The DRK developers released Darkcoin Core V0.11.0 yesterday afternoon, which brings a lot of changes to DarkSend, as well as some security fixes and other things. Many people have been eagerly waiting for this release, which has been 2 months in the making and combines the work of no less than 10 different developers.
Darkcoin Core V0.11.0 is forked from Bitcoin 0.9.3 in order to take advantage of nearly 2 years of development committed to the Bitcoin core client. This is a long awaited change, as all previous client versions have been based on Litecoin. However,a s there are no developmental changes going on there, nor will there be any in the near future, it seems like a good decision to switch to Bitcoin core.
Not unlike Bitcoin, Darkcoin Core now also has some new denominations, called “duffs”. THis is of course an hommage to Evan Duffield, the creator and main developer of Darkcoin Core. One duff represents 1/100.000.000 DRK, similar to how 1 Satoshi represents 1/100.000.000 Bitcoin. New testnet denominations have been created in the form of tDRK, mtDRK, utDRK and tduff.
Lots of changes and fixes have been applied to the Masternode protocol, with the most change being the security fix to a possible masternode payout exploit. Other changes include randomly sorting masternodes before picking the next winner, improved support for start-many with multi master node config, and a few other bits and pieces.
Most of the focus has been on the changes being made to DarkSend, as the lower DarkSend limit has been reduced to 1.5 DRK. The progress bar calculations for lower amounts have also been fixed and will now display information more accurately. Furthermore, Darkcoin Core V0.11.0 includes improved support for adding DRK after anon has completed.
