The stable release of Lotus v1.17.2 is now out 🎉 This feature release introduces the sector number management APIs in Lotus that enables all the Sealing-as-a-Service and Lotus interactions needed to function. Deep dive into the new APIs here: #9079 (comment). This version also raises the default propagation delay to 10 seconds for storage providers, so from now on you will see "baseDeltaSeconds": 10 as default in your lotus-miner logs.

The release has numerous other enhancements and bug fixes, so make sure to check out the full release notes here.

⚠️ Please note that Lotus v1.17.2 will require a Go-version of v1.18.1 or higher!
