Note the latest changes

There are several important changes to note:

  • The latest release candidate is not backward compatible. Starting a blockchain from scratch is required to use this version, or waiting for future migration scripts that will support migration from previous versions.
  • As of v0.9, there is no support for manifest configuration (manifest.json) and it is also no longer part of the genesis process. The genesis file (genesis.json) now includes the necessary app-specific configuration.
  • Delegation is no longer supported as of v0.9. This means that nodes can no longer delegate their stake to other nodes in the network. Instead, nodes are required to be allowlisted on the network.

Please take these changes into account before using the v0.9 release.
