TestNet Update Coming this morning (v0.2.15)

#1

We’re preparing a new update for 11:30am today. The list of changes continues to shrink as we approach MainNet. Once the update has been picked up, we’ll send out the revision notes. Please be sure you update your node - there’s another protocol upgrade in this release, so your node will stop participating if you don’t update.

And please be sure you have renewed your participation keys for online accounts. To simplify the process, there are 2 new commands (goal account renewpartkey and goal account renewallpartkeys).

Release notes will be posted once the release is deployed.
