According to a statement from Danny Ryan, ETH 2.0 coordinator, the last public testnet for ethereum 2.0 is due to take place in less than two weeks.
Danny said in a testnets discussion:
After discussions with client teams, the next multi-client testnet (mainnet config including min validator numbers) will have a min genesis time of aug 4 (likely 1 or 2pm utc).
We’ll also be showcasing ‘Launchpad’ on this net, the educational deposit interface aimed at hobbyists. I expect the deposit contract and config to be made public in next couple of days.
Note, ‘min genesis time’ is approximately the time the network will start if min validator deposits are made prior to 48 hours before that time. Otherwise, the time will be triggered by meeting the min validator count whenever it does.
The ethereum 2.0 coordinator further informs that people have to deposit a fake eth and then go to testnet. Duration is currently estimated at 3 months with a final date of November 4th, which means that the genesis block of ethereum 2.0 can start on November 5th.
