@holgerd77 holgerd77 released this Oct 4, 2019

This is the first Ethereum tests release with broader Istanbul support, see the "Istanbul support" section for a list with relevant PRs.

This release also comes with some structural changes to the test folder layout, the most important ones being the introduction of a new separate LegacyTests test suite for state tests up to Constantinople, a new sub folder structure for BlockchainTests and a new separate suite GeneralStateTests/stTimeConsuming/ for time consuming tests. For further details please have a look at the "Test Format Changes" section.
