GRIDNET Core 1.5.3 Release Notes

GRIDNET Core 1.5.3 Release Notes



We are pleased to announce the release of GRIDNET Core 1.5.3, marking another significant step forward in our journey to refine and enhance the world’s first fully decentralized operating system. This release includes critical updates aimed at improving security, performance, and stability.

Major Updates and Improvements

Security Enhancements

  • Enhanced Bootstrapping Security: The net -boot -only GridScript command has been updated to terminate both QUIC and UDT connections upon invocation, enhancing security during the critical initial bootstrapping phase by enforcing network self-isolation.

Performance Optimization

  • Cold Storage Refactoring: We have refactored the initialization mechanics of our Cold Storage system, which uses the latest RocksDB, to better handle edge case scenarios and improve overall stability and performance.
  • Synchronization Mechanics Overhaul: Extensive performance evaluations, including mutex congestion analysis and differential memory snapshot analysis, have been conducted. These have significantly improved synchronization performance, achieving speeds over 800 blocks per minute and reducing average memory usage during resynchronization to below 3GB.

ACID Flow Mechanics

  • Robust Transaction Integrity: Enhancements in our implementation of ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability) principles ensure that the system can robustly handle and revert changes due to invalid transactions, maintaining data integrity at all times.

Connectivity and Mobile App Interaction

  • Mobile App Connectivity: Improvements have been made to ensure smoother and more stable connectivity between GRIDNET Core and the mobile application, facilitating better user experience and interaction.

Blockchain Integrity and Security

  • Blockchain Audit and Attack Mitigation: A comprehensive audit of the blockchain up to the current Event’s Horizon has been performed, identifying and mitigating various attack vectors. This proactive approach has further hardened our system against external threats.

Advanced Diagnostic Tools

  • Cross Fork Analysis Layer: A new diagnostic layer provides detailed logs (found in integrity.txt within the AppData\Roaming\GRIDNET\stats folder), offering in-depth analysis of processing discrepancies across forks. This includes decompiled GridScript code and full stack dumps, enhancing transparency and aiding in troubleshooting and system verification.

User Experience Enhancements

  • Chain Cutting Mechanics: Operators can now use the chain -cut command to specify a starting block for resynchronization, reducing downtime and data processing requirements during system updates or recoveries.

Future-Focused Additions

  • AI Integration Preparations: Initial steps have been taken to incorporate AI functionalities within GRIDNET OS, with the groundwork laid for future exposure of large language model neural network processing capabilities.

Operational Updates

  • Nonce Handling Improvements: Enhanced handling of nonces to prevent double-spending incidents, reflecting our commitment to security and community protection.
  • On-Chain Address Validation: Improved mechanisms to prevent transactions to malformed addresses, safeguarding user assets from common input errors.

Upcoming Features

  • Mobile App Enhancements: Planned updates for the mobile app include enabling node selection directly from the interface, enhancing user control and customization.
  • Extended JSON Outputs: Future releases will include additional data in the JSON output of the getBalance command, such as unlock times for better fund management.


GRIDNET Core 1.5.3 represents a blend of robust technological advancements and user-focused enhancements. As we continue to push the boundaries of decentralized technology, we invite our community of users and developers to download the latest version and participate in refining and expanding the capabilities of GRIDNET OS.
