Decred 0.5.0 Release Scheduled For Monday Oct 10 2016
We are in the last throws to finalize 0.5.0. As some may have noticed the release was delayed a bit and that was due to complications on CUDA-windows.
The 0.5.0 release has major performance enhancements. This is great however, this is going to be a flag-day release. We ditched the old database format and replaced it with a harder/better/faster/stronger one meaning people will have to do an IBD. Good news is that we think this will be the last flag day before we hit 1.0.
We do encourage everyone to update immediately once 0.5.0 drops so that we can get a lot of community runtime.
