Input Output, the developer of the Cardano blockchain, is in the final stretches of preparations for its upcoming hard fork combinator (HFC) event called "Vasil."

The upgrade is expected to substantially improve the Plutus smart contract platform.

According to the most recent update, the team of developers has successfully delivered a new node release for the Vasil upgrade with the first release of its command-line interface.  

The much-anticipated hard fork event, which was named after the late Bulgarian mathematician Vasil Dabov, is scheduled to take place on June 29.
