Introducing XRP Ledger version 1.8.4

Version 1.8.4 of rippled, the reference server implementation of the XRP Ledger protocol, is now available. This release improves syncing performance including a new "fast load" setting, adds countermeasures for a security vulnerability in LZ4, and adjusts some tuning parameters to improve resource usage. Notably, this release limits pathfinding API methods to fewer and shorter paths because the previous pathfinding settings were causing excessive memory usage as a result of the overall size of the XRP Ledger Mainnet data.

This release supersedes version 1.8.3, and fixes an issue that was discovered during the release cycle.
