Summary

Danny Ryan, the ethereum 2.0 coordinator, has announced the final release of the ethereum 2.0 spec version 0.1. “Major release centered on the integration of the IETF BLS standards into the eth2 spec,” Ryan said, further adding: “This release also contains a deep and much needed reorganization of files/directories… The rest of the changes are some minor optimizations and cleanups. You’d think they’d run for a bit at this state while waiting for the audits, with the multi-client testnet launch then being the key indicator. Most of these are generally backward compatible, and all should be very straight forward to integrate. v0.10.0 marks a stable target for Phase 0 for multi-client testnets and security reviews. That timeline appears to be the reasonable estimate of by when realistically this might go live, with the multi-client testnet needing around three months of smooth running. Justin Drake, an eth researcher at the Ethereum Foundation, has set the unofficial non-deadline of 30th July for the launch of the genesis block.
