    Hello Everyone,

    ****** PLEASE UPDATE TO RC5, THIS UPDATE INCLUDES A SPORK (A HARD FORK THAT CAN BE ACTIVATED AT WILL). WHEN 90% OF THE NETWORK HAS UPDATED, IT WILL BE ACTIVATED OR IN 3 WEEKS. *****

    RC5 is officially available for download!

    This is a large update to the stability of Darksend, including:

    - Enforcement of masternode payments
    - Vastly improved effectiveness of the anonymity provided by Darksend (due to the audit of Kristov)
    - Improved speed of Darksend
    - Prepared code for open sourcing
    - Added Darksend overview screen so users can see what's happening

    This is the last release candidate we'll have. Open sourcing will happen in one week! After this, we'll have the community name releases and be doing a 2-3 month release schedule.

    For all changes, please see the changelog:
    https://github.com/darkcoinproject/darkcoin-binaries/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md

    What's next for Darkcoin?

    Next we're going to start working on a demo version of Instant Transactions (https://www.darkcoin.io/downloads/InstantTX.pdf). It's going to take a lot of work to lay the foundation, soon
    after we'll be calling for some testnet users to try it out and report back.

    Other improvements in the works include fixing DOS hardening for the Masternode network and Darksend.

    How To Use Darksend (Thanks vertoe!)

    Just to clarify, all RC4 masternodes need to update, correct? This is a mandatory update due to fixes and changes in the voting system?

    Is it as easy as stopping the daemon, rm, download new and starting? My wallets are all in cold storage so ideally I would prefer to just SSH into the masternodes themselves and issue an update. My wallet addresses haven't been built in RC4/RC5 from when the encryption bug telling you to upgrade was issued. Not sure if it's something that I should be concerned with or if I have to suck it up, load each wallet and send to a new RC5 address generated and then redo the setup process. Thoughts?

    After updating the darkcoind on your cold wallet (start it), you need to open and start masternode from your updated 10.13.14 local wallet to work :)

    I stand to be corrected but I would imagine that the list will be updating so rapidly that it might take a while to propogate around the network and gain consensus.

    darkcoind masternode count rarely returns the *exact* same figure when run on different consoles...

    Evan so if I understand it good, the enforcment of masternode payments are ON and there is no more need to informe bad actors (pools) to update because when they will find a block it will be rejected right?

    No, enforcement will happen when 90% of the network updates or in 3 weeks if that has not happened by then.

    Opps. That was for debugging. Removed in v15. We're compiling now.

    Ed, this might just be me but some of my masternodes are starting fine, running for a while and then xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx;0 in the masternode list. In fact, my masternodes are disappearing one by one.

    EDIT: 4/7 have gone inactive now.
