Hello everyone, Looks like we finally had a successful migration on testnet and solved all known (critical) issues, so we are ready to start the final phase which is a public testing. This release includes: - DIP0001 implementation https://github.com/dashpay/dips/blob/master/dip-0001.md - 10x transaction fee reduction (including InstantSend fee) - InstantSend vulnerability fix - Lots of other bug fixes and performance improvements - Experimental BIP39/BIP44 complaint HD wallet (disabled by default, should be fully functional but there is no GUI yet) Detailed release notes: https://github.com/dashpay/dash/pull/1675 (work in progress) Before testing: - Make sure you made a backup of you mainnet datadir somewhere or at least a backup of wallet.dat/dash.conf/masternode.conf; - Remove testnet3 folder, old testnet is not compatible anymore, you need to sync from scratch. What/how to test: - DIP0001 is already active on testnet, so it's capable of handling 2Mb blocks now and have lower fees. Send some transactions but please spam responsibly - InstantSend fix is also activated, so InstantSend is enabled on testnet, give it a try; - Try mixing too, let's see how it works now; - Run a masternode or two, make sure it is paid; - Create some proposals and/or up/down-vote some of them (remember, you need a masternode to vote but you don't need a masternode to submit a proposal).

If you already have a mainnet masternode on the same server, do NOT run testnet masternode in the same datadir as your mainnet masternode (i.e. `.dashcore`). Create new folder specifically for testing (e.g. `.dashcore_test`) and make sure you use `-datadir=<yourtestnetdatadirhere>` cmd-line parameter for dashd and dash-cli. You'll also need a separate crontab line for testnet Sentinel. If you are not 100% sure what you are doing, I'd recommend setting up a new machine/instance for testing purposes only instead of reusing your mainnet server.
