Migration notes

Aztec is in full-speed development. Literally every version breaks compatibility with the previous ones. This page attempts to target errors and difficulties you might encounter when upgrading, and how to resolve them.

0.33

[Aztec.nr] Storage struct annotation

The storage struct now identified by the annotation #[aztec(storage)], instead of having to rely on it being called Storage.

- struct Storage {
- ...
- }
+ #[aztec(storage)]
+ struct MyStorageStruct {
+ ...
+ }

[Aztec.js] Storage layout and note info

Storage layout and note information are now exposed in the TS contract artifact

- const note = new Note([new Fr(mintAmount), secretHash]);
- const pendingShieldStorageSlot = new Fr(5n); // storage slot for pending_shields
- const noteTypeId = new Fr(84114971101151129711410111011678111116101n); // note type id for TransparentNote
- const extendedNote = new ExtendedNote(
- note,
- admin.address,
- token.address,
- pendingShieldStorageSlot,
- noteTypeId,
- receipt.txHash,
- );
- await pxe.addNote(extendedNote);
+ const note = new Note([new Fr(mintAmount), secretHash]);
+ const extendedNote = new ExtendedNote(
+ note,
+ admin.address,
+ token.address,
+ TokenContract.storage.pending_shields.slot,
+ TokenContract.notes.TransparentNote.id,
+ receipt.txHash,
+ );
+ await pxe.addNote(extendedNote);

[Aztec.nr] rand oracle is now called unsafe_rand

oracle::rand::rand has been renamed to oracle::unsafe_rand::unsafe_rand. This change was made to communicate that we do not constrain the value in circuit and instead we just trust our PXE.

- let random_value = rand();
+ let random_value = unsafe_rand();

[AztecJS] Simulate and get return values for ANY call and introducing prove()

Historically it have been possible to "view" unconstrained functions to simulate them and get the return values, but not for public nor private functions. This has lead to a lot of bad code where we have the same function implemented thrice, once in private, once in public and once in unconstrained. It is not possible to call simulate on any call to get the return values! However, beware that it currently always returns a Field array of size 4 for private and public.
This will change to become similar to the return values of the unconstrained functions with proper return types.

-    #[aztec(private)]
- fn get_shared_immutable_constrained_private() -> pub Leader {
- storage.shared_immutable.read_private()
- }
-
- unconstrained fn get_shared_immutable() -> pub Leader {
- storage.shared_immutable.read_public()
- }

+ #[aztec(private)]
+ fn get_shared_immutable_private() -> pub Leader {
+ storage.shared_immutable.read_private()
+ }

- const returnValues = await contract.methods.get_shared_immutable().view();
+ const returnValues = await contract.methods.get_shared_immutable_private().simulate();
await expect(
- asset.withWallet(wallets[1]).methods.update_admin(newAdminAddress).simulate()).rejects.toThrow(
+ asset.withWallet(wallets[1]).methods.update_admin(newAdminAddress).prove()).rejects.toThrow(
"Assertion failed: caller is not admin 'caller_roles.is_admin'",
);

0.31.0

[Aztec.nr] Public storage historical read API improvement

history::public_value_inclusion::prove_public_value_inclusion has been renamed to history::public_storage::public_storage_historical_read, and its API changed slightly. Instead of receiving a value parameter it now returns the historical value stored at that slot.

If you were using an oracle to get the value to pass to prove_public_value_inclusion, drop the oracle and use the return value from public_storage_historical_read instead:

- let value = read_storage();
- prove_public_value_inclusion(value, storage_slot, contract_address, context);
+ let value = public_storage_historical_read(storage_slot, contract_address, context);

If you were proving historical existence of a value you got via some other constrained means, perform an assertion against the return value of public_storage_historical_read instead:

- prove_public_value_inclusion(value, storage_slot, contract_address, context);
+ assert(public_storage_historical_read(storage_slot, contract_address, context) == value);

