Breaking changes in the upcoming Tendermint 0.33
As the launch is already delayed because of #8 (closed), we may consider waiting until Tendermint 0.33 (a.k.a. 0.32.9) is released. The
CHANGELOG_PENDING.MD file on the current master branch contains many breaking changes, out of which at least one sounds nice: “blocks are significantly smaller”. Judging by the upgrade instructions for Cosmos, upgrading between incompatible Tendermint releases is not smooth and includes downtime. Basically a new chain is started using a state snapshot from the old chain. This includes resetting block height, at least until issue #2534 is resolved.
Milestone v0.33.0 currently contains 5 open issues.
