Update zcash to 1.0.7

Maybe someone can explain me how to update to the latest zcash step by step.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Assuming you downloaded the git repository and your path is ~/zcash, here are the steps to pull and build 1.0.7-1.

$ cd zcash
$ git checkout master
$ git pull && git checkout v1.0.7-1
$ make clean
$ ./zcutil/build.sh -j$(nproc)

yes I did, so I am also not losing my t-addresses when doing the update?

The update process does not affect the ~/.zcash data directory where your wallet is stored.

Also, you should backup your wallet data file "just in case".

See the full ~/.zcash directory using:
ls -la ~/.zcash

the "wallet.dat" file is the one you want to backup.

Thanks a lot for your information. Maybe you also know how to update nheqminer for Ubuntu?

I do not. Try asking on this thread perhaps: https://forum.zcashcommunity.com/t/miner-nicehash-zcash-cpu-gpu-for-linux-and-windows/2861
