New Updates on the NEO Network
NGD added a new plugin type called IPersistencePlugin. It changed the open wallet for RPC server after startup and allowed the creation of an iterator from the array in NEO.Iterator.Create API. It also fixed some issues with the NEOVM which led to an inconsistent execution state and fixed the “too many open files” error. It also fixed an issue with MerkleTree.
To remove the risk of forking, it optimized the consensus mechanism, and it is currently under test phase for enhancing stability. The vitality of the consensus mechanism is guaranteed by a commit phase and a regeneration strategy. NGD has also built a consensus node monitoring system for logging which is composed of three parts, LogPlugin, LogServer, and LogMonitor.
