v1.0.0

Master Build Status

Build Status

Special Notes

Upgrade to this release is required

Network Upgrade at block 3,000,000

This release includes a mandatory network upgrade at block 3,000,000 that implements a change to the Proof of Work (PoW) algorithm for the network to Chukwa v2 (1 Thread, 1MB memory, 4 iterations). Pools, nodes, and services are required to upgrade to this new PoW to continue mining blocks at block 3,000,000 as blocks mined with the previous version of Chukwa will be rejected.

Daemon API Changes

The daemon API has changed significantly in this version. The vast majority of the API calls have been removed, migrated, or otherwise adjusted such that all services using such API require that you perform updates to your packages. The API calls have moved to a most RESTful approach and the endpoint routes have changed. Please see https://meta.turtlecoin.dev/proposals/daemon-api/ for information on what the new API looks like and update your packages accordingly.

Note: Please be mindful when updating your packages that the property names in the returned responses including their name, case, structure, and/or data type may have changed.

Client / Wallet Upgrades are Mandatory

The API changes indicated in the daemon require that you use the latest version of the core wallet software. If you use a wallet other than wallet-api or zedwallet++ that wallet software must be updated to support the new API. As such using older wallet software with public node(s) that have upgraded to this release will fail until your wallet software is upgraded.

End of Life (EOL) and End of Support (EOS) Notice

Please note that v0.28.3 was the last release to contain turtle-service. This release no longer contains the turtle-service binaries or source code and thus is no longer supported. You must convert to wallet-api to continue working with the network as it is the only service to be upgraded in conjunction with numerous daemon API changes. If you have not converted your wallet(s) and or services over to Proton, zedwallet, or wallet-api you are encouraged to do so now. Should you experience any issues working with wallet-api, please make sure that you open an issue so that the issue may be resolved as quickly as possible.

Legacy Wallet Support Removed

Support for legacy wallets (ie. those created with simplewallet and/or turtle-service) has been removed from the project. We highly suggest that you upgrade your wallet(s) using a prior version of the core suite via wallet-api or zedwallet++ or recreate your wallets from the recovery mnemonic or keys using zedwallet or wallet-api.

As always, make sure you have backed up your keys as that is the only foolproof way to restore your wallet in the event of an issue.

v0.28.3

Master Build Status

Build Status

Special Notes

Upgrade to this release is highly recommended and upgrade to any 0.28.x release is mandatory for the majority of users

Pool and service operators should treat this as a mandatory upgrade to prevent possible issues with mined block acceptance.

End of Life (EOL) and End of Support (EOS) Notice

Please note that v0.28.x are the last releases to contain turtle-service. Releases after 0.v28.x will no longer contain the turtle-service binaries and the code will be removed. The next release will not contain turtle-service or any legacy WalletGreen dependencies. If you have not converted your wallet(s) and or services over to Proton, zedwallet, or wallet-api you are encouraged to do so soon. The next release will remove all legacy support for older wallets and the daemon API will be changed thus rendering turtle-service inoperable. Should you experience any issues working with wallet-api, please make sure that you open an issue so that the issue may be resolved as quickly as possible.

This also establishes the timeline for the End of Support (EOS) of turtle-service being the next release (v1.0.0). With the release of v1.0.0, turtle-service will no longer be supported or work with the core software.

As always, make sure you have backed up your keys as that is the only foolproof way to restore your wallet in the event of an issue.

v0.28.1

Master Build Status

Build Status

Special Notes

Upgrade to this release is mandatory

Network Upgrade at block 2,800,000

This release includes a mandatory network upgrade at block 2,800,000 that enforces a requirement that coinbase transactions (miner rewards) be provably claimed by a miner (or pool). This is a consensus level requirement that helps to reinforce the security of the network.

End of Life (EOL) and End of Support (EOS) Notice

Please note that v0.28.x are the last release(s) to contain turtle-service. Releases after 0.v28.x will no longer contain the turtle-service binaries and the code will be removed. The next release will not contain turtle-service or any legacy WalletGreen dependencies. If you have not converted your wallet(s) and or services over to Proton, zedwallet, or wallet-api you are encouraged to do so soon. The next release will remove all legacy support for older wallets and the daemon API will be changed thus rendering turtle-service inoperable.

v0.22.0

Master Build Status

Build Status

Special Notes

Upgrade to this release is required

Network Upgrade at block 2,200,000

This release contains a network consensus update at block 2,200,000 that activates the following consensus rules:

  • A single transaction must not contain more than 90 outputs
  • Minimum network transaction fees are now calculated via a fee-per-byte method.
    • Transactions with a fee of less than the minimum fee-per-byte amount will be rejected by the network.
    • Fusion transactions remain free
    • See #967 for more details.

The change to fee-per byte takes effect immediately in zedwallet, wallet-api, and turtle-service in this release. The software will not wait for the network upgrade before setting the minimum transaction fee via fee-per-byte.

End of Support (EOS) Notice

Legacy zedwallet is no longer supported. zedwallet++ has officially replaced legacy zedwallet in all builds from here on out. If you're having problems with legacy zedwallet, you're on your own.

End of Life (EOL) Notice

Please note that v0.28.0 will be the last release to contain turtle-service. Releases after 0.v28.0 will no longer contain the turtle-service binaries and the code will be removed. In preparation for this EOL, please work to implement wallet-api in your application(s), perform testing, and report any issues that you encounter so that they may be resolved as quickly as possible.

Note: The End of Support (EOS) date for turtle-service has not been set at this time. Please pay attention to release notes for further information regarding turtle-service EOS.

Reminder

Wallets created and/or managed by zedwallet are no longer compatiable with with turtle-service. To be very clear, turtle-service can only open wallets created with turtle-service as of this release.

TurtleCoind API Changes

A number of API changes have been made as a result of the RPC rewrite in #903. The /getinfo, /getheight, /getpeers, and /getfee calls have been removed in lieu of /info, /height, /peers, and /fee. In addition, quite a few json_rpc calls were removed as they were deemed redundant during the rewrite. All of the TurtleCoind API calls remaining are listed below. All other API methods have been removed.

  • /info
  • /fee
  • /height
  • /peers
  • /json_rpc
    • getblocktemplate
    • submitblock
    • getblockcount
    • getlastblockheader
    • getblockheaderbyhash
    • getblockheaderbyheight
    • f_blocks_list_json
    • f_block_json
    • f_transaction_json
    • f_on_transactions_pool_json
  • /sendrawtransaction
  • /getrandom_outs
  • /getwalletsyncdata
  • /get_global_indexes_for_range
  • /queryblockslite
  • /get_transactions_status
  • /get_pool_changes_lite
  • /queryblocksdetailed
  • /get_o_indexes
  • /getrawblocks

Wallet Software & Node Interaction

Due to fixing the HTTP verbs (GET vs POST) as part of the rewrite, it is unlikely that older versions of wallet software will properly sync with Daemon’s running v0.22.0+. Please make sure you are always using the latest version of your favorite wallet software.

v0.20.0

Build Status Build status

Special Notes

Please note, the build directions and project dependencies have changed

Upgrade to this release is required

Network Upgrade at block 2,000,000

This release contains a network consensus update at block 2,000,000 which will not permit an output of a transaction to exceed 1/4th of the total supply (250,000,000,000.00 TRTL). Due to the static mixin size requirement of 3 mixins and thus a ring size of 4, it is impossible to have enough mixins available to spend an output larger than 250 billion TRTL.

End of Life (EOL) Notice

This release is last release to contain legacy zedwallet. Any releases of the core suite after v0.20.0 will replace the legacy zedwallet with zedwallet++ and all legacy zedwallet code will be removed. Please make sure that you have backed up your keys from legacy wallets, upgraded them to the new format by using zedwallet-beta, wallet-api, or wallet-upgrader and that you can access your wallets using the above tools.

Clarification: turtle-service is not being deprecated as part of this process. It will still be available until further notice specifically regarding that binary.

End of Support (EOS) Notice

Support will be provided for legacy zedwallet through December 31, 2019. After that date, legacy zedwallet will no longer be supported.

Full Node Resync May Be Required

This release contains 2 fixes to the way that data is serialized/deserialzed. The fixes are necessary for the proper operation of TurtleCoind; however, the fix may reveal data corruption in your local copy of the blockchain (both the database and underlying local cache). Unfortunately, the only way to resolve the data corruption is purge the corrupted data and resync from that point or perform a full resync.

