Some of the “breaking changes” include changes to the configuration of a wallet backup directory and a limit on the maximum number of addnode records. The maximum number of addnode records has been limited to 800.
The release also contains an important upgrade to DOGE’s fee mechanism — changing the recommended dust limit for all network participants from 1 DOGE to 0.01 DOGE.
New features include improving stuck transaction detection, pruning configuration to UI and managing the number of connections without a restart.
“All Dogecoin Core users - miners, services, relay operators and wallet users - are strongly recommended to upgrade,” said Dogecoin Core developer Patrick Lodder in a Github document.
Earlier today, DOGE’s price briefly surged after Tesla Inc TSLA CEO Elon Musk revealed that the company had not sold any DOGE despite selling 75% of its Bitcoin BTC/USD holdings.
Price Action: According to data from Benzinga Pro, DOGE was trading at $0.069, up just 0.84% over 24 hours.
