Monthly Development Update — July 2021

July was paved with learning for the Swarm team. The Swarm 1.0 release was deployed to the mainnet for the first time and close observation on performance, bugs, and stability issues was needed to make sure everything is working as it should.

Thanks to the wonderful community of the Bee node operators who diligently gave their feedback at our Discord channels, the team was able to address the most important issues and is soon rolling out Bee v1.1.0 to the testnet.
