Later today, the Avior release will implement a new upgrade on L2 only. During this release there will be no downtime on L1, but up to 3 hours of downtime L2 during which time deposits will be disabled. Here’s what’s included in this release:
- SIP-182 – Wrappr factory: This SIP creates a new WrapperFactory contract that can deploy new Wrapper contracts to support any ERC20 token. The new Wrapper contract behaves like its predecessor (the ETH Wrappr from SIP-112) and will initially include a WETH wrapper, though more Wrapprs will likely be added in the future.
This release is called Avior, which like all releases is named after a star (in order of visual magnitude). If you’ve got any comments or questions about the release, please come join the conversation in Discord.
