Notable issues and merges on Bitcoin Core, LND and c-lightning.

Originally published by BitcoinOptech

LND #1987:

The NewWitnessAddress RPC has been removed and the NewAddress RPC now only supports generating addresses for P2SH-wrapped P2WKH and native P2WPKH.

C-Lightning #1982:

The invoice RPC now implements RouteBoost by including a BOLT11 r parameter in the invoice that provides routing information to the payer for an already-open channel that has the capacity to support paying the invoice. This parameter was originally intended to help support private routes, but it can also be used this way to support nodes that no longer want to accept new incoming channels. Alternatively, if no available channel can support payment of the invoice, C-Lightning will emit a warning.
