Omni Core v0.3.1 Released: Recommended upgrade!

Dear Omni Layer integrators and developers,
we released Omni Core v0.3.1, which is a minor release and not consensus critical in terms of the Omni Layer protocol rules.
Besides other improvements, this release provides two new RPCs to create funded transactions and to pay fees from different sources (omni_funded_send and omni_funded_sendall), two new RPCs (omni_getwalletbalances and omni_getwalletaddressbalances) to query token wallet balances, and significant stability and performance gains of Omni Core.
An upgrade is highly recommended.
To download and view the release notes in your browser, please visit:
While most exchanges list USDT, we would like to ask you to also consider listing Omni, the native token of the Omni Layer protocol. We would be happy to guide or help with an integration.
Please feel free, to contact us for questions.

There have been recent reports of scam sites starting to popup which aim to imitate Omniwallet in an attempt scam people out of their wallet information. Please remember Omniwallet’s official url is https://www.omniwallet.org . To prevent loss, always double check the url of the page you are visiting before attempting to login to your wallet. Additionally we urge users to ensure they have setup/enabled a compatible MFA device on their wallet.  As a final note/recap, we recently released the updated Omni Core Integration Guide . If you are looking to integrate Omni Core into your platform this should be your first stop for information.

Project Updates

OmniExplorer/OmniAPI

General backend stability improvements and bug fixes.

 Omniwallet

Minor performance / ui updates and bug fixes.

Omnicore

Version 0.3.1 is in final release prep. We are finalizing release notes and verifying builds. We expect to announce the general release within the next 2 weeks. In addition to some general stability and performance improvements this release adds some new rpc calls which support local wallet balances and funded sending.  Funded sending (a more in depth article to follow) allows the use of an additional address to help cover the extra BTC needed when sending an Omni Protocol transaction. In order to validate with the bitcoin blockchain the original sending address will still need at least one utxo to contribute to the transaction but now the bulk of the network/mining fee’s can be paid from a separate address.

Omni Core Integration Guide Now Available

With the growing popularity and increasing use of the Omni Protocol and the asset/tokens created there within, we have put together the following Integration Guide.

The primary goal is to provide a starting point for service providers/exchanges/wallet operators looking to incorporate the Omni Protocol into their platform. While this will not cover every single use case or integration option it should cover the majority and provide a good starting point for platform operators/maintainers on where to get started.

The full guide is available here: https://github.com/OmniLayer/omnicore/wiki/Platform-Integration-of-Omni-Core with an excerpt of the Table of Contents Below

Omni Core Integration Guide Now Available

We recently release an intro guide for Integrating Omni Core to receive payments.  This was in response to community messages over an exchange that had unfortunately integrated and implemented the client without taking into account the full details of a transactions validity before processing it on their platform. Over the next few weeks we will be working on a more indepth version of this guide which will be usable by any integrator wishing to add support for the Omni Protocol. It will also be encouraged for  project developers to reference this guide when having their project added to new exchanges/platforms.

Maintenance Event – June 5th 14:00 UTC

Planned Maintenance:

On Tuesday June 5th we will be performing our previously mentioned planned maintenance to upgrade several backend components.

The Maintenance will start at approx 14:00 UTC June 5th, and we expect it to last around 8 hours. During this maintenance window all Omniwallet and OmniExplorer services will be temporarily unavailable. We strongly encourage any users who expect to need access to their wallets during this time attempt to perform any movements before the maintenance window begins or to take the proper preparatory steps necessary to have any needed funds available in alternate locations.

This Maintenance will not affect any Omnicore users or any integrations using the Omnicore client. Any services which are directly utilizing Omniwallet or OmniExplorer will be unavailable during this time.

Upcoming Planned Maintenance affecting Omniwallet/OmniExplorer: June 5th.

Within the next 2 weeks we will be announcing a maintenance window which will require downtime for both Omniwallet and Omniexplorer. During this maintenance window we will be upgrading the backend database. These upgrades will allow us to add some additional database indexes which should result in some query performance improvements overall.

Project Updates

OmniExplorer/OmniAPI

We are currently testing the next release for OmniExplorer which includes support for crowdsale listings and information as well as numerous other fixes/updates/tweaks. As mentioned above there will be an upcoming maintenance window (TBD) which will require downtime of OmniExplorer and OmniAPI. Part of this maintenance window will allow us to add additional indexes which should allow us to develop more robust api queries in the future.

Omniwallet/OmniEngine

A mentioned above there will be an upcoming maintenance window (TBD) which will require downtime of Omniwallet. During the maintenance window all Omniwallet services will be unavailable however any funds received by users during this time will be unaffected. Once the maintenance window is complete all wallets and funds will be accessible again.

Omnicore

A big kudos to dexx for working on and starting the new Omnicore wiki over the past few weeks. Going forward it will become the defacto reference point for information regarding Omnicore, expanding and pulling new information from topics/issues as they are identified.
