Release summary

The release of RChain RNode v0.9.9 (57e70da) comes a week after the previous release to deliver a critical fix to a bug that prevented RNode operators from using a stored version of the blockchain when rejoining the network after downtime. Additionally, RNode operators will observe restarted nodes request a fork choice tip and receiving the most recently produced block from validator nodes at restart. Less obvious to users is the completion of the removal of the old RSpace. The new RSpace has been available to users since the release of RNode v0.9.5.
