Bobcat Miner OTA Update - 05/19/2022

May 19, 2022 - Bobcat pushed the latest OTA update at 4:30 pm PDT on 5/19/22. 


The following updates occurred in this OTA:

Bobcat Firmware version bumped to 1.0.2.92 (no changes)

Helium Firmware version updated to 2022.05.19.0_GA


From Helium:

This release is highly recommended for all Hotspot Makers.


This update adds a retry delay when sending PoC Witness Receipts (from a Hotspot to a Validator) so that it has a better chance of succeeding if the Validator falls behind a few blocks from the tip of the chain.


Hotspots without this release will still function but will greatly improve rewards. No action is required by Hotspot Owners.
