This is the leisure release, an intramilestone maintenance release as
part of the LaVerne milestone. Much of this release comprises bugfixes and
updates from the Bitcoin Core upstream. Thanks to @barton2526 for working hard
to port Bitcoin Core PR's for Gridcoin. There are a few notable features that
make this version an important upgrade:

  • Implementation of the getmrcinfo rpc function, which reports summary and/or
    detailed MRC info for a single CPID or the entire network.
  • Implementation of the new core diagnostics library, along with an associated
    walletdiagnose rpc command to allow running diagnostics on a headless wallet.
    The GUI diagnostics were refactored to use the new core library. Thanks
  • Implementation of wallet holder's last vote information on the GUI poll
    cards. This allows you to see your last vote on each poll in the GUI.

Thanks to the following contributors for this release:
