Flow Roadmap

Cadence upgrade

Last updated: Aug 25, 2023

One of the top priorities for Cadence contributors is to ensure Cadence guarantees future backward compatibility of smart contracts. This is a long-term process that started at the end of 2021, in which Cadence will achieve feature completeness so it doesn't require any maintenance issues in the future.Based on the feedback from the community so far, this milestone was separated into two phases:


Improved developer experience for capability-based access control

Faster & easier composable smart contracts

Eliminating security footguns

Improved resource access control with Entitlements

Current progress

The next major upgrade of Cadence is expected to be released in early 2024, and the completion of this key milestone will ensure a resilient and stable decentralized smart contract platform for future generations. The upgrade path, network testing plan and tooling are still being explored with the community.
