Launching V2 of the Storage and Distribution SystemThis will include introducing distinct roles for data storage and distribution, as well as a storage system with redundancy and only partial replication of media on nodes, alongside other modifications outlined in the specification.
Content Directory EnhancementsWithin this release, improvements to the content directory system will focus on facilitating some planned community initiatives, cleaning up technical debt, and offering integration with the new storage system.
