This version adds a new protocol version 5.0 which is the same as 4.0 but will switch 2 weeks after 55% of the blocks have upgraded (instead of 90% for protocol 4.0).
It’s available here: https://bitbucket.org/JordanLeePeershares/bcexchange/downloads
The details of the 4.0 protocol were given here: [Mandatory upgrade] B&C Exchange 4.0 has been released
This upgrade will become mandatory when 55% of the last 2000 blocks have been minted by upgraded nodes. At this point shareholders will have 14 days to upgrade. You can monitor the percentage and the switch date with the RPC
getprotocolvotes (added in version 4.0.1).
The initiative to make this 5.0 release was started here: Proposal to speed adoption of the reputation system.
But this version only includes the first 2 points. The other changes are not ready and it’s not clear whether they can be finished given the current state of the project (see What will be paid to B&C exchange developer and [Passed]Motion to elect Sigmike as B&C’s technical leader)
A few other minor changes were made:
- the testnet blockchain was restarted to make it more similar than the main one
- the voted protocol version is displayed in
- fixed a bug that prevented minting when an signer reward vote was set before the new protocol was effective
- fixed a bug during upgrade of existing wallets that prevented them from voting for the new protocol
