[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.)


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.
