v2.4 is a minor update but not backward compatible with
v2.3.X. This update replaces the current API based communication with WebSockets which means peers on versions before
v2.4.0 will not be able to communicate.
- Upgrade time: low - upgrading to
v2.4only requires minimal configuration changes.
- Complexity: high - P2P communication was rewritten and
@arkecosystem/cryptoexports were modified.
- Risk: high -
v2.4is not backward compatible with
v2.3and includes breaking changes for P2P communication.
