21.1.0

Important note: this release contains an outdated version of the Berlin network upgrade, which was changed on March 5, 2021 (link). If you are using Besu on public Ethereum networks, you must upgrade to 21.1.2.

21.1.0 Features

Features added between 20.10.0 to 21.1.0 include:

  • Berlin Network Upgrade: this release contains the activation blocks for Berlin across all supported testnets and the Ethereum mainnet. They are:
    • Ropsten 9_812_189 (10 Mar 2021)
    • Goerli 4_460_644 (17 Mar 2021)

    • Ethereum 12_244_000 (14 Apr 2021)
  • Besu Launcher: Besu now has support for the Quorum Mainnet Launcher which makes it easy for users to configure and launch Besu on the Ethereum mainnet.
  • Bonsai Tries: A new database format which reduces storage requirements and improves performance for access to recent state. Note: only full sync is currently supported.
  • Miner Data JSON-RPC: The eth_getMinerDataByBlockHash and eth_getMinerDataByBlockNumber endpoints return miner rewards and coinbase address for a given block.
  • EIP-1898 support: The EIP adds blockHash to JSON-RPC methods which accept a default block parameter.

Early Access Features

  • Bonsai Tries: A new database format which reduces storage requirements and improves performance for access to recent state. Note: only full sync is currently supported.
  • QBFT: A new consensus algorithm to support interoperability with other Enterprise Ethereum Alliance compatible clients.

21.1.0 Breaking Changes

  • --skip-pow-validation-enabled is now an error with block import --format JSON. This is because the JSON format doesn't include the nonce so the proof of work must be calculated.
  • eth_call will not return a JSON-RPC result if the call fails, but will return an error instead. If it was for a revert the revert reason will be included.
  • eth_call will not fail for account balance issues by default. An parameter "strict": true can be added to the call parameters (with to and from) to enforce balance checks.

Additions and Improvements

  • Added besu_transaction_pool_transactions to the reported metrics, counting the mempool size #1869
  • Added activation blocks for Berlin Network Upgrade #1929

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed representation of access list for access list transactions in JSON-RPC results.

21.1.0-RC2

Additions and Improvements

  • Support for the Berlin Network Upgrade, although the block number must be set manually with --override-genesis-config=berlinBlock=<blocknumber>. This is because the block numbers haven't been determined yet. The next release will include the number in the genesis file so it will support Berlin with no intervention. #1898

21.1.0-RC1

  • --skip-pow-validation-enabled is now an error with block import --format JSON. This is because the JSON format doesn't include the nonce so the proof of work must be calculated. #1815
  • Added a new CLI option --Xlauncher to start a mainnet launcher. It will help to configure Besu easily.
  • Return the revert reason from eth_call JSON-RPC api calls when the contract causes a revert. #1829
  • Added chainId, publicKey, and raw to JSON-RPC api calls returning detailed transaction results. #1835

Bug Fixes

  • Ethereum classic heights will no longer be reported in mainnet metrics. Issue #1751 Fix #1820

20.10.1

Additions and Improvements

  • --random-peer-priority-enabled flag added. Allows for incoming connections to be prioritized randomly. This will prevent (typically small, stable) networks from forming impenetrable peer cliques. #1440
  • miner_changeTargetGasLimit RPC added. If a target gas limit is set, allows the node operator to change it at runtime.
  • Hide deprecated --host-whitelist option. #1444
  • Prioritize high gas prices during mining. Previously we ordered only by the order in which the transactions were received. This will increase expected profit when mining. #1449
  • Added support for the updated smart contract-based node permissioning EEA interface. #1435 and #1496
  • Added EvmTool binary to the distribution. EvmTool is a CLI that can execute EVM bytecode and execute ethereum state tests. #1465
  • Updated the libraries for secp256k1 and AltBN series precompiles. These updates provide significant performance improvements to those areas. #1499
  • Provide MegaGas/second measurements in the log when doing a full block import, such as the catch up phase of a fast sync. #1512
  • Added new endpoints to get miner data, eth_getMinerDataByBlockHash and eth_getMinerDataByBlockNumber. #1538
  • Added direct support for OpenTelemetry metrics #1492
  • Added support for qip714block config parameter in genesis file, paving the way towards permissioning interoperability between Besu and GoQuorum. #1545
  • Added new CLI option --compatibility-eth64-forkid-enabled. #1542

