Summary

  • From now on users can mix with the wallet in daemon mode: wassabee --mix --wallet {WalletName}. This is an experimental feature. Please note that, we don't plan to build a fully featured daemon in the near future.
  • Added a Test Password tab and refactored the wallet creation workflow, in a way that we now hopefully minimized the chances of losing or mistyping passwords.
  • Added File/Open menu which is a shortcut to access configuration and log files.
  • Fixed scaling issues on some Linuxes.
  • Added deterministic builds, so now members of the community can verify that our released binaries are built from the same source code that is on GitHub (see Advanced Guide.)
  • Hide the dust: coins those are <= 0.0001BTC won't appear as part of the wallet (they'll be still there) since spending them would be either more expensive than not spending them and spending them would be detrimental for privacy in many cases.

Newbie Guide

While setting up Wasabi is straightforward, even a Linux wizard with the longest beard can get stuck on the most basic tasks. Consider taking a look at the Installation Instructions guide.

Advanced Guide

If you want to build Wasabi from source code or update the source code check out these instructions.

From version 1.1.3 Wasabi also introduces reproducible builds: Deterministic Build Guide

FAQ

  • Can I use my own Tor instance, instead of Wasabi's built in one? If you already have Tor, and it is running, then Wasabi will try to use that first. If it is not running, then Wasabi will use its built-in Tor.
  • Requirements? x64, linux, >win7, >osx.10.12.

Release Notes

There were 223 commits since last release.

Notable changes those aren't listed in the summary:

  • Improved memory usage.
  • Fixed many crash-suspicious scenarios.
  • Fixed logo on Linux.
  • Added Blockstream.info to the website as recommended block explorer, because they have onion endpoint.
  • Added Advanced Info wallet tab, where among other things, users can take the xpub/zpub and similar information out of their wallets and import into other wallets (DANGEROUS: most other wallets fail against network analysis.)
  • Autocopy can be now turned off from the settings if someone finds it annoying.
  • Optimized coordinator communication (don't request status until all other responses things are finished.)
  • Hack around Tor downtime issue (somehow the older fix has stopped working.)
  • Add DANGEROUS clearnet mode for debugging, can be set in the settings.
  • Improve blockchain analysis heuristic to better identify coinjoins.
