Per the announcement, RippleX encourages users to upgrade to the new version to enable service continuation and the ability to participate in voting for subsequent amendments like XLS-30.
The latest version adds new features. In addition, version 1.12.0 of Rippled comes with bug fixes and introduces amendments such as AMM, Clawback, and fixReducedOffersV1.
Explaining amendment and new features
According to a blog post on its official website, AMM presents an automated market marker (AMM) to XRPL decentralized exchange. This feature enables users to trade digital assets without a counterparty.
The amended Clawback feature adds an “Allow Clawback” setting which allows an issuer to recover or claw back previously issued tokens. It is important to note that issuers cannot enable this setting if they have already issued tokens.
fixReducedOffersV1 on the other hand reduces the occurrence of order books that have been blocked by reduced offers.
Additionally, Version 1.12.0 of Rippled – the reference server implementation of the XRP Ledger protocol, also comes with bug fixes. Some of the errors fixed include adding a “pre-commit hook” that runs the clang-format linter locally before committing changes.
Also, the ServerHandlerImp was renamed to ServerHandler. Hand-rolled code was replaced with std::from_chars to enable better maintainability. See all fixed bugs Here.
Similarly, the Docs and Build system saw several updates. For example, the update checkout versions were updated to resolve warnings during GitHub jobs. Also, an issue with the Debian package build was fixed. Conan recipe was updated for NuDB.
Upcoming Devnet reset
Meanwhile, XRPL previously announced a reset for its Devnet test network. This reset is scheduled to take place on September 19, 2023. A brief Devnet outage of less than one hour is expected during the time of the reset.
It is important to know that Ripple runs several altnets like Testnet, Devnet, and AMM-Devnet for various reasons. As opposed to the Mainnet, these chains are centralized and its validators are run by a single entity so that they can be reset.
