Dev Updates - August 2020

Here are the latest Dev updates for August 2020!

  • New helper library with test fixtures which reduces a lot of boilerplate and makes writing tests much more simpler

  • Transports are classified into internal and external so we can handle them differently (e.g. cut-through, spam checks, etc)

  • Beacons only accept registrations from internal transports and are protected from external poisoning through an access control check

  • New pipe transport which maintains a persistent IPC connection with proper delegate notifications about connection status

  • Rlpx cryptography migrated from cryptopp to secp256k1, much more cleaner and less buggy

  • Added RPC methods to BSC to support spam checks and other analysis

  • Improved ABCI design to support the RPC methods, doesn’t need a standalone RPC bridge any more
