The Byron reboot proceeds successfully
In general Hoskinson emphasized that IOHK is about to connect all new components and implement them in the mainnet.So for those who are not aware. The network stack that we use in Byron Reboot is actualy the same network stack that we intend to use on Shelley. So we are actulay testing Shelley network infrastructure live on mainnet. And there’s other things like the wallet backend design.
In addition, progress of 30 to 50 percent in synchronization times has been achieved and some upcoming Windows problems have already been fixed, which are more common in the “first generation of the software, because IOHK is developed on the basis of Linux. If everything goes according to plan and there are no problems with the new Daedalus Flight candidate, the Daedalus mainnet wallet will be updated with the new features next week.
This will allow IOHK to present “very soon” a working Shelley node software, based on Haskell, that can communicate with the wallet backend. The software will first be made available to the most “loyal” node operators, including a command line (CLI) for a kind of “alpha” test, before the release in a test network (beta test).In this beta test network, participants will be able to synchronize their previous Shelley Incentivized Testnet (ITN) balances as well as the one from the mainnet. However, it will not be a new Incentivized Testnet as it will not run for very long time. If no errors occur during the test phase, Shelley’s launch on the mainnet will be imminent, Hoskinson said.
