We are pleased to release Litecoin Core 0.13.3 release candidate. This is a new minor version release, including new features, various bug fixes and performance improvements.
It is recommended for power users to upgrade to this version. After sufficient testing, Litecoin Core v0.13.3 final will be released and is recommended for all users to upgrade.
New Multisig Address Prefix
Litecoin Core now supports P2SH addresses beginning with M on mainnet and Q on testnet. P2SH addresses beginning with 3 on mainnet and m or n on testnet will continue to be valid. Old and new addresses can be used interchangeably.
A P2SH converter tool can be found below:
Bundled miniupnpc was updated to 2.0.20170509. This fixes an integer signedness error (present in MiniUPnPc v1.4.20101221 through v2.0) that allows remote attackers (within the LAN) to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact.
This only affects users that have explicitly enabled UPnP through the GUI setting or through the -upnp option, as since the last UPnP vulnerability (in Litecoin Core 0.10.4) it has been disabled by default.
If you use this option, it is recommended to upgrade to this version as soon as possible.
Testnet3 has been deprecated and replaced with Testnet4. The server port has been changed to 19335 however the RPC port remains the same (19332).
Testnet faucets can be located below:
