Known Issues

There is a known issue where harvesters will not reconnect to the farmer automatically unless you restart the harvester. This bug was introduced in 1.3.4 and we plan to patch it in a coming release.

I highly recommend updating if you’re on 1.3.4 or an earlier version of 1.3. The main branch has been running stable for me for over 2 weeks, and already updated to 1.3.5 yesterday without issue. Luckily, I haven’t run across the problem with harvesters not reconnecting.

I also installed the 1.3.5 yesterday on 2nodes and 4 harvesters no problem so far. I like how in the plots tab now it shows the local harvester and the remote harvester along with the plot count. I’m also testing 1.3.6121.0 beta’s on two machines 1 farmer and 1 harvester.

Didn’t see any material improvement in farm startup time on my farm with 19470 plots. I use default settings for the plot refresh. It still takes some 10 minutes to scan all the plots.

Notably, if you installed chia software 1.3.4 using apt-get as described in the instructions:

sudo apt-get install chia-blockchain-cli

… the Ubuntu GUI automatically detects new version of Chia software and suggests to install it using the software updater. It went smooth for me.

Alternatively, through CLI:

sudo apt-get upgrade chia-blockchain-cli
