Introducing XRP Ledger (rippled) version 1.1.2
Ripple is proud to announce the release of XRP Ledger (
rippled) version 1.1.2.
The XRP Ledger version 1.1.2 release includes a fix for a technical issue in the consensus "preferred ledger by branch" code, which could cause a validator to fail to settle on a single preferred branch of unconfirmed ledger history. While this is not entirely unexpected and the code is designed to handle it, this issue exposed a corner case where the stringent safety guarantees of the consensus algorithm, as outlined in the recent Analysis of the XRP Ledger Consensus Protocol paper, make it difficult for the entire network to efficiently recover from this condition.
