A new version of Cardano (ADA), which is set to correct tech issues such as performance and network improvements, as well as security enhancements, is expected to be released this week.

ADA’s tech developers will soon finish writing their codes for Cardano 1.2, which includes the activation of V1 APIs and Paper wallets, Charles Hoskinson, founder and CEO of Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK), the company developing Cardano, said in a live Twitter announcement last week. The Cardano 1.2 release, which was initially expected in April, will follow several tests carried out by testing companies Allied Testing and Kubik.

This is quite a long release pipeline, a lot of things still need to be automated and we need to make some improvements in that pipeline, Hoskinson said. “Our hope is every time we do it, the release pipeline from when we stopped active development to when we actually release the update to end users will shrink over time and will get better and better, every time we do a release we do a post-mortem on it and try to find ways to improve and automate that process.

Hoskinson, who is also the co-founder of Ethereum (ETH), added that users can expect more updates in the coming months. The upgrades will be related to RENA, Cardanos Treasury, and Ouroboros Hydra, which are the main components of the system.
