Hello Devs!

We are excited to announce the release of Horizon 2.0!  Download it and read the full release notes here: https://github.com/stellar/go/releases/tag/horizon-v2.0.0

This major release has been years in the making, and it makes life a lot easier for anyone who runs Stellar infrastructure.  Now, if you want to run Horizon — the Stellar API — to submit transactions and query network data, you don't have to run a separate instance of Stellar Core.  Because Horizon 2.0 includes a built-in "Captive Stellar Core" that can process transactions in-memory:   

  • Disk space requirements have been vastly reduced (by 100s of GBs)!
  • Ingestion is now orders of magnitude faster (weeks -> a day), meaning…
  • The Horizon database is no longer precious: it can be rebuilt quickly!
  • There’s no separate Stellar Core instance to manage, meaning…
  • No more database requirements for Stellar Core!
For more information, check out the Horizon 2.0 blog post or jump directly to the migration guide to get started.

If you have any questions, let me know.
