Forknote 1.0.10.0.1 Release

Forknote 1.0.10.0.1 was released.

Since Bytecoin hardforks at this version, because of the new block size, all existing Forknote blockchains (Dashcoin, Magnatoj, Ethanolium, …) hardforked or will hardfork as well. We urge everyone to update since old wallets won’t be able to support new block sizes.

Changes:

  • Core changed to Bytecoin 1.0.10 (more info (https://bytecoin.org/news/bytecoin-1.0.10-new-block-size-rpc-wallet-fusion-transactions/))
  • –config-file option of forknoted and simplewallet is now mandatory

Configuration variables changes:

  • UPGRADE_HEIGHT changed to UPGRADE_HEIGHT_V2
  • CRYPTONOTE_BLOCK_GRANTED_FULL_REWARD_ZONE changed to CRYPTONOTE_BLOCK_GRANTED_FULL_REWARD_ZONE_V2
  • New parameters added: CRYPTONOTE_BLOCK_GRANTED_FULL_REWARD_ZONE, UPGRADE_HEIGHT_V3

Forknote 1.0.9.1 Release

Forknote 1.0.9.1 was released.

Changes in this version:

  • Core changed to Bytecoin 1.0.9.1
  • Various minor bug fixes
  • Bug fixes affecting premined coins
  • ‘walletd –local’ now works

Forknote 1.0.9 Release

Forknote’s core has been updated to Bytecoin v1.0.9.

Bytecoin v1.0.9 introduces major changes in the RPC Wallet. We can highlight the following features among the new ones:

  • An option for backup or transferring RPC Wallet keys to another server. Using the ‘getSpendKeys’ and ‘getViewKey’ functions, you can get every private key managed by the Wallet. Later you can save them in a secure storage or install on another server using the ‘reset’ and ‘createAddress’ functions.

  • Delayed transactions. This tool allows you to validate transaction parameters, lock the outputs for a transaction, calculate a hash etc. before sending the transaction into the network. We have introduced the concept of delayed transactions in order to make sure that a transaction passes all checks before being sent.

  • The new API allows for operating with the blockchain directly. For instance, there are functions now that allow a developer to get the list of hashes of the last blocks or transactions. It is also possible to get data on certain Payment ID or certain address managed by RPC Wallet from a range of blocks.

The new 1.0.8.2 version of Forknote is available in the downloads section.

Cryptonote generator documentation added

Documentation for the Cryptonote generator was added. With the generator you can generate a separate source of any Forknote coins. This ability is valuable if you need an actual source or you want to extend the functionality of a coin.

The way to extend the functionality of a Forknote coin is through extensions. This ensures that the development of your coin constantly matches that of Bytecoin.

What the actual positives of using the generator instead of merging?

  • In most of the cases it will save you the actual merging process
  • It will save you the merge conflicts

The downside is writing extensions is slower than writing just a C code. But since the extensions are pure json, the process CAN be reduced to just writing a C code.
