Status Updates (November, 2020) > November 6, 2020


Last week, the team released Daedalus mainnet version 2.4.1. Following the community’s feedback, this release brings fresh improvements to the delegation user experience. Daedalus now includes a ranking for all pools. Any pools that have not yet minted any blocks or have a short history of block production now have potential rewards estimated at zero and are ranked equally.

The team is also finalizing QA checks for the upcoming Daedalus Flight release, which will include support for Trezor model T hardware wallets.


Last week, the Adrestia team released a new version of the wallet that includes performance improvements and some minor bug fixes. The team is now focused on making the wallet API compatible with openAPI3.0, achieving better database management for delisted or blocked stake pools, and continued development of multisig.

Finally, the team confirmed that the transaction scheduler is nearing completion, and are now working on the upcoming releases of Graphql 3.0.0 and Cardano-Rosetta 1.0.0.


Last week, the team continued integrating the connection manager, worked out the development building procedure on Windows, and also found and resolved some occuring issues in cardano-node, iohk-monitoring, and ouroboros-network. They have implemented cardano-ping applications, which are useful for DevOps activities.

The team continued developing cardano-CLI API with the implementation of typed wrappers, which exposes a consistent view for the typed interface of ouroboros-consensus.

Finally, they continued cooperating with the benchmarking team and the researchers from the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB) and Leuven University regarding the node connectivity policies and Delta-Q framework.


Last week, the team continued working on the integration of new eras with consensus. Node integration is in progress now. They continued working on the technical report about the consensus layer, and made progress on the Shelley hard fork combinator tests.

The benchmarking team has performed and analysed experiments for networks featuring a large number of block producing nodes. They have migrated their deployment structure and implemented additional metrics. Finally, the RTView tool has undergone some improvements in terms of internal technical stack and the overall user interface (UI).


Last week, the Plutus team started work on some Nix code and structure refactoring. They also updated some paths in validation benchmarks and made changes to the pubKeyHash function in the on-chain code.

The Marlowe team completed some refactoring changes to improve consistency in the area of standard types. They also made some further updates to the colour scheme within the playground and fixed some spacing issues in Blockly for pay and deposit contracts. A significant update was made to the Marlowe tutorials. Finally, the technical writing team published new Marlowe topics on the Cardano Docs website.
