Version 7.0 notably introduces the multinetwork node.
Version 7.1 fixes a few compilation issues that users encountered with version 7.0, and fixes a few client commands.
Version 7.2 fixes an issue that could cause baking to fail when validating some smart contracts, and fixes how arguments are passed by the tezos-docker-manager.sh script when using Docker images.
Version 7.3 fixes a couple of security issues.
Version 7.4 adds the Delphi protocol and the Delphinet built-in network configuration.

To update from sources:
git checkout v7.5
eval $(opam env)
If you are using Docker instead, use the
v7.5 Docker images of Tezos.
New Versioning Scheme¶
Starting from this release, we are using a new versioning scheme to name our releases. Each release is now named “Version X.Y” where X is the major version number and Y is the minor version number. Minor releases mostly backport bug fixes into previous major releases.
Before releasing a new major version, we publish release candidates. For instance, before releasing 7.0 we published 7.0~rc1, the first release candidate for version 7.0. Once release candidates have been out long enough to be sufficiently tested and are considered stable, we publish actual releases. For instance, 7.0~rc1 was published April 15th 2020, and 7.0 was published May 5th 2020.
Additionnally, we provide a
latest-release branch which will always
be equal to the latest release. Release candidates are not considered
to be releases in this sense, so
latest-release will never
point to a release candidate. In other words,
to the latest stable release. Currently, it thus points to version 7.5.
If you are used to the
you can consider release candidates to be the new
branches, and the
latest-release branch to be the new
Note for Remote Signer Users¶
Note for users of
tezos-signer: the 7.0 (or above) client, baker, endorser
and accuser need the 7.0 signer (or above) to work. They are in particular not
compatible with the
mainnet version of
tezos-signer. So remember to
update your remote signer too!
The node can now be used with any network, including Mainnet (the default network) and test networks such as Carthagenet or even custom ones. See the Connecting to a Network documentation page for more information.
Thanks to this, the same release can be used for all networks
instead of having one branch per network. This allows to name this release
Version 7.0 instead of Mainnet April 2020, as releases are no longer tied to Mainnet.
If you are following the
mainnet branch, you should instead follow the
