The core developers have tagged a new
2021.05.22.0 Hotspot firmware release which adds S3 download
functionality for snapshots and updates the blessed snapshot to
855361. This is an optional, but
recommended upgrade for all miners and will be automatic for all Hotspots using the Helium firmware
when we GA.
blockchain-core#810: Pull snapshots from S3
This change allows blockchain participants to attempt to download a snapshot file from S3 and install it. If that fails, it will fall back to the current code path. Additionally, it exposes a CLI interface to attempt to grab a snapshot from the p2p code path and save it to a specified file.
We have been beta testing
2021.05.22.0 since May 22nd, 2021 5:30 PM PT. Current ETA for GA is
12:30 PM PT, May 23rd, 2021.
