Cardano’s Vasil upgrade has been delayed for several weeks to ensure a smooth transition for end users.
But Input Output Global (IOG) CEO Charles Hoskinson believes things are moving in the right direction, steadily and systematically.
- Briefly dealing with the pushback of the long-awaited upgrade modernizeexplained Cardano’s founder,
“Initially, we planned to have the hard fork with 1.35.0 and a lot of testing, both internal and community, was going on. A collection of errors was found. Three separate bugs that led to three new versions of the software and now we have 1.35.3 which looks like it will be the version that survives the hard fork and gets upgraded to Vasil.”
- Unless new issues arise, Hoskinson said he doesn’t expect further delays. The executive claimed that the latest upgrade was a bit more difficult than expected.
- He also revealed that some of the issues surprised developers because they happened very late in the production pipeline. This resulted in further delays as the team had to develop an alternative route.
- According to the original roadmap, the Vasil hard fork was scheduled for May 2022, which was then pushed back to June 29. Finally, it was postponed to the last week of July.
- But IOG Technical Director Kevin Hammon announced that the team once again fell short of the target citing many problems and bugs.
- Vasil is touted as a “game changer” for the Cardano network that aims to boost speed and scalability while making it attractive for smart contracts and decentralized applications (DApps).
