Core lightning: A specification compliant Lightning Network implementation in C

Core lightning is a lightweight, highly customizable and standard compliant implementation of the Lightning Network protocol.
Core lightning only works on Linux and Mac OS, and requires a locally (or remotely) running groestlcoind (version 2.16.0 or above) that is fully caught up with the network you're testing on.

Changelog 0.12.0
• NEW Built-in bookkeeper plugin! This plugin tracks all movements of msats for your node, gives you a better idea of your costs and revenues, prints out CSVs that are uploadable to Koinly and CoinTracker, lets you inspect the on-chain footprint of a channel (useful when it goes to chain). Check out the new bkpr- prefixed commands.
• NEW Built-in commando plugin! This lets you create runes to allow access to your node from a commando client, which will let you send and receive RPC commands over the lightning network.
• NEW Emergency channel backup ("static backup")! Keep track of what peers you have channels with, and in case of node failure ask those peers to close the channel.
• NEW zeroconf channels are possible for whitelisted peers.
• hsmtool has a new command, checkhsm, which will let you check a BIP30 passphrase against the hsm_secret.
• Multiple log-file options will open multiple files for logging.
• Various crashes and issues fixed in connectd including crash on peer reconnect and large memory usage when many concurrent peers.
• PSBT: fixes signature encoding to comply with BIP-0174.
• We added dynamically detected public IP addresses to getinfo.
• Due to dependency issues on some platforms, a tarball of pre-generated manual pages is included with this release.

• Creating channels.
• Closing channels.
• Completely managing all channel states (including the exceptional ones!).
• Performing path finding within the network, passively forwarding incoming payments.
• Sending outgoing onion-encrypted payments through the network.
