    A Python-based development and testing framework for smart contracts targeting the Ethereum Virtual Machine. [Moved to: https://github.com/eth-brownie/brownie] (by iamdefinitelyahuman)

    Development & test framework Brownie v1.7 features improved package management, persistent deployment data, queryable source code via Etherscan and a revamped console mode.

  • EthList

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • mist

    [DEPRECATED] Mist. Browse and use Ðapps on the Ethereum network.

    Mist Wallet v0.7.0 is out with French language support, CustomContracts Events, logging and UI bug fixes.

  • EIPs

    The Ethereum Improvement Proposal (by Arachnid)

    The Ethereum Name Service proposes a fully fledged DNS compatible standard.

  • ethmerge.com-content

    Markdown formatted content for the ethmerge.com website.

    u/InsideTheSimulation are we able to see how many people viewed ethmerge.com somewhere?

  • Parity

    The fast, light, and robust client for the Ethereum mainnet.

    ~ The Berlin Ethereum protocol upgrade this week was successful! One client, Open Ethereum, experienced a syncing issue, but this was quickly fixed. Well done to the Eth1 clients teams for a successful release.

  • execution-specs

    Specifications for the Ethereum 1.0. Tracking network upgrades.

    ~ All eyes then turn to the next Eth1 upgrade - London, featuring EIP-1559. Development progress is going well with several clients already successfully syncing to the Aleut devnet. The focus for the next couple of weeks will be the JSON RPC. There is quite a bit of appetite in the teams to get the date for London firmed up. This date was the subject of intense debate on this week’s All Core Devs call; it is not yet decided which EIPs will be included with London although we know that the difficulty bomb delay alongside EIP-3198, BASEFEE opcode, have made the cut. 3403, 3074, 2537, and 2677 are still being debated. If many more are included it’s likely the date for London will shift to August. This would both give more breathing room to test the changes but also help out The Merge by reducing the number of EIPs that need to be considered in the same breath. Alternately, if there is a need, an upgrade fork could occur in between London and The Merge, but I think this unlikely given how badly people want The Merge to happen ASAP. Basically, it comes down to what MUST be delivered this year vs what can wait 1 year+ for delivery.
