January 17th, 2020, Weekly Update

New core and desktop versions out now

The ecosystem is undergoing a wide-scale upgrade. A new core and desktop version are both available now. We highly recommend upgrading if you are running a node via CLI. Desktop wallet users receive the upgrade automatically upon updating the desktop wallet. The MOCCI nodes are all running the latest version already, and no action is necessary if you are running one.
