Omni Core v0.5.0 released

Today we have released Omni Core v0.5.0 which addresses the previously identified startup delays/issues.

 

v0.5.0 is a major release and consensus critical in terms of the Omni Layer protocol rules. An upgrade is mandatory, and highly recommended. Prior releases may not be compatible with new behaviour in this release.

 

Note: the first time you run this version, all Omni Layer transactions are reprocessed due to an database update, which may take 30 minutes up to several hours.

Earlier last week we identified an edgecase issue in Omni Core which affected the client during startup. To recap from our tweet, when a client started it will fail to validate the cached freeze status and force the client to shutdown. The workaround was to start the client with `-startclean` which removed the cached files and forced a re-parse of the existing data, the downside is that this could be a very slow process.

We are happy to say the fix for this has been tested and will be included in the next release of Omni Core, v0.5.0, which is going through it’s final QA checks for publication shortly. A separate announcement post will follow with the details of the release when ready.

This is a reminder to the community that Omni is not and does not run any type of ‘Bonus’ events where you can ‘claim’ any sort of reward or token. Please be extra careful of any site that asks you to login to your Omniwallet or provide any sensitive information in exchange for free money. Remember If it’s too good to be true, then it probably is. Users should be suspicious of people or situations that offer any type of benefit and ask for very little in return.

Omni Core v0.4.0 released

To all Omni Layer integrators and developers,

Today we have released Omni Core v0.4.0.

v0.4.0 is a major release and consensus critical in terms of the Omni Layer protocol rules. An upgrade is mandatory and highly recommended.

During startup the database is checked for consistency issues. If an inconsistency is found, all Omni Layer transactions are reprocessed. Depending on the hardware, this process can take several hours. While no issues are expected during this upgrade, it is crucial to also refresh overlay systems (e.g. balance caches for user accounts), if such a rescan is triggered.

Before updating Omni Core, you can manually perform a consistency check to ensure a proper startup by following the instructions located here:

There have been a growing number of reports of users being scammed because they have been purchasing previously created wallets and don’t actually have control of the funds within those wallets. This is a very important reminder to never purchase a wallet or an address from anyone. If you did not create the wallet or the addresses within it, you can not confirm the security of anything given to you. Always insist that any transfers are sent directly to an address you created and you alone control.

There are several other fixes and tweaks behind the scene for consistency. Updates to the api documentation will be following in the next few weeks.
