IOG just released a new version of Cardano node (v1.27.0).
This node version has important new functionality, including supporting new CLI commands that have been requested by stake pools, providing garbage collection metrics.
It includes the performance fixes for the epoch boundary calculation that were released in node version 1.26.2, plus a number of bug fixes and code improvements.
It also includes many fundamental changes that are needed to prepare for forthcoming feature releases (notably Plutus scripts in the Alonzo era).
Note that this release includes breaking changes to the API and CLI commands, and that compilation using GHC version 8.6.5 is no longer supported.
These are all good news as we can see continuous improvement on the Cardano code as we move to smart contracts later in the year.
Over the weekend, WISH Pool successfully updated all of our nodes in testnet and mainnet to the latest version 1.27.0. Further details about the changes in this version can be found in this link.
