The following report is not an exhaustive list of changes included in the release, but a set of changes that we felt deserved to be highlighted due to their impact on the Polkadot ecosystem builders.
Please do not stop reading the release notes v0.9.35. This report is complementary to the changelogs, not a replacement.
Please note that this release is for the Kusama (and Westend) runtime only, and does not include client binaries. It can be considered optional from a Polkadot parachain builders perspective.
The main purpose of this release is to fine-tune some OpenGov parameters on the Kusama runtime and remove the requirement for implicit approval chilling upon slash.
- Kusama v9350
- Westend v9350
Why is this change interesting for builders?
At the moment, chilling process is very restrictive. If a slash is canceled, the chilling is not. This has been a major pain point so far. The purpose of this PR is to protect nominators. Once the slash will be canceled, nominators will be reactivated. You can find the discussion here. This PR adds relaxation to chilling process and removes restrictions on it.
