New updates for XRP Ledger development have been shared by Paul Anderson, Ripple's Senior Product Manager (SPM). A few of the new amazing features will be enjoyed by coders and users very soon.

New Releases, New Features

As per a post by its SPM, new packages for XRP Ledger v1.5.0 have been made available since last week. In these packages, the logic of the intranetwork interaction has been reconsidered.

Some of the most important upgrades include the advanced API toolkit and Remote Procedure Calls (RPC and gRPC) operations, the command line interface (CLI), and the protocol handshaking logic. All have been brought up to the new level.

Next week, Ripple's version of this release will be uploaded to the XRP Ledger Testnet, which is operated by Xpring Team at Ripple. As a result, developers will be able to check their applications out with test XRP coins.

Infrastructure Reorganization and Plebiscite

One more update for this version of the XRP Ledger will occur next week. The Xpring Team will launch the update of its XRP Ledger Mainnet servers. Clusters and validators will be affected by this update. Voting on Ripple's protocol amendments will also be launched in line with their server updates.
