[size=14pt]Everyone on version 1.x.x should update to version 0.8.7.5 (Arngrímur Jónsson) which is the latest.[/size]

Downloads can be found on http://auroracoin.is
or https://github.com/aurarad/auroracoin

THIS, AS OF NOW, IS A MANDATORY UPDATE!

We are coming close to the release of our new wallets and the latest release (0.8.7.5) we did was already 6 months ago. To make sure everyone is on the right chain when we release our new version (which will be a hard-fork!) we have now closed the bridge node to the initial (OLD) chain. Please note that if you are sending coins or mine on the old chain (1.x.x) the transactions will no longer be validated on the appropriate one!

This was posted on the altcoin anouncement list on Bitcointalk.com last night... I think this should be here too.

You are correct. It needs also to be here, other dev members often forget about this forum.

Would be great if we had a .deb of the new wallet for amateur Linux users like myself.

Help?

Something worthwhile to look into for the new wallet (support more Linux systems with pre-build binaries). You are using Ubuntu (which version)?

I think when we release the new website and new wallets this will be taken care of. Let's not forget that Linux has been the driving force behind almost 95% of the crypto scene, let's give it some TLC ;-)

Hi guys, I created some cold wallets with the version 0.8.7.5. Do I have to update these wallets somehow with the new version or is there no problem to open them in the future?

Hey 208,

I assume you stored the wallet.dat files onto a usb stick/external hard drive. There is no need to update those wallets
as the wallet format has been kept the same. If you want to access the wallet files in the future, you will have to
use the new wallet software of course.

Best regards,

BioMike

Yes, I stored the wallet.dats extern, in many different ways. Thanks for your quick response!
