After many months of hard work, the official release of Stacks 2.1
is finally upon us! This release is a culmination of a lot of work between many users, developers, exchanges, and companies building on Stacks, and adds many improvements outlined below:Start your upgrade
Since this is a hard fork upgrade, attempting to upgrade an existing chainstate will fail.
The main requirement for this release is that a full genesis sync must
be performed since the 2.1 chainstate is incompatible with previous Stacks blockchain versions. For anyone using the Hiro API
- any existing database data will also be incompatible with the 2.1 chainstate.
The expected cutover date for when Stacks 2.1
is activated should happen around March 20, 2023 (Bitcoin block 781,551), and the upgrade path is similar to previous minor updates - with the only requirement being a full chainstate sync from genesis.ResourcesDocs
