The core developers have tagged a new 2021.12.09.0 Hotspot firmware release which includes a recommended bug fix in erlang-libp2p. This change potentially mitigates the zero-witness beacon issue that has been afflicting, mostly, relayed Challenger Hotspots failing to receive witness receipts. Special thanks to @groot#3396 and others in the #poc-discussion channel on Discord for their efforts in tracking this issue down.

Plan

We have been beta testing 2021.12.09.0 since December 09, 2021 09:56 AM PT. Current ETA for GA is 11:00 AM PT, December 09, 2021.