If you encounter a message stating that your local blockchain cache is corrupted, please try the directions given (be patient, it may take a while). Or, you may resync your node from scratch.

Checkpoints

To help speed up your sync, you may use checkpoints to help speed things up.

Bootstrap

Alternatively, you may also use a bootstrap to import the blockchain using a copy of the local cache.

Link Files Included Snapshot Height Size CDN
trtl.se blocks.bin, blockindexes.bin, & DB folder 1,814,058 55.5GB No
TurtlePay Bootstrap blocks.bin & blockindexes.bin 1,940,000 21.3GB Yes

Note: Bootstraps containing the DB folder may require the deletion of the DB folder before use.

TurtleCoind Default Settings Change

The default database write buffer size, read buffer size, maximum open files, and background threads have decreased to help with daemon stability. The decreases are as follows:

  • Write Buffer Size: 1GB -> 256MB
  • Read Buffer Size: 1GB -> 128MB
  • Maximum Open Files: 500 -> 125
  • Background Threads: 10 -> 4

These values may need adjusted based on your system resources, configured limits, etc. Please review the TurtleCoind --help for changing these values at runtime. We recommend that pool and other service operators run with higher values for the best performance.

Release Notes

General Updates

  • Removed unused code and other general code cleanup
  • Removed some Boost dependencies throughout the codebase
  • Resolved OSX compilation errors in some environments
  • Resolved a bug when deserializing data in some edge cases
  • Added additional community seed nodes:
  • Scheduled network upgrade at block 2,000,000 that will no longer permit transaction outputs in excess of 250,000,000,000.00 TRTL to mitigate creating unmixable outputs
    • 250,000,000,000 * 4 (current ring size) is equal to the total supply
  • Wallets will refrain from creating outputs larger than 1,000,000,000.00 TRTL to mitigate the risk of creating unmixable outputs.
    • This value is 1/1000th of the total supply
  • Enabled GitHub Actions to try out GH's new CI tools -- @rashedmyt
  • Now builds consistently with boost >= 1.70

v0.18.1

Build Status Build status

Special Notes

This patch release reverts the difficulty reset. Mining Nodes may need to --rewind-to-height 1799999 to recover from the first pass of the upgrade that failed

Please note, the build directions and project dependencies have changed

Upgrade to this release is required

Network Upgrade at Block 1,800,000

The v0.18.0 release of the core TurtleCoin suite activates a network upgrade at block 1,800,000 that implements block major version 6. Block major version 6 changes the Proof-of-Work (PoW) algorithm to Chukwa. Please be sure to update your miners before the network upgrades to continue mining. We're working on the final steps to make sure the algorithm is supported in the most common mining packages and will post news in the official TurtleCoin blog as we are made aware of additional miners supporting the algorithm. In addition to the blog, we urge users to join the TurtleCoin Discord and type *news to be added to the announcements list to be notififed of the latest TurtleCoin updates.

Release Notes

General Updates

  • Reverted difficulty reset for block 1,800,000
  • Resolved LZ4 linking error on some platforms

Known Mining Software With Chukwa Support

Please see the mining software's documentation for how to activate the proper algorithm for mining TurtleCoin after the network ugprade.

Mining Software Not Listed

If your preferred mining software is not listed, please contact the developer/maintainer of the package and let them know you want TurtleCoin support!

Known Mining Pool Software With Chukwa Support (For Pool Operators)

The changes for supporting Chukwa in most pool software packages is minimal if the pool uses the TurtleCoin-Multi-Hashing Node.js module. However, if you need assistance adding support to your pool, please feel free to ask for assistance in the TurtleCoin Discord in the #dev_general channel.

TurtleCoind Default Settings Change

The default database write buffer size, read buffer size, maximum open files, and background threads have increased to help with daemon stability. The increases are as follows:

  • Write Buffer Size: 256MB -> 1GB
  • Read Buffer Size: 10MB -> 1GB
  • Maximum Open Files: 100 -> 500
  • Background Threads: 2 -> 10

These values may need adjusted based on your system resources, configured limits, etc. Please review the TurtleCoind --help for changing these values at runtime.

End of Life (EOL) Notice

The final release of zedwallet is scheduled for v0.20.0. Any releases of the core suite after v0.20.0 will replace the legacy zedwallet with zedwallet++ and all legacy zedwallet code will be removed.

