Features

  • client: Add async feature flag to use an asynchronous anchor-client (#2488).
  • spl: Add metadata wrappers approve_collection_authority, bubblegum_set_collection_size, burn_edition_nft, burn_nft, revoke_collection_authority, set_token_standard, utilize, unverify_sized_collection_item, unverify_collection (#2430)

  • bench: Add benchmarking for compute units usage (#2466)
  • cli: idl set-buffer, idl set-authority and idl close take an option --print-only. which prints transaction in a base64 Borsh compatible format but not sent to the cluster.

  • cli: Fix anchor new not updating Anchor.toml (#2516).
  • client, lang, spl: Allow wider range of dependency versions to reduce dependency issues (#2524).

Breaking

  • lang: Identifiers that are intended for internal usage(program_id, accounts, ix_data, remaining_accounts) have been renamed with __ prefix (#2464)
  • spl: Remove the metadata::create_metadata_account_v2 deprecated wrapper since it was removed from token metadata program (#2480)

[0.27.0] - 2023-03-08

Features

  • spl: Add MasterEditionAccount account deserialization to spl metadata (#2393).
  • lang: Add the InitSpace derive macro to automatically calculate the space at the initialization of an account (#2346).
  • cli: Add env option to verifiable builds (#2325).
  • cli: Add idl close command to close a program's IDL account (#2329).
  • cli: idl init now supports very large IDL files (#2329).
  • spl: Add transfer_checked function (#2353).
  • spl: Add approve_checked function (#2401).

  • cli: Add --arch sbf option to compile programs using cargo build-sbf (#2398).
  • land: Support multiple programs with the same interface using Interface and InterfaceAccount types, related to token-2022 (#2386).

Fixes

  • ts: Make the return type of AccountClient.fetchMultiple match the account type being fetched (#2390)
  • cli: Don't regenerate idl in read_all_programs(). (#2332).
  • ts: provider.simulate will send the transaction with sigVerify: false if no signers are present (#2331).
  • cli: Failing commands will return the correct exit status. (#2370).
  • idl: Update the IDL program to use non-deprecated account types (#2365).
  • ts: Enum fields weren't being converted from snake_case to camelCase (#2378).
  • lang/cli: Update to solana-program version 1.14.16 and rust version 1.60, appears to still be incompatible with 1.15 CLI (#2420).

Breaking

  • lang: Remove deprecated account types: CpiAccount, Loader and ProgramAccount (#2375).
  • lang: Remove state and interface attributes (#2285).
  • lang: Remove deprecated literal constraint which has been replaced by #[account(constraint = {})] (#2379).
  • lang: account(zero_copy) and zero_copy attributes now derive the bytemuck::Pod and bytemuck::Zeroable traits instead of using unsafe impl (#2330). This imposes useful restrictions on the type, like not having padding bytes and all fields being Pod themselves. See bytemuck::Pod for details. This change requires adding bytemuck = { version = "1.4.0", features = ["derive", "min_const_generics"]} to your cargo.toml. Legacy applications can still use #[account(zero_copy(unsafe))] and #[zero_copy(unsafe)] for the old behavior.
  • ts: Remove createProgramAddressSync, findProgramAddressSync (now available in @solana/web3.js) and update associatedAddress to be synchronous (#2357).

  • lang: Add support for optionally passing in accounts using the syntax Optional<Account<'info, T>>. Shouldn't affect existing programs but may be a breaking change to tools that use the anchor generated IDL. #2101.
  • ts: Switch from @project-serum/anchor to the @coral-xyz/anchor package #2318.

[0.23.0] - 2022-03-20

Features

  • cli: Add anchor clean command that's the same as cargo clean but preserves keypairs inside target/deploy (#1470).

  • lang: Adjust error code so #[error_code] works with just importing anchor_lang::error_code (#1610).
  • ts: Fix spl-token coder account parsing (#1604).

Fixes

  • cli: Fix rust template (#1488).

  • lang: Require doc comments when using AccountInfo or UncheckedAccount types (#1452).
  • lang: add error! and err! macro and Result type (#1462). This change will break most programs. Do the following to upgrade: _ change all ProgramResult's to Result<()> _ change #[error] to #[error_code] _ change all Err(MyError::SomeError.into()) to Err(error!(MyError::SomeError)) and all Err(ProgramError::SomeProgramError) to Err(ProgramError::SomeProgramError.into()) or Err(Error::from(ProgramError::SomeProgramError).with_source(source!())) to provide file and line source of the error (with_source is most useful with ProgramErrors. error! already adds source information for custom and anchor internal errors). _ change all solana_program::program::invoke() to solana_program::program::invoke().map_err(Into::into) and solana_program::program::invoke_signed() to solana_program::program::invoke_signed().map_err(Into::into)

[0.21.0] - 2022-02-07

Fixes

  • ts: Fix the root type declaration of the Wallet / NodeWallet class (#1363).
  • ts: Improve type mapping of Account fields into Typescript with additional support for Option<T> and Vec<String> types (#1393).

Features

  • lang: Add seeds::program constraint for specifying which program_id to use when deriving PDAs (#1197).
  • lang: Context now has a new bumps: BTree<String, u8> argument, mapping account name to bump seed "found" by the accounts context. This allows one to access bump seeds without having to pass them in from the client or recalculate them in the handler (#1367).
  • lang, ts: Automatically infer PDA addresses (#1331).
  • ts: Remove error logging in the event parser when log websocket encounters a program error (#1313).

  • lang: The Accounts trait's try_accounts method now has an additional bumps: &mut BTreeMap<String, u8> argument, which accumulates bump seeds (#1367).
  • lang: Providing bump = <target> targets with init will now error. On init only, it is required to use bump without a target and access the seed inside function handlers via ctx.bumps.get("<pda-account-name"). For subsequent seeds constraints (without init), it is recommended to store the bump on your account and use it as a bump = <target> target to minimize compute units used (#1380).
  • ts: Coder is now an interface and the existing class has been renamed to BorshCoder. This change allows the generation of Anchor clients for non anchor programs (#1259).
  • cli: [[test.clone]] key in Anchor.toml is renamed to [[test.validator.clone]] (#1366).

[0.20.1] - 2022-01-09

Fixes

  • ts: Change commitment message recent to processed and max to finalized (#1128)
  • ts: fix translateAddress which currently leads to failing browser code. Now uses PublicKey constructor instead of prototype chain constructor name checking which doesn't work in the presence of code minifying/mangling(#1138)
  • lang: add missing check that verifies that account is ATA when using init_if_needed and init is not needed(#1221)

Features

  • lang: Add programdata_address: Option<Pubkey> field to Program account. Will be populated if account is a program owned by the upgradable bpf loader (#1125)
  • lang,ts,ci,cli,docs: update solana toolchain to version 1.8.5(#1133).

  • lang: Handle arrays with const as length (#968).
  • ts: Add optional commitment argument to fetch and fetchMultiple (#1171).

  • lang: Add deprecated attribute to ProgramAccount (#1014).
  • cli: Add version number from programs Cargo.toml into extracted IDL (#1061).
  • lang: Add deprecated attribute to Loader(#1078).
  • lang: the init_if_needed attribute now checks that given attributes (e.g. space, owner, token::authority etc.) are validated even when init is not needed (#1096).

Features

  • lang: Add ErrorCode::AccountNotInitialized error to separate the situation when the account has the wrong owner from when it does not exist (#1024).
  • lang: Called instructions now log their name by default. This can be turned off with the no-log-ix-name flag (#1057).
  • lang: ProgramData and UpgradableLoaderState can now be passed into Account as generics. see UpgradeableLoaderState. UpgradableLoaderState can also be matched on to get ProgramData, but when ProgramData is used instead, anchor does the serialization and checking that it is actually program data for you (#1095).
  • ts: Add better error msgs in the ts client if something wrong (i.e. not a pubkey or a string) is passed in as an account in an instruction accounts object (#1098).
  • ts: Add inputs postInstructions and preInstructions as a replacement for (the now deprecated) instructions (#1007).
  • ts: Add getAccountInfo helper method to account namespace/client (#1084).
