Update 1.35.3 (Testnet/Mainnet)

Some developers revealed a bug in node version 1.35.2 leading to the replacement of testnet by 2 new seperate testnets: preview and pre-production.

Our environment will be tested on pre-production testnet from now on.

We will upgrade our mainnet nodes if no issues arise on our pre-production environment after a couple of days.

Update 1.35.0 (Testnet)

IOG team has tagged and released node 1.35.0 which could be the final candidate for the mainnet Vasil release. As usual this will be installed on our testnet servers. Once approved by IOG these will be ported to our mainnet nodes.

The Vasil upgrade – named in honor of long standing community member, Vasil St Dabov – brings significant performance and capability upgrades to Cardano. The release of this new node is an important milestone on the road to this upgrade.

Update 1.34.1 (testnet)

Cardano-node version 1.34.0 was skipped due to some minor issues as indicated by IOG. 1.34.1 is installed on our testnet servers. If during test period no issues are found we will port it to our production nodes.

Update 1.29.0 (testnet – Alonzo hardfork)

We’ve updated our testnet nodes to 1.29.0. This update is needed for the upcoming Alonzo hardfork which will activate the long awaited smart contract capabilities.
As always, our testservers on testnet lead the way before porting to mainnet. This give us plenty of time to prepare the upgrade when IO sends out their approval to start upgrading mainnet.

Update 1.27.0 (testnet)

Cardano-node version 1.27.0 is installed on our testnet servers. If during test period no issues are found we will port it to our production nodes.

Version 1.27.0 includes many fundamental changes that are needed to prepare for forthcoming feature releases (notably Plutus scripts in the Alonzo era).
