Recently, a video was circulated depicting Charles Hoskinson, founder, Input Output Global, making a declaration for the clients about the ongoing developments in the Vasil hard fork update. He announced that finally, it is about the time when the upgrade is going through the final testing process and will not be delayed for much longer.
“The good news is that the set of things that could go wrong has gotten so small, and now we’re kind of in the final stages of testing in that respect,” Hoskinson explained on Twitter. “So, unless anything new is discovered, I don’t anticipate that we’ll have any further delays.”
According to some relevant sources, it is quite noteworthy that producers had once again delayed the highly anticipated Vasil hard fork update which was expected to be released by the end of July. This delay was announced for a couple of weeks more. The primary reason given by launchers was that the upgrade requires even more extensive testing before it can be released on the mainnet.
“The problem is that every time something is discovered, you have to fix it. But then you have to verify the fix and go back through the entire testing pipeline,” Hoskinson said. “So you get to a situation where you feature complete. But then you have to test and when you test, you may discover something, and then you have to repair that and then you have to go back through the entire testing pipeline. So, this is what causes release delays.”
In the video, the IOG founder claimed that during the testing of the last node i.e., node 1.35.0, they located three different bugs, making it ADA’s most complicated upgrade till date.
