Release: Sirius Patch - v1.6.10

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 v1.6.7.0 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.

Activation Epoch:

  • 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.
