BetaNet Update: Version 2.0.11

We are planning to upgrade BetaNet to version 2.0.11 on Tuesday, Feb 25th 2020 10:30AM EST.

This upgrade contains few performance improvements. If you have your

node set to automatic updates, you don’t need to do anything. It will automatically update to the newer version whenever that becomes available.

If this is not the case, you can update the binary, but aren’t required to do so. Given that this isn’t a protocol upgrade release, no upgrade is required.

Summary of Contained Changes in Upgrade:

  1. Performance

    • Provide explicit msgpack encoder/decoders to improve overall performance
  2. Misc

    • Improve existing build automation tooling

To update your current version of BetaNet to 2.0.11, run the following goal command:

./ -c beta -i -d <betanet-data-directory> -n

If you haven’t already done so, we also advise setting up a CRON job to automatically update your algorand networks. If you haven’t done this for BetaNet, you can follow the instructions here:
