After the Fork is before the fork - Dencun is next!

With Shapella successfully allowing for withdrawals, the Ethereum community is turning their attention to the next fork. Although the exact timing remains uncertain (with most expecting it in Q4), the scope is gradually becoming more defined.

The primary focus will be assisting L2 in scaling by providing dedicated storage on the L1 Consensus Layer (referred to as “Proto-Danksharding” or EIP-4844).The fork's name appears to be settling on "Dencun" (a combination of Cancun + Deneb).
