The core developers have tagged a new 2022.05.24.0 miner release. This release is mandatory for all Hotspot Makers. Contained in this release are chain variables to support Validator Performance (to be activated some time after May 25 9:00AM PT). Failure to update your fleet before the chain variables are activated will cause the Hotspot to stop functioning as Hotspots still follow the blockchain.

This release also adds a timeout on gen_tcp connect on the HTTP2 client and monitors the connection to restart on unexpected disconnects.
