Action Required

If you operate a rippled server, then you should upgrade to rippled version 0.90.1 immediately for service continuity.

Impact of Not Upgrading

If you operate a rippled server older than version 0.90.0, your server is amendment blocked. A server that is amendment blocked:

  • Cannot determine the validity of a ledger
  • Cannot submit or process transactions
  • Does not participate in the consensus process
  • Does not vote on future amendments
  • Could rely on potentially invalid data

If you are using rippled version 0.90.0, your server is not amendment blocked but you should upgrade to rippled version 0.90.1 or higher to get important security fixes. rippled version 0.90.0 may stop or restart unexpectedly.

For instructions on updating rippled on supported platforms, see Updating rippled on supported platforms.

For other platforms, please compile version 0.90.1 from source. See the rippled GitHub repo for instructions by platform. For instructions building rippled from source on Ubuntu Linux, see Build and Run rippled on Ubuntu.

Upcoming Features

The previously announced Checks amendment has lost the support of a majority of trusted validators and is not expected to become enabled in the immediate future.
