The Nova developers have tagged a new 2022.12.13.0 Hotspot release for Original Helium Hotspots. This release prepares Hotspots for off-chain proof-of-coverage by updating the automatic beacon rate to every 6 hours, adds “jitter” to the beacon rate such that in the event all Hotspots come online at the same time, the PoC system is not overwhelmed with PoC.

Plan

We have been testing 2022.12.13.0 since December 13, 2022. Release for Original Helium Hotspots will be December 13, 2022 at 2:15pm PST. GA for other Hotspot Manufacturers is December 19, 2022 at 9:30am PST.
