Vega Testnet (Fairground) release 0.36.0 is now live

Why is this release great? An intro by @edd

The most exciting feature this release is the additional API information for governance. Previously it was only possible to inspect the yes or no votes, while now the relative weights based on token holdings and other relevant information are included on the proposals endpoints.

The other major feature is a lot of fixes around the behaviour when leaving auctions - in the previous version, this sometimes caused the block time to slow down temporarily, and also sometimes immediately triggered another auction. Both of these have now been addressed - if leaving an auction would trigger another auction, the auction period is now extended.

For a more thorough look at how to get started with Liquidity Provision on testnet, check out the Liquidity Provision section of our docs.

Please see the bottom of this post to see the steps for how you can get started and participate in the Vega Testnet which is now called Fairground :roller_coaster:
