Production Version: 2.4.2
Released: 03 June 2022
This is the latest stable Ardor release, the wallet for Ardor and all of its child chains - Ignis, BitSwift, and Triffic. See the full Release Notes for what is new in this release.
Experimental Version: 3.0.1e
Released: 17 February 2022
The experimental Ardor 3.0 releases are for testing the snapshotting and pruning functionality. This is a testnet-only version, which uses a new testnet, independent from the current Ardor 2 testnet. It is not yet available for mainnet and does not include source code. Advanced users who want to join the new testnet and try the Ardor scalability solution working in practice are welcome to setup nodes running 3.0.1e and report their experience and any issues encountered. This version can run in parallel with the current testnet or mainnet as it uses different peer and API ports. See the Full Ardor 3.0 Changelog for more information about the 3.0 experimental releases.