Bug Fixes

  • Fix a bug on eth_estimateGas which returned Internal error instead of Execution reverted in case of reverted transaction. #1478
  • Fixed a bug where Local Account Permissioning was being incorrectly enforced on block import/validation. #1510
  • Fixed invalid enode URL when discovery is disabled #1521
  • Removed duplicate files from zip and tar.gz distributions. #1566
  • Add a more rational value to eth_gasPrice, based on a configurable percentile of prior block's transactions (default: median of last 100 blocks). #1563

20.10.0

Release format

Hyperledger Besu is moving its versioning scheme to CalVer starting with the 20.10.0 (formerly 1.6.0) release. More information about the specific version of CalVer Besu is using can be found on the wiki.

20.10 Breaking Changes

When upgrading to 20.10, ensure you've taken into account the following breaking changes.

JSON-RPC HTTP Error Codes For Valid Calls (#1426)

Prior versions of Besu would set the HTTP Status 400 Bad Request for JSON-RPC requests that completed in an error, regardless of the kind of error. These responses could include a complete JSON-RPC response with an error field.

In Besu version 20.10, properly formatted requests that have valid parameters (count and content) will return a HTTP Status 200 OK, with an error field if an error occurred. For example, requesting an account that does not exist in the chain, or a block by hash that Besu does not have, will now return HTTP 200 OK responses. Unparsable requests, improperly formatted requests, or requests with invalid parameters will continue to return HTTP 400 Bad Request.

Users of Web3J should note that many calls will now return a result with the error field containing the message whereas before a call would throw an exception with the error message as the exception message.

20.10.0 Additions and Improvements

  • Added support for ECIP-1099 / Classic Thanos Fork: Calibrate Epoch Duration. #1421 #1441 #1462
  • Added the Open Telemetry Java agent to report traces to a remote backend. Added an example to showcase the trace reporting capabilities.
  • Added EvmTool binary to the distribution. EvmTool is a CLI that can execute EVM bytecode and execute ethereum state tests. Documentation for it is available here. #1465
  • Added support for the upcoming YOLOv2 ephemeral testnet and removed the flag for the deprecated YOLOv1 ephemeral testnet. #1386
  • Added debug_standardTraceBlockToFile JSON-RPC API. This API accepts a block hash and will replay the block. It returns a list of files containing the result of the trace (one file per transaction). #1392
  • Added debug_standardTraceBadBlockToFile JSON-RPC API. This API is similar to debug_standardTraceBlockToFile, but can be used to obtain info about a block which has been rejected as invalid. #1403
  • Added support for EIP-2929 to YOLOv2. #1387
  • Added --start-block and --end-block to the blocks import subcommand #1399
  • Added support for multi-tenancy when using the early access feature of onchain privacy group management
  • [Reverted] Fixed memory leak in eth/65 subprotocol behavior. It is now enabled by default. #1420, #1348, #1321

Bug Fixes

Previously identified known issues

Breaking Change to Onchain Privacy Group Management

This early access feature was changed in a way that makes onchain privacy groups created with previous versions no longer usable.

To enhance control over permissions on the privacy group management contract:

  • The enclave key was removed as the first parameter for addParticipant and removeParticipant.
  • The owner of the privacy group management contract is the signer of the private transaction that creates the privacy group. In the default onchain privacy group management contract implementation, only the owner can add and remove participants, and upgrade the management contract.

The onchain privacy support in the current version of the web3js-eea library (v0.9) will not be compatible with Besu v1.5.3. We are actively working on an upgrade to webj3-eea that will support these changes.

