Bugfix release


  • Link geth statically on Linux, to make released binary more compatible (#454)


.zip.sig and .tar.gz.sig files are detached PGP signatures
.zip.asc and .tar.gz.asc files are ascii-armored detached PGP signatures
.zip and .tar.gz are archive (compressed) files containing the geth executable

To verify a release with a signature: First, make sure you have a gpg tool installed, eg. gnupg or gnupg2. Then, if you haven't already, you'll need to import the signing key, which you'll find here. This step is included below.

# Import my signing public key
$ wget
$ gpg —import
# Verify
$ gpg --verify geth-classic-linux-v4.2.0-c11fbdf.tar.gz.asc 
gpg: assuming signed data in 'geth-classic-linux-v4.2.0-c11fbdf.tar.gz'
gpg: Signature made Tue 02 Jan 2018 11:01:33 PM UTC
