Blockdaemon will update Westend, Kusama and Polkadot nodes to Sidecar API v16.0.0 on 05/15/23. We are updating our nodes due to a release from the Parity foundation. This update applies to all Blockdaemon Westend, Kusama and Polkadot nodes, there will be planned downtime of up to 10 minutes per node.

We have tested the release and do not anticipate any unexpected downtime other than mentioned above as a result of the update. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to your Technical Account Manager.

Please note, this release does include breaking changes as listed below -

fix!: removes metadata v13 (#1272) (287d8e3)
NOTE: This removes adjustMetadataV13 query parameter from /pallets/{palletId}/storage.

fix!: remove noMeta query param from /transaction/materials (#1275) (1d20501)
NOTE: This removes noMeta from /transaction/materials. Please refer to the PR for more information.

fix!: minimum nodejs version (#1278) (05628da)
NOTE: We want this library to be in sync with polkadot-js so it's important for us to also be in line with node-js versions. The version we specify is a minimum of v18.14.