1.5.2

Additions and Improvements

  • Experimental offline backup and restore has been added via the operator x-backup-state and operator x-restore-state CLI commands. Data formats will be fluid for as long as the x- prefix is present in the CLI so it is advised not to rely on these backups for disaster recovery. #1235
  • Experimental ethstats support added via the Xethstats and Xethstats-contact CLI commands. #1239
  • Peers added via the JSON-RPC admin_addPeer and admin_removePeer will be shared or no longer shared via discovery respectively. Previously they were not shared. #1177 contributed by br0tchain.
  • New Docker Images (see below). #1277
  • Reworked static peer discovery handling. #1292

New Java VMs in Docker Image

  • New docker images are being generated to use the latest version of OpenJDK (currently 14.0.1) with the tag suffix of -openjdk-latest, for example 1.5.2-openjdk-latest.
  • New docker images are being generated to use GraalVM with the tag suffix of -graalvm, for example 1.5.2-graalvm.
  • The existing images based on Java 11 are also being tagged with the suffix -openjdk-11, for example 1.5.2-openjdk-11, as well as 1.5.2.

The intent is that the major Java VM version or Java VM type shipped with the default docker images (latest, 1.5.x, etc.) may be changed during future quarterly releases but will remain consistent within quarterly releases.

Bug Fixes

  • Offchain permissioning - fixed bug where sync status check prevented peering if static nodes configured. #1252

  • GraphQL queries of miner in IBFT networks will no longer return an error. PR #1282 issue #1272.

1.5 Breaking changes

When upgrading to 1.5, ensure you've taken into account the following breaking changes.

Docker users with volume mounts

To maintain best security practices, we're changing the user:group on the Docker container to besu.

What this means for you:

  • If you are running Besu as a binary, there is no impact.
  • If you are running Besu as a Docker container and have a volume mount for data, ensure that the permissions on the directory allow other users and groups to r/w. Ideally this should be set to besu:besu as the owner.

Note that the besu user only exists within the container not outside it. The same user ID may match a different user outside the image.

If you’re mounting local folders, it is best to set the user via the Docker —user argument. Use the UID because the username may not exist inside the docker container. Ensure the directory being mounted is owned by that user.

Remove Manual NAT method

The NAT manager MANUAL method has been removed. If you have been using the MANUAL method, use the NONE method instead. The behavior of the NONE method is the same as the previously supported MANUAL methods.

Privacy users

Besu minor version upgrades require upgrading Orion to the latest minor version. That is, for Besu <> Orion node pairs, when upgrading Besu to v1.5, it is required that Orion is upgraded to v1.6. Older versions of Orion will no longer work with Besu v1.5.

1.5 Features

Features added between from 1.4 to 1.5 include:

  • Mining Support Besu supports eth_hashrate and eth_submitHashrate to obtain the hashrate when we mine with a GPU mining worker.
  • Tracing The Tracing API is no longer an Early Access feature and now has full support for trace_replayBlockTransactions, trace_Block and trace_transaction.
  • Plugin API Block Events BlockAdded and BlockReorg are now exposed via the Plugin API.
  • Filters and subscriptions for private contracts.
  • SecurityModule Plugin API This allows use of a different security module as a plugin to provide cryptographic function that can be used by NodeKey (such as sign, ECDHKeyAgreement etc.).
  • Onchain privacy groups with add and remove members. This is an early access feature. Early access features are not recommended for production networks and may have unstable interfaces.

