title: Monero "Helium Hydra" Release
summary: A point release of Monero 0.11.0
tags: [releases]
author: Riccardo Spagni (fluffypony)
### Overview
This is the v0.11.1.0 point release of the Monero software, and it is part of the v0.11 mandatory update. The major release was due to the September 15th hard fork, which in turn increased the minimum ring signature size to 5 across the network, banned duplicate ring members in a ring signature, and enforced the use of ringCT for all transaction outputs. This release of the software presents a number of major improvements to Monero, as well as a large set of bug fixes.
Some highlights of this point release are:
- fixed a bug where, in an edge case, the wallet wouldn't see the first transaction to it
- added an option to change wallet creation height and rescan wallet cache
- changed the default required confirmations to 10
- reworked testnet settings in the wizard
- updated the Windows installer
- made the privacy slider smoother
- the password dialog box is now shown when making a transfer
- added a Romanian translation
- fixed an occasional sync failure that occurred when a transaction was already in the mempool
- added an underflow check on low block heights
- added a guard against a mined block not finding all the transactions in the mempool
- fixed the transaction size estimator for transactions with a large number of inputs
- fixed an LMDB issue on 32-bit systems
- the get_tx_backlog RPC call was unrestricted
- threads now guard against exceptions during transaction verification
- fixed a crash that could occur when checking pre-validated transactions
- various other bug fixes and improvements
