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

All the best
How do I generate feathercoin addresses? Are they the same as Litecoin addresses or not?
I want to generate with an equivalent service like liteaddress.org and bitaddress.org
I’m curious about paper-wallets for Feathercoin myseld.
If people just spend their time on this forum then they will be missing out on a lot of the Feathercoin conversations over at BitcoinTalk as well as everything else there.
However this forum does give us the opportunity to talk about everything Feathercoin without our conversations being hijacked or disappearing under the amount activity on the boards. The alternative cryptocurrency board at BitcoinTalk is very fast flowing now with such enthusiasm around all the coins.

the win CLient is not availeble!
can anybody Post some Links to Mirrors or upload to any Source to share with the others please !??
You can find a list of mirrors on the thread here.
This is not a concern as we have checkpoints hardcoded into the clients so it would not accept another chain.
You can always start a new chain from the genesis block of any of the coins which will create your own version. It is the checkpoints that stop anyone from trying to force on a fake chain.
There is more information on checkpoints in the link below.
The secondary concern about old clients is mitigated by the fact that the majority of the hash power is on pools running the latest source code. When updating code I inform the pool operators.
I hope that this reassures you.
