Referendum 190, proposing to upgrade the Kusama relay chain and system parachains to runtime v9240, has passed. It will execute at block 18_062_739 (in approximately two days). https://kusama.polkassembly.io/referenda/190

Although Referendum 177, proposing funding for Proposal Audit reports, passed, it failed to be enacted due to premature preimage unnoting. Thus the same Referendum has been re-proposed as Ref 203. https://kusama.polkassembly.io/referenda/203

With one day left in the current parachain lease auction, parathread ID 2270 has been in the lead the majority of the Ending Period, but Altair and parathread ID 2267 have also been in the lead for short periods of time. Kusama Auctions and Crowdloans | Parachains.info