1.5 Additions and Improvements

  • Public Networks Default to Fast Sync: The default sync mode for named permissionless networks, such as the Ethereum mainnet and testnets, is now FAST.
    • The default is unchanged for private networks. That is, the sync mode defaults to FULL for private networks.
    • Use the --sync-mode command line option to change the sync mode. #384
  • Proper Mining Support: Added full support for eth_hashrate and eth_submitHashrate. It is now possible to have the hashrate when we mine with a GPU mining worker #1063
  • Performance Improvements: The addition of native libraries (#775) and changes to data structures in the EVM (#1089) have improved Besu sync and EVM execution times.
  • Tracing API Improvements: The Tracing API is no longer an Early Access feature and now has full support for trace_replayBlockTransactions, trace_Block and trace_transaction.
  • New Plugin API Block Events: BlockAdded and BlockReorg are now exposed via the Plugin API #637.
  • Added experimental CLI option --Xnat-kube-pod-name to specify the name of the loadbalancer used by the Kubernetes nat manager #1078
  • Local permissioning TOML config now supports additional keys (nodes-allowlist and accounts-allowlist). Support for nodes-whitelist and accounts-whitelist will be removed in a future release.
  • Add missing mixHash field for eth_getBlockBy* JSON RPC endpoints. #1098
  • Besu now has a strict check on private transactions to ensure the privateFrom in the transaction matches the sender Orion key that has distributed the payload. Besu 1.5+ requires Orion 1.6+ to work. #357

Bug fixes

No bug fixes with user impact in this release.

Known Issues

Known issues are open issues categorized as Very High or High impact.

New known issues

  • K8S permissioning uses of Service IPs rather than pod IPs which can fail. #1190 Workaround - Do not use permissioning on K8S.

  • Restart caused by insufficient memory can cause inconsistent private state. #1110 Workaround - Ensure you allocate enough memory for the Java Runtime Environment that the node does not run out of memory.

Bug Fixes

  • Flag added to toggle eth/65 off by default. eth/65 will remain toggled off by default until a fix is completed for the eth/65 known issue. #741
  • Resolve crashing NAT detectors on GKE. #731 fixes #507. Besu-Kubernetes Readme updated to reflect changes.
  • Deal with quick service start failures #714 fixes #662

Known Issues

Known issues are open issues categorized as Very High or High impact.

New known issues

  • Intrinsic gas exceeds gas limit returned when calling delete mapping[addr] or mapping[addr] = 0 #696

Calling delete and set to 0 Solidity mapping in Solidity fail.

Previously identified known issues

1.4.3

Issues identified with 1.4.3 release

The eth/65 change is not backwards compatible. This has the following impact:

  • In a private network, nodes using the 1.4.3 client cannot interact with nodes using 1.4.2 or earlier clients.
  • On mainnet, synchronizing eventually stalls.

Workaround -> revert to v1.4.2.

A fix is currently being tested.

Critical Issue for Privacy Users

A critical issue for privacy users with private transactions created using Hyperledger Besu v1.3.4 or earlier has been identified. If you have a network with private transaction created using v1.3.4 or earlier, please read the following and take the appropriate steps: https://wiki.hyperledger.org/display/BESU/Critical+Issue+for+Privacy+Users

Additions and Improvements

  • Added eth/65 support. #608
  • Added block added and block reorg events. Added revert reason to block added transactions. #637

Deprecated

  • Private Transaction hash field and getHash() method have been deprecated. They will be removed in 1.5.0 release. #639

Known Issues

Fast sync when running Besu on cloud providers

A known RocksDB issue causes fast sync to fail when running Besu on certain cloud providers. The following error is displayed repeatedly:

...
EthScheduler-Services-1 (importBlock) | ERROR | PipelineChainDownloader | Chain download failed. Restarting after short delay.
java.util.concurrent.CompletionException: org.hyperledger.besu.plugin.services.exception.StorageException: org.rocksdb.RocksDBException: block checksum mismatch:
....

This behaviour has been seen on AWS and Digital Ocean.

Workaround -> On AWS, a full restart of the AWS VM is required to restart the fast sync.

Fast sync is not currently supported on Digital Ocean. We are investigating options to add support for fast sync on Digital Ocean.

Error full syncing with pruning

  • Error syncing with mainnet on Besu 1.3.7 node - MerkleTrieException #580 The associated error is Unable to load trie node value for hash and is caused by the combination of full sync and pruning.

Workarounds:

  1. Explicitly disable pruning using --pruning-enabled=false when using fast sync.
  2. If the MerkleTrieException occurs, delete the database and resync.

