All mainnet nodes have been updated after functional testing on our testnet servers.
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.
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).
