Hello Onionoo users,
I just merged and deployed Onionoo protocol version 2.6 which adds two
new fields related to relay families and marks the current "family"
field as deprecated.
The idea of adding three fields for relay families is that we want to
support different use cases:
- Atlas and Globe want to list all relays that a relay has configured
as its family ("effective_family" + "alleged_family").
- Atlas and Globe may further want to mark ineffective family
relationships in red ("alleged_family") and effective family
relationships in blue ("effective_family").
- Roster needs a family definition that includes family members that
are either in a direct family relationship with a relay
("effective_family") or that can be reached by following effective
family relationships ("indirect_family").
The current "family" field will stay available until Atlas and Globe
are updated. If I should also wait for other clients to be updated,
please let me know. We shouldn't wait too long, because all those
fingerprints increase the size of Onionoo results for everyone.
All the best,
