Input-Effective Global (IOG) says it will postpone Vasil Hard Fork Improvement Proposal because it still has to solve seven incredible mistakes. While acknowledging that the news may be disappointing to some, the IOG says:
More time is needed
Vadil Hard Fork recently announced that it had “agreed” to delay the delivery of the Vasil Hard Fork Improvement Protocol, a major input-output group working to facilitate Cardano test net upgrades. The team hinted at seven amazing bugs, none of which were classified as serious, that they needed to be delayed.
According to a June 20 blog post, the decision to postpone the hard fork follows a call for a review by the core team over the weekend. Noting that the team was able to pass 95% of the Plutus V2 test scripts, the post said that the main team still had to do a few amazing things to make sure everything was working as expected. The article added:
We decided we needed a few more days for this. This will set us back on the target date set for June 29, which we met earlier with the Mainnet Hard Fork.
Meanwhile, in a blog post, the IOG team described its work on Vasil Hard Fork as “the most complex development and integration program” that needs to be coordinated around the ecosystem.
Network upgrade pushed back
According to the blog post, the final decision to make Cardano Test strong will be made in consultation with “members of the SPO and DApp Development Community”.
Today, the IOG and the Cardano Foundation have agreed on a new target date to strengthen test at the end of June. Once completed, we authorize exchanges and SPOs for four weeks to perform any required integration and testing. This is only reasonable and should not be rushed. The current estimate is for a Cardano mainnet hard fork that will take place in the last week of July.
The IOG said the decision was made to ensure that the agreement was properly implemented, although he acknowledged that some people were saddened by the news. Earlier, according to Bitcoin.com News, Cardano’s supporters helped Hard Fork break the $ 1 mark by the end of June. However, since the announcement, the token has gone from $ 0.51 to $ 0.46.
In the meantime, the IOG team warns that “no time limit in software development can be perfect.” If more time is still needed, the developers fully agree to this, the main team explained.
