Solana Tech Roundup

This past week there have been some major changes to make it into the master branch, most notably the ability to prioritize transactions by compute price. The transaction-wide compute cap feature is scheduled to start activation on 05/23. You can both request additional fee payment on transactions and use the new compute cap in Devnet today.

Change Highlight

Dynamic Account Sizing

This past week the account realloc feature went live on mainnet-beta.

What does this mean?

You can now dynamically change your program owned account sizes when after creation. Historically the account sizes were static and only could be changed by closing and reopening. You can change the account size by calling realloc on the accountInfo struct.

A guide and more info can be found here.