0.30.0

[AztecJS] Simplify authwit syntax

- const messageHash = computeAuthWitMessageHash(accounts[1].address, action.request());
- await wallets[0].setPublicAuth(messageHash, true).send().wait();
+ await wallets[0].setPublicAuthWit({ caller: accounts[1].address, action }, true).send().wait();
const action = asset
.withWallet(wallets[1])
.methods.unshield(accounts[0].address, accounts[1].address, amount, nonce);
-const messageHash = computeAuthWitMessageHash(accounts[1].address, action.request());
-const witness = await wallets[0].createAuthWitness(messageHash);
+const witness = await wallets[0].createAuthWit({ caller: accounts[1].address, action });
await wallets[1].addAuthWitness(witness);

Also note some of the naming changes: setPublicAuth -> setPublicAuthWit createAuthWitness -> createAuthWit

[Aztec.nr] Automatic NoteInterface implementation and selector changes

Implementing a note required a fair amount of boilerplate code, which has been substituted by the #[aztec(note)] attribute.

+ #[aztec(note)]
struct AddressNote {
address: AztecAddress,
owner: AztecAddress,
randomness: Field,
header: NoteHeader
}

impl NoteInterface<ADDRESS_NOTE_LEN> for AddressNote {
- fn serialize_content(self) -> [Field; ADDRESS_NOTE_LEN]{
- [self.address.to_field(), self.owner.to_field(), self.randomness]
- }
-
- fn deserialize_content(serialized_note: [Field; ADDRESS_NOTE_LEN]) -> Self {
- AddressNote {
- address: AztecAddress::from_field(serialized_note[0]),
- owner: AztecAddress::from_field(serialized_note[1]),
- randomness: serialized_note[2],
- header: NoteHeader::empty(),
- }
- }
-
- fn compute_note_content_hash(self) -> Field {
- pedersen_hash(self.serialize_content(), 0)
- }
-
fn compute_nullifier(self, context: &mut PrivateContext) -> Field {
let note_hash_for_nullify = compute_note_hash_for_consumption(self);
let secret = context.request_nullifier_secret_key(self.owner);
pedersen_hash([
note_hash_for_nullify,
secret.low,
secret.high,
],0)
}

fn compute_nullifier_without_context(self) -> Field {
let note_hash_for_nullify = compute_note_hash_for_consumption(self);
let secret = get_nullifier_secret_key(self.owner);
pedersen_hash([
note_hash_for_nullify,
secret.low,
secret.high,
],0)
}

- fn set_header(&mut self, header: NoteHeader) {
- self.header = header;
- }
-
- fn get_header(note: Self) -> NoteHeader {
- note.header
- }

fn broadcast(self, context: &mut PrivateContext, slot: Field) {
let encryption_pub_key = get_public_key(self.owner);
emit_encrypted_log(
context,
(*context).this_address(),
slot,
Self::get_note_type_id(),
encryption_pub_key,
self.serialize_content(),
);
}

- fn get_note_type_id() -> Field {
- 6510010011410111511578111116101
- }
}

Automatic note (de)serialization implementation also means it is now easier to filter notes using NoteGetterOptions.select via the ::properties() helper:

Before:

let options = NoteGetterOptions::new().select(0, amount, Option::none()).select(1, owner.to_field(), Option::none()).set_limit(1);

After:

let options = NoteGetterOptions::new().select(ValueNote::properties().value, amount, Option::none()).select(ValueNote::properties().owner, owner.to_field(), Option::none()).set_limit(1);

The helper returns a metadata struct that looks like this (if autogenerated)

ValueNoteProperties {
value: PropertySelector { index: 0, offset: 0, length: 32 },
owner: PropertySelector { index: 1, offset: 0, length: 32 },
randomness: PropertySelector { index: 2, offset: 0, length: 32 },
}

It can also be used for the .sort method.

0.27.0

initializer macro replaces constructor

Before this version, every contract was required to have exactly one constructor private function, that was used for deployment. We have now removed this requirement, and made constructor a function like any other.

To signal that a function can be used to initialize a contract, you must now decorate it with the #[aztec(initializer)] attribute. Initializers are regular functions that set an "initialized" flag (a nullifier) for the contract. A contract can only be initialized once, and contract functions can only be called after the contract has been initialized, much like a constructor. However, if a contract defines no initializers, it can be called at any time. Additionally, you can define as many initializer functions in a contract as you want, both private and public.

