Bitcoin Core has released a new upgrade for the BTC network and digital storage. Basically, developers who contribute to the Bitcoin public network represent the Bitcoin Core team. As we approach the May 2020 halving, this might reverse the crypto market downtrend given its product speculative nature.
The recently launched Bitcoin Core ‘v 0.19.0.1’ will make a number of changes within the wallet features as well as the full node software. Its main fundamental improvements are based on security and memory/space. The Bitcoin Software Client descendant has been under constant progress since the release of a Bitcoin roadmap/whitepaper by Nakamoto.
Compatibility and Upgrade Features
This new release will be compatible with a number of operating systems; they include Windows 7, Mac OS 10.10+ and Linux kernel together with those O.S built after the aforementioned. It is also notable that earlier versions of the operating systems are not supported and the new ecosystem is not dark mode friendly for Apple users.
In terms of memory, this Bitcoin Core has been designed to save memory compared to the previous version. The team altered its repository specifically ‘Reduce Memory’ which edges out ecosystems with insufficient memory saving up to 9% of memory space.
The security features upgrade within the new Bitcoin Core network give users the option to activate or deactivate some features. Ideally, the developers have created an ecosystem where digital wallets can be whitelisted or blacklisted by the full node contributors within Bitcoin’s network. Peer to peer connections with IP addresses will also be controllable based on an operators’ preference of interaction. However, in case there are no specifications, the default permissions from previous Bitcoin Core releases will hold.
