A new release of BDK is out:
v0.5.0 (opens new window) is our first release licensed under Apache 2.0 and MIT, brings new features, bugfixes and some internal refactoring.
You can find the full v0.5.0 changelog (opens new window) on GitHub.
# What's new in v0.5.0
Below are some highlights of the new release:
# Dual Licensing
From now on BDK will be released under both Apache 2.0 and MIT, at your discretion. This change aligns our project with many other Rust crates and reiterates our commitment to a permissive licensing model.
# Spending foreign UTXOs
This release adds a new
TxBuilder method called
add_foreign_utxo() (opens new window), which can be used to spend UTXOs that don't belong to the
Wallet. We think this is going to be very useful to developers working on multiparty
protocols like CoinJoins, Pay Join, etc.
It's as easy as giving the library a PSBT input and the satisfaction cost for that input:
let mut builder = wallet.build_tx(); builder .add_recipient(addr.script_pubkey(), 60_000) .add_foreign_utxo(foreign_utxo.outpoint, foreign_utxo_psbt_input, foreign_utxo_satisfaction_weight)?
A huge thanks to everybody who contributed to this new release with suggestions, pull requests and bug reports.
