BetaNet Update: 2.4.1

BetaNet will be upgraded to version 2.4.1 on Thursday 1/21 at 2:30pm EST.

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.
