This is something that that is very important for both the Ethereum and Ethereum Classic (ETC) communities. The announcement related to ETC Mantis was first announced in 2017. Now, this client was created from scratch with the Scala programming language.
The intention behind Mantis is to have an Ethereum Classic client built from the ground up. The Team Grothendieck has been working on this client. According to the official GitHub page, the release of Mantis has been focused on improving general performance and also introducing full Ethereum network support. The version has already been tested on Windows and macOS before being released.
Additionally, those users that want to give feedback can do it through the Ethereum Classic Forum.
This release offers support for CPU mining, peer discovery, fast sync and many other things such as Modern and Ropsten testnets and private network. Interested users can always check the official GitHub page to know more about the CLI 2.0 Release.
