Blockchain Release: New snapshot and timeout fixes

· One min read

The core developers have tagged a new 2021.05.24.1 Hotspot firmware release which changes S3 snapshot download timeout to a more relaxed limit and updates the blessed snapshot to 858241. This is an optional, but recommended upgrade for all miners and will be automatic for all Hotspots using the Helium firmware when we GA.

miner#786: Bump snapshot to 858241 and update blockchain-core

This change updates the latest blessed snapshot to 858241 and updates blockchain-core dependency to pick up snapshot timeout fixes.

miner#784: Fix bash script for GA docker tags

This change fixes a misconfigured match statement which was previously preventing trigger docker builds whenever the team would GA a new firmware tag.

blockchain-core#812: Increase snapshot download timeout

This change increases the snapshot download timeout limits set to more acceptable values. Furthermore it handles a sentinel error value when importing snapshots.


We have been beta testing 2021.05.24.1 since May 24th, 2021 6:30 PM PT. Current ETA for GA is 9:00 PM PT, May 24th, 2021.
