Parity-Ethereum v2.1.3 (2018-10-16)

Parity-Ethereum 2.1.3-stable is a release that fixes a consensus issue with the recent Constantinople release. Upgrading is mandatory whatever network you are connected to that plans enabling EIP-1283, e.g., Ropsten, Kovan, Ethereum.

The full list of included changes:

  • Beta release 2.1.3 backports (#9749)
    • Parity-version: mark 2.1.3 beta as critical
    • Use signed 256-bit integer for sstore gas refund substate (#9746)
    • Add --force to cargo audit install script (#9735)
    • Heads ref not present for branches beta and stable (#9741)
    • Aura: fix panic on extra_info with unsealed block (#9755)

Parity-Ethereum v2.1.2 (2018-10-12)

Parity-Ethereum 2.1.2-beta is a release that introduces Constantinople to the Ethereum client. Upgrading is strongly recommended.

europe-1803495_1280

The following hardforks are supported by this release:

  • Ropsten testnet block 4_230_000 on October 14, 2018 (Constantinople)
  • POA core mainnet block 5_329_160 on October 22, 2018 (CORE HF 2)
  • Kovan testnet block 9_200_000 on October 25, 2018 (Constantinople, KIP-{4,6})

Running one of these networks, an upgrade to 2.0.7 or 2.1.2 is mandatory. More details can be found in Changelog below.

Please note, the following deprecations in our distribution of binaries:

  • arm* targets are no longer served by parity, please consider (cross-)compiling from source yourself.
  • i*86 targets are no longer served by parity, please consider upgrading your operating system.
  • Snapcraft is no longer maintained. please use binaries directly or your distro's repositories.

Parity-Ethereum v2.1.1 (2018-09-20)

Parity-Ethereum 2.1.1-beta is a release that does not improve performance and stability; no changes were made.

The full list of included changes:

  • Backports for 2.1.1 beta (#9599)
    • Parity: bump version to 2.1.1 beta
    • Ci: fix regex roll_eyes
    • Docs(rpc): annotate tag with the provided message

Parity-Ethereum v2.1.0 (2018-09-19)

Parity-Ethereum 2.1.0-beta is released! Look at this!

Important notices:

  • This release moves the 2.1 track of Parity-Ethereum to beta.
  • This release contains a low-severity issue with the web-sockets ports. #9545
  • This release resolves a potential network fragmentation issue. #9526
  • With this release, all versions of Parity Ethereum 1.x prior to 2.0 reached end of life.
  • Users are urged to upgrade to 2.0.5-stable or 2.1.0-beta.

Further changes worth highlighting:

  • Generalized blockReward and difficultyBombDelays config (#9480): This removes eip649* parameters from chain specs and allows blockReward to accept multi. Please review your chain-specs!
  • Implement EIP234 block_hash for eth_getLogs (#9256): If block_hash and from_block/to_block present, return error. This also changes eth_getLogs to return error if any of block_hash/from_block/to_block cannot be found.
  • The default gas_floor_target was increased to 8_000_000, the default gas_cap to 10_000_000.
  • Light clients provide the actual account for eth_coinbase RPC (#9383). Note, this behavior is different from the full client where we return the 0x0 address if no accounts are found!
  • Light servers give free credits for reserved peers (#9448): When connecting to a reserved peers in light client, assign free credits to them. This fixes the scenario where a home server is running a full node, and another light client connects to the full node as a reserved peer.
  • Multi-threaded snapshot creation (#9239): to speed up the generation of snapshots on disk, this can be parallelized now. By default N/2 CPU cores are being used. Use --snapshot-threads flag to customize the number of threads.
  • Remove all dapp permissions related settings (#9120). This completely removes dapp permission settings from AccountProvider and JSON-RPC: In JSON-RPC, all available accounts are returned, regardless of the origin; previously we return accounts based on dapps policy. It's not possible to set a "default account" (as for dapps) any more; this is now always the first account in the available account list.
  • Remove unused --tx_queue_gas parameter (#9153). Please use parity --help to learn about available transaction queue strategies.

    • The current behavior is to display the information when informant checks if block is major version.
    • This change a bit the informant behavior, but not on most cases.
    • To remember where and how this kind of deadlock are likely to happen (not seen with Parkinglot deadlock detection because it uses std condvar), I am adding a description of the deadlock.
    • Also, for the reviewers there may be better solution than modifying the informant.

    • This adds block reward contract config to ethash. A new config blockRewardContractCode is also added to both Aura and ethash. When specified, it will execute the code directly and overrides any blockRewardContractAddress config. Having this blockRewardContractCode config allows chains to deploy hard fork by simply replacing the current config value, without the need from us to support any multi block reward scheme.

      • Prior to this fix the pubsub process did send a query for each new block header (and for each subs: there is something to optimize here) by setting from and to of the filter at this block number; but there was a bug in the code that fetch logs : it was non inclusive for its start bound, meaning that with start bound = end bound we never query any block (and attached logs).

  • Propagate transactions for next 4 blocks. (#9265)
    • Closes #9255
    • This PR also removes the limit of max 64 transactions per packet, currently we only attempt to prevent the packet size to go over 8MB. This will only be the case for super-large transactions or high-block-gas-limit chains. Patching this is important only for chains that have blocks that can fit more than 4k transactions (over 86M block gas limit) For mainnet, we should actually see a tiny bit faster propagation since instead of computing 4k pending set, we only need 4 * 8M / 21k = 1523 transactions. Running some tests on dekompile node right now, to check how it performs in the wild.

  • Multiple improvements to discovery ping handling (#8771)
    • Discovery: Only add nodes to routing table after receiving pong.
      • Previously the discovery algorithm would add nodes to the routing table before confirming that the endpoint is participating in the protocol. This now tracks in-flight pings and adds to the routing table only after receiving a response.
    • Discovery: Refactor packet creation into its own function.
      • This function is useful inside unit tests.
    • Discovery: Additional testing for new add_node behavior.
    • Discovery: Track expiration of pings to non-yet-in-bucket nodes.
      • Now that we may ping nodes before adding to a k-bucket, the timeout tracking must be separate from BucketEntry.
    • Discovery: Verify echo hash on pong packets.
      • Stores packet hash with in-flight requests and matches with pong response.
    • Discovery: Track timeouts on FIND_NODE requests.
    • Discovery: Retry failed pings with exponential backoff.
      • Udp packets may get dropped, so instead of immediately booting nodes that fail to respond to a ping, retry 4 times with exponential backoff.
    • !fixup Use slice instead of Vec for request_backoff.
  • Add separate database directory for light client (#8927) (#9064)
    • Add seperate default DB path for light client (#8927)
    • Improve readability
