LightningPeach wallet v0.5.0-mainnet-beta

Release notes:

  • In this release we introduce two user modes:

    • Standard mode – the mode, in which there is no communication with central server. This allows you to save anonymity provided by the Lightning network.
    • Extended mode – in this mode you can use all wallet functions with the help of central server. This opens access to such features as address book, paying by Lightning ID and recurring payments.

    The user mode can be changed anytime.

  • Invoices in socket messages, which are sent through the server, are now encrypted. It means that invoice data, as well as received payment requests, now can't be read by third parties, thus it provides more security for your invoices and received payment requests.

  • We are introducing QR codes for connecting from the Peach mobile wallet. It means that, If you have public IP address, then you can keep your desktop node active and connect to it from your Peach mobile wallet with the help of generated QR code.

  • The Privacy Policy document has been updated. Main changes include the following:

    • Added the descirption of what data is collected in each user mode (Standard and Extended one).
    • Updated information on collecting additional user data with Google Analytics and Firebase.
    • Removed several purposes for which user's data is collected.

Verifying the Release

In order to verify the release, you'll need to have gpg or gpg2 installed on your system. Once you've obtained a copy (and hopefully verified that as well), you'll first need to import LighntingPeach Wallet's key if you haven't done so already:

curl "https://keyserver.ubuntu.com/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x3B50C645039078ED" | gpg --import

Once you have LighntingPeach Wallet's PGP key you can verify the release (assuming manifest-v0.5.0-mainnet-beta.txt and manifest-v0.5.0-mainnet-beta.txt.sig are in the current directory) with:

gpg --verify manifest-v0.5.0-mainnet-beta.txt.sig

That will verify the signature on the main manifest page which ensures integrity and authenticity of the binaries and executables you've downloaded locally. Next, depending on your operating system you should then re-calculate the sha256 sum of the binary or executable, and compare that with the following hashes (which are included in the manifest file):

One can use the shasum -a 256 <file name here> tool in order to re-compute the sha256 hash of the target binary or executable for your operating system. The produced hash should be compared with the hashes listed above and they should match exactly.
