project release date
c-lightning v0.10.1

We're pleased to announce the 0.10.1 release of c-lightning, named by @nalinbhardwaj.

This is a recommended upgrade: payment secrets in invoices are now compulsory, and offers and dual funding drafts have been updated, so these (experimental) features are incompatible with previous releases!

NOTE: Users of the rebalance or drain plugins MUST update, as payment secret is now compulsory.

Highlights for Users

  • experimental-dual-fund allows advertizement of funding rates which we will contribute to channels automatically, on a 1-month lease.
  • withdraw and close (if peer supports) now supports Taproot (and other future) addresses.
  • listchannels can now be queried by destination, as well as source.
  • plugin rescan now automatically reloads plugins which have changed.
  • We try to restart automatically if we notice subdaemons have been upgraded underneath us.
  • fundpsbt will no longer include uneconomic UTXOs (unless all).
  • close will return a stream of notifications if there is a delay in closing.
  • Unilateral close feerates were reduced from bitcoind's "2 CONSERVATIVE" to "6 ECONOMICAL".
  • Tor v2 is deprecated: please upgrade to v3!
  • Fixed disconnection bug when an HTLC failed.
  • Fixed bug in rapid feerate changes, and make code space them out (LND compat).
  • Fixed bug where Tor on different ports could be advertized incorrectly.
  • Fixed various bugs to make pay more robust.

Highlights for the Network

  • payment secrets in invoices are now compulsory, finally closing a potential probing (or, with amountless invoices, stealing) attack.
  • option_shutdown_anysegwit allows peers to close channels to any future segwit version address (taproot!).
  • keysend now understands routehints, for routing to unpublished nodes, and sets the final CLTV to 22, for rust-lightning nodes.
  • invoice now allows creation of wumbo invoices (> 0.0429 BTC).
  • We will now discuss old channels with peers who reconnect, even if we consider them closed.

Highlights for Developers

  • Manual pages now document exactly the JSON you can expect from each command (and it's tested!)
  • Plugins can now publish notifications for other plugins to listen to.
  • force-feerates allows complete feerate override (mainly for regtest), and a bug fixed where we could send 0 update_fee on regtest.
  • The HSM daemon is now separated into libhsmd, which also provides Python bindings.
  • createonion can now make variable-sized onions, and sendonion no longer requires direction and channel for firsthop.
  • dev-sendcustommsg is now simply sendcustommsg.
  • Many offers API improvements and updates, including unsigned offers (smaller QR codes!).

More details can be found in the changelog.
