Onwards to Kathmandu

Dear bakers and node operators!

The Kathmandu protocol activates on Tezos Mainnet on September 23rd! Please, remember to update your infrastructure to Octez v14.0 before then.

The Octez baker daemon for Kathmandu, tezos-baker-014-PtKathma, requires a mandatory command line flag to set up the baker’s Liquidity Baking toggle vote:

--liquidity-baking-toggle-vote <vote>

It also provides an optional --votefile <file> flag intended to be used to declare the path for a JSON file encoding the baker’s voting preference and which, if present, overrides the default value set by the earlier --liquidity-baking-toggle-vote flag.

More details in the Liquidity Baking documentation.

See also the Kathmandu protocol documentation for the complete description – including potential breaking changes.

If you are still unsure about what needs to be done on your end, feel free to reach out to us on the Tezos Baking Slack or to contact Nomadic Labs’ support team.
