rippled version 0.70.1

UPDATE 7-12-2017: This announcement now contains corrected SHA-256 values for the RPM and source RPM.

The rippled team has released rippled version 0.70.1, which corrects a technical flaw in the newly refactored consensus code that could, in rare cases, cause a node to get stuck in consensus due to stale votes from a peer. Ripple requires upgrading to rippled version 0.70.1 immediately.

There are no new features in the 0.70.1 release.

Action Required

If you operate a rippled server, then you should upgrade to 0.70.1 immediately.

Impact of Not Upgrading

  • If you operate a rippled validator server, but do not upgrade to rippled version 0.70.1, then your rippled validator server could experience increased loss of synchronization with the network.

The SHA-256 for the RPM is: 23c8ec08d1ca8c8ce6c0602617c7e41b7f2fd249a1417a79a286a3faa5be08eb

The SHA-256 for the source RPM is: 3522546989024e783cfa933218a28ee878dcc3f334749e7456cb04a9cd07d8fc

For other platforms, please compile version 0.70.1 from source.