To migrate from current code, simply add an initializer attribute to your constructor functions.

+ #[aztec(initializer)]
#[aztec(private)]
fn constructor() { ... }

If your private constructor was used to just call a public internal initializer, then remove the private constructor and flag the public function as initializer. And if your private constructor was an empty one, just remove it.

0.25.0

[Aztec.nr] Static calls

It is now possible to perform static calls from both public and private functions. Static calls forbid any modification to the state, including L2->L1 messages or log generation. Once a static context is set through a static all, every subsequent call will also be treated as static via context propagation.

context.static_call_private_function(targetContractAddress, targetSelector, args);

context.static_call_public_function(targetContractAddress, targetSelector, args);

[Aztec.nr] Introduction to prelude

A new prelude module to include common Aztec modules and types. This simplifies dependency syntax. For example:

use dep::aztec::protocol_types::address::AztecAddress;
use dep::aztec::{
context::{PrivateContext, Context}, note::{note_header::NoteHeader, utils as note_utils},
state_vars::Map
};

Becomes:

use dep::aztec::prelude::{AztecAddress, NoteHeader, PrivateContext, Map};
use dep::aztec::context::Context;
use dep::aztec::notes::utils as note_utils;

This will be further simplified in future versions (See 4496 for further details).

The prelude consists of

prelude
use dep::protocol_types::{address::{AztecAddress, EthAddress}, abis::function_selector::FunctionSelector};
use crate::{
state_vars::{
map::Map, private_immutable::PrivateImmutable, private_mutable::PrivateMutable,
public_immutable::PublicImmutable, public_mutable::PublicMutable, private_set::PrivateSet,
shared_immutable::SharedImmutable, storage::Storable
},
log::{emit_unencrypted_log, emit_encrypted_log}, context::PrivateContext,
note::{
note_header::NoteHeader, note_interface::NoteInterface, note_getter_options::NoteGetterOptions,
note_viewer_options::NoteViewerOptions,
utils::compute_note_hash_and_nullifier as utils_compute_note_hash_and_nullifier
}
};
Source code: noir-projects/aztec-nr/aztec/src/prelude.nr#L1-L16

internal is now a macro

The internal keyword is now removed from Noir, and is replaced by an aztec(internal) attribute in the function. The resulting behavior is exactly the same: these functions will only be callable from within the same contract.

Before:

#[aztec(private)]
internal fn double(input: Field) -> Field {
input * 2
}

After:

#[aztec(private)]
#[aztec(internal)]
fn double(input: Field) -> Field {
input * 2
}

[Aztec.nr] No SafeU120 anymore!

Noir now have overflow checks by default. So we don't need SafeU120 like libraries anymore.

You can replace it with U128 instead

Before:

SafeU120::new(0)

Now:

U128::from_integer(0)

[Aztec.nr] compute_note_hash_and_nullifier is now autogenerated

Historically developers have been required to include a compute_note_hash_and_nullifier function in each of their contracts. This function is now automatically generated, and all instances of it in contract code can be safely removed.

It is possible to provide a user-defined implementation, in which case auto-generation will be skipped (though there are no known use cases for this).

[Aztec.nr] Updated naming of state variable wrappers

We have decided to change the naming of our state variable wrappers because the naming was not clear. The changes are as follows:

  1. Singleton -> PrivateMutable
  2. ImmutableSingleton -> PrivateImmutable
  3. StablePublicState -> SharedImmutable
  4. PublicState -> PublicMutable

This is the meaning of "private", "public" and "shared": Private: read (R) and write (W) from private, not accessible from public Public: not accessible from private, R/W from public Shared: R from private, R/W from public

Note: SlowUpdates will be renamed to SharedMutable once the implementation is ready.

