We started working on a new way to switch between root & ledger peers (see
below). We continued to work on
eclipse-evasion. We merged changes to
Handshake contributed by Galois Inc. We made improvements to our tests (fixed
a flaky test, added cddl specs for
NodeToClientVersionData). We improved our CI and automated the process of

We continued to work on testing
We came up with an idea to limit how full node wallets relay on root peers (currently operated by IOG, in future also CF and Emurgo). We designed a switch to use ledger peers if the node tip is close enough to the current time. For more details see #4530.
We merged changes to the handshake mini-protocol which allow one to query
node-to-client parameters. We are grateful to
Galois Inc. for implementing it, #4256 and #4538. We published new version
of packages to CHaP chap-#253.
DiffusionError wrapper. Thanks to it,
not duplicate diffusion errors messages in the log, #4537.
We fixed an issue which caused one of our tests to be flaky, #4515.
We wrote scripts which will help us release packages as well as verify that we released all the package necessary to build the newest set of packages, #4542.
We renamed the consensus startup tracer and make sure it doesn't log
ExitSuccess exceptions, consensus-#71.
We reviewed PR which adds
RawBearer API, #4395.
We made series of improvements to our CI:
- #4539: we don't need to install cryptographic libraries in CI;
- #4545: Javier Sagredo (consensus) cleaned up CI after
consensusmoved to a new repo;
- #4546: we switched to use GitHub merge queues;
- #4549: we made it possible to trigger building haddocks manually;
- #4553: we fixed and enhanced caching of building dependencies.
