We're pleased to announce c-lightning 0.7, named by Mark Beckwith.


Highlights for Users

* Plugins are here, with frameworks for C, Python and Go! Write your own
  cool extensions!
* Much better pay implementation (a plugin!) will folllow route hints,
  give ongoing paystatus.
* All amount parameters take 'msat', 'sat', or 'btc' to avoid
  satoshi/millisatoshi confusion.
* If your node ran out of memory with gossipd consuming 100% CPU, that
  and several other crashes are fixed!
* Reproducible builds for Ubuntu, based on Ubuntu 18.04.1.

Highlights for the network

* option_dataloss_protect fixed and reenabled for everyone.
* We accept some known lnd protocol oddities rather than spitting the dummy and closing the channel.
* You can no longer make unpayable "wumbo" invoices.

We're grateful for all the bug reports and suggestions and your patience
as we sometimes struggled to address them: please keep them coming!

Since 0.6.3 we've had 284 commits from 16 different authors, 5 of whom
were first-time c-lightning contributors:

    Alekos Filini
    Michael Schmoock
    Rene Pickhardt

That's comparable with the last release, but in 7 weeks instead of 10: kudos!

Rusty, Christian and ZmnSCPxj.