[Aztec.nr] Authwit updates

Authentication Witnesses have been updates such that they are now cancellable and scoped to a specific consumer. This means that the authwit nullifier must be emitted from the account contract, which require changes to the interface. Namely, the assert_current_call_valid_authwit_public and assert_current_call_valid_authwit in auth.nr will NO LONGER emit a nullifier. Instead it will call a spend_*_authwit function in the account contract - which will emit the nullifier and perform a few checks. This means that the is_valid functions have been removed to not confuse it for a non-mutating function (static). Furthermore, the caller parameter of the "authwits" have been moved "further out" such that the account contract can use it in validation, allowing scoped approvals from the account POV. For most contracts, this won't be changing much, but for the account contract, it will require a few changes.

Before:

#[aztec(public)]
fn is_valid_public(message_hash: Field) -> Field {
let actions = AccountActions::public(&mut context, ACCOUNT_ACTIONS_STORAGE_SLOT, is_valid_impl);
actions.is_valid_public(message_hash)
}

#[aztec(private)]
fn is_valid(message_hash: Field) -> Field {
let actions = AccountActions::private(&mut context, ACCOUNT_ACTIONS_STORAGE_SLOT, is_valid_impl);
actions.is_valid(message_hash)
}

After:

#[aztec(private)]
fn spend_private_authwit(inner_hash: Field) -> Field {
let actions = AccountActions::private(&mut context, ACCOUNT_ACTIONS_STORAGE_SLOT, is_valid_impl);
actions.spend_private_authwit(inner_hash)
}

#[aztec(public)]
fn spend_public_authwit(inner_hash: Field) -> Field {
let actions = AccountActions::public(&mut context, ACCOUNT_ACTIONS_STORAGE_SLOT, is_valid_impl);
actions.spend_public_authwit(inner_hash)
}

0.24.0

Introduce Note Type IDs

Note Type IDs are a new feature which enable contracts to have multiple Maps with different underlying note types, something that was not possible before. This is done almost without any user intervention, though some minor changes are required.

The mandatory compute_note_hash_and_nullifier now has a fifth parameter note_type_id. Use this instead of storage_slot to determine which deserialization function to use.

Before:

unconstrained fn compute_note_hash_and_nullifier(
contract_address: AztecAddress,
nonce: Field,
storage_slot: Field,
preimage: [Field; TOKEN_NOTE_LEN]
) -> pub [Field; 4] {
let note_header = NoteHeader::new(contract_address, nonce, storage_slot);

if (storage_slot == storage.pending_shields.get_storage_slot()) {
note_utils::compute_note_hash_and_nullifier(TransparentNote::deserialize_content, note_header, preimage)
} else if (note_type_id == storage.slow_update.get_storage_slot()) {
note_utils::compute_note_hash_and_nullifier(FieldNote::deserialize_content, note_header, preimage)
} else {
note_utils::compute_note_hash_and_nullifier(TokenNote::deserialize_content, note_header, preimage)
}

Now:

unconstrained fn compute_note_hash_and_nullifier(
contract_address: AztecAddress,
nonce: Field,
storage_slot: Field,
note_type_id: Field,
preimage: [Field; TOKEN_NOTE_LEN]
) -> pub [Field; 4] {
let note_header = NoteHeader::new(contract_address, nonce, storage_slot);

if (note_type_id == TransparentNote::get_note_type_id()) {
note_utils::compute_note_hash_and_nullifier(TransparentNote::deserialize_content, note_header, preimage)
} else if (note_type_id == FieldNote::get_note_type_id()) {
note_utils::compute_note_hash_and_nullifier(FieldNote::deserialize_content, note_header, preimage)
} else {
note_utils::compute_note_hash_and_nullifier(TokenNote::deserialize_content, note_header, preimage)
}

The NoteInterface trait now has an additional get_note_type_id() function. This implementation will be autogenerated in the future, but for now providing any unique ID will suffice. The suggested way to do it is by running the Python command shown in the comment below:

impl NoteInterface<N> for MyCustomNote {
fn get_note_type_id() -> Field {
// python -c "print(int(''.join(str(ord(c)) for c in 'MyCustomNote')))"
771216711711511611110978111116101
}
}

[js] Importing contracts in JS

@aztec/noir-contracts is now @aztec/noir-contracts.js. You'll need to update your package.json & imports.

