Zebra 1.3.0 Release

The Zcash Foundation is happy to announce the release of Zebra version 1.3.0, which now includes support for the Spend before Sync algorithm for lightwalletd. 

This means that a Zebra-backed lightwalletd server can now query Zebra using the new and updated RPC methods for the Spend before Sync light wallet feature.

One other notable feature released in this version is the ability to enable progress bars in Zebra‚Äôs config file. When progress bars are enabled, users will be able to see Zebra’s blocks, transactions and peer connections in their terminal. 

We would like Zebra users to test out this new feature and give us feedback on the forums.
