# Price Oracles Initial Release

This release lands support for the HNT/USD price oracle. The code will be inactive until activated via chain variable transaction, which we expect to do Friday afternoon or Monday.

In addition to this, we've also landed several smaller fixes and improvements, largely to snapshots. We've also upgraded our libsodium library which has led to a backwards incompatible change to encrypted streams. This means that during the upgrade the consensus group will not be able to operate in mixed mode, all the nodes will need to be upgraded to resume block production.

### Plan​

A 2020.06.03.0 release was deployed to the beta group in the evening of Wednesday the 3rd around 8:50PM PDT. After this beta period was released to GA around Thursday the 4th around 10:15AM PST.
