The core developers have tagged a new 2021.07.15.0 Hotspot firmware release which introduces more snapshot related fixes. This is a mandatory release for Hotspot owners and manufacturers to continue syncing with newly blessed snapshots.

This release improves on the previous release and fixes some critical issues related to light gateway support, snapshot disagreement and non-invalidation (follow) mode. As many community members have noticed, there hasn’t been a blessed snapshot on the blockchain for a while, the core developers believe that the fixes in this new release will further improve chances of getting a snapshot on chain.

Plan

We have been beta testing 2021.07.15.0 since July 15th, 2021 10:00 AM PT. Current ETA for GA is 12:00 PM PT, July 15th, 2021.
