The core developers have tagged a new 2021.11.02.0 Hotspot firmware release which includes two critical blockchain-core fixes, firstly, blockchain core can now handle v1 and v2 block gossip seamlessly; secondly, the developers noticed that the transaction_validity_version chain variable definition was set incorrectly in the header file, this has been fixed. An unfortunate effect of this is that transfer_hotspot_v2 support has been slightly delayed.

This is a mandatory update for manufacturers in order to correctly handle future transfer_hotspot_v2 transactions once transaction_validity_version chain variable appears on chain. Future notices will be sent in relevant channels.

Plan

We have been beta testing 2021.11.02.0 since November 02, 2021 5:45 PM PT. Current ETA for GA is 5:00 PM PT, November 03, 2021.