A fix for this issue is being actively worked on.

Fast sync reverting to full sync

In some cases of FastSyncException, fast sync reverts back to a full sync before having reached the pivot block. #683

Workaround -> To re-attempt fast syncing rather than continue full syncing, stop Besu, delete your database, and start again.

Bootnodes must be validators when using onchain permissioning

  • Onchain permissioning nodes can't peer when using a non-validator bootnode #528

Workaround -> When using onchain permissioning, ensure bootnodes are also validators.

1.4.2

Additions and Improvements

  • Added trace_block JSON RPC API #449
  • Added pulledStates and knownStates to the EthQL syncing query and eth_syncing JSON-RPC api #565

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed file parsing behaviour for privacy enclave keystore password file #554 (thanks to magooster)
  • Fixed known issue with being unable to re-add members to onchain privacy groups #471

Updated Early Access Features

  • Onchain privacy groups with add and remove members. Known issue resolved (see above).
  • TRACE API now includes trace_block, trace_replayBlockTransactions, and trace_transaction. Fixed some issues on the trace replay block transactions API #522.

Known Issues

Fast sync defaulting to full sync

  • When fast sync cannot find enough valid peers rapidly enough, Besu defaults to full sync.

Workarounds:

  1. To re-attempt fast syncing rather than continue full syncing, stop Besu, delete your database, and start again.
  2. When fast syncing, explicitly disable pruning using --pruning-enabled=false to reduce the likelihood of encountering the pruning bug.

A fix to remove the default to full sync is in progress is being actively worked on.

Error full syncing with pruning

  • Error syncing with mainnet on Besu 1.3.7 node - MerkleTrieException #BESU-160 The associated error is Unable to load trie node value for hash and is caused by the combination of full sync and pruning.

Workarounds:

  1. Explicitly disable pruning using --pruning-enabled=false when using fast sync.
  2. If the MerkleTrieException occurs, delete the database and resync.

A fix for this issue is being actively worked on.

Bootnodes must be validators when using onchain permissioning

  • Onchain permissioning nodes can't peer when using a non-validator bootnode #BESU-181

Workaround -> When using onchain permissioning, ensure bootnodes are also validators.

1.4.1

Additions and Improvements

  • Added priv_getCode #250. Gets the bytecode associated with a private address.
  • Added trace_transaction JSON RPC API #441
  • Removed -X unstable prefix for pruning options (--pruning-blocks-retained, --pruning-block-confirmations) #440

Workaround -> When using onchain permissioning, ensure bootnodes are also validators.

1.4.0

Private State Migration

Hyperledger Besu v1.4 implements a new data structure for private state storage that is not backwards compatible. A migration will be performed when starting v1.4 for the first time to reprocess existing private transactions and re-create the private state data in the v1.4 format.

If you have existing private transactions, see migration details.

Additions and Improvements

  • TLS support to secure client and server communication.

  • Multi-tenancy to enable multiple participants to use the same Besu and Orion node.

  • Plugin APIs to enable building of Java plugins to extend Hyperledger Besu.

  • Support for additional NAT methods.

  • Added priv_call which invokes a private contract function locally and does not change the private state.

  • Besu has moved from an internal Bytes library to the Apache Tuweni Bytes library. This includes using the library in the Plugins API interfaces. #295 and #215

Early Access Features

Early access features are available features that are not recommended for production networks and may have unstable interfaces.

  • Reorg compatible privacy to enable private transactions on networks using consensus mechanisms that fork.

  • Tracing API to obtain detailed information about transaction processing.

Bug Fixes

See RC and Beta sections below.

1.4.0 RC-2

Private State Migration

Hyperledger Besu v1.4 implements a new data structure for private state storage that is not backwards compatible. A migration will be performed when starting v1.4 for the first time to reprocess existing private transactions and re-create the private state data in the v1.4 format. If you have existing private transactions, see migration details.

