The Phoenix has risen. Announcing the release of the SmartCash 1.3.0!

This is a mandatory update. 1.2.8 clients will stop syncing around August 22nd.

This is a massive release with many changes to make future adoption easier. Main changes are SAPI, Timelock transactions, new address format, SuperRewards and new SmartReward structure. Special thanks to Greg and Enrique on coding (and moral support).

To update.
SmartNodes - This release uses more space. Blocks take up 17GB(vs 8gb with 1.2.8). Ram minimum is 2GB, it will be difficult for 1GB even with 4GB of swap to get through the creating the SmartRewards index. Servers are also required to have port 8080 open (in addition to 9678). Please update servers as needed. We don’t have a ppa yet, so SmartNodes won’t update with the script yet. You can update by downloading the tar.gz file, unzipping binaries, and stopping and starting with new client. Please adjust any restart cron scripts so they use the full path /home/“user”/smartcashd instead of just smartcashd. Updating will require a SmartRewards database rebuild which is done automatically on startup and takes an hour or two with command line and several hours with QT wallets.
