Is there an updated Opcode Specifications available for the EVM to date?

Specifically, is there a continuously updated list of Opcode Specifications similar to that found in the ethereum yellow paper?

  • What's wrong with the Yellow Paper? It contains the number of stack words which are popped and pushed by each operation which you request below. Commented May 1, 2018 at 22:25

The solidity documentation has a mostly mostly-up-to-date listing of opcodes and the arguments they take.




It's here, on Trail of Bits' github.
