Having the transparency effect as an option would be the best solution.

Agreed, though I should add I think the option should be to turn it off, i.e. defaulting to on.

Furthermore, a color pallet for choosing the color of transparency would be really cool! Of course it would be extremely low on the priority list.

Things like setting the color of palette or transparency of the background are not very important in a financial app, and making them options is overkill and only complicates the application logic.

It should either be implemented correctly, and readable for everyone on every kind of PC by default (including those with crappy old gfx cards), or not in there at all.

I'm not against it, and have only removed it "for now" to err on the safe side.

You're welcome to submit it again as a pull request, but please handle the known problems such as readability when full-screen or on top of some crowded background.

Upon second thought, your absolutely right. Then again it is a GUI wrapper so...

Maybe, one day when I get of my lazy ass, I could branch my own with the pretty features I like =)

As I said for MultiBit client, is it possible to put all text on this service: http://crowdin.net ( or something like it )
So it will be easy and fast to translate it on many languages Smiley

Interesting, that service seems to be "free for open source". I'll take a look at it.

Hi John,
Yes - it looks a pretty good site.   You have to fill out a little 'It's an open source project really" form that someone reviews and then I think you are good to go.

I am still waiting for them to get back to me - sent it late on Thursday so I imagine it is sat in someones list of 'todo's.

I have been using this client my primary wallet for a while now and it still rocks!  I've submitted a small issue on Git.

Having difficulty compiling this for windows.  Using the vs2008 qt library wont compile at all, using the mingw library I can get it to compile but has all sorts of dll dependencies to run.

Is it possible to compile one exe with all libraries statically linked on windows?

Yes, in fact I'm working on exactly such a project right now.  I have had no problems compiling Qt on Windows (the entire framework plus my own app & dependencies).  What sorts of issues are you seeing?

Oh, I should mention, if you want to statically link Qt to your executables, Qt has to be built statically as well. I had to recompile the Qt library on Windows for this to work.

It's actually harder to compile Qt using mingw than it is using the Visual Studio compiler, at least that was my experience...

I did a special "all included" build for the main client (see https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=44681.0).

As soon as there is an official 0.5 version I will update this build with QT.

Can we please get the block count and # connections display back? Maybe next to the progress bar? I like being able to see the number going up rather than a bar that barely moves.

We explicitly decided to have no raw numbers in the base UI, as they are overwhelming to new users. If you want to see it, you can view the number of blocks as tooltip of the progress bar (or the throbber icon).

Though thinking of it, some kind of livelyness indicator would be nice. Indeed, if you have to download the entire block chain, the progress bar moves very slow.
The throbber icon rotates at the same speed whether actual blocks are being downloaded in or not. One option would be to adapt its speed somehow based on the download speed (within reasonable limits).

How about adding a rolling pulse to the scrollbar that only pulses when a new block gets downloaded?

(I dont always get new reply notifications, pls send a pm when you think it has happened)

Wanna gimme some BTC for any or no reason? 1FmvtS66LFh6ycrXDwKRQTexGJw4UWiqDX Smiley

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!
