Lightning lnd v0.5-beta has been released!

This release marks the 5th major release release of lnd: v0.5-beta! This release marks a massive step in the robustness and reliability of lnd as a routing node daemon for the Lightning Network. Additionally, a number of optimizations have been implemented which will reduce the memory and CPU footprint of lnd making it more amendable to run on smaller devices like Raspberry Pis and also eventually mobile phones! A number of bug fixes related to reliable HTLC forwarding, persistence recovery, and path finding have also landed in this release. As a result users should generally find path finding to be a smoother experience, and should find that lnd is able to recover from a number of partial and complete failures in routine protocol exchanges.

The 0.5-beta release doesn't include any strictly breaking changes. So a result, users should find the upgrade process to be smooth. If one is upgrading from 0.4.2, the initial starting logs should look something like:
