Concordium Node 6.3.0 for Testnet

Concordium node version 6.3.0 is released for testnet.

The 6.3.0 release contains the following fixes and improvements:

  • Fixed a bug where GetBlockPendingUpdates fails to report pending updates to the finalization committee parameters.
  • GRPC queries are now run in dedicated threads. This improves node resource management and increases responsiveness of the GRPC server in cases of a high number of concurrent queries. To support this a new option --grpc2-max-threads (environment variable CONCORDIUM_NODE_GRPC2_MAX_THREADS) has been added, which specifies the number of threads that the node should use for processing gRPC requests. If not set this defaults to the number of (logical) CPUs.
  • The option --grpc2-max-concurrent-streams now defaults to 200 from the previous unbounded value. This makes the node defaults safer.
  • Startup time of the node has improved on all supported distributions.

Updating to the newest node version is not required but is highly recommended.

Release for Mainnet is planned for February 27, 2024.
