I just uploaded testnet and prodnet previews of the next major version (probably 3.0?) to the download page at

http://code.google.com/p/bitcoin-wallet/downloads/list

It includes the latest bitcoinj 0.8 snapshot.

Notable user-facing changes:

  • Instant initial app setup for new users. No need for any blockchain download before you can receive the first payment!
  • Reduced app size to just 1.5 MB (down from 15 MB) by not carrying a blockchain snapshot any more
  • Reduced blockchain storage requirement to less than 1 MB (down from 25 MB+)
  • Increased speed of blockchain replay (needed in case of key imports or error recovery)

Plus some small enhancements and bugfixes which already went into the stable release 2.44 I put up on Google Play today.

Important: By default all of the enhancements only become active for new installs. If you want to benefit, you need to reset and replay the blockchain once. This will upgrade you to a new block store format. After that, if you decide to go back to the last stable release 2.44, the app will force close once, removing the block store. Just start it a second time and it will replay the chain using the old format again.

As always, treat previews with care. Make sure you've got a backup of your private keys.

I updated the previews. It now can backup private keys to email and dropbox-style services. Also, there is a simple block explorer (activate in labs preferences).

I promoted the previews to beta and included the latest code. It is now ready for a big round of testing! Would you help making this the most complete release ever?

As always, you can get the test versions from:

http://code.google.com/p/bitcoin-wallet/downloads/list

There is also a more detailed list of changes:

http://bitcoin-wallet.googlecode.com/git-history/bitcoinj-0.8/wallet/CHANGES

You can now report issues by using Options -> Settings -> Diagnostics -> Report Issue. If your issue is somehow related to your specific wallet, feel free to add the wallet dump (no private keys will be exposed).

If you haven't backed up your private keys yet, now is a good time to do: Options -> Backup Keys -> Export private keys.

Does it support Owncloud?

The online storage services need to provide an intent filter in their app. See Google Drive as an example.
