0.5.0 (2018-11-13)

How to update your code:

  • Change every .call() to a .call("") and every .call(signature, a, b, c) to use .call(abi.encodeWithSignature(signature, a, b, c)) (the last one only works for value types).
  • Change every keccak256(a, b, c) to keccak256(abi.encodePacked(a, b, c)).
  • Add public to every function and external to every fallback or interface function that does not specify its visibility already.
  • Make your fallback functions external.
  • Explicitly state the data location for all variables of struct, array or mapping types (including function parameters), e.g. change uint[] x = m_x to uint[] storage x = m_x. Note that external functions require parameters with a data location of calldata.
  • Explicitly convert values of contract type to addresses before using an address member. Example: if c is a contract, change c.transfer(...) to address(c).transfer(...).
  • Declare variables and especially function arguments as address payable, if you want to call transfer on them.

Breaking Changes:

  • ABI Encoder: Properly pad data from calldata (msg.data and external function parameters). Use abi.encodePacked for unpadded encoding.
  • C API (libsolc / raw soljson.js): Removed the version, license, compileSingle, compileJSON, compileJSONCallback methods and replaced them with the solidity_license, solidity_version and solidity_compile methods.
  • Code Generator: Signed right shift uses proper arithmetic shift, i.e. rounding towards negative infinity. Warning: this may silently change the semantics of existing code!
  • Code Generator: Revert at runtime if calldata is too short or points out of bounds. This is done inside the ABI decoder and therefore also applies to abi.decode().
  • Code Generator: Use STATICCALL for pure and view functions. This was already the case in the experimental 0.5.0 mode.
  • Commandline interface: Remove obsolete --formal option.
  • Commandline interface: Rename the --julia option to --yul.
  • Commandline interface: Require - if standard input is used as source.
  • Commandline interface: Use hash of library name for link placeholder instead of name itself.
  • Compiler interface: Disallow remappings with empty prefix.
  • Control Flow Analyzer: Consider mappings as well when checking for uninitialized return values.
  • Control Flow Analyzer: Turn warning about returning uninitialized storage pointers into an error.
  • General: continue in a do...while loop jumps to the condition (it used to jump to the loop body). Warning: this may silently change the semantics of existing code.
  • General: Disallow declaring empty structs.
  • General: Disallow raw callcode (was already deprecated in 0.4.12). It is still possible to use it via inline assembly.
  • General: Disallow var keyword.
  • General: Disallow sha3 and suicide aliases.

  • General: Introduce emit as a keyword instead of parsing it as identifier.
  • General: New keywords: calldata and constructor
  • General: New reserved keywords: alias, apply, auto, copyof, define, immutable, implements, macro, mutable, override, partial, promise, reference, sealed, sizeof, supports, typedef and unchecked.
  • General: Remove assembly instruction aliases sha3 and suicide
  • General: C99-style scoping rules are enforced now. This was already the case in the experimental 0.5.0 mode.
  • General: Disallow combining hex numbers with unit denominations (e.g. 0x1e wei). This was already the case in the experimental 0.5.0 mode.
  • JSON AST: Remove constant and payable fields (the information is encoded in the stateMutability field).
  • JSON AST: Replace the isConstructor field by a new kind field, which can be constructor, fallback or function.
  • Interface: Remove "clone contract" feature. The --clone-bin and --combined-json clone-bin commandline options are not available anymore.

  • Type Checker: Disallow empty tuple components. This was partly already the case in the experimental 0.5.0 mode.
  • Type Checker: Disallow multi-variable declarations with mismatching number of values. This was already the case in the experimental 0.5.0 mode.

  • Type System: Distinguish between payable and non-payable address types.

  • Build System: Fixes to allow library compilation.

0.4.0 (2016-09-08)

This release deliberately breaks backwards compatibility mostly to enforce some safety features. The most important change is that you have to explicitly specify if functions can receive ether via the payable modifier. Furthermore, more situations cause exceptions to be thrown.

Minimal changes to be made for upgrade:

  • Add payable to all functions that want to receive Ether (including the constructor and the fallback function).
  • Change _ to _; in modifiers.
  • Add version pragma to each file: pragma solidity ^0.4.0;

Breaking Changes:

  • Source files have to specify the compiler version they are compatible with using e.g. pragma solidity ^0.4.0; or pragma solidity >=0.4.0 <0.4.8;
  • Functions that want to receive Ether have to specify the new payable modifier (otherwise they throw).
  • Contracts that want to receive Ether with a plain "send" have to implement a fallback function with the payable modifier. Contracts now throw if no payable fallback function is defined and no function matches the signature.
  • Failing contract creation through "new" throws.
  • Division / modulus by zero throws.
  • Function call throws if target contract does not have code
  • Modifiers are required to contain _ (use if (false) _ as a workaround if needed).
  • Modifiers: return does not skip part in modifier after _.
  • Placeholder statement _ in modifier now requires explicit ;.
  • ecrecover now returns zero if the input is malformed (it previously returned garbage).
  • The constant keyword cannot be used for constructors or the fallback function.
  • Removed --interface (Solidity interface) output option
  • JSON AST: General cleanup, renamed many nodes to match their C++ names.
  • JSON output: srcmap-runtime renamed to srcmapRuntime.
  • Moved (and reworked) standard library contracts from inside the compiler to github.com/ethereum/solidity/std (import "std"; or import owned; do not work anymore).
  • Confusing and undocumented keyword after was removed.
  • New reserved words: abstract, hex, interface, payable, pure, static, view.

Features:

  • Hexadecimal string literals: hex"ab1248fe"
  • Internal: Inline assembly usable by the code generator.
  • Commandline interface: Using - as filename allows reading from stdin.
  • Interface JSON: Fallback function is now part of the ABI.
  • Interface: Version string now semver compatible.
  • Code generator: Do not provide "new account gas" if we know the called account exists.

Bugfixes:

  • JSON AST: Nodes were added at wrong parent
  • Why3 translator: Crash fix for exponentiation
  • Commandline Interface: linking libraries with underscores in their name.
  • Type Checker: Fallback function cannot return data anymore.
  • Code Generator: Fix crash when sha3() was used on unsupported types.
  • Code Generator: Manually set gas stipend for .send(0).

Lots of changes to the documentation mainly by voluntary external contributors.

Bugfixes:
