The team has been busy working on a new blockchain chain release tagged
2020.11.17.0. This release
contains a few new features:
|Transfer hotspot||blockchain-core#659, miner#555||HIP13|
|Remove score from consensus group||blockchain-core#676, miner#561||HIP16|
NOTE: Each of the above features will remain dormant until we activate their corresponding chain variables. This release is in preparation for the support for the above features.
We have also updated the snapshot block to
591841 to allow newly onboarded hotspots to sync faster
to the current blockchain head block.
Chain Variable Activation Schedule
The team has settled on the below chain variable activation schedule for the features mentioned above. We will keep the community apprised if this changes.
|Feature||Proposed Activation Date|
|Transfer hotspot||Planned: Monday Nov 23, 2020|
|Remove score from consensus group||Planned: Monday Nov 23, 2020|
|Beaconing Rewards||Tentative: End of November|
NOTE: There's some remaining work to be done to implement transfer hotspot using the CLI and will be prioritized as one of the last features of the v2 mobile app.
We have been beta testing
2020.11.17.0 since November 17th, 2020. Once the team is comfortable
with initial testing, we plan on releasing to GA at 10:00 AM PST, November 19th 2020.
