This is the first beta release of Dogecoin Core 1.14.

The main changes since Alpha 4 include fixes for the macOS version and some branding issues we encountered while testing. This also marks the first binary release of Dogecoin Core 1.14. You will be able to download binaries and installer packages down below. Please make sure, if you upgrade an existing version, to make a (current!) backup of your wallet.dat file! We have successfully upgraded existing wallets in our testing, but you should always keep a backup of that file regardless.

This version contains a soft fork to enable BIP-65 (OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY). The fork is locked in at 750 of the previous 1000 blocks. At 950 of the previous 1000 blocks with base version 4, the client will start to reject blocks with a base version of <= 3. For pool operates this means that they should update to the final 1.14 version once it is released asap, but at least before the fork is activated to not risk mining invalid blocks after 95% of the mined blocks are on base version 4. While this is not very relevant to end users you should still make sure to update to 1.14 final sooner than later.

Important notes:

  • Please do not mine on the production network with this release, as it would trigger a soft fork earlier than expected.
