You can select multiple contacts, and still do all the actions you could do on a single contact. In particular, paying to them all and removing them all. This covers the first two bullet points of #1372. Finally, make the new contact dialog box have a sensible width that can display a full address without scrolling
This fixes some bugs in contact editing: - a changed address is now checked for validity. Shows error if invalid and restores prior value - the changes are saved, before they were dropped - adding a new contact switches to the contacts tab, it used to switch to the address tab As an enhancement, the contact name, as well as its address, can be edited and updated. Finally, the platform edit key can also be used to edit, in adition to double-clicking. This is typically the F2 key.
Previously the verifier job would scan all transactions in unverified_tx each time it ran. Nothing was ever removed from this map; it would essentially be the full set of transactions. As the job runs about 10 times a second, for a wallet with 500 txs this would be 5,000 useless loops a second. This patch makes unverified_tx be simply the set of confirmed transactions that haven't yet been verified. txs are added once confirmed, and removed once verified. Hence it will almost always be empty.
The verifier, like the synchronizer, now runs as part of the network proxy thread.
This is a cleaner generalization of the functionality added to network_proxy.py a few months ago, whereby jobs can be added and removed from a thread's main loop. This allows us to cut down on unnecessary threads. A follow-up patch will update the proxy to this framework.
