Bitcoin ABC 0.18.8

Bitcoin ABC version 0.18.8 is now available from:

This release includes the following features and fixes:

  • dumpwallet now includes hex-encoded scripts from the wallet in the dumpfile
  • importwallet now imports these scripts, but corresponding addresses may not be added correctly or a manual rescan may be required to find relevant transactions
  • getblock <hash> 2 (verbosity = 2) now returns hex values in transaction JSON blobs
  • Remove miner policy estimator in favor of minimum fees, also remove fee_estimates.dat. Old copies will be left in place.
  • The log timestamp format is now ISO 8601 (e.g. "2019-01-28T15:41:17Z")
  • Behavior change: in case of multiple values for an argument, the following rules apply:
    • From the command line, the last value takes precedence
    • From the config file, the first value takes precedence
    • From the config file, if an argument is negated it takes precedent over all the previous occurences of this argument (e.g. "foo=2 \n nofoo=1" will set foo=0)
  • The configuration files now support assigning options to a specific network. To do so, sections or prefix can be used: main.uacomment=bch-mainnet test.uacomment=bch-testnet regtest.uacomment=bch-regtest [main] mempoolsize=300 [test] mempoolsize=200 [regtest] mempoolsize=50 The addnode=, connect=, port=, bind=, rpcport=, rpcbind= and wallet= options will only apply to mainnet when specified in the configuration file, unless a network is specified.
