In a recent blog post, the team highlights the key additions and enhancements in Version 1.12.0 of rippled, which serves as the reference server implementation of the XRP Ledger protocol. This release introduces several new features, addresses known issues, and introduces three new amendments: AMM, Clawback, and fixReducedOffersV1.
These three amendments are now open for voting via the XRP Ledger’s amendment process, which allows for protocol changes following two weeks of garnering more than 80% validator support.
Breaking down the three amendments:
AMM brings the DeFi automated market maker (AMM) protocol to the XRP Ledger’s decentralized exchange, enabling users to trade assets without requiring a counterparty.
The clawback amendment introduces the “Allow Clawback” feature, allowing issuers to recover tokens they’ve previously issued.
“fixReducedOffersV1” addresses the issue of order books getting blocked by reduced offers.
In addition to these exciting updates, the latest release also includes bug fixes and performance enhancements. Notably, the Docs and Build System have undergone significant updates, including the integration of the latest dependencies from Conan Center and updates to checkout versions to resolve warnings during GitHub jobs, among other improvements.
What’s on the Horizon?
As per the XRPL official blog, a devnet reset is scheduled for Tuesday, September 19, 2023. The devnet serves as a testing ground for prereleased code versions with new amendments enabled, allowing diverse stakeholders to test and explore new features.
During this reset, which is managed by RippleX, a brief devnet outage of less than an hour is anticipated. It’s worth noting that Ripple operates several alternative networks (altnets) for various purposes, such as testnet, devnet, and AMM-devnet. Unlike the mainnet, these chains are centralized, with validators under the control of a single entity and are subject to periodic resets.
