EOSIO Shares Version 1.3 Updates With WABT Integration And Continual Upgrades
EOSIO, a native cryptocurrency powered by blockchain, announced that it had released an updated version of EOSIO. The EOSIO 1.3.0 version of EOSIO is made up of several new and additional features as well as bug fixes. Besides, version 1.3.0 has cumulative patches that are made against the previous version of 1.2.
Users can download the new version of EOSIO from their official webpage, GitHub. The new additional features available in the latest version of EOSIO are:
• Complete integration of the web assembly Binary Toolkit (WABT).
• A standard Web Assembly that is compliant with the EOSIO blockchain.
The integrated Web assembly binary Toolkit and the Web Assembly features will play a major role in the platform. The features will be providing nodes with an added advantage since the transaction process will be of a cheaper and reliable cost. To enable the above two features, users will be able to change this from the settings section by changing the setting from wasmruntime parameter of the nodeos to wabt.
Additionally, nodes have a choice of granting light validation to blocks signed by stated procedures. This particular option was added onto the platform to enable a faster flow and movement of transactions as well as blocks all over the API local network and the peer to peer (P2P) network. Moreover, the option will facilitate block signing nodes to operate as per the block procedures.
The network makes use of a MongoDB database. After the addition of the new features, the MongoDB database will now be able to store important information about a particular block. The MongoDB database will, besides, be used in the storing of details on how memory is used. The new features within the MongoDB database will be of great importance more so to the developers; since most developers will have a great insight on evaluating how resources and memory are utilized.
Apart from The integrated Web assembly binary Toolkit and the Web Assembly, the EOSIO team has also introduced two new additional feature, support for the keosd socket that operates on HTTP and a generation of error messages. The error message will be displayed whenever an unknown configuration item pops up. This will be important in preventing nodes from starting up when not needed.
As if not enough, the new 3.1.0 EOSIO version is also comprised of several other new features and additions whose role is of smaller impact though. The several smaller additions include unit test bug fixers, launcher tests, Docker file improvements, unused variable removers, and transaction trace loggings for the viability of P2P transactions. Other smaller features are frameworks casings fixers for case sensitive MacOs builds, as well as additional optional flags.
As soon as these new features came into action, the EOSIO team stated that it had depreciated the value of three of its parameters. These parameters had been in operation within the previous version that now becomes obsolete. The parameters that were deprecated were eosiocpp, cleos and binaryyen parameters.
