New release: Freicoin v12.1.1-10130

Recommended Posts

Freicoin version 12.1.1-10130 is now available from:

This is a new bug fix release, fixing an erroneous report of unexpected version / possible versionbits upgrade on all platforms. Upgrading to this release is recommended but 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

Erroneous versionbits upgrade notice

The recent soft-fork to force vtx[0].nLockTime to be the current median-time-past requires that blocks signal for version bits and set bit #28, and to keep setting this bit once activated until 2 Oct 2019. On BIP9 versionbits-aware clients such as v12.1, this set bit is erroneously interpreted as activation of an unknown consensus rule, and the user is alerted to upgrade.

This alert is generated in error and can be safely ignored in this case.  However this category of alert is serious and so as to prevent user complacency in the future we are issuing a new point release to eliminate this warning.

Beginning with v12.1.1, setting versionbit #28 will not trigger warnings about the activation of new consensus rules until 2 Oct 2019 (2 Apr 2019 on testnet).
