Going by the report, the latest version fixes minor bugs and refurbishes the user interface for a seamless experience.

The upgrade introduces a splash screen and gives users an option to add another configuration to the Cardano node runtime system. Although this option is only available to computers with less than 16GB ram, it reduces memory usage and sends prompts for system requirements.

The new Daedalus wallet also fixes issues such as blockchain verification progress by ensuring that syncing is correctly displayed for an enhanced user experience.

In the announcement, the software firm led by Charles Hoskinson sternly warned users that Daedalus is a full-node wallet and is only available to desktop users. The firm says any mobile version of Daedalus is a scam designed by con artists to steal users’ funds.

IOG tweeted, “OUT NOW: Daedalus 4.8.0 Mainnet This Daedalus release integrates the latest version of cardano-wallet, which supports Cardano node v1.33.0 & brings a significant performance improvement.

IOG continued, “For computers with less than 16GB of RAM, a new splash screen is displayed, with an option to enable the Cardano node runtime system (RTS), which can reduce memory usage, and a reminder about the recommended hardware requirements for Daedalus.

“Existing users will get a prompt to update via the Daedalus newsfeed. If you are new to Daedalus remember – download it ONLY from the official site:
