Solidity To Launch Compiler Version 0.8.20

Key Points:

  • The Ethereum programming language Solidity released version 0.8.20 of the Solidity compiler.
  • The latest version includes a series of improvements to the via-IR pipeline, improves the event list exposed in the contract ABI, and supports the Shanghai hard fork upgrade.
  • This compiler switches the default target EVM version to the Shanghai version.
The Ethereum programming language Solidity has published version 0.8.20 of the Solidity compiler, according to the official blog.

The most recent version adds a number of changes to the via-IR pipeline, as well as enhancements to the event list disclosed in the contract ABI and support for the Shanghai hard fork update.

This compiler changes the default target EVM version to Shanghai, which means that the resulting bytecode has PUSH0 opcodes. If you plan to deploy on a chain other than mainnet, such as L2 networks that may not yet support PUSH0, be sure to choose the right EVM version; otherwise, contract deployment will fail.

Another new feature for tool developers is the ability to import JSON ASTs using SolidityAST as the input language through the Standard JSON interface. The user just follows the installation instructions in the manual to update to the current version of the Solidity Compiler.

DApps, or Decentralized Applications, are apps developed on the Ethereum Blockchain’s open-source, peer-to-peer network, which employs smart contracts and front-end user interfaces to construct decentralized platforms.

Creating a dApp, like any other software, involves programming and system execution. Solidity programming is distinct from other programming languages and is the preferred programming language in Ethereum.

Solidity is an object-oriented programming language developed by the Ethereum Network team primarily for building and developing smart contracts on Blockchain systems. It is presently the fundamental language for Ethereum and other rival systems, such as Monax and its Hyperledger Burrow blockchain, which utilizes Tendermint for consensus.

The programming, like other programming languages, features variables, functions, classes, arithmetic operations, string manipulation, and many more notions.
