Zebra 1.5.0 Launch

The Zcash Basis is happy to announce the discharge of Zebra model 1.5.0.

This launch features a “Minimal Viable Product” (MVP) implementation of shielded scanning, with a brand new “zebra-scan” crate and behind an experimental “shielded-scan” function. This marks step one in direction of full assist for shielded scanning in Zebra and we’re excited to proceed constructing out the performance. Ongoing improvement is tracked in subject #7728.    

Necessary Safety Warning

This new function is for experimental use solely and has identified safety points. We advocate that you just do NOT use common or delicate viewing keys with Zebra’s experimental scanning function. You also needs to NOT use this function on a shared machine. In case you do wish to do this out, we advise that you just generate new keys for experimental use.

Additionally included on this launch:

  • A repair for a panic that was launched in Zebra v1.4.0, which occurs in uncommon circumstances when studying cached sprout or historical past bushes.
  • Additional enhancements to how Zebra recovers from community interruptions and prevents potential community hangs.
  • Enhancements to restrict the flexibility of artificial nodes to unfold all through the community by way of Zebra, to handle a few of the Ziggurat purple workforce report.

As of this launch, Zebra requires Rust 1.73 to construct.
