Status Updates (April, 2021) > April 1, 2021


This week, the team released Daedalus version 4.0.3. This new version adds multi-asset support, which allows users to send and receive native tokens on Cardano.

This release also includes the countdown to fully decentralized block production, support for Trezor devices with passphrases, the ability to view wallet public keys, and an improved CSV export process, along with some minor improvements and issue resolutions.


This week, the Adrestia team released cardano-graphql version 4.0.0 and also worked on several other tasks. Specifically, they worked on enabling multi-asset wallet migration, a new feature to return derivation paths of addresses in the list endpoint, metadata hashing before signing with the wallet key to support hardware wallets for Catalyst, test suite improvements to simplify and enhance QA, and also continued developing multisig features.


This week, the team assisted with the node version 1.26.1 release by exploring and resolving different issues. They also worked on the implementation of the local root peer feature within the connection manager, made progress on connection manager simulations, and added the MonadFix instance to IOSim.


This week, the team prepared for the Project Catalyst Fund4, performed troubleshooting and deployments within EVM/KEVM Mantis devnets, and tested and deployed the node version 1.26.1. Finally, they made improvements to the metadata server, and fixed some tls issues in the Daedalus development environment.


This week, the team finalized the integration of Alonzo rules with the ledger, investigated further rules integration with Plutus and consensus, and fixed some minUTxO value properties in Alonzo. The team prepared the first draft of the TxInfo documentation (which explains how ledger transactions are translated into the type formats that can be used by Plutus scripts), and also worked on the transaction-related ledger code.

The team continued working on the benchmarking of incremental computations in terms of performance properties, and introduced the status update on the periodic SPO call. They also completed the log forwarding protocol design and implementation, combined two new forwarding protocols (for traces and metrics) to provide a full forwarding demo application, continued node integration with the trace-forwarder, and finally, reviewed the documentation for the logging API design.


This week, the Plutus team continued working with Quviq on contract testing, and also updated the cost model benchmarking.

The Marlowe team worked on the implementation of running contracts in the Marlowe Dashboard client. Additionally, they updated the Marlowe market contract templates and worked on new logo designs.
