We just released Stacks 2.0.3! Pre-built binaries and full change-logs are available here.
This release fixes several bugs in the miner, mempool, chainstate database, and peer network. Highlights include:
- The bugs that were causing transactions to get stuck in the mempool have been fixed.
- The mining code no longer starts mining too early (i.e. you can now specify when it should start)
- The peer network and chainstate databases have undergone some optimizations, yielding faster block-processing and network responsiveness
- A miner’s block-commits are much less likely to be “late” now, thanks to improved UTXO-handling and RBF logic
All of the above has been merged to the
master branch, so feel free to build from source or use the pre-built binaries available here. Please note that the database format has changed – you will need to start the node with a fresh chainstate.
Thanks to everyone who reported bugs on the issue tracker!
