"getblockhash 32620"

It should say 0000000396252949e5f7e7a1c8dcfbc36591329668706540783e030f05d93add

Evan can you talk about whether RC5 is open source, etc. It's coming up a lot on Bitcointalk forums.

****** PLEASE UPDATE TO v9.13.12 (Stable) OR 10.13.12 (RC) *******

The Warning message is being caused by older clients (pre-enforcement spork) still mining and they have the longer chain. The daemon should disconnect the two networks in the case of a rejected block.

- disconnect on rejecting enforced block

now that we can run multiple Darkcoin clients on one PC we could test three-client pairing more easily..... just a thought.


just found out how to run multiple darkcoin clients on one PC for Windows users:
- make seperate folders for both darkcoin-qt.exe and the datafolders
- place shortcuts from each seperate darkcoin-qt.exe to yr desktop
- in each shortcut add following in the target field: -datadir=yrspecificdatadirectoryfolder -listen=0
voila... you can now run multiple darkcoin clients on one PC .. increasing the chance of finding pairs for all testers.
For non-windows users who want to try this see if you can do something with these parameters (-datadir & listen=0)
i have been running 2 darkcoin clients all night without problems, denominations coming in regarly.

But only for testing.... :)
yeah, just for testing :)

But basicly we could use it to better simulate Mainnet. There is not much limit RAM or CPU wise i noticed.
You can easily run 4 darkcoin clients on 1 PC.

BTW, my 16000 DRKs finished anonymizing last night after 78 hours, and a ton of "Darksend Denominate" fees.

Nothing new to report, I would feel comfy using this on main-net. Good work to the team and all testers!

I've updated the post with information about future plans, enforcement and open sourcing:

https://darkcointalk.org/threads/rc5-launching-september-22nd.2382/
Request for the following pre-opensource:

One of these was mentioned before, but I think the following two things are very important now that we are about to open-source.

1. Update the Darksend paper.

Mentioned before, I know -- but this is very important IMO. Once we open source a lot of people will turn their eyes towards Darkcoin. Some may look at the code, but most will just read the whitepaper... and the current paper does all the work Evan and the other devs have put in VERY little justice. It would suck to be called "just another coinjoin clone" based on an outdated whitepaper. PLEASE update this documentation before the 29th.

2. Darksend User Manual

Some attempts at this have been made in the past so maybe that can be used as a starting point, but having an updated manual with pictures and explanation based around the latest client will go a long way in mitigating confusion. This is probably more of an item for the "Core Team" rather than the dev team, but it is also very important.

Thanks

Agreed - very important!!!

Also what I think is very important as I have said in my previous posts is having a press release ready for RC5 launch and Open Source

Evan, I remember you had written a press release for when bitfinex added DRK - we need something similar.

This is the time we need the marketing to go into overdrive as it will aid in the adoption of the coin early on immensely.

Evan, does it mean a few other people and I were on the wrong chain and it was a fork, that was why we got the Warning error? and because the wallets are not built with the backwards compatibility feature?

Thank you.

few things to consider before releasing to Mainnet in my opinion :

- if RC4 users need to transfer their darkcoins to new wallets in order to use RC5 make sure its mentioned in the announcement
- advise people to encrypt their (new) wallets for security reasons
- during encryption maybe a text can be put into place with something like ''the encryption of the wallet will make yr pc unresponsive for a few minutes, this is perfectly normal''

v0.10.13.12 looks to be without problems, Darksend nominations are getting in and everything looks good.

i'm off to work now .. i will let my three wallets do some large wallet anonymization.

We are currently working on the Instant Transactions paper and as a side effect i think we'll have a updated version of the Darksend paper after the 29th too, as it is rather outdated now.

Evan and me decided that http://wiki.darkcoin.qa/display/DRK/Darkcoin User Guide will be the base for the User Manual. Everyone is invited to join, it's a joint effort to fill the blank pages :)

Hmm, how can it be at 100% already?
Tooltip on progress bar shows 5.266667 out of 8 rounds

Started out with a fresh wallet, only changed settings before starting the denomination.

edit:
Now jumped back to 64% and avg of 3.3333333 out of 8 rounds
