New Release 4.4.0
zcashd can now be configured to optionally expose an HTTP server that acts as a Prometheus scrape endpoint. The server will respond to GET requests on any request path.
Unified addresses in Zcash explained
UAs make Zcash easier to use by removing the complexity of multiple address types. This simplifies the user experience — no more juggling addresses — and increases interoperability between shielded-only applications and transparent-only applications.
Halo Arc for Zcash proposed for release later this year
NU5 will move Zcash to the Halo proving system, representing the continual evolution of our zk-SNARK technology stack. Unified addresses introduce a future-proof address format that prioritizes shielded adoption.
