Gridcoin 4.0.6.0-Leisure "Ernestine" Release
Wait you say? Another "E" milestone release? Yes, indeed! There is so much going into Fern, and we were originally going to do a hotfix only, but we decided to do a release with the hotfixes and most of the non-mandatory stuff for Fern in a second "E" milestone. So, enjoy Ernestine.

Thanks to the core devs and the testers under @barton26 for testing the post Elizabeth code and the release candidates!

Some highlights worth mentioning:
- Random shuffle of sidestake entries if more than six are specified to allow more than six entries to sidestake.
- Multisig tools for easier multisig administration
- Port of Bitcoin "Peers" tab and port of Bitcoin banning manager
- Selection of smallest rather than random UTXO's to send contracts (beacons and votes)
- Handle the missing external CPID in client_state.xml which was causing some people to not show as researchers
- Support boost 1.70+ for the newest Arch and others moving to ultra new boost versions.
- Lots of other stuff to set the stage for Fern that isn't visible on the surface yet.

@nickpar ·
Very nice :D
getunconfirmedbalance is a great addition to the rpc so I can now quickly see incoming unconfirmed transactions.
The peers tab is also a handy addition.
Thank You!!
