Pool operations are encouraged to update to this version which introduces improved operations
Cardano developers are urging Stake Pool Operators (SPOs) to update to the latest version of Node, 8.1.1, which was released earlier today.
The recent update will improve operations across the platform by distributing previously focused epoch limit calculations throughout the epoch.
This change aims to make transitions between epochs, or time periods on the blockchain, smoother for users.
Cardano community member Rick McCracken also shared that Node 8.1.1 addresses Peer-to-peer (P2P) and Domain Name System (DNS) issues.
Fixing these issues adds another layer of efficiency to the Cardano mainnet, making it a more attractive platform for new and existing users.
The release of Node 8.1.1 once again demonstrates the developer team’s continued commitment to improving its blockchain technology.
The Cardano team strongly encourages all SPOs to update to this latest version, highlighting its readiness for mainnet use and the significant improvements it introduces.
Ignoring the technical complexities underlying blockchain technology, this update boils down to providing an improved and more efficient user experience on the Cardano platform.
