Releasing version 10.0 of Octez

Version 10.0 of Octez has just been released. Compared to version 9.7, this release candidate changes the storage backend and requires specific care when updating (if you already upgraded to 10.0~rc3, your store is up-to-date). This change significantly improves the performances of the node, in particular memory usage and disk usage.

Version 10.0 also introduces a breaking change for public nodes with the introduction of a new ACL mechanism .

Full changelog and update instructions are available in the version 10 release page: Version 10.0 — Tezos (master branch, 2021/08/19 08:04) documentation

The Git tag for this release is v10.0 and the corresponding commit hash is ea8f2aefbcd54d23ae2919fea1802e2f1f977a94 .

Note: it is likely that version 10.1 will be released in the next few days with improvements to block propagation to reduce endorsement misses.


Sounds great. Keep up the good work.

Thank you NL.

not enable AFL instrumentation by default, most packages will not be
instrumented and fuzzing with afl-fuzz may not be effective.

To globally enable AFL instrumentation, use an OCaml switch such as

Hi @Milfont,

Thanks for your message.

Fuzzing is a technique to generate random inputs to stress-test software, it is not something useful when you just want to run a node but only for testing. So it is perfectly normal that it is not installed in normal use.
