Readying for Bitcoin 0.15 Compliance

The end of Q3 is fast approaching and Particl will be releasing a number of products as September comes to a close.

Bitcoin Core 0.15.0 Released and Particl was Ready

Bitcoin Core released a major release today, release notes can be found here. Tecnovert has been hard at work reviewing the 0.15 release candidates the past month and updating Particl Core to comply with the latest developments and improvements of this major release. One of the hot topics has been the bug related to preemptive partitioning that was disclosed at Breaking Bitcoin last week.

Keeping pace with the Mother Code

One of the top reasons Particl built our decentralized privacy platform on the latest Bitcoin protocol was to stay in step with the world-class developers working on Core. The team will be releasing a mandatory update to Particl Core shortly with Bitcoin Core 0.15.0 updates merged over. Anyone interested in the technicals can see TV’s commit here:

Merge branch '0.15' into particl_dev · particl/particl-core@793e03d
particl-core - Particl Core integration/staging

Particl will be one of the first projects after Bitcoin protected from the preemptive partitioning bug when we go live with the latest Particl Core release. This is solid work from Tecnovert and we won’t blame you from shouting it from the roof!
