GRANDPA Equivocation and sysinfo Process Collection Results In Slashing on Kusama Network: a Post-Mortem.
Multiple bugs in code resulted in nodes dropping out from Kusama network and losing the database that stores which blocks they validated. Consequently, the same nodes double-signed those blocks on restart. The slashes caused by this issue have been reverted via Kusama Council motions.
Transferability and Redenomination Public Notice
Token transferability will be enabled today, exactly at block number 1,205,128. This will occur at approximately 16:40 UTC, though it is impossible to exactly calculate this time. This will not change the denomination of DOT (old) which still represents 10**12 Planck.
Introducing Rococo: Polkadot’s Parachain Testnet
We reached a significant step towards implementing parachain functionality on Polkadot – we launched a new testnet specifically designed for parachains and their related technologies, dubbed Rococo. The Rococo testnet integrates Polkadot with Cumulus and HRMP.

Trusted Execution Environments and the Polkadot Ecosystem
The use of Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs) in combination with the Substrate blockchain modular framework is providing new solutions to enable real-use applications on the next generation of the web.
