On May 24, 2019, Multi-Geth released its v1.9.0, which is considered as a landmark move, and this version is made as par the master branch, which is parallel to Ethereum/ Go-Ethereum.

The version included some various enhancements specific to Multi-Geth, which makes it not a near-direct follow up of its upstream dedicated version 1.8.0 release branch.

The changelog

  • It added support for Open RPC’s Service Discover method
  • Changed client’s name’ from Geth to MultiGeth, which will differentiate client name advertisements in the DEVP2P Wire protocol, and also, it can be seen through the web3.clientVersion RPC method.

However, the release didn’t address the much-demanded issue asked on February 2, 2020, on Github.

The request was to make the Multi-Geth syn ETC (Ethereum Classic) by default.

The big idea behind the request was that the Ethereum classic mostly utilized Multi-Geth. Making it default will turn out to be easy than manually setting it and why making It default it doesn’t have to change the folder structure as Ethereum uses ~/.ethereum by default. Ethereum classic uses ~/.ethereum/classic by default.

The feature took more than a year and finally landed on February 28, 2020, multigeth v1.9.10 on GitHub.

This was first addressed on the version 1.8.23 of Multi-Geth on February 23, 2019, the syncing issue was persistent, and now in the latest update, they again focused on the syncing issue with ETC.

Syncing MultiGeth with Ethereum Classic should not be that tough with the 1.9 version as it is a parallel branch to Ethereum go.

MultiGeth with this latest release not only fixes the syncing issue with Ethereum classic but fixes network checkpoint and checkpoint oracles.

MethGeth is open-source, and its repository can be found in Github with all its previous releases. It is compatible with Windows, OSX, and Linux.
