[NEW RELEASE] Goldcoin Core v0.14.8 Has Just Been Released

(Note: This is an update to the desktop client. This update does not impact mobile users.)



[Background]

As our network continues to grow, we are seeing an increase in transaction count and block size.

A few weeks ago, a 6MB block was mined. This is the first time since v0.14.5's initial release (which increased our block size to 32MB) that a block greater than 2MB had been mined. This resulted in a previously unknown bug in the client being discovered that banned nodes containing blocks greater than 4MB.

This bug has been fixed in v0.14.8.

[How to Upgrade]

-- If you are running an older version of the client, and it's in sync and working, simply close the client and upgrade.

-- If you are installing the desktop client for the first time, simply download and install the update.

-- If you are currently running a client that won't sync with the network, follow the steps in the next section.

[Stuck Clients]

If you are currently running an older version of the Goldcoin client that will not sync, you must close the client and delete the /blocks and /chainstate folders in the data directory. The directory locations vary depending on your operating system.

Windows: Users/<username>/AppData/Roaming/Goldcoin

MAC: ~/Library/Application Support/Goldcoin

Linux: .Goldcoin

Once you have closed the client and deleted the /blocks and /chainstate folders. Install the latest update and allow the client to resync with the network.
