Parity-Ethereum 2.2.2-beta is an exciting release. Among others, it improves sync performance, peering stability, block propagation, and transaction propagation times. Also, a warp-sync no longer removes existing blocks from the database, but rather reuses locally available information to decrease sync times and reduces required bandwidth.

Before upgrading to 2.2.2, please also verify the validity of your chain specs. Parity Ethereum now denies unknown fields in the specification. To do this, use the chainspec tool:

cargo build --release -p chainspec
./target/release/chainspec /path/to/spec.json

Last but not least, JSONRPC APIs which are not yet accepted as an EIP in the eth, personal, or web3 namespace, are now considere experimental as their final specification might change in future. These APIs have to be manually enabled by explicitly running --jsonrpc-experimental.

Thanks for flying with Parity Ethereum!
