Changelog for external API

The API uses semantic versioning.

TL;DR: Given a version number MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH, increment the:

  • MAJOR version when you make incompatible API changes,
  • MINOR version when you add functionality in a backwards-compatible manner, and
  • PATCH version when you make backwards-compatible bug fixes.

Additional labels for pre-release and build metadata are available as extensions to the MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH format.


  • New was changed to deliver only an address, not the full Account data
  • Export was moved from External API to the UI Server API


  • The external account_EcRecover-method was reimplemented.
  • The external method account_sign(address, data) was replaced with account_signData(contentType, address, data). The addition of contentType makes it possible to use the method for different types of objects, such as:
    • signing data with an intended validator (not yet implemented)
    • signing clique headers,
    • signing plain personal messages,
  • The external method account_signTypedData implements EIP-712 and makes it possible to sign typed data.


  • The external account_Ecrecover-method was removed.
  • The external account_Import-method was removed.


  • The external account_List-method was changed to not expose url, which contained info about the local filesystem. It now returns only a list of addresses.


  • Commit 73abaf04b1372fa4c43201fb1b8019fe6b0a6f8d, move from into transaction object in signTransaction. This makes the accounts_signTransaction identical to the old eth_signTransaction.


Initial release.
