The core developers have tagged a new 2021.12.06.0 Hotspot firmware release which includes recommended fixes to Seed nodes and DNS query improvements.

Hotspot manufacturers should update to this release when possible in order to give their customers access to these improvements. It specifically helps Hotspots in parts of Europe who have ISPs with specific DNS settings (enforcing packet sizes for DNSSEC) and it also improves peer gossip (reducing the amount of stale data that is shared amongst the 380K+ nodes in the network).

Plan

We have been beta testing 2021.12.06.0 since December 06, 2021 07:45 AM PT. Current ETA for GA is 1:30 PM PT, December 06, 2021.
