v.1.4.0

@spectrecoin spectrecoin released this Jun 8, 2018 · 19 commits to master since this release

This is a new release of the Spectrecoin software. Please update to v1.4 ASAP.

Main changes:

  • Implementation of Qt Web Engine (replaces Qt Web Kit)
  • Various C++ / JS updates in relation to the Qt Web Engine
  • XSPEC donation address changed to direct staking donations to the XSPEC Core Team. Refer to the Discord channel #xspec-donations for details.
  • The donation probability is set to a minimum of 10% of the stake rewards. Please refer to the latest newsletter for further details: https://news.spectreproject.io/spectrecoin-funding-update/
  • Visual studio compiler instead of MingW for Windows

Anonymous-Transactions:

The anonymous transaction system has been tested and is working and most PRIVATE-2-PRIVATE transactions can be executed with a min ring size of 4 at this time. We have removed the JS function in the 'Send' > 'Advanced Options' for "Suggest Ring Size". This JS function was superfluous and faulty. We have set the default ring size to 16 but this can be adjusted.

Windows Build Process has changed

Changes that were also included in the short-lived v1.3.4

Introduction of a staking donation setting allowing donation of a percentage of staking rewards to the developers (this defaults to 5% but can be adjusted to anything between 0 and 100% in Options or by using the -stakingdonation command line parameter, e.g. -stakingdonation=50 for 50%)

To upgrade, simply extract the new wallet and launch it. There is no need to copy or move any data files around. However, you should always have a backup of your wallet.dat file from the data directory somewhere safe.

Linux .debs (including for the Raspberry Pi) will be available soon.

If you want to build from source, then please do not use the automatically-generated "Source code" downloads above, but instead check the tag out after doing a recursive clone from GitHub. This is because we use Git submodules and the GitHub automatically-generated downloads do not contain the necessary metadata.
