P2Pool v1.9 released with critical bug fix

P2Pool version 1.91 has been released and it fixes a critical bug:

Fixed block template generation bug: a node could mine a share that didn’t pass validation on other nodes resulting in all other nodes banning it. Nodes with high hashrate are the most affected because they mine a lot of shares.

Other changes

Before using the software, you should verify the SHA256 sums with SChernykh2’s GPG key3.

The README4 has valuable information about features, defaults, how pool shares work, build instructions and a short mining guide.
