To allow a better use of the test network, namecoin has been added support for difficulty retarget after 20mn.
Here is the message from the bitcoin commit when this feature has been added : wrote: Allow mining of min-difficulty blocks if 20 minutes have gone by without mining a regular-difficulty block.
Normal rules apply every 2016 blocks, though, so there may be a very-slow-to-confirm block at the difficulty-adjustment blocks.
Too new tags have been added in the repository :
- vQ.3.73-rc1
- nc0.3.52.00-rc1

After several days of tests, official binaries will be built.
