Input-Output Global, the software company behind Cardano development, has recently published a blog post in which they revealed having a few outstanding items to run before the final release of Cardano upgrade Vasil to ensure everything is working as expected.
The previous deadline for the mainnet hard fork for the Cardano upgrade was expected to be June 29. Head of delivery and products, Nigel Hemsley said the team would need a few more days to re-evaluate the latest status and ensure everything is on the right track, or as he puts it:
“The IOG engineering team is extremely close to finalising the core work, with just seven bugs still outstanding to complete the hard fork work, with none currently ranked as ‘severe’. After some consideration, we have agreed NOT to send the hard fork update proposal to the testnet today to allow more time for testing.”
While responding to the news, Tim Harrison, the Vice President of the community and ecosystem, explained in a tweet that while everything was being developed as planned, there are still a few factors to be considered before the hard fork combinator event actually takes place.
IOG and the Cardano Foundation agreed on a new date for hard forking the testnet at the end of June. Once completed, the expected timeline for the Cardano upgrade to hit the mainnet would be in the last week of July. It’s worth mentioning the decision was announced after rumours about a potential delay in the upgrade started floating.
The Vasil hard fork enhances scaling by pipelining, which will improve the diffusion of blocks. This Cardano upgrade falls into the Basho scaling era of Cardano development. Charles Hoskinson, Cardano’s founder, had stated earlier that Vasil is going to be a “major, major, major, major” event for the entire Cardano ecosystem!
