Today some clients on the Feathercoin blockchain stopped synchronizing.
The team has worked on the problem and released version 0.18.2 of feathercoin-core and gui, which contains a fast fix for the problem.
If you compile the code yourself, get the latest code from “https://github.com/FeatherCoin/Feathercoin/releases” as soon as possible.
If you use a precompiled binary/package for windows download the latest version from “https://github.com/FeatherCoin/Feathercoin/releases”
If you use Linux installation packages, run the OS specific update process for the feathercoin package and if that fails get the latest package from “https://software.opensuse.org/package/feathercoin”. Select ‘community packages’ for your distribution and check that he version displayed is 0.18.2
A detailed description how to install /update the software can be found here at the Feathercoin forum
Today the Linux installation packages for Ubuntu were created.
If a previous version was already installed, users can update to the latest revision using the command ‘sudo apt-get install feathercoin’
If no feathercoin package was installed before follow the instructions here
If you start an encrypted wallet, you have access to all functions, but if you actually try to send coins, you are requested the password.
This happens only once for the running wallet.
The encryption also is a security measure against someone getting access to your computer and the wallet.dat file.
By copying the wallet.dat the intruder gets your private keys and full access to your coins, if the wallet is not encrypted.

Just a note re: Implementation of totalitarian brig brother style monitoring of population, and (Cough) Serco Artificial Intelligence Daemon face recognition software.
I also notice the FBI are monitoring the content of chat apps here :
Three men living outside the U.S. planned to attack concerts, Times Square and crowded subways in 2016 in an ISIS-inspired attack that one of the suspects said he hoped would be “the next 9/11,” authorities announced on Friday afternoon.
The FBI said the three men — Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy, a 19-year-old Canadian citizen; Talha Haroon, a 19-year-old U.S. citizen based in Pakistan; and Russell Salic, a 37-year-old orthopedic surgeon in the Philippines — allegedly used chat apps to talk about bringing a car bomb into the Crossroads of the World, gunning down subway riders before detonating vests and opening fire on concert goers in the vein of the Paris terror attacks of 2015.
“NY Needs to fall. This is a must,” Haroon allegedly wrote in a message to an undercover agent posing as an ISIS sympathizer.
FBI and NYPD officials told the I-Team the plot was more aspirational than operational. But according to the indictments, Al Bahnasawy, who has already pleaded guilty to multiple charges, traveled to Cranford, New Jersey, in May of 2016 and had designs on carrying out the attacks before he was cuffed by authorities waiting there for him.
This seems like very bad business practice, especially because they don’t announce it on their main page. They should ask for donations instead, like Wikipedia does, and if that + ads doesn’t sustain their business model, just let it go.
