Weekly Edition for Thursday, Oct 22
This release includes many exciting new features, API changes as well as several bug fixes and improvements. Its is fully compatible with 0.4.1 (and all previous versions of eclair).
Third-party plugins are now able to add new feature bits to eclair and handle unknown custom messages. This lets plugin developers offer services to their customers that are not available in the Lightning specification (e.g. swap-in/swap-out), while staying fully compatible with the network.
See #1528 for more details.
This release adds experimental support for anchor outputs channels. The main benefit of this type of channels is that it is possible to bump the on-chain fees of commitment transactions and htlc transactions once they are in the mempool to speed up their confirmation.
Eclair is fully compatible with the anchor output specification, but automatic fee bumping has not been implemented yet, hence we do not recommend activating the feature. Some attacks that are specific to anchor outputs have also been discovered recently and haven't been fully addressed yet, but will be fixed in future releases.
This release adds support for spontaneous payments using keysend. It is fully compatible with lnd and c-lightning and makes it easy for public LN nodes to receive donations.
This release contains many new APIs and improvements to existing ones:
