When is the Tezos mainnet expected to switch to Delphi?

Is there anything that node owners should do in anticipation?

About the nodes, it should be fine since this proposal didn't include sapling.


If you upgrade your node to version 7.4 or 8.0~rc1 you won't need to download the new protocol from your peers so the activation will be simpler and this also lets you check before the activation that the protocol compiles.
