Input Output Global, the company behind the Cardano network, has postponed the release date of the Vasil upgrade. The company said it needed to address several issues before deploying this upgrade to ensure everything worked smoothly.

Cardano postpones Vasil upgrade

In the Cardano blog post, the IOG said that the team needed a few days to assess the status of this upgrade. The date for the upgrade was originally set as June 29, but it will now be delayed to a later date until all the processes are streamlined.

“The IOG engineering team is extremely close to finalizing 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 form update proposal to the testnet today to allow more time for testing,” the team said.

The team also mentioned some of its achievements in the days leading up to the upgrade. It managed to achieve around 95% of the Plutus V2 test scripts. However, a few items needed to be assessed to ensure everything worked smoothly.

The blog post also says that since the beginning of June, it had been operating successfully to run an early version of the new node. This node involves diffusing pipelining and solving the Plutus v2 CIPs and many other enhancements. It also noted that the team comprises 35 developers working on 27 projects. These developers worked with their decentralized applications (DApps) to detect issues.

“We are working closely with some of the leading tool/API providers, including Blockfrost, Cardano Serialization library (EMURGO), and Cardano Multiplatform Library (dcSpark). We want to call out the work of Mlabs and Dquadrant in particular for providing great support throughout the process. This developer testnet stage puts us in a good position when it comes to Plutus code compatibility and functionality,” the announcement added.

The team noted that the Vasil hard fork upgrade was a complex program to develop and integrate within the Cardano blockchain. Because of the challenges, the process required work from the developer team.

Cardano adopted smart contracts last year, and since then, it has seen notable adoption from DApps. During the second quarter of 2022, the notable growth of the Cardano network was witnessed, with the blockchain supporting more than 1000 applications from different sectors.
