The IOTA (MIOTA) team has recently released important updates regarding the progress made towards the launch of IOTA 2.0. According to a blog post, the team has successfully released version 0.2.2 of the Pollen testnet. The latest release comes with multiple improvements such as message request management, a new beacon plugin, and a refactored worker pool. 

The IOTA team noted that the process of validating messages and transactions had been prominently improved. They have also created a new API middleware, which lets users issue transactions in a JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) format. IOTA has also introduced a new GUI wallet and a more robust Grafana local dashboard to make Pollen more user friendly. Additionally, the team has improved the message drop policy. This protects the network against malicious nodes.
