Releasing version 12.0 of Octez

Version 12.0 of Octez has just been released.

Compared to 12.0~rc2, version 12.0 fixes a bug in the Octez Ithaca2 baker implementation, and improves RPC support for the Ithaca2 protocol (e.g., to enable compatibility with TRD). Moreover, this version reduces the Octez Tezos node CPU and memory usage. This version is also compatible with newer versions of gcc and glibc and can thus be compiled on the latest version of Ubuntu in particular.

Full changelog and update instructions are available in the version 12 release page: Version 12.0 — Tezos (master branch, 2022/02/23 18:29) documentation

The Git tag for this release is v12.0 and the corresponding commit hash is 409a3f3fe491ba5c9ac51c7124833f4f70006c07 .

Additionally, a new version (2.2.15) of the Ledger wallet application and the Ledger baking application are available on Ledger Live (Ledger Live : Most trusted & secure crypto wallet | Ledger). This new version is necessary for Tenderbake.
