Upgrading

You ought to perform the following steps:

  1. Download the new binaries (the .zip file (Windows) or the tar.bz2 file (Mac OS X and Linux)) from the official website, the direct download links in this thread, or Github.
  2. Extract the new binaries to a new directory of your liking.
  3. Copy over the wallet files from the old directory (i.e. the v0.15.x.x).
  4. Start monerod and monero-wallet-cli (in case you have to use your wallet).

Note that a blockchain resync is not needed. Thus, if you open monerod-v0.15.x.x, it will simply pick up where it left off.

A few final notes

  • The hashes of the builds were confirmed (by reproducing the build) by iDunk, hyc, selsta, TheCharlatan, JonathanCross, fort3hlulz, scoobybejesus, intj440, afudoci, defterade, and binaryFate.
  • GPG signed results can be found here: https://github.com/monero-project/gitian.sigs
  • To prune an existing blockchain file (data.mdb), you can utilize the prune-blockchain tool that is included in the binaries. Make sure to close all Monero related processes before utilizing this tool. Additionally, if your blockchain file is stored in a non-default directory, you have to make use of the --data-dir flag.
  • To enable pruning on monerod, use the --prune-blockchain startup flag.
  • Ledger Monero users, please be aware that a new version of the Ledger Monero App is required in order to properly use CLI v0.16. This release is not yet out, but forthcoming.
