The specifications for Devnet 8 have been released, but the launch date remains to be announced. The devnet will commence with the Capella Genesis. The Ethereum Core Developers have updated the Blob Explorer to the latest specifications. Around 2000 blobs have been submitted on Devnet 7, leading to the discovery of issues such as client splits and chains not being followed. Specifically, Devnet 7 is grappling with deposit-related issues that might be associated with potential fork digest problems.
A problem was identified with the latest version of Geth due to the presence of unpatched Geth nodes in the network. This issue led to invalid message errors. Furthermore, a deposit processing issue was seen on teku-geth due to incorrect usage of forkID.
An unresolved issue was noted wherein a specific error message appeared on two nimbus nodes. The message does not seem to be related to CL.

Furthermore, a deposit processing issue was seen on teku-geth due to incorrect usage of forkID.
The Core Developers have also been working on c-kzg, a minimal implementation of the Polynomial Commitments API for EIP-4844, written in C. The Lighthouse team has pinpointed several issues with the c-kzg library, with two key problems in focus:
- Windows Support: There is a need to address the compatibility of the c-kzg library with Windows. The current implementation may not be compatible with Windows systems, and efforts are being made to resolve this issue.
- Simultaneous Compilation of Mainnet and Minimal Version: Another limitation with the c-kzg library is the inability to compile the mainnet and minimal versions simultaneously for testing purposes. This constraint hinders the team's ability to conduct comprehensive testing, and finding a solution is of utmost importance.
