  • Kryptokrauts shared a small sneak peek of what will be possible when they release the new version of the aepp-sdk-java and the contract-maven-plugin:

{Bug Fixes}

  1. AEX-2: Fix firefox compatibility issue (#882) (2e16e10)

{Features}

  1. Chain: add new method waitFOrTxConfirm. Add new option { confirm: 3 } to all of high lvl SDK API. Add tests. Adjust docs (#874) (43528f9)
  2. Compiler: Add new compiler methods API (#875) (a939395)
  3. network: Throw error when can not get networkId (#863) (41b7bd1)

{Docs}

  1. Guide Add 7.0.0 migration guide
  2. Guide: Add Oracle, AENS and Contract guides

{BREAKING CHANGES}

  1. Compiler: Do not validate bytecode by default when creating contract instance. To validate bytecode please use forceCodeCheck option.
  1. The main objectives were to help the Core team to stabilize the code post-mainnet-launch, keep Windows support up-to-date and join the state channels team to improve velocity there.
  2. Regarding platform support, supporting Windows as a first-class platform for the Aeternity node is itself a constant chunk of work because this requires all external libraries to be usable on Windows as well. An example of this was the integration of new crypto operations for use in Sophia contracts.
  3. A project like the Aeternity node requires some effort to make it with new major versions due to its size and complexity. Thus, it was added, the support for OTP 21 which includes roughly 1.5 years of improvements.
  4. The contribution all over the place, updating core dependencies, fixing and improving test coverage, making the build tool-chain more maintainable, looking into improving the resilience of the Core’s database layer. A notable change has been retry support for internal operation.
  5. New metrics to the Aeternity node appeared to help users to understand the current state of the network much better.
  1. add support for source code validation for contracts
  2. improved accessibility of transaction properties in TxObject (and in general for the node client)
  3. add support for delegate signatures for contracts (this was instrumental to identify a bug in the fate vm #3141)

and of course documentation documentation documentation!
