Gridcoin "Elizabeth" Release


The core developers are pleased to present the Elizabeth milestone leisure release. This is a leisure release primarily aimed at non-mandatory items and bug fixes leading up to the Fern mandatory milestone release.

This release also enables us to whitelist teams other than Gridcoin as a stepping stone for the implementation of no team requirement in Fern.
