🆕 Major zkBob Releases

ZkBob is made up of multiple components. In the latest release on January 2nd, updates were made to the relayer (v2.2.0), UI (v1.0.0), and JS library (v1.2.1). These updates included an integration with Li.Fi, support for ID functionality, and faster sync. For more information on the upgrades and how they improve zkBob functionality, see the release notes at

New releases are occurring on a regular basis as we continue to make improvements to the application. The next release is scheduled on Monday, January 16th at 12:00 UTC. The upgrade can take several hours, though it is typically much faster. During that time zkBob will not be available. We will send out a reminder before the update.
