· One min read

This 2020.07.29.0 release fixes a bug in miner that resulted in numerous downlink LoRa packets being dropped.

In addition, this release upgrades the Linux image on the Helium Hotspot to Buildroot 2020.02.1. This LTS release of Buildroot includes various security fixes and allowed us to upgrade the onboard Erlang/OTP installation to 22.3.1.

Lastly, this release also bumps the onboard blessed snapshot to block height 435601.
