Welcome back, MintCoin!

This is the first release of MintCoin in more than 2 years. The primary focus has getting the code working on modern systems, as well as fixing the most painful user issues.

  • Peers updated from DNS #43
    No longer will you have to give hints to the wallet so it can know where to connect by setting addnode= in your MintCoin.conf. An initial set of peers is pulled from the DNS.

    Note: We are looking for more people to run a DNS server. Scripts to set this up are in the MintCoin-DNS-lookup-server repository.

  • Fix for out-of-memory in Windows 32-bit wallet
    Building the Qt wallet for Windows to be "large address aware" fixes the crashing that many Windows users experience. Some more details can be found here.

  • Display when the next coin will be available for minting as a tooltip #57

    example tooltip

  • Support for ARM CPU #44
    The wallet can run on single-board computers (SBC) if they have enough RAM (about 2 gigabyte).

  • Scary warnings fixed #59 #60 #61

  • Build fixes
    We have a ton of fixes for Linux (both Debian-based and Fedora distributions), Windows, and macOS builds.

  • Lots of other bug fixes
    There have been quite a few other small fixes and documentation changes.
