I should have mentioned this a couple of days ago, but I am happy to
announce that the Public Test Grid has been updated to 1.12.0. There
were a couple of minor bugs that I discovered in the process, but
overall the process was smooth.

Now that multiple introducers are supported, if anyone wants to host an
introducer, just add it to
Hopefully if we get a couple more introducers we can reach 100% uptime
for the grid.

Thanks again to hard work from the development team.
