Version 1.0.5 is an important upgrade from version 1.0.4; it contains performance hardening changes to improve stability under high network load conditions.
Here is a full list of v1.0.5 changes:
- Journaling block assembler has been modified so that it now only includes a transaction if the supplied fees are greater than, or equal to minblocktxfee. It is also now the default.*
- Free consolidation transactions. Multiple transactions can, under some circumstances, be consolidated into a single transaction at no cost, to minimise the size of the UTXO set. Free consolidation transactions cannot be used with CPFP.
- sendrawtransaction – The node now supports the submission of multiple transactions in a single RPC call. I.e. there is a new RPC call sendrawtransactions.
- Update dust relay fee to be a function of minrelaytxfee, by default to a value of 136 satoshis
*Note you will need to use the config option -blockassembler=legacy if you wish to continue to use the legacy block assembler for mining.
