The team has a new release tagged
2021.02.26.0. This is mostly minor from a Hotspot owner
perspective but there are some major infrastructural improvements which will help us continue to
maintain the code base including an upgrade to Erlang/OTP 23. We also included some region updates
and a snapshot bump.
Support Erlang/OTP 23
Most of the miner and blockchain code base uses Erlang so this is a much needed upgrade to the next version of Erlang/OTP. We are now able to run on OTP 23 and anticipate upgrading to OTP 24 when it is released soon. This required changes to many of the repositories including miner, blockchain-core, and other dependencies.
Build changes to support new architectures

@ke6jjj we've been able to land several updates to dependencies to
enable compilation of our blockchain on FreeBSD and the Apple M1. Thanks!
Thanks to community member
@w0ts0n who added support in miner for the
Cayman Islands. I cyah wait to see the network grow!
We also added support for North Macedonia so hotspots can use the EU868 frequency range.
We have updated the snapshot block to
738001 to allow newly onboarded hotspots to sync faster to
the current blockchain head block.
blockchain-core#732 Speedup Ledger CLI
Small update to help speed up a useful commandline interface that miner operators will appreciate.
