Görli/Prater Merge Announcement
Bellatrix, the Prater upgrade readying it for The Merge will happen at
epoch 112260, expected at 12:24 PM UTC on August 4, 2022. After
Bellatrix is activated, the Goerli/Prater merge will happen when Goerli
hits a total difficulty of 10790000, expected between August 6-12, 2022.
Post-merge, Goerli's validator set will remain open for individual
stakers to run testnets validators. Stakers who wish to start a
Goerli/Prater validator can do so at the Prater Launchpad. The combined
Goerli/Prater network will retain the Goerli name post-merge.

Prater will run through the Bellatrix upgrade on August 4th, and merge with Goerli between August 6-12th: if you run a node or validator, this is your last chance to go through the process before mainnet 🚨https://t.co/JAz5AJe12B
Geth Nausicaa v1.10.21 release
Geth v1.10.21 is a maintenance release, adding built-in configuration
for the merge fork on the Goerli testnet and the mergeNetsplitBlock for
the Sepolia testnet.
Specifically, this release
defines a terminal total difficulty for Goerli as 10_790_000 and
defines the mergeNetsplitBlock as 1735371 for Sepolia.
Geth v1.10.21 was just released. This release configures the merge TTD on the Goerli testnet and fixes a few regressions. #golang #Ethereum https://t.co/9Ge7VNsO3d— Go Ethereum (@go_ethereum) July 27, 2022
Highlights of Ethereum Consensus Layer meeting 92
In Consensus-layer Call 92, the Ethereum core developers discussed a few
agendas like Goerli-Shadow-Fork-5,
issues related to Merge, and more. They also announced
Goerli-Shadow-Fork-6 and it is planned for next week.
Read the summary of the call
Shadow fork 10 was a success
No client incompatibilities were observed except for some Besu nodes
which were running on an older version and needed an update and other
minor inconvenience in Lodestar and Erigon.
Mainnet shadow fork 10 seems to have gone extremely well!— sassal.eth 🦇🔊🐼 (@sassal0x) July 28, 2022

Huff - new smart contract language released
Huff is said to be the most gas-optimized smart contract language to
ever touch the EVM. It enables you to optimize your contracts by up to
80% compared to other languages like Solidity and Vyper. Huff is an
extremely low-level assembly-like language designed for developing
highly optimized smart contracts for the Ethereum Virtual Machine. To
learn more check out the thread below.

Rocket pool's Redstone upgrade and 1000 ETH deposit
Redstone is the name of the Rocket Pool release that includes The Merge
compatibility. This upgrade will be launched before The Merge of the
mainnet. Read our [blogpost](200K ETH staked on Rocketpool and the Redstone upgrade(etherworld.co) covering all the feature inside the upgrade
here. A 1000 ETH has been deposited in the Rocket pool which will
eventually help in staking as Rocket pool is an ETH staking protocol.
Our Redstone protocol enhancement brings powerful new features for node operators! It's important that all @rocket_pool node operators complete this upgrade to be ready for The Merge.— Rocket Pool (@Rocket_Pool) July 27, 2022
Check out our helpful timeline and guide to be ready!https://t.co/C7aQ5lleI2
