rippled version 0.70.2

The rippled team has released rippled version 0.70.2, which corrects an emergent behavior that resulted in high transaction costs and fewer transactions in validated ledgers over the past few days. The problematic behavior involved large numbers of transactions being stuck in different rippled instances' open ledgers without being consistently relayed to validators. The large number of "stuck" transactions filled the transaction queue and caused a dramatic increase in the open ledger cost.

There are no new features in the 0.70.2 release.

Action Required

If you operate a rippled server, then you should upgrade to 0.70.2 immediately.

Impact of Not Upgrading

If you operate a rippled server, but do not upgrade to rippled version 0.70.2, then your rippled server could see inconsistent transaction relaying as well as transactions getting stuck in the open ledger without being passed on to validators. In this case, your server may report very high transaction costs and brimming transaction queues.
