We’ve wrapped around all the protocol issues we are aware of and prepared the first release candidate, tagged as
v6.0.0-rc1. It includes all the changes introduced by the
v0.0.0-iris test release above and some small tweaks, for example the gas pricing model had been revisited heavily. Gas consumption must correspond to computations made and @hanssv.chain had made an extra effort balancing those. Kudos to him for that.
Again - you can spin a node of your own with the following setup:
If you want, you can also join the
testnet - this release candidate is already deployed there. In order to do this you only have to change the network id of your node to
ae_uat. The node will connect with
testnet nodes and download the
testnet blockchain. The forking point for
testnet is set up to be at height 425900, which we expect to happen somewhere around noon CET on 5th May, Wednesday.
You can also test the upgraded JS SDK, it handles all the API changes the node brings. Kudos for @davidyuk for the hard work.
The forking point for main net is not yet set in this release. We want to do some more tests and once we are happy with the results, we will produce
v6.0.0 with the forking point set. Stay tuned
