BetaNet Update: 2.5.6

BetaNet was upgraded to version 2.5.6 on Monday 4/26 at 11:30pm EDT.

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.

This release will require a protocol upgrade.
This release contains a consensus protocol upgrade, which implements the following spec:


  1. General
    • Bug Fix - Fix accessing int64 atomic variables on arm32 which was causing a panic on startup on ARM32
  2. Ledger
    • Bug Fixes
      • Ensure local delta does not have entries with empty key-value stores
      • Prevent storing empty accounts in DB after opting out from an app
      • DB data migration for empty accounts
      • compatibility mode for account index calculation in eval delta
