ZCash source code version 2.0.5-2 released
ZCash has announced the release new version of the source code. The new version is 2.0.5-2. The new version was announced on 21st May. This is not a major version upgrade but rather a hotfix upgrade for people who built ZCash from the source. People who downloaded the package or through normal download need not upgrade.
There was an issue with the Sprout-to-Sapling migration tool in the v2.0.5 and v2.0.5-1. V2.0.5-2 fixes the issue. The lifecycle of ZCashd V2.0.5-2 will be supported until block 598012, which is expected to arrive around 05 September 2019.
Sprout-to-Sapling Migration Tool
This is a tool specially designed to safely migrate shielded funds from the Sprout pool to the Sapling pool while minimizing information leakage. The tool was introduced in V2.0.5 initially but due to the issue was not used. With the V2.0.5-2 upgrade, the tool can be used properly.
64-bit ARMv8 support
Allows ZCash to be built on 64-Bit ARM devices.
