The core developers have tagged a new 2021.08.02.0 Hotspot firmware release which updates the currently blessed snapshot and handles IPv6 addresses in bogon check. This release also removes the default Helium production router from the static configuration to help meet the demands on utilization on the network

This is an optional but recommended release for Hotspot owners and manufacturers to continue syncing with newly blessed snapshots.

We have been beta testing 2021.08.02.0 since Aug 2nd, 2021 10:30 AM PT. Current ETA for GA is 5:00 PM PT, Aug 2nd, 2021.

Additional Notes

After issuing the GA release yesterday, the core developers noticed that the release did not include the specific libp2p fix referenced above. We will be issuing a subsequent release 2021.08.02.1 at 10:30 AM PT, Aug 3rd 2021.
