Releases and Updates

Stellar Core v14.1.1 is out! This release fixes a critical issue (that’s existed in all previous versions of Stellar Core) that may cause some nodes to fail to replay historical data. The issue can cause nodes to corrupt their local state, and the only way to recover is to reset the local state. Find the release here.
