This is a new bug fix release, adding support for pool software that rely on freicoind for the correct coinbase commitments, including median time past. Upgrading to this release is required for miners which use pool software that depends on the availability of the "locktime" field from 'getblocktemplate,' but otherwise it is not required.

Please report bugs using the issue tracker at github:


How to Upgrade

If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the installer (on Windows) or just copy over /Applications/Freicoin-Qt (on Mac) or freicoind/freicoin-qt (on Linux).

Notable changes

Add "locktime" field to 'getblocktemplate' mining RPC

The recent soft-fork to force vtx[0].nLockTime to be the current median-time-past requires that mining software track freicoin headers and generate this value from that information. In order to make this process simpler for many downstream maintainers, we add the field "locktime" to the results of the 'getblocktemplate' JSON-RPC call which contains the required nLockTime value, which is equal to the median of the past 11 block header timestamps.

10.4.2 changelog

  • `a64790008` [Mining]
    Report the required coinbase nLockTime in 'getblocktemplate'.
