New version 0.8.5.3 Released...!!!

To update do not forget previous backup of your wallet.dat file.
If your update is ok, you will not need it, but do it always is the best practice...

You can download the clients by the links on the top of Home page of these forums...

The main improvements are irc peers and dns seeds bug correction to obtain nodes automatically without the need of .conf file
and for mac users it is implementing Memory Barrier to ensure that memory operations occur in the correct order...

yep, dont worry it is a broadcast alert system to inform the new release...  It does not check your current version.

Re: OFFICIAL FASTCOIN CLIENTs - BOOTSTRAP.DAT
« Reply #8 on: March 10, 2014, 05:30:08 PM »
   bootstrap.dat

bootstrap.dat allows a new Fastcoin client (not synced) to rapidly import the initial blocks from a
local file instead of slowly downloading blocks from random peers. This significantly reduces the
time it takes to get a client synced with the current blockchain.

Simply having bootstrap.dat in Fastcoin's expected data directory will make your initial block sync
much faster. The import process can be even faster if you use the -dbcache=1000 command line
parameter which uses an additional 1GB of RAM for the database index cache.

You can download the bootstrap.dat which is currently 1GB or the bootstrap.dat.xz which is 530MB.

   Extracting the bootstrap.dat.xz

Regardless of your operating system, use the following steps to make use of the bootstrap.dat file:

1.   Download bootstrap.dat.xz from mirrors or torrent.
2.   Decompress the bootstrap.dat.
3.   Put it into the Fastcoin datadir. "%appdata%/fastcoin" / "~/.fastcoin"
   (This is the same folder that contains wallet.dat and the blocks folder.)
4.   Delete bootstrap.dat.old if you want to recover some storage space.

    Fastcoin Data Folder

    Linux
Code: [Select]
xz -d bootstrap.dat.xz Fastcoin's data directory is located in ~/.fastcoin/ by default. You can run ls -a to see
directories that start with a period. You can also search for the directory with the following
command:
Code: [Select]
find / -name wallet.dat -print 2>/dev/null
   Mac
You can obtain xz from MacPorts or http://macpkg.sourceforge.net/.
Fastcoin's data directory should be located in ~/Library/Application Support/Fastcoin/.

   Windows
7Zip is a free utility that can decompress .xz files, so does the latest version of WinRAR.

Click on Start then Run (or press WinKey+R) and type:
Code: [Select]
explorer %APPDATA%\Fastcoin Fastcoin's data directory will open. "AppData" and "Application Data" are hidden by default in
Windows.

   Copy bootstrap.dat to data directory

Copy the bootstrap.dat to your data directory. Load the Fastcoin client and wait for it to load the
blocks. After loading is complete, the bootstrap.dat will be renamed to bootstrap.dat.old at which
point you can choose to delete it.
