Cardano developers reach significant milestone as Vasil update testing enters final phase

Excellent news is coming from the Cardano camp. After yet another postponement of the Vasil hard fork, the developers have finally decided on the node that will be used for its launch.

Vasil with the selected node

According to a publication that appeared on Github on Thursday, August 11, Cardano developers have made a very important decision for the future of their network. According to it, for the purpose of running the Vasil hard fork, it was decided to use node version 1.35.3.

“Node 1.35.3 fixes several important issues with previous versions of the node and provides several CLI improvements. The node provides the full capabilities of the Vasil era,” the document reads.

Despite the final decision, we learn that the chosen version of the node is not without flaws. However, representatives of the network assure that none of them should affect the launch of the hard fork. They also informed that the problems present in version 1.35.3, can be addressed later and easily eliminated, through minor updates.

The decision to run Vasil on node version 1.35.3 was signed by the technical head, quality assurance engineer, operations team and release manager.

Quality-driven delays

The CEO of Input Output Global (IOG), Charles Hoskinson, through recordings posted on Twitter, repeatedly reported on the problems that developers encountered when trying to implement Vasil. Thus, testing version 1.35.0 of the node resulted in three bugs being found. As a result, three independent versions of the software were developed. Hoskinson had already favored version 1.35.3, and the decision published on Thursday was a confirmation of the thesis he had put forward.

It is not clear whether Cardano is waiting for one more testnet launch to verify that version 1.35.3 is running fully smoothly. However, listening to Hoskinson’s statements, one can become convinced that it will. He has repeatedly indicated that he is primarily concerned with building a high-quality network. The roadmap deadline, as a rule, was a secondary aspect for him.

Vasil gives Cardano higher competitiveness

With the implementation of the Vasil hard fork, Cardano could gain significantly in the eyes of developers. The upgrade is expected to increase network scalability and smart contract functionality. This is expected to allow it to take on the workloads seen from competitors.

After Vasil was pushed back twice, developers decided not to set a new date for it. According to the latest reports, however, the update is expected to take place in the coming weeks.
