Ipfs 0.4.17 is a quick release to fix a major performance regression in bitswap (mostly affecting go-ipfs -> js-ipfs transfers). However, while motivated by this fix, this release contains a few other goodies that will excite some users.

The headline feature in this release is urlstore support. Urlstore is a generalization of the filestore backend that can fetch file blocks from remote URLs on-demand instead of storing them in the local datastore.

Additionally, we've added support for extracting inline blocks from CIDs (blocks inlined into CIDs using the identity hash function). However, go-ipfs won't yet create such CIDs so you're unlikely to see any in the wild.




General refactorings and internal bug fixes:


  • /ipfs/QmNuyz8s1MZHPBp3nu4hnAXJyXbyZXdVkJfKu38JiSv7KC/go-ipfs/v0.4.17/
  • dist.ipfs.io

You can also download them from GitHub (but we recommend IPFS, obviously).
