UltraPoint 0.15.0
UltraPoint 0.15.0 "Cosinus" Release

This is the v0.15.0 major release of the Ultrapoint software, and it is a mandatory update due to the September 15th hard fork, which in turn increases the minimum ring signature size to 5 across the network, bans duplicate ring members in a ring signature, and enforces use of ringCT for all transaction outputs. This release of the software presents a number of major improvements to Ultrapoint, as well as a large set of bug fixes.


Some highlights of this release are:

  • major synchronisation speed-up from reducing bandwidth used
  • massively improved the blockchain import function
  • changed terminology from "mixin" to "ring size"
  • add a --fluffy-blocks option to relay blocks as fluffy blocks if possible
  • allow for password verification without loading the subsequently unencrypted wallet into RAM
  • reduced privacy leak risks when using untrusted remote nodes
  • added an Esperanto wordlist for mnemonic seed choices
  • decreased memory demands for the getblocks RPC call
  • added a "fee" command to display fee information
  • transfer CLI command warns if there's a tx backlog for selected fee
  • add average seconds per block in bc_dyn_stats
  • added an on_get_alt_blocks_hashes RPC call
  • added an Italian translation for the CLI
  • return the per-tx amount in the transfer_split RPC call
  • switched to readline for the CLI
  • automatically switch to SAFE db-sync-mode once daemon catches up to network
  • added a histogram to poolstats
  • major speed-up for poolstats and coinbase_tx_sum
  • enable support for macOS smart mining
  • added the ability to build a Snap package
  • added a Vulnerability Response Process, with bug bounties available via a dedicated HackerOne portal
  • added support for payment proving via key derivation instead of tx key reveal
  • changed output selection for ring signatures to heavily weight newer outputs
  • added a sweep_below function to sweep small amounts
  • moved the mempool to a database on disk instead of keeping it all in memory
  • fully enable iOS and Android full node support
  • enabled support for ppc64le architectures
  • added the ability to create and open wallets via RPC
  • added ability to relay transactions manually after creating them
