Parity Technologies, one of the largest provider of ethereum protocol software, announced on January 26 the release of Parity 1.9 or Velocity wallet.

Parity has upgraded its underlying database RocksDB, making it more stable and It now works sufficiently fast that even users with slower, older hard-disks are able to synchronise the chain, the company said. Warp-sync performance has been also improved with typical sync times over public wifi to be around an hour.

The company upgraded the devp2p protocol to use Snappy compression, which now means users’ Parity node uses approximately 50% less network traffic. Parity also improved database’s reliability with corruption issues now being automatically detected and, where possible, repaired, the company said.

The performance and stability of Aura (“Proof-of-Authority”) networks has also been updated and several protocol upgrades enabling reliability and features have been introduced on to the Kovan test network, which now has Byzantium-features enabled from block 5.067.000.

Parity continues to support several chains aside from the Ethereum Foundation’s chain: The recent “Monetary Policy Rounding Specification” protocol upgrade for Ethereum Classic is supported. Morden Classic now supports ECIP-1017 and Expanse hard-forked to Byzantium at block 800.000. Parity now also supports the Ellaism chain.
