NEM Symbol 0.10.0.4 Release Announcement - Launch On Target

NEM Symbol 0.10.0.4 Release Announcement

14th January 2021 - LAUNCH STILL ON TARGET


The much planned and awaited final major Symbol Release and Testnet patch is now available. Below is further detail, the main release components are:

A huge thankyou to all the team members that worked tirelessly to make this happen, the past 2 weeks have been particularly intense. @Jaguar0625, @gimer and @BloodyRookie’s - efforts over the past 4+ years can also now be seen in the updated Catapult Development Visualisation.

Thanks to CoinDesk for covering the release

This release will now soak until launch and become v1.0 for the Mainnet, there may be further minor patch releases but no new major changes will occur and the code is feature frozen.

As always some risk remains while in Testnet, if something major is found, at this time there are no known major issues and no new features coming; 14th January 2021 launch is on track.

Testnet Issues Summary

This release was expected a week or so ago, final testing identified a few issues, those have now been resolved and the Testnet patch can be released. During this time the Testnet has been frozen/finality stopped while we worked through the issues, apologies for any inconvenience but this was an important process to work through and get right.

We are carrying a couple of known issues/improvements into this release (deep rollback issues on github) which will be updated with a non-breaking patch before launch.

This release is a little different because it was necessary to cause a Hard Fork in the Testnet. A hard fork is a good process to go through as it will occur post launch with feature additions etc, it tests a process we know will occur again. This time it highlighted a couple of issues that were only found due to the hard fork and able to be fixed before Mainnet, it is Testnet fulfilling its purpose & identifying issues pre-launch.

One node (api-01.us-east-1.0.10.0.x.symboldev.network) remains in debug state to for further debugging if necessary, this is unfortunately the default node for the wallet so will need to be changed manually in the wallet. A new wallet release will be announced tomorrow which will solve this minor issue.

Release Process

A Hard Fork occurred at Block 215500, around which point the NGL servers were upgraded and smoke testing (and issue resolution) on the release started. All community Testnet servers will now need to upgrade, ideally asap and resynchronise to catch up on the new fork.

Fortunately, the Symbol Bootstrap tool now supports upgrading of nodes, please see below for instructions.

500 Nodes + Performance Test

A performance test will be undertaken shortly, this is expected to involve:

  • Scaling the number of nodes to at least 500 by Thu/Fri this week, to be left running until launch.

  • Running a high traffic performance test from Fri - Mon/Tue next week, during which time performance is likely to slow down as the network will be deliberately under load

Now - let’s go and test that Testnet!

Updates


How to Upgrade your Testnet Node (0.10.0.4)

Before upgrading, it’s recommended to backup your node’s target folder

Install the latest bootstrap:

npm install -g [email protected]

Peer Node Only

If you are running a Peer only node, run:

symbol-bootstrap start -p testnet -a peer --upgrade (-c myCustomPreset.yml)

The --upgrade opion will recreate your server configuration, docker configuration, and upgrade the format of addresses.yml without dropping the existing data or generates keys.

Dual Node or API Node

If you are running an API or a Dual node, run:

symbol-bootstrap start -p testnet -a api --upgrade --resetData (-c myCustomPreset.yml)

symbol-bootstrap start -p testnet -a dual --upgrade --resetData (-c myCustomPreset.yml)

--resetData will drop the node’s data (but not the keys). The node will synchronize from scratch but reusing your node’s keys. This testnet release doesn’t have a mongo upgrade process, both RocksDB and Mongo DB must be recreated.

If you are creating a new testnet node, --reset will clear up all your data and keys. The keys will be regenerated if you are not providing them with a custom preset.

It’s worth double-checking that your docker services are running. Validate the services logs and check that your node’s keys and accounts are valid.

Ubuntu 20.04
There has been a new release of Symbol Bootstrap tool that resolves the issues deploying onto Ubuntu. This will also now cope with being run as sudo but root level access is not required and we recommend against running with sudo unless you have a specific reason to do so and accept the degraded security.

I will update the main post as well
