The Swarm network was abuzz with activity in May and there’s a lot of ground to cover, so let’s dive right in. The Bee Track has released versions 1.15.0 and 1.16.0, introducing new features and several improvements. In version 1.15.0, a new pushsync feature has been introduced to improve chunk syncing and replication during uploading. Other enhancements include improved blocklist display, storage radius adjustment, chainstate total amount, and peer mode added to the status protocol, and reduced workload during initial historical syncing.
