### Eclair v0.3.4

This release includes many improvements, as well as a few bug fixes. Its is fully compatible with 0.3.3 (and all previous versions of eclair). # Major changes ### Wumbo channels Eclair now supports wumbo channels (see https://github.com/lightningnetwork/lightning-rfc/pull/596). To activate it, update your eclair.conf and set eclair.features = 080a8a (note that if you chose to enable/disable a different set of features from the recommended ones, that value will be slightly different). You also need to set an upper limit on channels size in eclair.max-funding-satoshis. Once that's configured, you can open channels above the previous 0.167 BTC limit (if your peer accepts it). Be cautious though; bigger channels may attract more attackers towards your node. Make sure your node deployment is secure before you start opening many large channels. ### Packaging rework Eclair is now packaged as a zip folder (see https://github.com/ACINQ/eclair/pull/1307). This new packaging allows us to provide verifiable builds for eclair-node and eclair-node-gui. It also brings us one step closer to verifiable builds for eclair-mobile and phoenix. Note that you won't find a capsule jar as before. To start eclair you should now use one of the scripts provided in the package. ### GUI deprecation eclair-node-gui is being deprecated and will not be published with future releases. Source code will still remain available for some time, and building the GUI is very easy (check [BUILD.md]( https://github.com/ACINQ/eclair/blob/master/BUILD.md) for more details, but basically mvn install -DskipTests is enough to build eclair-node and eclair-node-gui). We strongly encourage people to use the API instead, see https://github.com/ACINQ/eclair/wiki/Usage#command-line-with-eclair-cli for more information (it works on Windows too). Our GUI was built for demonstration and testing purposes, typically with a few nodes on single machine and in regtest mode. Using it as a Lightning wallet or to run routing nodes on mainnet is a very bad fit: - if you're looking for a Lightning wallet, consider using [Phoenix](https://phoenix.acinq.co/) or [Eclair Mobile](https://github.com/ACINQ/eclair-mobile) instead. - if you want to run a routing node, then it should be running on a machine that is reliable, secure, maintained, reachable from the internet and online most of the time, i.e probably not your desktop PC. - having a "bitcoin-like" GUI is misleading: If your Bitcoin node is offline it has a minimal impact on the Bitcoin network and you can still "receive" funds. When you start it again it catches up on the blocks and transactions that it has missed, so having a Bitcoin wallet or node that is often offline is fine. But when your Lightning nodes is offline it cannot send, receive or relay transactions. Your channels will be tagged as disabled and other nodes will have to route around you. # Miscellaneous improvements and bug fixes We've done a lot of work on our metrics and logs; make sure to leverage those to improve your node's monitoring. We've added support for multiple Bitcoin wallets (see https://github.com/ACINQ/eclair/pull/1334). We've found and fixed a few more gossip bugs; if you previously had issues getting your node's information on explorers, this release should fix it. We've also fixed many small bugs and heavily refactored parts of the codebase, which paves the way for more scalability and performance improvements. # 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: sh $gpg --import drouinf.asc  To verify the release file checksums and signatures: sh$ gpg -d SHA256SUMS.asc > SHA256SUMS.stripped \$ sha256sum -c SHA256SUMS.stripped  # Building Eclair builds are deterministic. To reproduce our builds, please use the following environment (*): * Ubuntu 19.10 * AdoptOpenJDK 11.0.6 * Maven 3.6.3 Use the following command to generate the eclair-node package: sh mvn clean install -DskipTests  That should generate eclair-node/target/eclair-node-0.3.4-24aa710-bin.zip and eclair-node-gui/target/eclair-node-gui-0.3.4-24aa710-bin.zip with sha256 checksums that matches the one we provide and sign in SHA256SUMS.asc (*) You may be able to build the exact same artefacts with other operating systems or versions of JDK 11, we have not tried everything. # Upgrading This release is fully compatible with Eclair v0.3.3.
