Urgent: Mandatory upgrade to Decred software required.
Decred's 1.4.0 release brings significant improvements, along with a proposed change to the consensus rules which fixes a bug with the Lightning Network support. As the vote cannot begin until 95% of PoW miners have upgraded, it is imperative that mining pools upgrade at their earliest convenience. Please be reminded that if stakeholders perceive an unreasonable delay with PoW miners upgrading to allow this vote to proceed, it is within the power of PoS voters to withhold block rewards from miners who do not upgrade. Developers need this fix to be applied so that they can get on with the important work of bringing Lightning Network to Decred.
