The Fantom Foundation announced via a blog post on Monday that it had released its go-opera version 1.1.2-rc.5 mainnet update. Some of the upgrades in this release include; P2P and events/blocks processing has been significantly improved, Genesis file processing is up to 3 times faster, searching logs is now five times faster, and each log search should take only 1/5 of the time it took before.
This upgrade includes a security improvement for Opera node, such as stricter conditions for starting LLR and txpool syncing, restricting P2P connections to given IPs. The upgrade also forbids unlocking accounts when external RPC is enabled.
