This most recent update (from 0.13.99 to 0.15.99) will prompt you to do a re-index. If you are using the GUI client, the re-index will show the bottom progress bar go from 0% to 100% fairly quickly, and then the "real" re-index will start (start over) and the stats shown in the GUI will update.

So far, on multiple computers, the GUI freezes after some time and needs to be force-quit, which I've found is not harmful but does not save any of the re-indexing progress.

The fix I've found is to let the GUI do that first faux re-index where none of the stats update, and then as soon as the second re-index begins, go to File and Exit the application cleanly. (This saves the state of the re-index.) Then run the namecoind command line daemon and let that do the re-index and sync. It should finish within a couple hours, and you'll know it's completed when you run "$ namecoin-cli getblockchaininfo" and the "blocks" value and the "headers"value are the same value and both values are the most recent block. When that happens, run "$ namecoin-cli stop" to shut it down, wait a little bit for the process to close, and then you can open the GUI and use it as you normally would.

If you find that the software does not run after you've updated your packages (but not this package), then you just need to re-install this package. The problem that occurs is that the shared library files get updated/renamed, and so Namecoin can't find them where it expects to find them. But when re-installing this package, the make script will detect the new location of those shared libraries.

@RogueScholar It was not a typo -- that is the version they list for the commit I used in the package, which was the most recent commit at the time the package was created.

However, since this isn't a git-latest package, I really should be just using the official releases rather than arbitrary commits, so I've downgraded to the most recent release, which at the time of this post is nc0.13.99-name-tab-beta1.

Thanks for the comment!

Edit: If you've installed the 0.14.99 version, this downgrade to 0.13.99 will require a database rebuild (which Namecoin will prompt you to do when you run it). There's no getting around that. Your wallet file (and all your names and money) will be fine, you'll just need to wait a bit for the database to re-sync.

Thanks for putting this together. Is it possible the version number listed is a typo? The Git shows that the project has been at version 0.13.99-name-tab-beta1 since last October.
