Update 2.1.0 (pre-release fix)

Update 2.1.0

This update brings stability improvements for the network and for clients, especially in cases where only a small percentage of the network is live.

The permissioning server in a companion update has been modified to prune the NDF to remove offline nodes. This hotfix to the server makes the server wait until it is seen as online before operating and improves its ability to recover in a variety of edge cases.

Overall, this fix will greatly improve the likelihood the network will be able to process real messages on the release date (3/18/2021) if many nodes have not yet been updated.

This update also simplifies some uses of config files in both server and gateway to be more streamlined.

Lastly, this update brings a lazy form of signature checking to clients and gateways to reduce the load on clients in a large network. This will now no longer check signatures which do not relate to rounds they either do not send or receive messages on, reducing overhead and increasing performance.
