We are back, with our latest patch release for Brass Golem — Beta 0.18.2. The main feature in this release is the fix to our onboarding flow — the sequence of actions that the user is led through when they launch Golem for the first time.

Other changes are merely cosmetic and encompass minor improvements to various Golem components.

Please update to the latest Brass Golem release. The patch upgrade should be completely painless for those of you who had already upgraded to 0.18.x and will improve your experience with our product.

For a more detailed changelog, details and troubleshooting information, please visit our official GitHub repository and don’t hesitate to contact us through our Rocket channel, reddit or e-mail at contact@golem.network. We would like to remind you, as always, that, your opinion matters and helps make Golem stronger, better and more efficient.
