rippled Version 0.60.1

The rippled team has released rippled version 0.60.1, which corrects a technical flaw that resulted from using 32-bit space identifiers instead of the protocol-defined 16-bit values for Escrow and Payment Channel ledger entries. rippled version 0.60.1 also fixes a problem where the WebSocket timeout timer would not be cancelled when certain errors occurred during subscription streams. Ripple requires upgrading to rippled version 0.60.1 immediately.

Ripple expects the Escrow and PayChan amendments to be enabled via amendment vote around 11:26 PM PDT on Thursday, 2017-03-30. There are no new features in the 0.60.1 release.

Action Required

If you operate a rippled server, then you must upgrade to 0.60.1 immediately.

Impact of Not Upgrading

  • If you operate a rippled server, but do not upgrade to rippled version 0.60.1, then your rippled server will lose sync when processing Payment Channel or Escrow transactions. The Escrow and PayChan amendments are expected to be enabled via amendment vote around 11:26 PM PDT on Thursday, 2017-03-30.
  • If you operate a rippled server, but do not upgrade to version 0.60.1, then client websocket connections to your rippled server may continue to disconnect during subscription streams.
