All users are encouraged to upgrade to this version, it includes an important bugfix to 1.14.0, and enables support for
OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY compared to pre-1.14.0.
This is a bugfix release which:
- Reverts a change of behaviour in the
targetfield was renamed to
_targetin Namecoin and this change should not have appeared in Dogecoin, for compatibility with previous mining pool configurations. This has now been corrected.
- Fix description of supermajority based forks in
getblockchaininfo- the full block version number was used instead of just the last byte, which made it appear forks were triggered early.
- Change references to "Bitcoin" to "Dogecoin" - these weren't user visible, but are done for consistency.
- Corrects the handling of so-called dust outputs in regards to calculating fees. This fixes an issue where a change output smaller than 1 DOGE would create a transaction that was not going to be relayed.
Note: We have skipped 1.14.1 as the last bug and its fix were found after 1.14.1 was tagged already.
