Three Amendments Expected on 2021-04-08

Two bug-fixing amendments to the XRP Ledger protocol and one amendment that improves robustness of consensus, all introduced in rippled v1.6.0, have gained support from a majority of trusted validators: fix1781, fixAmendmentMajorityCalc, and HardenedValidations. Currently, they are expected to become enabled on 2021-04-08. Any of these amendments that continue to have the continuous support of at least 80% of trusted validators will become enabled on the scheduled date.

Server operators should be sure to upgrade rippled before this date.
