Miner Release: Additional Fixes for Light Hotspots

· One min read

The core developers have tagged a new 2022.05.10.0 miner release. This release is highly recommended for all Hotspot Makers.

We request that Hotspot Manufacturers upgrade their fleets ASAP.

This update contains performance fixes to Hotspots as Light Hotspots are activated, specifically adding additional seed Validators to reduce load on the Validator fleet. This also ensures that Challenges with zero receipts are excluded from reward calculations.

  • #1578 Add correct gain measurement to region update responses requested by miners from validators when no longer following the chain in light mode
  • #1592 Add new seed validators to embedded rust light gateway's default config (gateway-rs update)
  • #1584 Skip 0 response receipt txns from rewards calculation
  • #1579 Select correct packet routing module for downlink packets when miner running in light mode


We have been testing 2022.05.10.0 on Mainnet since May 10 11:30am PT. Current ETA for GA is May 10, 2022 1:00 PM PT.
