Dfx 0.9.3 is promoted

Release notes: Highlights of what’s new in 0.9.3 :: Internet Computer

The main changes were to update these dependencies:

  • Replica to blessed commit d004accc3904e24dddb13a11d93451523e1a8a5f
  • Motoko to 0.6.25
  • icx-proxy, which is now static-linked

Is there a change log for motoko?

does this mean I need to change my implementation of my streaming strategy or will it just start streaming chunks again? I am using an implementation similar to this non-fungible-token/http.mo at main · DepartureLabsIC/non-fungible-token · GitHub and are replicas currently running these changes

Unfortunately, when I upgrade and run dfx start in 0.9.3, it now no longer respects the networks.local.bind IP address + port combo that I specify in my dfx.json, and instead picks a random port…

In fact, the first line of dfx start is now:

binding to:

My dfx.json contains this:

  "dfx": "0.9.3",
  "networks": {
    "local": {
      "bind": "",
      "type": "ephemeral"

Another issue is when I ctrl+C in a terminal with a running dfx start. It takes more than a minute to stop the replica and return control back to the user. I don’t know why it takes so long…

That’s the dfx internal webserver, which is only used to serve candid interfaces.

Later on, you should see something like this, which corresponds to your bind address:

 Mar 24 10:17:01.427 INFO Log Level: INFO
 Mar 24 10:17:01.428 INFO Starting server. Listening on

I just ran that, and then edited dfx.json to change the port to 8003, after which:

 Mar 24 10:17:25.716 INFO Log Level: INFO
 Mar 24 10:17:25.717 INFO Starting server. Listening on

Ah the issue was that I didn’t run dfx start --clean. Sorry for the trouble.
