As we gear up for expanding the Helium network to other regions we’ve been threading region awareness through our code. As of this release the Helium Network will support hotspots in the EU868 region as well as the currently supported US915 region.

Additionally we’ve identified an issue that leads to Hotspots being unable to sync a snapshot over a low bandwidth or high latency link. We’ve improved the situation somewhat and will work on delivering a more comprehensive fix next week.


A 2020.06.05.1 release was deployed to the beta group around 3pm on the afternoon of Friday the 4th PST. Once we’ve validated everything looks good we will release it to GA this evening.
