Following our significant announcement five days ago, we've identified a couple of issues that necessitate immediate attention. To enhance the network's functionality and the validators experience, we are rolling out a new patch - v1.6.10.
Key Highlights of the Release:
- Size and Scope: This release is relatively minor in scale but important for network stability and performance.
- Backward Compatibility: The upgrade is fully compatible with the existing v18.104.22.168 version, ensuring a smooth transition with no disruptions if you already upgraded your nodes to v1.6.7
- Key Fixes:
- Addressing potential performance degradation during node upgrade from v1.5.x to v1.6.x.
- Resolving issues in the single-key redundancy node to minimize Validator/Leader Failures.
- No Separate Activation Epoch for 1.6.10: This patch does not require a specific activation epoch.
- Reminder for 1.6.7 Activation: The activation epoch for version v1.6.7 is scheduled for epoch 1265, will occur as planned on January 16th, 2024, around 16:05 UTC.
Action Required: We invite all validators to update their nodes to version 1.6.10 by the specified date to ensure continued stability and performance of the network.
