Bamboo Release V0.3.0 is here

We’re excited to announce that today we’re releasing the first version of the RSK Bamboo client node, together with the availability of RSK Bamboo Testnet.

This release brings several security and stability improvements, new VM opcodes and bug fixes, among other changes. Since consensus rules have changed, this version is not compatible with previous versions. If you’ve been working on previous versions of the RSK client node, we encourage you to update to this new one.

This is a summary of the changes included in this release:

– DUPN, SWAPN and TXINDEX new opcodes (#261)
– Addition of REVERT opcode (#230)
– Support for big integer modular exponentiation (#231)
– Other Ethereum Improvement Proposals have been implemented (#253, #267)
– Return status results for mined block submission (#227)
– New blockchain synchronization model (#220, #246, #276) is more stable and secure than previous version.
– Bug fixes (#234, #242, #243, #252, #270, #278, #282)
