IOG announces release of Cardano node 1.35.0
The Input Output Global (IOG) team, developers behind the Cardano network, announced the release of node 1.35.0. The team confirmed that this is the final candidate for the mainnet Vasil release.
The release of the new node is considered an important milestone in the Cardano ecosystem. IOG announced that the code is complete on all the core Cardano software. The Plutus v2 code (including new CIPs which significantly improve smart contract performance) has been tested successfully and delivered.
Developers are now preparing for the Cardano testnet release and the new node is ready for the community to deploy onto the testnet. The developer community will give testnet SPOs time, as soon as 75% of block-producing SPOs on the testnet have upgraded.
The upgrade is considered a complex one and IOG assured that the development team is following the most rigorous process. The prime concern is to ensure the safety and security of the Cardano ecosystem and partners.
The Vasil hard fork was slated for launch in late June 2022 and then postponed.
