The following information has been grabbed from the Mina Discord Channel, it is a great place to find out more about the technical aspects of Mina Protocol.
Mina’s ecosystem partner, O(1) Labs, is continuously working on improvements to the core protocol and have just released a new alpha release 1.3.0alpha3 that is ready to test on Devnet! :Mina_Rotating_filled_M:
NOTE: We recommend users wait for a future 1.3.0beta release before running this version on Mainnet.
The 1.3.0 releases will expect users to switch to MINA_ environment variables in your .mina-env and in docker. Until 2.0.0, the old CODA_ variables will still be supported but deprecated and will print a new warning, so we recommend taking this opportunity to make the switch.
This release also supports the new 1.3.X archive node schema with more efficient queries for account balances over time. Many changes were included for Rosetta support as well as bug fixes and performance improvements for block verification.
