The developers of the EOS announced the release of the new EOSIO V1.1.0 protocol software.

The new release is designed to lay the future scaling foundation of the blockchain platform infrastructure development.

This release targets usability of the software for developers, laying a foundation for more scalable application development and support for an infrastructure team building on the EOSIO blockchain.

In particular, the release includes an optional MongoDB plug-in for EOSIO nodes, which makes it possible to archive blockchain data into the MongoDB database and perform highly scalable and convenient queries of this data.

Two other important updates include overload protection and the ability to quickly restore databases, as well as accelerated synchronization by avoiding attempts to transfer transactions from synchronized nodes.

Detailed documentation of the new release is available on GitHub.
