The core developers have tagged a new 2022.08.17.1 miner release. This release disables peer-to-peer activity when the Hotspot is no longer syncing the chain. This improves overall performance for the peer-to-peer network for other participants and stability of the network as a whole. Other improvements include an update to HTTP2 process that the Hotspot uses to communicate to Validators (over GRPC), and a Kerlink-specific improvement that fixes the RSSI computation if the SNR is lower than zero to reduce the number of invalid Proof-of-Coverage challenges and receipts.

#1801 Disable p2p connections when the node is not running the chain #1777 fix rssi computation from rssic if SNR < 0 #1760 bump http2 client, pull in settings flag fix
