Welcome back, MintCoin!
This is the first release of MintCoin in more than 2 years. The primary focus has getting the code working on modern systems, as well as fixing the most painful user issues.
Please test it out, especially if you are having problems starting or running on Windows due to memory issues. It will use your existing blockchain and wallet without modification.
Back up your wallet.dat before trying new software, as usual. BACK IT UP NOW!
Note that this is a beta, so no guarantees. But I've been running code from this branch for months now and it basically seems to work.
Peers updated from DNS #43
No longer will you have to give hints to the wallet so it can know where to connect by setting addnode= in your MintCoin.conf. An initial set of peers is pulled from the DNS.
Note: We are looking for more people to run a DNS server. Scripts to set this up are in the MintCoin-DNS-lookup-server repository.
Fix for out-of-memory in Windows 32-bit wallet
Building the Qt wallet for Windows to be "large address aware" fixes the crashing that many Windows users experience. Some more details can be found here.

Support for ARM CPU #44
The wallet can run on single-board computers (SBC) if they have enough RAM (about 2 gigabyte).

We have a ton of fixes for Linux (both Debian-based and Fedora distributions), Windows, and macOS builds.
