Node version 8.10.0-pre Is Live On Sanchonet

For our SPO Community, please note that node version 8.10.0-pre is live on SanchoNet. This release includes the latest governance changes, support for Plutus v3’s new cost model and byte string primitives, and updates related to the Constitution Committee quorum and economic parameters. Additionally, reference scripts in the Conway era are now supported. It is important to note, that this node version should only be used on SanchoNet. SanchoNet was respun over the weekend but is now operational. Due to the respin DReps and SPOs have to reregister to be able to participate again. If you’re not already on SanchoNet, now is the time to familiarize yourself with Cardano governance. The full release notes can be found here.
