Gridcoin Research 3.5.0.4/MSI=30.9
Leisure Upgrade
 
- Added contract & superblock index fields to Prod starting at block 364500 for faster boot time (this is approx. when Research Age is released).
- Added static contracts & superblocks hashes to Prod for blocks 1-300000 for faster boot time (70% of the increase occurs now, 30% more on Nov 1 2015)
- Added new upgrade system (grcrestarter.exe) that will accurately upgrade without timezones, 404s, verifies file checksums and signatures etc.  Made wallet NeedsUpgrade honor new upgrade checksums.
- Require client to be in sync to stake a superblock
- Require neural network to be synced within 12 hours to create a contract, and be complete.
- Added switch for 24 hour superblocks (currently 12 in prod and 24 in testnet)
 
** Testing the new Upgrade Feature:  Upgrade to 3.5.0.4 through the MSI if necessary.  Manually delete any `.config` files in c:\\program files (x86)\\gridcoinresearch.  
   Then do a `grcrestarter upgrade`.  Later today I will push out a test release so we can verify this new upgrade system is working properly with changes.  **
   
  
  Side Note:  I believe the 404 error on the old upgrade site is actually fixed today, so you can go ahead and try to upgrade the old way first, and then see if 'grcrestarter upgrade' uses the new system or not afterwards.

- Added avg superblock magnitude to `list superblocks`
- Added 90 min avg magnitude rule to Prod with backwards compatibility (10 for testnet)
- Set users config file if they cancel the new user wizard, set user as investor, and force four addnodes in, and initialize mapargs and addnodes after newuser wizard ends.

Gridcoin Research 3.5.1.7/MSI=35.9
Mandatory Upgrade (before block 364500)
 
- Plugged vulnerability discovered by bitcoin - please upgrade to this new version asap
- Added checkpoint
- Research Age starts at block 364500
- Mandatory (auto disconnect of other nodes) automatically starts at 364500
- Added business logic to verify superblocks to enforce quality of magnitude averages and project averages
- Only lock neural network grid/buttons during sync, show the progress bar, sync efficiency improved, allow user to minimize during sync 
  Note: Efficiency will not improve until 364500  :)
- Retreive explainmagnitude from a synced node otherwise retry (with daily limit of 10 retries)
- Superblock Spacing: 86400
- Expanded block index starts at 364500 (stores votes/superblock indicators more efficiently)
- Added logging to Neural Network sync process (Dreibo, please check debug2.txt)
- Lets burn this in tonight and verify everything (even though we won't be in the RA phase) - before we ask the exchanges to upgrade

Gridcoin Research 3.5.1.8/MSI=36.0
Mandatory Upgrade (before block 364500)
 
- Fixed getinfo/explainmagnitude/Literal error
- Added witnesses field to Neural Network (When a supermajority of the NN participants agree on one CPIDs individual project RAC on a given day, the nodes will share the information during the quorum for the duration of the day) resulting in higher efficiency and less re-querying project sites for that distinct entry.
  Grid is no longer locked during syncing.  Note that the sync should speed up after our next superblock.

Gridcoin Research 3.5.1.9d/MSI=36.1
Mandatory Upgrade (before block 364500)
 
- Fixed large inefficiency in Neural Network
- Fixed crash popup sourced from neural network
- Fixed partial sync problem (bug) - Dreibo I think this may fix your issue also.  Changed color of the final part of the progress bar to white as it was being blocked by green.
  Note, give client 10 seconds after boot before going into NN and doing the execute syncdpor2.  This req. will be removed after the next superblock.  Performance should increase  after the first 5% of the local NN is synced.

Gridcoin Research 3.5.2.2/MSI=36.3
Leisure Upgrade
 
- Added investors_cannot_send_beacons to advertise beacon
- Fixed incorrect Offline message in the overview page
- Labeled "Foundation Poll" vs "Poll" in overview
- Added logging to GRCRestarter for -11 error reported in Spain

- Linux Menus:  Moved startup process to a background thread: Note, it may take a couple of minutes for the core to populate after booting in this new version as we are trying to fix the menus across all distros.  
We will lengthen the splash screen duration after we know the problem is fixed.
