Follow our Twitter for the latest dev news.
We are pleased to release Litecoin Core 0.21.2.2. This is a new minor version release, including an important security update affecting prior versions. It is recommended for all users to upgrade to this version.
Important Security Updates
This release contains fixes that harden node and network security. These fixes are important for every node operator and wallet user.
Limit and tightly manage memory usage in events of high network traffic or when connected to extremely slow peers. This protects nodes on lower end hardware to not run out of memory in the face of increased network activity.
RPC API Changes
Added addconnection for use by functional tests.
getpeerinfo provides 2 new fields per peer, addr_processed and addr_rate_limited, that track addr message processing.
Please use GPG to verify the integrity of the release binaries. This ensures that the binary you have downloaded has not been tampered with. Linux, MacOS and Win32 cygwin command line GPG instructions are available here. Please also note that we GPG sign the binaries as a convenience to you, the ultimate way to verify the integrity of the builds is to build them yourself using Gitian. Instructions on how to perform these builds, can be found here.
For this release, the binaries have been signed with key identifier 0x3620e9d387e55666 (davidburkett38's key).
Despite this version being heavily tested, this version may still contain bugs. Always backup your wallet.dat file before upgrading. If you encounter any issues, please let us know by posting to the bug reporting section below.
