Dear @kovan-validators ,
Parity has released stable version 2.4.7 , we suggest to update parity binaries on the nodes of Kovan network.
POA has updated its validator and bootnodes a few days ago and didn’t find any new issues so far.
Since this is the first time we do this kind of update, we propose to do it one-by-one (say, in alphabetical order, so starting with Lab10 @tze42 ) to minimize possible downtime:
NOTE: after restart you may encounter a known parity bug, see more info and how to restore blockchain database in https://forum.poa.network/t/update-parity-version/2663
