This patch is intended to fix the numerous forking issues users have experienced over the last week. Please download this update and also the new snapshot here. For more information on the snapshot see this post by @tcblack.
This is a leisure update, but is strongly recommended for all users to fix forking issues. If you have issues installing the MSI, please try uninstalling the previous wallet installation and reinstalling fresh from this MSI.
Download the update from GitHub here.
You can also download the Windows MSI here. Remember to backup your wallet.dat and config file before updating!
Note that the in-wallet upgrader is still not working at this time. Please do not upgrade from inside the wallet!
