We’re happy to announce the third Beta release for Corda 5. In this release, we’ve been adding some new features and resolved some issues. Please give the new version a try – your input is important. Don’t hesitate to share your feedback in the forum.  

The next generation of Corda will be focussing on the areas of high availability, scalability, enhanced muti-tenancy and a boosted developer experience. Corda 5 Beta 3 is now available to the public. 

Cluster Administration

The Corda REST worker will now support Kubernetes Ingress. This means that the REST worker will now support HTTP load balancing. It will also enable optional annotations for additional integration. 

Network Operation

The notary server CPB is now signed with a signing key. This signing key is used to create the CPI and then the CPI is imported to Corda. 

Additionally, there are several metrics that are now available to provide you an insight into the uniqueness checking functionality provided by the notary.

CorDapp Development

The following new functions have been added to UtxoLedgerService

  • sendAndReceiveTransactionBuilder 
  • receiveTransactionBuilder 
  • sendUpdatedTransactionBuilder 

These functions enable negotiating proposals for transaction components between counterparties. For more information, see the API documentation.
