Hi Tom

Please don't post release announcements for software that is
incompatible with the current bitcoin consensus rules here.
Otherwise we give green-lights to any sorts of altcoin to post their
releases here.


> Bitcoin Classic version 1.2.0 is now available from;
>  <https://bitcoinclassic.com/gettingstarted.html>
> This is a new major version release, including new features, various 
> bugfixes and performance improvements.
> This release marks a change in strategy for Bitcoin Classic, moving from the 
> very conservative block size proposal based on compromise to one where 
> Classic truly innovates and provides a long term solution for the market to 
> choose and leave behind the restrictions of the old.
> The most visible change in this version is the decentralised block size 
> solution where node operators decide on the maximum size.
> Bitcoin Classic is focused on providing users a way to get onto the Bitcoin 
> network using a high quality validating node for a large set of use cases. 
> Classic presents top notch quality processes in this release, to help anyone 
> running Bitcoin.
> We include in this release various projects with the beta label. People who 
> want to use the Classic node as an on-ramp to Bitcoin will find them 
> interesting. These projects will need to be enabled in the config by those 
> that want to test them.
> More background information on this release and Classic can be seen in this 
> video: https://vimeo.com/192789752
