RippleX has announced the release of version 1.7 of the XRP Ledger in a Feb. 24 blog post. The new implementation provides a significant boost to the software’s efficiency. On top of that, it makes the network more secure and decentralized.
The latest version reduces memory usage by a whopping 50 percent because of a slew of improvements that are partially attributed to Ripple CTO David Schwartz. Initially, Schwartz conducted a test of the new release back in December, revealing his findings on Twitter.
Now that that version 1.7 has been released, Schwartz says that the whole ecosystem will benefit:
Ultimately, v1.7 makes better use of available system resources. By boosting efficiency, the whole XRPL ecosystem benefits and can more easily operate the software to build directly on the Ledger.
