Cardano’s Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of IOHK did an AMA [Ask Me Anything] on YouTube on November 17. He spoke about the upcoming 1.4 and Shelly update for Cardano 1.4.
“The update 1.4 for Cardano is coming along well and we’re in regression testing right now. We’ve had a few regressions but nothing significant is found yet and it’s a lot of new code. There has been a huge amount of refactoring on the core, and we’ve found new database solutions, so we’ve gone from lots of storage to little storage and become much more efficient.”
He continued saying that the biggest development that has happened is in the wallet backend. Moreover, Hoskinson confirmed that it was the first piece of formally verified code that they’ve had.
Hoskinson further confirmed that the development cut-off was a few weeks ago and that they were working their way through the QA which is being led Alan McNicholas, the head of the QA department at IOHK and his team.
“The update won’t be taking much longer, I’d say a few more weeks and hopefully we should have the update 1.4 release by end of November or early December. And it’s the most significant update we’ve ever made to the Cardno ecosystem.”
The Cardano 1.4 update is the foundation for the new wallet’s backend. Hoskinson had previously explained that the current Cardano SL code was never meant to be something that is long-term. He also mentioned that the existing code will be heavily changed and refactored to drop dependencies and make architectural changes.
Charles Hoskinson added:
“After the 1.4 update, every update is going to be Shelley related so the first major update will be basically some new code for Ouroboros BFT and that’ll get us all aligned up so that we can start moving towards some variant of Ouroboros.”
He said that there were five different teams that were using the test implementations of Ouroboros in different capacities and that they’ve published a paper on e-print for Ouroboros.
