Notable adjustments

getblocktemplate regression repair

We added assist for the NU5 consensus guidelines in v4.5.0, which alters the block header to comprise a hashBlockCommitments worth as an alternative of the chain historical past root. Nevertheless, the output of getblocktemplate wasn’t returning this worth; as soon as NU5 activated, the blockcommitmentshash subject was being set to “null” (all-zeroes).

In v4.6.0 we added full NU5 assist to getblocktemplate, by including a defaultroots subject that gave default values for hashBlockCommitments and the parts required to derive it. Nevertheless, in doing so we launched a regression within the (now-deprecated) legacy fields, the place previous to NU5 activation they contained nonsense.

This launch fixes the output of getblocktemplate to have the meant semantics for all fields:

  • The blockcommitmentshash and authdataroot fields in defaultroots at the moment are omitted from block templates for heights earlier than NU5 activation.
  • The legacy fields now all the time comprise the default worth to be positioned into the block header (regaining their earlier semantics).
