eclair: v0.2-beta8

This release fixes a bug in our router module where we would tag signatures for channel_update messages that include an optional htlc_maximum_msat field as invalid and close the channel, even when these signatures were actually valid.

This bug is specific to our server/desktop node and does not affect our mobile wallet. Our testnet and mainnet nodes have already been patched. We * strongly * encourage users to upgrade as soon as possible.

Verifying signatures

You will need gpg and our release signing key 7A73FE77DE2C4027. Note that you can get it: - from our website: https://acinq.co/pgp/drouinf.asc - from github user @sstone, a committer on eclair: https://api.github.com/users/sstone/gpg_keys

To import our signing key:

$ gpg --import drouinf.asc

To verify the release file checksums and signatures:

$ gpg -d SHA256SUMS.asc > SHA256SUMS.stripped
$ sha256sum -c SHA256SUMS.stripped

Upgrading

This release is compatible with Eclair v0.2-beta7. You don’t need to close your channels, just stop eclair, upgrade and restart.
