Release v0.4.5 (code 45) TESTNET

@dpad85 dpad85 released this Apr 19, 2019 · 3 commits to testnet since this release

Changes

Added a virtual keyboard when importing a seed

This also brings a few UX improvements:

  • Words entered by the user are checked against the BIP-39 words list and crossed out if they are wrong
  • Word can be autocompleted after entering first 2 characters

Added a button to clean the wallet's on-chain cache.

This button is at the bottom of the Network Infos page, and will force the wallet to resynchronize its view of the blockchain. Depending on the network connectivity and the server responsiveness, this synchronization may take a while.

Fixed an issue with UTXOs being locked by the wallet

This would prevent the wallet to send on-chain funds with an Insufficient funds error.

Release v0.4.2 (code 42) TESTNET

@dpad85 dpad85 released this Mar 28, 2019 · 46 commits to mainnet since this release

This is a major release for the mainnet version of the application, which has now caught up with the testnet version and can receive payments over Lightning.

Summary (for the mainnet version)

Enabling receive over Lightning

This feature must be explicitely enabled by the user. To do so, she first may have to close old existing channels (if their remote refund delay is 144 blocks which is not high enough). Enabling the feature will also display a message warning the user that she has to make sure that the app doesn't lose internet connectivity for two weeks straight.

Background watcher

A service periodically runs in the background, starting a light process (see CheckElectrumSetup) that connects to an electrum server and checks the blockchain. In case a cheating attempt is detected, a notification will be displayed to the user, urging her to start the application as soon as possible. If this background watcher cannot run or connect to the internet, after a while, a message will inform the user.

UI update

The left-hand panel in the home page has been updated to also display a lightning payment request, with a QR code. The payment request's description and amount are editable.

The payment items layout in the transaction list has been updated and should be more readable.

A display on top of the channels' list (right-hand panel in the home page) has been added, summarizing the total amount that can currently be received or sent over Lightning. Note that this amount is optimistic, meaning that funds in unconfirmed channels will be taken into account, and that this amount is aggregated and may not be sent/received in a single payment.

A similar display is added on top of each channel's details page.

Liquidity Service

When opening a channel to ACINQ's mainnet node, the user can also request this node to open a channel back for a small fee, using the push mechanism.

This is an minor optimization release for Mainnet.

Changes

App can send payments sooner

With the size of the network growing fast, the initialization of the routing table could take quite a long time on mainnet. Thanks to an optimization in bitcoin-lib the router is now able to process payments much sooner.
