Issues After Updating to Latest Commit

I just had a rather frustrating experience. Upon updating to the latest commit, my node would not start. So I had to revert back to the previous build. See asciinema here:

But then we noticed that our node was dropping in the leader board stats, so I went to investigate the situation.

Turns out that you if you are not running on this latest commit, 1897d5144a7068e4c0d5764d8c9180563db2fe43,  (or higher by the time you may be reading this), the network will reject your node and you won't be able to produce blocks. In order to resolve this, I had to wipe the ~/.near/data directory and then update to the latest commit again. Then restart and good to go.
