** YOU MUST UPDATE BEFORE THE 14th TO AVOID GETTING ON THE WRONG FORK **
The masternode payment fork has been postponed until May 25th due to some issues on testnet over the last couple of weeks. A few issues have cropped up and we want the code to be more thoroughly vetted before turning it on for mainnet. This is expected to take less than a week, but to ensure we have enough time we've chosen May 25th.

The other forks will still go into effect on May 14th.

This code includes the following changes and improvements:

  • DGW3 - fixes all issues with various architectures
  • Magic numbers for Darkcoin messaging will be changed from Litecoins
Please update to the current source to avoid getting on the wrong fork on the 14th. You can find the source at:

https://github.com/darkcoinproject/darkcoin

Stable version (v0.9.3.3):
http://www.darkcoin.io/downloads/darkcoind
http://www.darkcoin.io/downloads/darkcoin-qt
http://www.darkcoin.io/downloads/darkcoin-qt.exe

RC2 (v0.10.7.3):

Are pool operators for existing P2Pool Nodes able to do a Git Pull and continue to operate?

Yes, this will be compatible with P2Pool by the 25th. Someone is working on modifications to p2pool to support masternode payments and they say they almost have it working.

Masternodes on 0.10.7.3-beta are ok, right? I really hope so, I've just updated everything and I'm gonna be on the road for a couple of days without real time to check on the fork.

Do you have a plan about releasing amazon AMI for masternode before May 25th?

+1 Is there going to be a AMI that we can lock down with custom firewalls?
There was some talk of that:
"We will be working on creating AWS AMI’s for you to use as well as Ubuntu ISO images for you to setup a server, you will still be responsible for making sure the host is secure and firewall rules are complete based on your specific configuration. When these are created we will put out additional information on what you will need to do after installation."
https://darkcointalk.org/threads/darkcoin-update-masternode-requirements-masternode-payments.225/

But im not shure about the date, Im personally waiting for them to release it before I setup my nodes, So I am very curious myself about the progress of that.

Everything that relates to masternodes is still very experimental and people need to be able to change things fast. This will probably get done when things are more stable, but that will take some time.
