welp i am 17.1 and getting warning: unknown block versions being mined.. and i not mining Sad
That's unrelated to whether you are mining or not.

I believe that warning is being caused by miners using asicboost which modifies the version number.
That is the case.

This is now the majority of the Bitcoin mining network.

Getting close to half the blocks generated have asicboost version numbers, so that implies a large % of the network is now asicboost enabled - since those miners produce both types of blocks.

Bitmain S9s have had this option in the chips for over 2.5 years and almost anyone using one has enabled it in the past few months due to Bitmain releasing new firmware to support it.
Almost any new mining hardware released will include some form of asicboost.

You guys are doing this on your own volition as there is no official organization for BTC?

There's a handful of people (3 or 4 I think) that have merging rights to add or remove from Bitcoin's code. Then there's dozens of contributors who offer changes. The 3-4 that push the merge button only do so when they get the agreement of at least another 3 or 4 code contributors who are regulars on the project. If it's something totally trivial, like changing documentation, the mergers might not bother wasting time getting agreement first, though.

It's pretty informal overall (and typical for an open source project in that regard).

Bitcoin constantly evolved, so there's no exact way to determine if Bitcoin application is still on development, alpha, beta or released.

Also, it's just arbitrary number and Bitcoin Core is extensively tested before release so you shouldn't worry about using unstable/buggy wallet.

What do you mean by "official" ?

BTC governance is decentralized with 3 types of constituents: devs, miners and users.
None of these groups can do things on their own without regards to what the other two are doing.

I have 17.1 and i'm getting warning: unknown block versions being mined.. But i'm not mining

like we used to get pre segwit..

it's likely because of miners using ASIC boost. the way that warning is triggered is currently up for debate (there's also a proposal to standardise ASIC boost, which would solve the problem another way)

no need to worry
