Horcrux v2.1 released
Dec 15, 2022
Horcrux version 2.1.0 is live on GitHub as of December 14th, 2022.
Due to underlying library changes, a rolling update from v2.0 is not supported. See notes at the end of this update for the procedure to update from v2.0 to v2.1.
Improvements over v2.0:
Debug server with prometheus /metrics endpoint. #93
Import state from `tendermint priv_validator_state.json` file with horcrux state import. You will be asked to paste your file contents. #92
Threshold parameter validation during key shard and daemon startup #112
Logs added for participating cosigners even if they are not receiving requests directly from a sentry. #111
Updating from Horcrux v2.0 to v2.1
Due to raft library updates, a rolling update from v2.0.0 is not supported. While it may be possible it is untested and we strongly recommend the following procedure.
- shut down all cluster nodes and delete the `~/.horcrux/raft` directory
- update the binary or docker image to v2.1.0
- start nodes back up
Big thank you to first time contributor @chillyvee for work on the prometheus metrics, state import command, and leader election IPv6 fix.
