Hyperledger Besu version 22.7.0 released
22.7.0 is our Quarterly release with some bug fixes over the previous 22.4.4. This is a recommended update for all users on public networks and those using Bonsai. This release also make many improvements to underlying peering code for better peering on public networks. There are a number of fixes around Merge-related code and the robustness of Besu as a whole.
With the stability of Bonsai in 22.7.0 and some planned optimizations, they are anticipating changing it to the default storage format at some point in the future.
Today, we released @HyperledgerBesu version 22.7.0! This is our quarterly release with many fixes over 22.4.x and is a recommended update for all public network users!— Hyperledger Besu (@HyperledgerBesu) August 3, 2022

Lighthouse- Slippy releaseThere were two separate bug fixes-
- The first bug results in a steady memory footprint increase of 100MB per month. It has been less than two weeks since that release so it's unlikely that a significant memory increase can be observed, yet. It was fixed in #3408.
- The second bug can result in an error during fork choice. This error will only be triggered in rare timing-based circumstances and will resolve itself within seconds. It was fixed in #3402.
New Lighthouse release!— Sigma Prime (@sigp_io) August 3, 2022
This high-priority update fixes two bugs, one introduced in v2.4.0 and another in v2.5.0.
Users running v2.4.0 or v2.5.0 will see ~100mb of additional RAM used per month until they upgrade.

Optimism Bedrock UpgradeOptimism states that the difference between their client Geth and Bedrock's execution layer is 500 lines of code, and Bedrock is a rollup design created to convert Ethereum's existing code into Rollup code. Its major features include-
Reduces L1 to L2 deposit times by over 4x
Slashes the cost of data submission to L1 by ~20%
Cuts difference with Geth down to a slim ~500 lines of code
Supports any number of alternative proof systems (including ZK)
Optimism Bedrock is coming soon™️, and when it does it will change the rollup game forever.— Optimism (✨🔴_🔴✨) (@optimismFND) August 2, 2022
It will lay the protocol's foundation for years to come and serve as THE model for rollup architecture.
It's named Bedrock for good reason. 🪨https://t.co/NNAVdseULA

NFT Exchange Magic Eden Expands to Ethereum
By incorporating NFTs built on the Ethereum blockchain into its platform, Magic Eden is going multi-chain. The marketplace's marketing assistance, whitelisting tools, and minting toolkit will be useful to Ethereum NFT developers. Users will be able to buy NFTs using either ETH or SOL thanks to a cross-currency trading solution that Magic Eden is developing. At least two additional chains will be added in the future, according to the firm.
