The Cardano users will have to arm themselves with patience before enjoying the newest Cardano Vasil hard fork update.
Cardano, a public blockchain platform established in 2015 by Ethereum co-founder Charles Hoskinson, has delayed the release of its hard fork update to August.
According to Kevin Hammond, Input Output Global (IOG) technical manager, the preparation of the update is postponed for a few weeks. During the monthly call, on July 28th, Hammond explained that the update is currently being tested for issues and any arisen problems are being solved. When commenting on this matter Hammond said:

The team is working very hard to deliver the benefits of Vasil hard fork to the community. The good news is that this week we have just had a new 1.35.2 release that fixes issues that stake pool operators, DApp developers, internal testing and others have identified. The goal is that it will flush out any issues as we go to the Vasil hard fork.
The delayed update sought to provide better scaling possibilities for the public blockchain. The technical team has previously declared that this is the most complex update Cardano has launched.
Core technology programmer at IOG, Javier Franco has noted that the team is focused on launching a fully functioning product and will take as much time as they need to ensure that “things are done right”.
Hammond also believes that this is the right thing to do, reflecting on the delay, he said:
This is software development. Inevitably, some issues can crop up and what we have to do is assess these issues as they come in and determine what impact they could have. We need to make sure that any issues that could affect the node as we go into Vasil are worked out.
It is worth noting that this is not the first time the update has been delayed. Cardano Vasil's update initially was set to be launched in June. However, due to detected technical bugs, the update was delayed to July 29th.
