New Release 5.6.0

Release 5.6.0 introduces the functionality necessary for light wallets to access spendable funds without fully scanning the blockchain. This is a critical component in the path to exiting emergency mode and provides a solid user experience for mobile wallets. In addition, this release includes updates to existing RPC methods to address issues related to the ZIP-317 implementation and the privacy policy features. 

All node operators, which includes our mining and other ecosystem partners, should upgrade to this latest version as soon as practical.

Additional RPC changes have been included in this release. For technical details on these changes, please read the full release notes available at
