Omni Core v0.8.1 released

Dear Omni Layer integrators,

Today we announce the release of Omni Core 0.8.1. This version is a minor release and includes significant performance improvements for the initial synchronization and upgrading from older versions of Omni Core.

A consensus affecting issue in an earlier version of Omni Core has been identified, which may cause some transactions to be executed twice. This has been addressed and fixed in the previous major version 0.8.0.

If you haven’t upgraded to 0.8.0 yet, this update is mandatory.

The first time you start this version from a version older than 0.8.0, the internal database for Omni Layer transactions is reconstructed, which may consume several hours or even more than a day. Please plan your downtime accordingly.

Upgrading from 0.8.0 does not require a rescan and can be done very fast without interruption.

Omni Core v0.7.1 released

This week we announce the release of Omni Core v0.7.1.

Omni Core 0.7.1 paves the way for trading any asset on the Omni Layer for Bitcoin in a decentralized fashion and it adds new commands to accept and execute orders on the distributed exchange.

Please note, if you have not yet upgraded from 0.6 or earlier versions: Omni Core 0.7 changed the code base of Omni Core from Bitcoin Core 0.13.2 to Bitcoin Core 0.18.1. Once consensus affecting features are enabled, this version is no longer compatible with previous versions and an upgrade is required. Due to the upgrade from Bitcoin Core 0.13.2 to 0.18.1, this version incorporates many changes, so please take your time to read through all previous release notes carefully. The first time you upgrade from Omni Core 0.6 or older versions, the database is reconstructed, which can easily consume several hours. An upgrade from 0.7 to 0.7.1 is seamless.

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:
