Blockchain Release: Minor Updates

· 2 min read

The team has a new release tagged 2021.01.12.0 which contains minor bug fixes, test updates and a snapshot bump. Please read further for more details.

blockchain-core#704: Add hip17 beacon only test group

The team added more test cases which specifically address beacon specific HIP15/17 changes in blockchain-core.

blockchain-core#710: Reduce log level for reward transaction

Just reduces the chatter when an error happens when a Hotspot is not found in gateway_cache.

blockchain-core#715: Detect missing request block hash

The team found a bug which was caused due to an unhandled case clause condition which would make blockchain-etl drop sync with the chain when trying to tag witnesses for their invalidation reason. This is now fixed.

miner#592: Fix POC to disallow self-witnessing

After doing some investigation on chain, the team found that there are instances where a Hotspot may incorrectly witness itself for a PoC receipt transaction. This happens likely due to inconsistent RF. We have updated miner to disallow any self-witnessing.

miner#596: Update blockchain and Snapshot

We have updated miner to use new blockchain-core and the snapshot block to 672481 to allow newly onboarded hotspots to sync faster to the current blockchain head block.


We have been beta testing 2021.01.12.0 since January 12th, 2021 4:00PM PT. Current ETA for GA is 11:00 AM PT, January 13th, 2021.
