Cardano’s IOHK says “we are very close” in response to critics of Vasil Hard Fork
Tim HarrisonVice President of Community and Ecosystem at IOHK responded to speculation of an impending delay to the Vasil Hard Fork scheduled for late June.
According to rumors circulating the internet, major issues have been detected in the Cardano Vasil Hard Fork, which could delay the release back to August. IOHK just held its mid-month update where it claimed that everything was progressing as planned.
According to the source, Stake Pool Operators (SPOs) need to upgrade to the latest update for the Vasil Hard Fork to be a success, but with only two weeks until the scheduled launch, meeting the deadlines seems more unlikely.
Tim Harrison, on the other hand, stated that the community will be updated on the progress of Vasil HFC on Monday, June 20.
Information previously shared by IOHK
As the community waits for the expected update on Monday, it might be necessary to have feedback on previous updates shared by IOHK regarding the Vasil Hard Fork.
On June 7, IOHK announced in a thread of tweets that it was in the final mile of the Vasil HFC event and that work was going smoothly.
Vasil’s integration program is the most difficult to date from various points of view, since it is a process that requires not only considerable effort, but also close coordination. Main node, multiple components and DB-Sync to 3rd party APIs like Blockfrost need to be upgraded, and therefore many interdependencies.
IOHK also announced a new Vasil node version, a CLI release, and a new developer testnet created to ensure that its ecosystem partners have enough time. It further added that its focus has now shifted to measuring weekly milestones that should determine the next steps.
The Vasil Hard Fork should improve the capabilities of Cardano and its Plutus contract.
