.protobuf.StringValue to properly reflect the optionality on the wire for full backwards compatibility.
    See Google's wrappers.proto https://github.com/protocolbuffers/protobuf/blob/b4f193788c9f0f05d7e0879ea96cd738630e5d51/src/google/protobuf/wrappers.proto#L31-L34 for more information about StringValue.

    See #1110 for details.

  • Fixed: the CommandService.SubmitAndWait endpoint no longer rejects commands without a workflow identifier.

    See #572 for details.

Java Bindings

  • BREAKING Reflect the breaking change of Ledger API in the event class hierarchy:

    • Changed data.Event from an abstract class to an interface, representing events in a flat transaction.
    • Added interface data.TreeEvent, representing events in a transaction tree.
    • data.CreatedEvent and data.ArchivedEvent now implement data.Event.
    • data.CreatedEvent and data.ExercisedEvent now implement data.TreeEvent.
    • data.TransactionTree#eventsById is now Map<String, TreeEvent> (was previously Map<String, Event>).

    How to migrate:

    • If you are processing data.TransactionTree objects, you need to change the type of the processed events from data.Event to data.TreeEvent.
    • If you are checking for the presence of exercised events when processing data.Transaction objects, you can remove that code now. It would never have triggered in the first place, as transactions do not contain exercised events.
  • Java Codegen: You can now call a method to get a CreateAndExerciseCommand for each choice, for example:

.. code-block:: java
CreateAndExerciseCommand cmd = new MyTemplate(owner, someText).createAndExerciseAccept(42L);

In this case MyTemplate is a DAML template with a choice Accept and the resulting command will create a contract and exercise the Accept choice within the same transaction.

See #1092 for details.

  • Added agreement text of contracts: #1110

    • Java Bindings

      • Added field Optional<String> agreementText to data.CreatedEvent, to reflect the change in Ledger API.
    • Java Codegen

      • Added generated field Optional<String> TemplateName.Contract#agreementText.
      • Added generated static method TemplateName.Contract.fromCreatedEvent(CreatedEvent).
        This is the preferred method to use for converting a CreatedEvent into a Contract.
      • Added generated static method TemplateName.Contract.fromIdAndRecord(String, Record, Optional<String>).
        This method is useful for setting up tests, when you want to convert a Record into a contract without having to create a CreatedEvent first.
      • Deprecated generated static method TemplateName.Contract.fromIdAndRecord(String, Record) in favor of the new static methods in the generated Contract classes.
      • Changed the generated :ref:decoder utility class <daml-codegen-java-decoder-class> to use the new fromCreatedEvent method.
      • BREAKING Changed the return type of the getDecoder method in the generated decoder utility class from Optional<BiFunction<String, Record, Contract>> to Optional<Function<CreatedEvent, Contract>>.

    How to migrate:

    • If you are manually constructing instances of data.CreatedEvent (for example, for testing), you need to add an Optional<String> value as constructor parameter for the agreementText field.

    • You should change all calls to Contract.fromIdAndRecord to Contract.fromCreatedEvent.

      .. code-block:: java

      // BEFORE
      CreatedEvent event = ...;
      Iou.Contract contract = Iou.Contract.fromIdAndRecord(event.getContractId(), event.getArguments()));
      
      // AFTER
      CreatedEvent event = ...;
      Iou.Contract contract = Iou.Contract.fromCreatedEvent(event);
      
    • Pass the data.CreatedEvent directly to the function returned by the decoder's getDecoder method.
      If you are using the decoder utility class method fromCreatedEvent, you don't need to change anything.

      .. code-block:: java

      CreatedEvent event = ...;
      // BEFORE
      Optional<BiFunction<String, Record, Contract>> decoder = MyDecoderUtility.getDecoder(MyTemplate.TEMPLATE_ID);
      if (decoder.isPresent()) {
          return decoder.get().apply(event.getContractId(), event.getArguments();
      }
      
      // AFTER
      Optional<Function<CreatedEvent, Contract>> decoder = MyDecoderUtility.getDecoder(MyTemplate.TEMPLATE_ID);
      if (decoder.isPresent()) {
          return decoder.get().apply(event);
      }
      

Scala Bindings

  • BREAKING You can now access the agreement text of a contract with the new field Contract#agreementText: Option[String].

    How to migrate:

    • If you are pattern matching on com.digitalasset.ledger.client.binding.Contract, you need to add a match clause for the added field.
    • If you are constructing com.digitalasset.ledger.client.binding.Contract values, for example for tests, you need to add a constructor parameter for the agreement text.
  • CreateAndExercise support via createAnd method, e.g. MyTemplate(owner, someText).createAnd.exerciseAccept(controller, 42).
    See issue #1092 for more information.

Ledger

  • Renamed --jdbcurl to --sql-backend-jdbcurl. Left --jdbcurl in place for backwards compat.
  • Fixed issue when loading scenarios making use of pass into the sandbox, see #1079.
  • Fixed issue when loading scenarios that involve contract divulgence, see
    #1166.
  • Contract visibility is now properly checked when looking up contracts in the SQL backend, see
    #784.
  • The sandbox now exposes the agreement text of contracts in :ref:CreatedEvents <com.digitalasset.ledger.api.v1.CreatedEvent>. See #1110

Navigator

  • Non-empty agreement texts are now shown on the contract page above the section Contract details, see #1110

SQL Extractor

  • BREAKING In JSON content, dates and timestamps are formatted like
    "2020-02-22" and "2020-02-22T12:13:14Z" rather than UNIX epoch offsets like
    18314 or 1582373594000000. See #1174 for more details.

0.12.17 - 2019-05-13

  • Making transaction lookups performant so we can handle such requests for large ledgers as well

  • Sandbox: Transactions with a record time that is after the maximum record time (as provided in the original command) are now properly rejected instead of committed to the ledger.

    See issue #987 for details.

  • SDK: The Windows installer no longer requires elevated privileges.

    To try it out, download the windows exe installer below. The Windows SDK uses the new daml command-line which will soon also
    become the default on Linux and MacOS.

    Documentation is still in progress, but you can see the Migration guide if you have previously used the DAML SDK on Linux or OSX.
