Status Updates (August, 2021) > August 27, 2021


This week, the team finalized implementing static screens to sign DApp interaction transactions that will integrate with the custom browser protocol to launch Daedalus.

The team continues working on the stake pool ranking feature based on desirability parameter, and have also implemented a new Alonzo countdown screen.

Finally, the team completed the Electron package bump development and started its final QA testing.


This week, the team is updating all the Adrestia components (cardano-wallet, GraphQL, Rosetta API, and cardano-explorer-app) to the final Alonzo node version.

They are working on changes required for smart contracts (collateral, script witnesses, etc.), and are also working on the implementation of voting features into cardano-rosetta, plus a number of fixes and optimizations.


This week, the team continued working on network simulations, resolved some Cardano node issues, and rebased the P2P master branch on top of the Cardano node v.1.28.0. They are now in the process of testing the P2P suite.


This week, the team prepared for the public Alonzo testnet hard fork and updated the public faucet, which will be available for use after the hard fork event. They tested and deployed Cardano node, DB Sync, and SMASH releases. They also finalized work on DB Sync snapshots so that they can be restored from Docker, fixed Electron upgrade issues in Daedalus hardware wallets, and worked on Bitte images in a data center.

Finally, the team integrated the SisgularityNET signer node to work with the ERC20 internal testnet and continued testing the Mantis network.


This week, the team reviewed parameter changes for the mainnet, fixed some bugs, and tagged the latest node to support Alonzo Purple testing activities.

Finally, they worked on the cost model documentation, inspected let-floater issues, and merged some cross-compilation PRs.


This week, the Plutus team continued with their built-in updates and updated the reference documentation for cost model parameters.

The Marlowe team worked on NAM contracts to ensure that they match the ACTUS JAVA implementation, and on ANN contract refactorings. They also addressed the lack of consistency issue in different environments, and added Marlowe Run to Bitte deployment, also performing custom serialization to independent Marlowe semantics.

Additionally, they worked on some analytics-related tasks, including adding in Google Analytics tracking to the dashboard and Playground client, and segment analytics tracking. They also resolved a problem with semantic payments, worked on updating examples for the Marlowe prototype, and updated supporting documentation.

Finally, they updated Marlowe examples and their metadata to address design reviews, and redesigned Marlowe Run timeout cards so that they show missed actions.
