As per a blog post, Cardano has recently released a new Cardano Haskell implementation. The implementation mainly consists of the Cardano Node and the Cardano Explorer Backend with Web API. The team at Cardano has been working on this for over a year and it is meant to ease the launch of the upcoming Shelley and Goguen releases. The upgrade also aims to allow third-party developer teams to build on Cardano and encourage enterprise adoption.
The changes will start with the upgrade scheduled for February 20 – Ouroboros BFT. Till then, Cardano will be working on the current implementation of the network node. The blog post reads:
After the update to Ouroboros BFT, we will be able to migrate the core nodes that create blocks, while Daedalus users will be able to upgrade later, once the compatible wallet backend is available.
The new node adopts a modular architecture, unlike the previous one, which was monolithic. This will make future integrations easier to implement. It will also allow the node to be more readily incorporated into other systems, such as those used by exchanges.
