State of Development: Week of August 27th, 2018

Hey everyone,

Check out the latest development update to learn more about Release 0.21.0.

It removes support for MessagePack encoding in the user HTTP API and makes HTTP API more consistent by using IDs in all blockchain components.

It also changes the serialization format of micro headers to include the signature. This changes both what is signed by the miner, and how the block hash for micro blocks is computed which subsequently affects consensus.

Best regards,
The AE Team
