This is a recommended upgrade!
We're pleased to announce c-lightning 0.7.1, named by new C-Lightning
Core Team member Lisa Neigut.
Highlights for Users
o Gossip (both serving to others and listchannels) is much faster and
uses much less memory.
o Infrastructure to fund a channel from an external wallet (probably
needs a plugin to make it user friendly).
o listpeers now show how many confirms until channel is open.
o Ability to set a minimum channel size to accept.
o Invoices now default to 7 days, rather than 1 hour.
o fundchannel can now specify exactly what utxos to use, if you want
o Various JSON API corner cases and bugs have been removed, more
o Lots of new plugin hooks to play with; we expect some more impressive
Highlights for the network
o We no longer ask every peer for all the gossip which ever happened!
o We respect and enforce option_upfront_shutdown_script (mainly for Eclair)
o We no longer allow tiny 1000 satoshi channels: default minimum is now
o Improved compatibility with corner cases for both lnd (esp. older
versions) and Eclair.