Before:

import { TokenContract } from "@aztec/noir-contracts/Token";

Now:

import { TokenContract } from "@aztec/noir-contracts.js/Token";

[Aztec.nr] aztec-nr contracts location change in Nargo.toml

Aztec contracts are now moved outside of the yarn-project folder and into noir-projects, so you need to update your imports.

Before:

easy_private_token_contract = {git = "https://github.com/AztecProtocol/aztec-packages/", tag ="v0.23.0", directory = "yarn-project/noir-contracts/contracts/easy_private_token_contract"}

Now, update the yarn-project folder for noir-projects:

easy_private_token_contract = {git = "https://github.com/AztecProtocol/aztec-packages/", tag ="v0.24.0", directory = "noir-projects/noir-contracts/contracts/easy_private_token_contract"}

0.22.0

Note::compute_note_hash renamed to Note::compute_note_content_hash

The compute_note_hash function in of the Note trait has been renamed to compute_note_content_hash to avoid being confused with the actual note hash.

Before:

impl NoteInterface for CardNote {
fn compute_note_hash(self) -> Field {
pedersen_hash([
self.owner.to_field(),
], 0)
}

Now:

impl NoteInterface for CardNote {
fn compute_note_content_hash(self) -> Field {
pedersen_hash([
self.owner.to_field(),
], 0)
}

Introduce compute_note_hash_for_consumption and compute_note_hash_for_insertion

Makes a split in logic for note hash computation for consumption and insertion. This is to avoid confusion between the two, and to make it clear that the note hash for consumption is different from the note hash for insertion (sometimes).

compute_note_hash_for_consumption replaces compute_note_hash_for_read_or_nullify. compute_note_hash_for_insertion is new, and mainly used in `lifecycle.nr``

Note::serialize_content and Note::deserialize_content added to `NoteInterface

The NoteInterface have been extended to include serialize_content and deserialize_content functions. This is to convey the difference between serializing the full note, and just the content. This change allows you to also add a serialize function to support passing in a complete note to a function.

Before:

impl Serialize<ADDRESS_NOTE_LEN> for AddressNote {
fn serialize(self) -> [Field; ADDRESS_NOTE_LEN]{
[self.address.to_field(), self.owner.to_field(), self.randomness]
}
}
impl Deserialize<ADDRESS_NOTE_LEN> for AddressNote {
fn deserialize(serialized_note: [Field; ADDRESS_NOTE_LEN]) -> Self {
AddressNote {
address: AztecAddress::from_field(serialized_note[0]),
owner: AztecAddress::from_field(serialized_note[1]),
randomness: serialized_note[2],
header: NoteHeader::empty(),
}
}

Now

impl NoteInterface<ADDRESS_NOTE_LEN>  for AddressNote {
fn serialize_content(self) -> [Field; ADDRESS_NOTE_LEN]{
[self.address.to_field(), self.owner.to_field(), self.randomness]
}

fn deserialize_content(serialized_note: [Field; ADDRESS_NOTE_LEN]) -> Self {
AddressNote {
address: AztecAddress::from_field(serialized_note[0]),
owner: AztecAddress::from_field(serialized_note[1]),
randomness: serialized_note[2],
header: NoteHeader::empty(),
}
}
...
}

[Aztec.nr] No storage.init() and Serialize, Deserialize, NoteInterface as Traits, removal of SerializationMethods and SERIALIZED_LEN

Storage definition and initialization has been simplified. Previously:

struct Storage {
leader: PublicState<Leader, LEADER_SERIALIZED_LEN>,
legendary_card: Singleton<CardNote, CARD_NOTE_LEN>,
profiles: Map<AztecAddress, Singleton<CardNote, CARD_NOTE_LEN>>,
test: Set<CardNote, CARD_NOTE_LEN>,
imm_singleton: PrivateImmutable<CardNote, CARD_NOTE_LEN>,
}

impl Storage {
fn init(context: Context) -> Self {
Storage {
leader: PublicMutable::new(
context,
1,
LeaderSerializationMethods,
),
legendary_card: PrivateMutable::new(context, 2, CardNoteMethods),
profiles: Map::new(
context,
3,
|context, slot| {
PrivateMutable::new(context, slot, CardNoteMethods)
},
),
test: Set::new(context, 4, CardNoteMethods),
imm_singleton: PrivateImmutable::new(context, 4, CardNoteMethods),
}
}
}