1.4.0 RC-1

Additions and Improvements

  • Newtrace_replayBlockTransactions JSON-RPC API

This can be enabled using the --rpc-http-api TRACE CLI flag. There are some philosophical differences between Besu and other implementations that are outlined in trace_rpc_apis.

  • Ability to automatically detect Docker NAT settings from inside the conainter.

The default NAT method (AUTO) can detect this so no user intervention is required to enable this.

  • Added Multi-tenancy support which allows multiple participants to use the same Besu node for private transactions.

  • Added TLS support for communication with privacy enclave

Bug Fixes

  • Private transactions are now validated before sent to the enclave #356

Known Bugs

  • Error syncing with mainnet on Besu 1.3.7 node - MerkleTrieException #BESU-160

Workaround -> Don't enable pruning when syncing to mainnet.

  • Onchain permissioning nodes can't peer when using a non-validator bootnode #BESU-181

Workaround -> When using onchain permissioning, ensure bootnodes are also validators.

1.4 Beta 3

Additions and Improvements

  • CLI option to enable TLS client auth for JSON-RPC HTTP #340

Added CLI options to enable TLS client authentication and trusting client certificates:

--rpc-http-tls-client-auth-enabled - Enable TLS client authentication for the JSON-RPC HTTP service (default: false)
--rpc-http-tls-known-clients-file - Path to file containing client's certificate common name and fingerprint for client authentication.
--rpc-http-tls-ca-clients-enabled - Enable to accept clients certificate signed by a valid CA for client authentication (default: false)

If client-auth is enabled, user must either enable CA signed clients OR provide a known-clients file. An error is reported if both CA signed clients is disabled and known-clients file is not specified.

  • Stable Plugins APIs #346

The BesuEvents service and related data package have been marked as a stable plugin API.

Bug Fixes

  • Return missing signers from getSignerMetrics #343

Experimental Features

  • Experimental support for trace_replayBlockTransactions - multiple PRs

Added support for the trace_replayBlockTransactions JSON-RPC call. To enable this API add TRACE to the rpc-http-api options (for example, --rpc-http-api TRACE on the command line).

This is not a production ready API. There are known bugs relating to traced memory from calls and returns, and the gas calculation reported in the flat traces does not always match up with the correct gas calculated for consensus.

1.4 Beta 2

Additions and Improvements

  • Enable TLS for JSON-RPC HTTP Service #253

Exposes new command line parameters to enable TLS on Ethereum JSON-RPC HTTP interface to allow clients like EthSigner to connect via TLS: --rpc-http-tls-enabled=true (Optional - Only required if --rpc-http-enabled is set to true) Set to true to enable TLS. False by default. --rpc-http-tls-keystore-file="/path/to/cert.pfx" (Must be specified if TLS is enabled) Path to PKCS12 format key store which contains server's certificate and it's private key --rpc-http-tls-keystore-password-file="/path/to/cert.passwd" (Must be specified if TLS is enabled) Path to the text file containing password for unlocking key store. --rpc-http-tls-known-clients-file="/path/to/rpc_tls_clients.txt" (Optional) Path to a plain text file containing space separated client’s certificate’s common name and its sha-256 fingerprints when they are not signed by a known CA. The presence of this file (even empty) enables TLS client authentication. That is, the client presents the certificate to server on TLS handshake and server establishes that the client certificate is either signed by a proper/known CA. Otherwise, server trusts client certificate by reading the sha-256 fingerprint from known clients file specified above.

The format of the file is (as an example): localhost DF:65:B8:02:08:5E:91:82:0F:91:F5:1C:96:56:92:C4:1A:F6:C6:27:FD:6C:FC:31:F2:BB:90:17:22:59:5B:50

Bug Fixes

1.4 Beta 1

Additions and Improvements

  • Besu has moved from an internal Bytes library to the Apache Tuweni Bytes library. This includes using the library in the Plugins API interfaces. #295 and #215
  • Besu stops processing blocks if Orion is unavailable #253
  • Added priv_call #250. Invokes a private contract function locally and does not change the private state.
