How to Upgrade

If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely
shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the
installer (on Windows) or just copy over /Applications/Viacoin-Qt (on Mac)
or viacoind/viacoin-qt (on Linux).

The first time you run version 0.15.0 or higher, your chainstate database will
be converted to a new format, which will take anywhere from a few minutes to
half an hour, depending on the speed of your machine.

The file format of fee_estimates.dat changed in version 0.15.0. Hence, a
downgrade from version 0.15 or upgrade to version 0.15 will cause all fee
estimates to be discarded.

Bootstrap for Viacoin 0.15+ is available: https://bootstrap.viacoin.org/

Compatibility

Viacoin Core is extensively tested on multiple operating systems using
the Linux kernel, macOS 10.8+, and Windows Vista and later. Windows XP is not supported.

Notable changes

Denial-of-Service vulnerability CVE-2018-17144

A denial-of-service vulnerability exploitable by miners has been discovered in
Bitcoin Core versions 0.14.0 up to 0.16.2. This means Bitcoin derived coins have the same issue.
It is recommended to upgrade any of
the vulnerable versions to 0.15.1 to 0.15.2 as soon as possible.
