Heimdall Mainnet Update v0.2.3

Hi All,

We have added a method in the Checkpoint module that looks up the rootchain (ethereum for mainnnet and goerli for mumbai) and updates the existing checkpoint. This can be used (by firing a CLI command) in cases where the checkpoint details persisted in the state are incorrect. This method also follows the usual tendermint consensus before updating the state.

One such incident (with incorrect end-block in a checkpoint) had occurred in the mumbai network due to which we had to roll out this fix and update the checkpoint details on 2021-10-06 on mumbai network.

Instructions to Upgrade Mainnet Heimdall:

  1. Navigate to heimdall directory
cd ~/heimdall
  1. Checkout to the new release tag:
git fetch
git checkout v0.2.3
  1. Build:
make install
  1. Restart Services:
sudo service heimdalld restart
sudo service heimdalld-rest-server restart
sudo service heimdalld-bridge restart

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you.

I’ve got one question only…
Are there any updates about EIP-1559? Everyone from the team seem to be quite about it, even though it has been brought up many times in Reddit, Twitter and even Crowdcast.

It’s not the end of the world if it’s getting postponed but it would be nice to have an update.
