New version of the Mainnet Staging Branch

Hey guys,

The new storage backend has just been released in mainnet-staging. Update instructions including more detailed information can be found here:


If I choose not to reboot and run in the updated storage mode. Will my node still benefit from some of the other optimized features highlighted in the “Changelog section” such as the shell, baker, codec, etc.?

Hey Jovan,

The answer is no. You will need to update in order to benefit from these features.

When will this become mandatory?

Hi @Lindw0rm,

In theory nothing is mandatory. However, it’s possible that by the time the next protocol upgrade gets activated there might be no other implementation to choose from!
