Is a continuation of the original Ethereum blockchain - the classic version preserving untampered history; free from external interference and subjective tampering of transactions.

Good news for all members of Ethereum Classic community. New version of ETC Geth has been released.

Let's check what's new!

Added

  • Newly configurable in external chain.json:

    • "state": { "startingNonce": NUMBER } - optional (mainnet: 0, morden: 1048576) - "dirty" starting world state
    • "network": NUMBER - required (mainnet: 1, morden: 2) - network id used to identify valid peers
    • "consensus": STRING - optional (default: "ethash", optional: "ethash-test") - specify smaller and faster pow algorithm, e.g. --dev mode sets "ethash-test". See cmd/geth/config/*.json for updated examples.
  • Dev mode (--dev) made compatible with --chain
  • debug_AccountExist method added to RPC and web3 extension methods 
  • Additional Morden testnet bootnodes
  • Add listen for SIGTERM to stop more gracefully, if possible
Blockchain

Distributed database that is used to maintain a continuously growing list of records, called blocks.

Changed

  • Nightly and tagged release distribution builds made available at builds.etcdevteam.com (instead of Bintray)
  • Option--chain <chainIdentifier|mychain.json> - specify chain identifier or path to JSON configuration file

Fixed

  • geth attach command uses chain subdirectory schema by default, e.g. datadir/mainnet/geth.ipcinstead of datadir/geth.ipc
  • Sometimes ungraceful stopping on SIGTERM, potentially causing corrupted chaindata
  • PublicKey method for protected transactions with malformed chain id causing SIGSEGV
  • Concurrent map read/writes for State Objects
  • Ignore reported neighbors coming from non-reserved addresses; prevents irrelevant discovery attempts on local and reserved IP's
  • RLP-decoded transactions include EIP155 signer if applicable
