The v0.10.0 specification has recently released the previous week. v0.10.0 is the final form of deblocking phase 0. The time Devcon 5 was introduced, it conjointly introduced varied updated versions to phase 0, besides integrating the new IETF BLS customary algorithm.
These changes had once disrupted the smooth development rhythm of the Eth2 consumer team. This caused the testnet on the string to defer the release. With the v0.10.0 specification, the consumer team will revisit to their own pace.
With the announcement of the v0.10.0 specification, the consumer testnets and third-party code auditing would have explicit goals. To this time, there have conjointly been various navigation resources updates.
The new update details have been talked here in brief. In the ongoing audit work, the client will have to upgrade the code according to the v0.10.0 specification.
Further, they will integrate the new BLS standard algorithm, and then they would aim to try to make the test network run stably. As soon as the initial stability gets acquired by this specification, the multi-client work will start.
If this test which conducted ends up being a success, they can utilise this as a starting point and also arrange a creative process with the participation of more than two clients.
A lot of confusion had risen in this process, which indicates that there is a lot more to learn. Once there is clarification, the ambiguity in the spec can also be eliminated, and a more precise picture might emerge.
If the changes made are small, then the client can fastly integrate these changes, then match the testnet, and move on. However, if the magnitude is larger, the integration work might be more time consuming, and require additional test as well.
The lighthouse client leader, Paul Hauner, had recently published a tweet which reviews the recent optimisation work done by their clients and what they had learned.
In the previous four weeks, they have been running a less public testnet and looking at the results. One thing is clear that there has been progressing on all matters like the BLS algorithm, block processing, database reading and writing.
The Prismatic Labs had recently restarted their public testnet. They made use of the configuration of the mainnet specifications. Apart from this, they also joined the witness message aggregation method.
Vitalik had also put forward a proposal on how one can accelerate the Eth1 + Eth2 merger. If this happens, it will allow Eth1 to benefit from the new Eth2 infrastructure as soon as possible. The proposal suggests that Eth1 should migrate so that it becomes a shard of Eth2.
This merging of Eth1 into Eth2 would majorly support Eth1 to ingress the extensible shard data layer in a native protocol way. The most hyping direction developed on Ethereum is the idea of placing data on Layer-1 and implementing the scalable Layer-2 protocol.
The success of Phase 1.5 depends on the success of the two separate parts-Phase one development of Eth2 and stateless Ethereum on Eth1. Once the development of these two parts is known, one can suggest when and how the implementation of this proposal will work.
