Bitcoin Core 0.21.1 release candidate 1 available (with taproot activation)
a more detailed write-up about the taproot activation (to go into the release notes) can be found here: https://github.com/bitcoin-core/bitcoin-devwiki/wiki/0.21.1-Release-Notes-draft
I don't think you can get the number of signaling blocks with a single RPC command. If you want to implement checking yourself, you can use the versionhex in either debug.log or the results of `getblock`. Taproot is using bit 2. See the versionbits FAQ for details about bits: https://bitcoincore.org/en/2016/06/08/version-bits-miners-faq/

@orionwl will the bip9 start_time be a different value in the final release? or is it really set to two days from now?
