Thanks to the relentless work by our community member Tomo and Albert the community node has been upgraded to the most recent version of 0.11.1 beta.
Among the new features in this release are:
- 10 BTC soft limit for Wumbo channels
- Stability improvements which reduce amount of force-closed channels
- Nodes can be advertised by domain name
- More manual optionality in payment routing by selecting specific channels (improves channel rebalancing)
For more details you can also read the blog entry by Bryan Vu of Lightning Labs on the release:
If you are looking to get more actively involved and see how the Lightning Network is used in a practical manner today, we would encourage you to pass by one of our weekly meetups in Saigon (or if not based here - check out for a good Bitcoin meetup in your area :) ).
If you would like to support the work of the Bitcoin Saigon Community - you can donate some of your Sats to us via our Donation page!
