The worried look on Przemek’s face says it all — there is an issue on our newest release.

Hi Golem users, your feedback on Brass Golem Beta 0.18 was heard loud and clear — thank you for your input. We have identified and been able to address a couple of issues that you had stumbled upon.

Based on our new process — incremental upgrades to our flagship product, today we are launching a minor patch update — Brass Golem Beta 0.18.1.

The fixes include a bugfix to the golem cli account infocommand that allows you to display the current balances and basic information about your node, found to be malfunctioning on mainnet nodes. Additionally, a shortcoming in Golem’s local database has been addressed. This should improve the matching of incoming GNT payments for users who have migrated from older Golem versions.

Finally, 0.18.0 introduced an issue to the result verification procedure that the tests in our local environments didn’t uncover before the release. The fix included in 0.18.1 should significantly improve the ratio of positive verifications for correctly computed tasks.

To use Golem at its fullest potential, we encourage you to update and test the latest Brass Golem. The patch upgrade should be completely painless for those of you who had already upgraded to 0.18.0 and will only improve your experience with our product.

To find a more detailed changelog, details and troubleshooting information, please visit our official GitHub repository. Should you have any comments, feedback, issue reports et. al., please don’t hesitate to contact us through our Rocket channel, Reddit or e-mail at contact@golem.network. Once again, your opinion matters and helps make Golem stronger, better and more efficient.
