Sia v1.0 Launches!

  • After 2.5 years of development, and over a year of beta, we are proud to announce Sia version 1.

    Version 1.0.0 Graphical Client

    Version 1.0.0 Command Line Client

    With the version 1 release, we are committing to preserving siad API compatibility. This means that third party developers can begin making apps that integrate with the current Sia daemon and expect that as future versions of the daemon are released, their users can upgrade without worrying about breaking the plugins or alternate apps that they are dependent on.

    There are also a number of important security updates, including fixing a DoS vector, making siad more safe for miners out-of-the-box, fixing a security vulnerability in the host that would allow the renter to drain host funds for free. Some of these security issues are significant, so we strongly recommend that everyone update to v1.0 as fast as possible.

    We are going to be spending the next week observing the ecosystem, getting community feedback, and figuring out what our most important priorities should be. Some of the things that will potentially appear on our roadmap includes more guides, more business development, improved wallet interactions (instant unlocking, better seed loading, deep seed scanning), siafunds on exchanges, more physical-world meetups, and of course general improvements to the Sia technology.

    The team is looking forward to working with the community and beyond to build a better Sia and a more decentralized world.
