  • Support for Tahoe-LAFS
    • Allows storing off-chain data to a Tahoe LAFS deployment (please contact support for access to this feature).
  • Improved full-stack error reporting, allowing the Dashboard to provide clearer and more useful errors if needed.
  • Improved contract and method call validation, along with much improved reporting of validation failures to aid users in tracking down bad values in their requests.

Potentially breaking changes:
When sending a “bytes” argument to a method, you will be required to pad the value to the appropriate size. For example, a bytes32 should be 0x, followed by 64 characters (0-9 A-F a-f). This change has been made as there was undefined and unexpected behaviour when automatically padding on our side that could lead to bytes values not being parsed as expected. This way passes full control of the process to the user.