Release Notes

General Updates

  • Added Chukwa support
    • Argon2id with 512KB memory, 3 iterations, 1 thread.
  • Scheduled block major version change to 6 at block 1,800,000.
  • Difficulty reset scheduled at block 1,800,000 to account for possible drops in network hashrate.
  • Switch to native builds instead of portable builds by default. Releases will still be default (portable) builds. Please see the build directions if you wish to compile portable builds.
  • CryptoNight based cryptography has been split into platform specific files to make it easier to read through the code.
  • Dropped support for gcc based builds on OSX due to ongoing issues with the gcc toolchain on that platform. Clang is the recommended toolchain for OSX.
  • Resolves an issue with the portable CryptoNight cryptography that would result in invalid hash calculations on some platforms.
  • Changed default build type from Release with Debug Info to Release
  • Core code reorganization to help reduce dependencies for some binaries thereby speeding up compilation for some users.
  • Removed unused code from the project.
  • Renamed all directories in the /src folder to lowercase
  • Internal checkpoints updated through block 1,705,000
  • Applied standard code formatting via clang-format to project source code.
    • New PRs must be formatted using clang-format against the changes before the PR will be accepted. For ease of use, the node script found at /scripts/format.js can be ran to travserse all of the necessary directories and format the code to the new standard.
  • Resolved a number of compiler warnings when using Clang or GCC
  • Simplified the Windows build instructions

TurtleCoind Updates

  • Resolved #815: QueryBlocksDetailed does not populate transaction extra "raw" property in response
  • Resolved #861: Return better error messages via the node /sendrawtransaction method
    • This now returns an informative error message in the error property of the response on why a submitted transaction failed to be broadcast to the network
  • P2P version increased to version 6 to assist with the upcoming network upgrade
    • Minimum version now set to 5
  • Increased the default DB write buffer size, read buffer size, max open files, and number of background threads to improve daemon performance. Thanks @LeoStehlik
  • Removed all references to testnet as that has not been supported in production code for quite some time.
  • Clarified the error message generated when a submitted transaction contains already spent input key images

zedwallet Updates

  • Resolved #839: Zedwallet crashing when parsing extra)
  • Resolved issue in edge cases where parsing of the public key from tx_extra would fail.

zedwallet-beta Updates

  • Added support for prefetching block information from nodes such that the wallet maintains a cache of blocks locally for processing versus waiting for new data before scanning for transactions.
  • Added support for multithreaded wallet syncing thereby allowing the wallet to sync faster than when just a single thread is used.
  • Added support for skipCoinbaseTransactions that is enabled by default that skips scanning coinbase transactions as the large majority of users do not directly receive block rewards. To enable the scanning of coinbase transactions, specify --scan-coinbase-transactions as a CLI argument.
  • Resolved issue in edge cases where parsing of the public key from tx_extra would fail.
  • Updated user messages to provide more information upon chain fork.
  • Added support for opening and thus transparently upgrading legacy wallets created by zedwallet and turtle-service.
  • Added set_log_level command
  • Resolved an issue in handling inputs during chain reorganization events

turtle-service Updates

  • N/A

wallet-api Updates

  • Added support for prefetching block information from nodes such that the wallet maintains a cache of blocks locally for processing versus waiting for new data before scanning for transactions.
  • Added support for multithreaded wallet syncing thereby allowing the wallet to sync faster than when just a single thread is used.
  • Resolved issue in edge cases where parsing of the public key from tx_extra would fail.
  • Updated some user messages to provide more information upon chain fork.
  • Added support for opening and thus transparently upgrading legacy wallets created by zedwallet and turtle-service.
  • Added --no-console option to allow for a non-interactive session thereby supporting wallet-api as a daemon process in the background
  • Resolved an issue in handling inputs during chain reorganization events
  • Corrected API HTTP status code responses for some endpoint calls

Special Note

  • Added support for skipCoinbaseTransactions that is enabled by default that skips scanning coinbase transactions as the large majority of users do not directly receive block rewards. To enable the scanning of coinbase transactions, specify --scan-coinbase-transactions as a CLI argument.
    • If you operate a pool or other service using wallet-api we highly recommend that you activate this option.

miner Updates

  • Reduced dependencies