Now:

struct Storage {
leader: PublicMutable<Leader>,
legendary_card: Singleton<CardNote>,
profiles: Map<AztecAddress, Singleton<CardNote>>,
test: Set<CardNote>,
imm_singleton: PrivateImmutable<CardNote>,
}

For this to work, Notes must implement Serialize, Deserialize and NoteInterface Traits. Previously:

use dep::aztec::protocol_types::address::AztecAddress;
use dep::aztec::{
note::{
note_header::NoteHeader,
note_interface::NoteInterface,
utils::compute_note_hash_for_read_or_nullify,
},
oracle::{
nullifier_key::get_nullifier_secret_key,
get_public_key::get_public_key,
},
log::emit_encrypted_log,
hash::pedersen_hash,
context::PrivateContext,
};

// Shows how to create a custom note

global CARD_NOTE_LEN: Field = 1;

impl CardNote {
pub fn new(owner: AztecAddress) -> Self {
CardNote {
owner,
}
}

pub fn serialize(self) -> [Field; CARD_NOTE_LEN] {
[self.owner.to_field()]
}

pub fn deserialize(serialized_note: [Field; CARD_NOTE_LEN]) -> Self {
CardNote {
owner: AztecAddress::from_field(serialized_note[1]),
}
}

pub fn compute_note_hash(self) -> Field {
pedersen_hash([
self.owner.to_field(),
],0)
}

pub fn compute_nullifier(self, context: &mut PrivateContext) -> Field {
let note_hash_for_nullify = compute_note_hash_for_read_or_nullify(CardNoteMethods, self);
let secret = context.request_nullifier_secret_key(self.owner);
pedersen_hash([
note_hash_for_nullify,
secret.high,
secret.low,
],0)
}

pub fn compute_nullifier_without_context(self) -> Field {
let note_hash_for_nullify = compute_note_hash_for_read_or_nullify(CardNoteMethods, self);
let secret = get_nullifier_secret_key(self.owner);
pedersen_hash([
note_hash_for_nullify,
secret.high,
secret.low,
],0)
}

pub fn set_header(&mut self, header: NoteHeader) {
self.header = header;
}

// Broadcasts the note as an encrypted log on L1.
pub fn broadcast(self, context: &mut PrivateContext, slot: Field) {
let encryption_pub_key = get_public_key(self.owner);
emit_encrypted_log(
context,
(*context).this_address(),
slot,
encryption_pub_key,
self.serialize(),
);
}
}

fn deserialize(serialized_note: [Field; CARD_NOTE_LEN]) -> CardNote {
CardNote::deserialize(serialized_note)
}

fn serialize(note: CardNote) -> [Field; CARD_NOTE_LEN] {
note.serialize()
}

fn compute_note_hash(note: CardNote) -> Field {
note.compute_note_hash()
}

fn compute_nullifier(note: CardNote, context: &mut PrivateContext) -> Field {
note.compute_nullifier(context)
}

fn compute_nullifier_without_context(note: CardNote) -> Field {
note.compute_nullifier_without_context()
}

fn get_header(note: CardNote) -> NoteHeader {
note.header
}

fn set_header(note: &mut CardNote, header: NoteHeader) {
note.set_header(header)
}

// Broadcasts the note as an encrypted log on L1.
fn broadcast(context: &mut PrivateContext, slot: Field, note: CardNote) {
note.broadcast(context, slot);
}

global CardNoteMethods = NoteInterface {
deserialize,
serialize,
compute_note_hash,
compute_nullifier,
compute_nullifier_without_context,
get_header,
set_header,
broadcast,
};

Now:

use dep::aztec::{
note::{
note_header::NoteHeader,
note_interface::NoteInterface,
utils::compute_note_hash_for_read_or_nullify,
},
oracle::{
nullifier_key::get_nullifier_secret_key,
get_public_key::get_public_key,
},
log::emit_encrypted_log,
hash::pedersen_hash,
context::PrivateContext,
protocol_types::{
address::AztecAddress,
traits::{Serialize, Deserialize, Empty}
}
};

// Shows how to create a custom note

global CARD_NOTE_LEN: Field = 1;

impl CardNote {
pub fn new(owner: AztecAddress) -> Self {
CardNote {
owner,
}
}
}

impl NoteInterface for CardNote {
fn compute_note_content_hash(self) -> Field {
pedersen_hash([
self.owner.to_field(),
],0)
}

fn compute_nullifier(self, context: &mut PrivateContext) -> Field {
let note_hash_for_nullify = compute_note_hash_for_read_or_nullify(self);
let secret = context.request_nullifier_secret_key(self.owner);
pedersen_hash([
note_hash_for_nullify,
secret.high,
secret.low,
],0)
}

fn compute_nullifier_without_context(self) -> Field {
let note_hash_for_nullify = compute_note_hash_for_read_or_nullify(self);
let secret = get_nullifier_secret_key(self.owner);
pedersen_hash([
note_hash_for_nullify,
secret.high,
secret.low,
],0)
}

fn set_header(&mut self, header: NoteHeader) {
self.header = header;
}

fn get_header(note: CardNote) -> NoteHeader {
note.header
}

fn serialize_content(self) -> [Field; CARD_NOTE_LEN]{
[self.owner.to_field()]
}

fn deserialize_content(serialized_note: [Field; CARD_NOTE_LEN]) -> Self {
AddressNote {
owner: AztecAddress::from_field(serialized_note[0]),
header: NoteHeader::empty(),
}
}

// Broadcasts the note as an encrypted log on L1.
fn broadcast(self, context: &mut PrivateContext, slot: Field) {
let encryption_pub_key = get_public_key(self.owner);
emit_encrypted_log(
context,
(*context).this_address(),
slot,
encryption_pub_key,
self.serialize(),
);
}
}

Public state must implement Serialize and Deserialize traits.

It is still possible to manually implement the storage initialization (for custom storage wrappers or internal types that don't implement the required traits). For the above example, the impl Storage section would look like this:

impl Storage {
fn init(context: Context) -> Self {
Storage {
leader: PublicMutable::new(
context,
1
),
legendary_card: PrivateMutable::new(context, 2),
profiles: Map::new(
context,
3,
|context, slot| {
PrivateMutable::new(context, slot)
},
),
test: Set::new(context, 4),
imm_singleton: PrivateImmutable::new(context, 4),
}
}
}

[Aztec.nr] Changes to NoteInterface

  1. Changing compute_nullifier() to compute_nullifier(private_context: PrivateContext)

    This API is invoked for nullifier generation within private functions. When using a secret key for nullifier creation, retrieve it through:

    private_context.request_nullifier_secret_key(account_address)

    The private context will generate a request for the kernel circuit to validate that the secret key does belong to the account.

    Before:

     pub fn compute_nullifier(self) -> Field {
    let secret = oracle.get_secret_key(self.owner);
    pedersen_hash([
    self.value,
    secret.low,
    secret.high,
    ])
    }

    Now:

     pub fn compute_nullifier(self, context: &mut PrivateContext) -> Field {
    let secret = context.request_nullifier_secret_key(self.owner);
    pedersen_hash([
    self.value,
    secret.low,
    secret.high,
    ])
    }
  2. New API compute_nullifier_without_context().

    This API is used within unconstrained functions where the private context is not available, and using an unverified nullifier key won't affect the network or other users. For example, it's used in compute_note_hash_and_nullifier() to compute values for the user's own notes.

    pub fn compute_nullifier_without_context(self) -> Field {
    let secret = oracle.get_nullifier_secret_key(self.owner);
    pedersen_hash([
    self.value,
    secret.low,
    secret.high,
    ])
    }

    Note that the get_secret_key oracle API has been renamed to get_nullifier_secret_key.

