Since the Mainnet Merge Announcement message on the 25th of August, which listed Merge-ready releases, many client teams have released additional updates to their clients.

Some of these update are listed as "high-priority" or "required" by the client teams, and contain fixes for issues related to block production, compatibility issues,  performance issues and more.

It is strongly advised to stay up-to-date on the latest available versions of clients being used. This can be done by continue monitoring client repositories, client mailing lists and client social media channels for updates. The "Mainnet Merge Announcement" blog post will also continue being updated with the latest versions of clients up until The Merge.

Currently, the recommended client versions are:

Execution Layer
Besu
22.7.2 Download

Erigon
v2022.09.01-alpha Download

go-ethereum (geth)
v1.10.23 Download

Nethermind
v1.14.1 Download

Consensus Layer
Lighthouse v3.1.0 Download
Lodestar
v1.0.0 Download

Nimbus
v22.9.0 Download

Prysm
v3.1.0 Download

Teku
22.9.0 Download

On each of the release pages (found by clicking the "Download" link) you can read more about why each update is important for your specific client.
