"Cryptographers Are Always Going to Be ‘One Step Ahead’ of Regulators: Monero’s Spagni" www.coindesk.com/spagni-fluffypony-monero-cryptographers-one-step-ahead-regulators Selected part of the article: “Untraceable cryptocurrencies such as monero are here to stay,” Dr. Tom Robinson, co-founder and chief economist at blockchain analytics firm Elliptic, told CoinDesk in an email. “In the short term, it may well be possible to find exploits in these systems and trace transactions to some degree, but these bugs will be fixed.” Over the weekend, monero implemented an upgrade codenamed “Oxygen Orion,” which includes a new ring signatures feature called compact linkable spontaneous anonymous group (CLSAG). That is expected to reduce transaction sizes by 25%, improving transaction verification times by 10% and boost security.

Monero's network upgrade had an issue where nodes that were not running at the time of the upgrade block got stuck on that block and were unable to sync further. Funds are NOT at risk; exchanges, mining pools, and common wallet remote nodes operated normally. However, those with out-of-sync nodes will need to upgrade to version 0.17.1.1 to catch up with the network. The Monero developer team deeply regrets that this issue occurred. Block 2210720 accidentally included 2 old-style MLSAG transactions. These transactions were accepted by nodes running at the time, but they are not accepted by nodes that were not fully synced. These transactions were otherwise valid and are not indicative of supply issues. The situation has been fixed without invalidating these 2 transactions, and all future transactions will use the new and improved CLSAG format. www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/jdp770/cli_v01711_oxygen_orion_released_fixes_block/

Monero 0.17.1 has been released. It is important that users update to some 0.17 version for the mandatory network upgrade on October 16 (blocks have been coming faster than normal). We recommend using 0.17.1 since it includes transaction broadcast improvements. www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/jb0vo9/cli_gui_v01710_oxygen_orion_released/ As a reminder, 0.17 includes the faster, smaller, and cheaper CLSAG ring signatures.
