New Release: 4.1.0 *Migration to Clang and static libc++* zcashd now builds its C++ (and C) dependencies entirely with a pinned version of Clang, and statically links libc++ instead of dynamically linking libstdc++. This migration enables us to reliably use newer C++ features while supporting older LTS platforms, be more confident in the compiler’s optimisations, and leverage security features such as sanitisers and efficient fuzzing. In the future, this will also allow optimizing across the boundary between Rust and C++. The system compiler is still used to compile a few native dependencies (used by the build machine to then compile zcashd for the target machine). These will likely also be migrated to use the pinned Clang in a future release. Note when building zcashd from source on Debian/Ubuntu, libtinfo5 is now a required dependency. The build instructions for those platforms contain more information and a complete dependency list. *Fast sync for initial block download* The -ibdskiptxverification flag allows faster synchronization during initial block sync, by skipping transaction verification and instead verifying only PoW. Note this mode requires checkpoints to be enabled, to make sure each block under inspection is an ancestor of the latest checkpoint. More here: electriccoin.co/blog/new-release-4-1-0/

Perspective: Privacy is normal, safe and essential We are now at the foundation of something like the internet. What the internet did for communication and commerce, cryptocurrencies will do for money. But using cryptocurrencies without privacy is not safe. It’s not safe for a young woman in the South Bronx, it’s not safe for businesses, it’s not safe for the country you live in. It’s not safe for you. electriccoin.co/blog/privacy-is-normal-safe-and-essential/
