Beta IV is out recently and we’re coming at you with a patch release. This release, codenamed Human Solidarity (v0.9.1), addresses the priority issues noticed from the major release.

On the provider side, we noticed an important issue that needs to be addressed in 0.9.0 where it was difficult to set pricing with the CLi (this needed a workaround to be changed). Included in this patch is Pull Request (PR) #1766. This fixes all settings invocations (i.e. golemsp settings set). Provider settings can now be properly updated via golemsp (pricing, nodename, etc).

A minor change to the Payment Service is also included in the Human Solidarity patch, PR #1763 Fixes gas price setting. The Polygon gas pricing policy is now properly separated from other payment networks.

Installing and Upgrading Golem - Yagna v0.9.1

Starting out or going from the recent major releases to this patch release involves running only the quick installation command. After stopping Golem / Yagna (with CTRL+C), run the command below and you’re all up to date!


curl -sSf | bash -


curl -sSf | bash -

As a requestor, you might also want to keep in mind that it's possible you need to create a new app-key when you go to create your next task (you'll be given an error mentioning this if it's the case).

As security advice for both requestors and providers, you should be backing up your keys if you have mainnet tokens. You can back up your keys to your wallet with the export command (while Golem is running):

yagna id export --file-path=./key.json

If you’re just getting started with Golem for the first time, you want to go to the handbook. It includes the installation steps as a Provider or Requestor, along with explanations and important details such as Command-Line Interface (CLI). Please see the Polygon Explained video for those of you who are more visual learners and want to know what the Polygon payment driver means for the Golem community.
