Monero Beryllium Bullet new features, direct download links for Windows, Mac and Linux

Monero Beryllium Bullet

Monero Beryllium Bullet software update has been released and this prepares you for the scheduled protocol upgrade, slated to happen on the October 18th 2018. This requires a database connection that may take few hours to complete. In the meantime, it will show disconnected / unable to connect from the monerod daemon.

Direct download links

If you’re upgrading, following steps must be followed:

* Download the new binaries (the .zip file (Windows) or the tar.bz2 file (Mac OS X and Linux)) from aforementioned download links.
* Extract the new binaries to a new directory / folder of your liking. This is the easiest and recommended way.
* Open monero-wallet-gui1. It should automatically load your “old” wallet2.

If you’re running a local node, the integrated daemon (monerod) will first have to convert your database to a new version. This may take a few hours and the GUI may show that it’s Disconnected. I’d advise to simply let it run and after the database conversion has completed the GUI will connect back to the daemon (monerod).

(1) On Linux you ought to start the GUI with the script, i.e., ./
(2) If, for some reason, the GUI doesn’t automatically load your old wallet, you can open it as follows:
[1] On the second page of the wizard (first page is language selection) choose Open a wallet from file
[2] Now select your initial / original wallet. Note that, by default, the wallet files are located in Documents\Monero\<wallet-name> (Windows), Users/<username>/Monero/<wallet-name> (Mac OS X), or home/<username>/Monero/<wallet-name> (Linux).

Lastly, note that a blockchain resync is not needed.
