The developers have unveiled a new version of the Dogecoin Core software, calling it “a minor update with important performance improvements.” You can upgrade to a new software version by installing over the existing 1.14 client.
One of the main improvements in Dogecoin Core 1.14.3 is the increased sync speed. The description of the update says:
“This dramatically improves the speed at which nodes can load blocks by removing costly integrity checks. In the past, they were done every time a block was transferred from one node to another. “
In addition, the setting for storing cached transactions in the mempool has been changed from 336 hours to 24. The setting can be changed manually, but the developers note that the default value is optimal for nodes.
The previous version of the Dogecoin client has been in use since November 2019, however, the developers recently announced the resumption of work on it:
“People say it’s a joke, but we follow the code very closely. When the project took off, attention returned, and we want to keep the currency in working order. “
