Geth Covfefe (v1.6.3)

According to a post in reddit by user karalabe, Geth's latest release Covfefe (v1.6.3) is out as on June 1, 2017.

This is an immediate release made just after yesterday's release of Geth 1.6.2 .

Geth v1.6.3 is a hotfix release to address some issues discovered during Basic Attention Token (BAT) ICO's crazy transaction volume:

  • Fix a quadratic overhead when adding new transactions to the pool (#14561).

  • Reduce egress network traffic sent to ethstats to avoid overloads (#14563).

  • Fix our ethereum/client-go:alpine image to point to the 1.6 branch (#14564).

  • Fix an account handling regression with badly encoded legacy keyfiles (#14565).

Binaries and mobile libraries are available on the download page.
