BetaNet Update: 2.1.3

In anticipation of our upcoming MainNet release, BetaNet was upgraded to version 2.1.3 today at 9:30pm EDT. Unfortunately the 32-bit ARM binaries are delayed once again.

If you have your node set to automatic updates, you don’t need to do anything. It will automatically update to the newer version whenever that becomes available.

If this is not the case, you can update the binary, but aren’t required to do so.
