Bitcoin Cash (BCH) activated a hard fork today. After the hard fork there was over an hour where blocks did not confirm transactions. This was caused by a bug in the ABC implementation that was fixed by this change in the code.

Based on the fixed it seems that only BitcoinABC was affected. Not Bitcoin Unlimited, or Dash.
