Transient Storage Opcodes in Solidity 0.8.24

Posted by Solidity Team on January 26, 2024

Explainers

Solidity 0.8.24 supports the opcodes included in the upcoming Cancun hardfork and, in particular, the transient storage opcodes TSTORE and TLOAD as per EIP-1153. Transient storage is a long-awaited feature on the EVM level that introduces another data location besides memory, storage, calldata (and return-data and code). The new data location behaves as a key-value store similar to storage with the main difference being that data in transient storage is not permanent, but is scoped to the current transaction only, after which...

Bug in Deduplication of Verbatim Blocks

Posted by Solidity Team on November 8, 2023

Security Alerts

On October 24, Ori Pomerantz reported a bug affecting the use of verbatim builtin in Yul code. After investigating, the team was able to confirm the problem and locate its origin. The bug existed in the Block Deduplicator optimizer step, wherein equivalent assembly blocks are identified and merged. verbatim assembly items surrounded by identical opcodes were incorrectly considered identical and unified. The bug existed since version 0.8.5, which introduced verbatim, and only affected pure Yul compilation with optimization enabled. Solidity code or Yul used in inline assembly blocks would...

Solidity 0.8.23 Release Announcement

Posted by Solidity Team on November 8, 2023

Releases

Today, we announce the release of the Solidity Compiler v0.8.23. This newest version of the compiler is meant to be a pure bugfix release that includes the fix for an important bug of low severity. Based on our investigations, we do not foresee real-world instances of the bug being used as an exploit or an attack vector and thus, we assess its overall severity as low. This version also introduces a small change to optimizer settings to make them more intuitive. Since v0.8.21,...

Solidity 0.8.22 Release Announcement

Posted by Solidity Team on October 25, 2023

Releases

We are excited to announce the release of the Solidity Compiler v0.8.22. This newest version of the compiler includes a range of language as well as compiler improvements such as file-level event definitions, optimizations for unchecked loop increments, support for importing EVM assembly JSON, & more. Important Note This release deprecates support for EVM versions older than Constantinople, which are becoming increasingly hard to maintain. These ancient versions have long been obsolete on the Ethereum mainnet and testnets and we suspect that they are no...
