Ethereum Bulletin #59


Merge Client Releases

As the mainnet merge is approaching, all the clients have started releasing their newer versions. The merge will require both a consensus layer client and an Execution layer client and all the mainnet users need to upgrade their clients before the Bellatrix fork on September 6th.

Go Ethereum an execution layer client released Geth v1.10.22 (Promavess)

Lighthouse a consensus layer client has released Lighthouse v3.0.0 (Rick Prime)

Teku v22.8.1 released - Consensus layer client

Nethermind an Execution layer client has released version 1.14.0

DAppNode multiclient features

In the Prater Testnet and Gnosis Chain, DAppNode users have had a choice of the Execution Layer (EL) client and Consensus Layer (CL) client.

You are no longer limited to Prysm with the multiclient setup and can use any CL client you choose. This has enormous benefits for you since you can respond rapidly to any potential flaws on any client implementation and you can encourage client diversity, which means that by running minority clients, you increase the overall resilience of the Ethereum Network.
