Octez v19.0 has just been released
This new major version is the first version compatible with Oxford 2, a revisited protocol upgrade proposal for the successor of Nairobi on Tezos Mainnet, currently undergoing the on-chain governance process.
If Oxford 2 is accepted by the community, please remember to upgrade your infrastructure to Octez v19 with sufficient time before its eventual activation around February 9th.
Octez v19 introduces a few improvements in Smart Rollups infrastructure:
- The rollup node becomes protocol-agonistic: a single executable can be used with any Tezos protocol. The old, protocol-dependent, executables have been kept as symbolic links, but will be removed in a future version.
- A new
history-modeoption for the rollup node with garbage collection support:
fullmode enables garbage collection of rollup data;
- Whereas the default
archivehas garbage collection disabled, preserving previous behavior.
- The rollup client is discontinued: all its functionality can be replaced with equivalent RPC calls.
Octez v19.0 also includes the code of the Oxford 2 protocol proposal itself and its associated executables.
A full Changelog and update instructions are available in the version 19 release page:
