Dear @kovan-validators ,
Parity has released version 2.6.1 of their client, we suggest to update parity binaries on the nodes of Kovan network.
POA has updated its validator and bootnodes and didn’t find any new issues so far.
You can use our ansible playbook to run the update - on step 2 you would need to set
Please post questions/issues below or in the private support forum if you have any.
Polymath.network updated the parity version to 2.6.1
lab10 updated to 2.6.3, which errored out due to some issues with the chainspec.json, went back on 2.6.2 (which works).
https://github.com/poanetwork/poa-chain-spec/pull/122 seems to be the PR to fix these issues for 2.6.3.
