Blocknet Wallet 3.13.2

This Blocknet wallet release contains additional XBridge support, efficiency improvements, and preparations for the migration to the Bitcoin v18 codebase. Let’s take a look at some of these changes.

Note: Service Nodes will need to update their configuration files.

  • XBridge protocol bump and support for the new signrawtransactionwithwallet command. This support will make the new Bitcoin v18 and Syscoin 4 compatible.
  • Coin Control is now available as a standalone window in the redesign, which can be accessed from the program menu (Tools > Coin Control).
  • Added compatibility for Bitcoin v18 codebase header sync to support the upcoming migration of Blocknet’s base chain to Bitcoin’s v18 codebase.
  • XRouter’s xrConnect call now also returns fetchlimit and timeout.
  • Fixed various XBridge and XRouter crashes under high load stress tests.
  • Removed the unnecessary “CheckBlock” log that’s reported around the UpdateTip log.

Block DX 1.3.0

This Block DX release includes various user experience improvements and bug fixes, which can be viewed below.

Note: This release requires Blocknet wallet version 3.13.2

Configuration Notice

Block DX now has a message overlay on the order form and order books of markets that you are not configured to trade on. This feature not only helps the user understand that they can’t currently trade on the market, but provides them with an actionable step to begin configuration.

Paste Enabled Data Directory Field

After feedback from the community, the ability to paste the location of their wallet data directories has been added for a better user experience. This ability simplifies setup for those with many wallets and have the directory locations on-hand.

Error Message Bug Fix

An error was resolved that was preventing the updated, more helpful custom error messages from being presented. With this issue fixed it should make it much easier to troubleshoot when these error messages arise.

Rounding Error Bug Fix

An error was reported and successfully fixed regarding rounding errors in the value presented when calculating the ‘Total’ amount when placing an order as well as a discrepancy between the order book values and the values shown in the Order Details window.

Looking Forward

There are many exciting milestones still ahead including migrating the Blocknet base chain to utilize Bitcoin’s v18 codebase, market and limit order functionality on Block DX, and integration of a lite multiwallet being developed by CloudChains Inc, which is powered by the Blocknet Protocol. View the roadmap.

Blocknet will continue breaking new ground as we move through 2019. Be sure to keep up with the latest developments by joining the Blocknet community on Discord and subscribing to the biweekly newsletter.
