Release Notes

This is the third major update of Lightning Terminal (LiT)!

This release packages LND v0.11.1-beta, Loop v0.11.0-beta, Pool v0.3.2-alpha, and Faraday v0.2.2-alpha.

Installation and configuration instructions can be found in the README.

Integration of the Lightning Pool trader daemon

With this release we integrate the Lightning Pool trader daemon to be run alongside Loop, Faraday and the UI.

There is no GUI functionality for Pool available yet (though this is being worked on) but if you're already running LiT then upgrading to this version is the
easiest way to get Pool running as no additional configuration is needed to start trading channel leases!

Verifying the Release

In order to verify the release, you'll need to have gpg or gpg2 installed on your system. Once you've obtained a copy (and hopefully verified that as well), you'll first need to import guggero's key from keybase:

curl https://keybase.io/guggero/pgp_keys.asc | gpg --import

Once you have his PGP key you can verify the release (assuming manifest-v0.3.0-alpha.txt.asc is in the current directory) with:

gpg --verify manifest-v0.3.0-alpha.txt.asc

You should see the following if the verification was successful:

gpg: Signature made Mi 29 Jul 2020 14:59:19 CEST
gpg:                using RSA key 6E01EEC9656903B0542B8F1003DB6322267C373B
gpg: Good signature from "Oliver Gugger <gugger@gmail.com>" [ultimate]

That will verify the signature on the main manifest page which ensures integrity and authenticity of the binaries you've downloaded locally. Next, depending on your operating system you should then re-calculate the sha256 sum of the binary, and compare that with the following hashes:

cat manifest-v0.3.0-alpha.txt

One can use the shasum -a 256 <file name here> tool in order to re-compute the sha256 hash of the target binary for your operating system. The produced hash should be compared with the hashes listed above and they should match exactly.

Finally, you can also verify the tag itself with the following command:

git verify-tag v0.3.0-alpha

Verifying the Release Timestamp

From this new version onwards we'll also now timestamp the manifest file with OpenTimeStamps along with its signature. A new file is now included along with the rest of our release artifacts: manifest-v0.3.0-alpha.txt.asc.ots.

Assuming you have the opentimestamps client installed locally, the timestamps can be verified with the following command:

ots verify manifest-v0.3.0-alpha.txt.asc.ots

These timestamps should give users confidence in the integrity of this release even after the key that signed the release expires.
