fix1543, fix1571 & fix1623 Amendments Open for Voting

Previously introduced in rippled version 1.0.0, the fix1543, fix1571 and fix1623 amendments are now open for voting.

  • The fix1543 amendment enforces reserved flag ranges on escrow, payment channel, and ticket transactions.
  • The fix1571 amendment changes the EscrowCreate transaction to require the Condition or FinishAfter field (or both) and also fixes a flaw that incorrectly prevents time-based Escrows from being finished in some circumstances.
  • The fix1623 amendment adds delivered amount metadata to CheckCash transactions that cash a check for a flexible amount.

Action Required

If you operate a rippled server, then you should upgrade to version 1.0.0 by Tuesday, 2018-06-19 00:00:00 UTC, for service continuity.

Impact of Not Upgrading

If you operate a rippled server but don’t upgrade to version 1.0.0 by Tuesday, 2018-06-19, when the fix1543, fix1571 and fix1623 amendments are expected to become enabled on the network, then your server will become amendment blocked, meaning that your server:

  • Cannot determine the validity of a ledger
  • Cannot submit or process transactions
  • Does not participate in the consensus process
  • Does not vote on future amendments
  • Could rely on potentially invalid data

If the fix1543, fix1571 and fix1623 amendments do not become enabled, then your server will not become amendment blocked and should continue to operate.