[Aztec.nr] Remove protocol_types from Nargo.toml

The protocol_types package is now being reexported from aztec. It can be accessed through dep::aztec::protocol_types.

aztec = { git="https://github.com/AztecProtocol/aztec-packages/", tag="aztec-packages-v0.34.0", directory="yarn-project/aztec-nr/aztec" }

[Aztec.nr] key type definition in Map

The Map class now requires defining the key type in its declaration which must implement the ToField trait.

Before:

struct Storage {
balances: Map<PublicMutable<Field, FIELD_SERIALIZED_LEN>>
}

let user_balance = balances.at(owner.to_field())

Now:

struct Storage {
balances: Map<AztecAddress, PublicState<Field, FIELD_SERIALIZED_LEN>>
}

let user_balance = balances.at(owner)

[js] Updated function names

  • waitForSandbox renamed to waitForPXE in @aztec/aztec.js
  • getSandboxAccountsWallets renamed to getInitialTestAccountsWallets in @aztec/accounts/testing

0.17.0

[js] New @aztec/accounts package

Before:

import { getSchnorrAccount } from "@aztec/aztec.js"; // previously you would get the default accounts from the `aztec.js` package:

Now, import them from the new package @aztec/accounts

import { getSchnorrAccount } from "@aztec/accounts";

Typed Addresses

Address fields in Aztec.nr now is of type AztecAddress as opposed to Field

Before:

unconstrained fn compute_note_hash_and_nullifier(contract_address: Field, nonce: Field, storage_slot: Field, serialized_note: [Field; VALUE_NOTE_LEN]) -> [Field; 4] {
let note_header = NoteHeader::new(_address, nonce, storage_slot);
...

Now:

unconstrained fn compute_note_hash_and_nullifier(
contract_address: AztecAddress,
nonce: Field,
storage_slot: Field,
serialized_note: [Field; VALUE_NOTE_LEN]
) -> pub [Field; 4] {
let note_header = NoteHeader::new(contract_address, nonce, storage_slot);

Similarly, there are changes when using aztec.js to call functions.

To parse a AztecAddress to BigInt, use .inner Before:

const tokenBigInt = await bridge.methods.token().simulate();

Now:

const tokenBigInt = (await bridge.methods.token().simulate()).inner;

[Aztec.nr] Add protocol_types to Nargo.toml

aztec = { git="https://github.com/AztecProtocol/aztec-packages/", tag="aztec-packages-v0.34.0", directory="yarn-project/aztec-nr/aztec" }
protocol_types = { git="https://github.com/AztecProtocol/aztec-packages/", tag="aztec-packages-v0.34.0", directory="yarn-project/noir-protocol-circuits/crates/types"}

[Aztec.nr] moving compute_address func to AztecAddress

Before:

let calculated_address = compute_address(pub_key_x, pub_key_y, partial_address);

Now:

let calculated_address = AztecAddress::compute(pub_key_x, pub_key_y, partial_address);

[Aztec.nr] moving compute_selector to FunctionSelector

Before:

let selector = compute_selector("_initialize((Field))");

Now:

let selector = FunctionSelector::from_signature("_initialize((Field))");

[js] Importing contracts in JS

Contracts are now imported from a file with the type's name.

Before:

import { TokenContract } from "@aztec/noir-contracts/types";

Now:

import { TokenContract } from "@aztec/noir-contracts/Token";

[Aztec.nr] Aztec example contracts location change in Nargo.toml

Aztec contracts are now moved outside of the src folder, so you need to update your imports.

Before:

easy_private_token_contract = {git = "https://github.com/AztecProtocol/aztec-packages/", tag ="v0.16.9", directory = "noir-projects/noir-contracts/contracts/easy_private_token_contract"}

Now, just remove the src folder,:

easy_private_token_contract = {git = "https://github.com/AztecProtocol/aztec-packages/", tag ="v0.17.0", directory = "noir-projects/noir-contracts/contracts/easy_private_token_contract"}
