Some of the major updates include the Advanced API Toolkit and Remote Procedure Calls (RPC and gRPC) operations, Command Line Interface (CLI), and handshake logic. They have all been taken to the new level.
Next week, the Ripple version of this release will be uploaded to XRP Ledger Testnet, which is operated by Xpring Team on Ripple. As a result, developers will be able to verify their applications with trial XRP tokens.
Infrastructure reorganization and plebiscite
Next week there will be one more update for this version of the XRP ledger. The Xpring team will release the update for their XRP Ledger Mainnet servers. Clusters and validators will be affected by this update. Voting on amendments to the Ripple protocol will also be launched according to updates from its servers.
Last but not least, the next version of the software, XRP Ledger v1.6.0, will be released in Beta (unstable). Therefore, the Xpring team will invite developers to the updated XRP Ledger Devnet environment to explore new opportunities for themselves.
