Dear Algorand Community,
We are proposing a new MainNet and TestNet release, v2.0.6, targeted for availability Wednesday 4/22/2020 which will include miscellaneous bug fixes and small changes. This change requires a consensus upgrade. Since this is a consensus upgrade, the voting threshold of 90% must be successfully reached before the network upgrades. Once the threshold is met, the upgrade-required window of 140k blocks (or approximately 7 days) will begin. If you have not upgraded your client by the end of the upgrade-required window the node will cease to be a part of the Algorand network. For an in-depth explanation on Alogrand network upgrades, please visit https://algorand.foundation/protocol-development.
As mentioned above, this release isn’t focused around a major feature, but rather focuses on small quality-of-life changes and bug fixes. For a full list of these changes, you can reference the following BetaNet releases that are planned to be rolled into this upcoming MainNet and TestNet release, v2.0.6:
*Note: BetaNet versioning is different from MainNet and TestNet. Those links above are accurate despite the differences in version numbers.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
