So far i can tell they updated Dash to latest Bitcoin, integrated Sentinel, optimized the code and they are in the proces of adding / testing superblocks.Does anyone know what the new "secret" features we were supposed to get are? Have these been released yet? Asking because I haven't been to testnet in a while.
i'm still a little confused. Does that mean yes? it is safe?some details to make this easier :
Tx to spiralus for the writeup and pointing this out
* Default Dash network protocol listen port is 19999 (instead of 9999)
* Bootstrapping uses different DNS seeds.
* A different value of ADDRESSVERSION field ensures no testnet Dash addresses will work on the production network. (140 rather than 76)
(On 12.0.x is was 139 and was changed to 140 for 12.1.x)
* The protocol message header bytes are 0xcee2caff (instead of 0xbf0c6bbd)
Apologies, let me rephrase. Is it safe to run main net and test net on the same machine (in my instance, a mac).save as in how ?
start new wallet - do the testnet things nessacery in QT and ready to go
I do not understand the question - what does your MAC has to do with this ?
Testnet uses sub-folder and should not intersect with mainnet wallet in any way. v0.12.1.x binaries are more or less stable so should be pretty safe. However reindex is required at first start of v0.12.1.x so please be careful and do not run it on mainnet (accidentally) or you'd have to reindex mainnet blocks via v0.12.0.x to make it work again.Apologies, let me rephrase.

It looks like the "success" message is merely a broadcast success, essentially just saying that you have a functioning dash.conf/masternode.conf, and they passed all the sanity/collateral check tests and the broadcast was "success." Zero communication actually occurs with the remote/MN daemon. So, the "success" message is a bit deceptive and really has nothing at all to do with the MN being activated or not.That's weird, last night I started my two tMNs with the MN tab, my remote MNs didn't actually say they started, but the wallet assured me they were started, so I just left everything as is. Now I just noticed that they never did start up, and my wallet shows them as having not started.
Yeah, but I think there's a whole bunch of stuff being added to 0.12.1.0 that was not originally meant to be in 0.12.1.0 at the time he made that statement.https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/august-2016-development-update.10018/
Evans message was Aug 2, so, pub testing is 2 weeks late.
For mainnet you mean? Yes, if you start from scratch, no, if you first copy Dash folder to DashCore (like I did) to speed things up and save some bandwidth. This will allow you to use both 0.12.0.x and 0.12.1.x on mainnet separately but I would highly encourage you not to do so unless you completely understand what you are doing or at least have wallets.dat from both folders backed up properly.Will this also negate the previously mentioned reindex by pulling chain again in new root working directory?
Still fixing some final Sentinel issues. I think core is ready though.Any news on when 12.1 testnet will be released?
