A new fork is right around the corner. It seems both ethcore and foundation devs have decided to do a new fork to fix the DDOS issues plaguing ethereum lately.
From what I see they're doing all the old mistakes as before. They don't take the possibility of the "original" post fork chain staying seriously and don't plan to change the transaction format to prevent replays.
The fork seems to be very rushed with next Monday as the target.
I hope they reconsider, if this fork goes anything like ETC it'll be a disaster. Arguments like "nobody would stay on a DDOSable chain" just don't stand in a world of speculation and markets.
