and that is great advantage we have over bitcoin… my personal opinion is that bitcoin miners are blocking development of bitcoin. it’s not the miners that should DECIDE what features may or may not enter the chain, it should be USERS.
I think that’s the situation we have. If users wouldn’t trust us, they simply would not update.
As stated, it’s a security release, and we decided not to share the details upfront, not to put everyone at risk.
