Due to someone sending transaction spam, I had to update the fees to make it more in line with Bitcoin fees in order to deter the spam.
Litecoin version 0.5.0.6 has been released.
- added minimum fee of 0.1 LTC for low priority transactions to deter transaction spam
- reduce transaction spamming by allowing only 500 bytes of exempted transactions as oppose to 3000 bytes (in Bitcoin)- changed the priority cutoff of free transaction to 1 litecoin day per 250 bytes.- disabled encrypt wallet feature since it's currently broken. encrypted wallets might still have private keys in the clear so be careful if you've already encrypted your wallet.
Please get latest from source or download the Windows client binary:https://github.com/downloads/coblee/litecoin/litecoin-windows-client-0.5.0.6.zip
Pool operators and solo miners should get this latest code so that you don't write these spammy transactions into blocks. Users should download the latest client so they don't propagate spammy transactions and let them slow down the client.
