We've tagged a pre-release. Upgrade at your own risk, preferrably non-critical systems first.

Great, thanks!

I'm not aware of anyone else still testing, nor have I received any negative reports.

I'll start preparing the mainnet release now. Preliminary hardfork date is 2017-11-27 15:00 UTC, unless anyone comes up with a convincing argument that this is a bad choice.
Just a note here, as we've discussed in Telegram, the hardfork date/time will be 2017-11-27 14:40 UTC.

We must give 3rd parties (exchanges and other businesses) sufficient time to get notified and upgrade.
2 weeks should be sufficient enough time for anyone to upgrade once we've gained their attention (likely the hardest bit for poloniex, haha!)
I'm just impatient :P

Why 1+ month away for the hardfork?  Continued testing or simply want to get the witnesses on board?

Thanks for the approvals, guys.

Any know if this information was sent to Bittrex?  Could be why they are going to delist BTS on the 13th?

According to @Stan bittrex has suffered from the problem. I don't know if that's the reason for the delisting though.

Exchanges will have be notified when the mainnet release is available. It might be a good idea to highlight that p2p fix in the release notes.

This is great news. A hardfork around end of November would be timeframe of choice as well. thank you for all this work. Especially the p2p fix is a great last minute fix. Recently a steem network interruption on my node automatically caused to reconnect when network state returned normal. Bitshares behind the same router didn't and had to auto-switch to another failover node. Nonetheless the revival of black-swanned currencies will certainly help the platform further. Thank you, thank you. I approve the hardfork for sure!

A couple of days ago, @dannotestein alerted us to an issue in the P2P code that may have been causing problems to exchanges. It seems that nodes would get stuck for hours, conveying the impression that the blockchain was dead.
@xeroc backported a fix from STEEM into our codebase. The fix is currently being tested in testnet and will become part of the next master release.

The following witnesses (and others) have contributed to testing so far:

Code review (Github)
* @abit
* Alfredo aka @oxarbitrage
* @xeroc
* Several others (@wackou, @Thom, @Taconator, …)

Approvals so far
* @xeroc
* @Fox
* iPerky aka @iHashFury
* @Bhuz
* @sahkan
* @roelandp
* @abit
* @wackou
* @Thom aka verbaltech2
* @ElMato

I'm still hoping for an ACK from @Thom , then I'll prepare the mainnet hardfork.

I'd suggest a hardfork date around end of November, that'd give everyone about 6 weeks to upgrade, which is plenty IMO.

Edit: added approvals from roelandp, abit, wackou, thom and elmato
