No changes since the last testing release (0.94.99.1). I've decided to sticky the latest stable release thread from now. Enjoy

Binaries:

https://github.com/goatpig/BitcoinArmory/releases/tag/v0.95.0

Changelog:

https://github.com/goatpig/BitcoinArmory/blob/v0.95.0/changelog.txt

- Forgot to bump the version and add the date in the changelog, will do for 0.95.1
- On windows, the automated DB will spawn a command line dialog. This wasn't the intention originally, but it goes a long way conveying the change in architecture. I've decided to leave it as is until 0.95.1.

*************************************

Botched auto bitcoind management on Windows,
you'll have to turn it off until I get a fix out.

@users of Qubes OS:

0.95 is currently not working with Whonix, investigating a fix to that right now.


Debian 8 template is running 0.95 ok. Those that add parameters to their /usr/share/applications/armory.desktop file may need to invoke python directly (i.e. "Exec=python /usr/lib/armory/ArmoryQt.py <arguments>" instead of running the /usr/bin/armory script file. Don't forget to run /usr/lib/qubes/qubes-trigger-sync-app-menus after editing your .desktop files.

Hi,

thanks for finalizing the new release! I am keen to check it out Smiley

I get the following compilation error in Swig:
Code:
CppBlockUtils_wrap.cxx:3991:77: error: ‘type_name’ is not a member of ‘swig::traits<long long unsigned int>’

Armory 0.95 is not working for me. Due to some changes in 0.95 (e.g. Client and Database split), I assume that my arg in my ArmoryQt shortcut target which is set to point to alternate database directories for both Bitcoin Core and Armory is no longer valid (it was working just fine with 0.94.1). What do I have to do to get 0.95 working without changing my current alternate Bitcoin Core and Armory database locations/directories.

This is my current Armory shortcut target arg that worked quite well with 0.94.1:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Armory\ArmoryQt.exe" --satoshi-datadir="D:\Bitcoin" --datadir="D:\Armory"

Also, on the btcarmory site under "Notable Changes", it says:

"Client no longer requires a local Bitcoin node to operate as P2P has moved to ArmoryDB"

...while under "Full changelog/Added", it also states:

"ArmoryDB requires the presence of a bitcoin node on localhost:8333 and access to raw blockchain data like before".

I'm confused. Do I still or do I not have to manually fire up and sync Bitcoin core 0.13.1 before running Armory 0.95 as I did before with Armory 0.94.1? I'm running W7 x64 BTW.

Sorry for my cluelessness as I am very coding-illiterate.

That should be fine. What is probably broken is the fact that goatpig forgot to include guardian.exe which is what spawns the bitcoind when Armory is set to auto manage it.

There are two parts, the DB (ArmoryDB) and the client (ArmoryQt). ArmoryDB requires a local Bitcoind. ArmoryQt can connect to any instance of ArmoryDB, both remote and local. That does not require a local bitcoind. ArmoryQt will automatically spawn an instance of ArmoryDB of it does not detect one locally and a remote one is not specified. Thus, if you are just running ArmoryQt without doing anything to ArmoryDB, then you will still need to run Bitcoin Core locally.

tl;dr yes you still need Bitcoin Core locally.

Thank you for the timely reply and explanation. It's helping me understand a bit more though it is still a challenge for me to comprehend the intricacies of coding. I'm just a plain ol' user.

When I run ArmoryQt with the shortcut arg (specifying Bitcoin and Armory alternative/non-standard database directory paths) after starting and syncing Bitcoin Core 0.13.1 (not managed by ArmoryQt), the client opens with the ArmoryDB CLI dialog and does nothing else after the third line:



...and of course, ArmoryQt consequently gets stuck at this point without any progress...and offline:



Though I don't think it's related to my particular issue, I'm curious as to why there is a "slash" (/) instead of a "backslash" (\) between "Roaming" and "Armory" on the first line of the CLI dialog (directory path).

From what I can surmise, perhaps the ArmoryQt shortcut arg (directory locations) is not being passed on when it automatically spawns an instance of ArmoryDB, thereby not finding the specified database directories. It's most likely a far-fetched assumption on my part but if it is so, can you suggest a workaround?

Just out of curiosity, was there a reason/purpose of the binary split since it was working just fine up to 0.94.1?

That shouldn't matter. The backslash and forward slash are treated the same.

It's most likely a far-fetched assumption on my part but if it is so, can you suggest a workaround?
I doubt it.

The main reason is to make the litenode feature work. Litenode is where you run the client remotely and have it connect to an ArmoryDB instance on another machine. I think the idea is to shift Armory towards an Electrum-like architecture where you have clients and servers.

It's most likely a far-fetched assumption on my part but if it is so, can you suggest a workaround?

The same pathing command line arguments that work on the client work on the DB. You can see the full list of DB cli arg here:

https://github.com/goatpig/BitcoinArmory/blob/master/cppForSwig/BlockUtils.cpp#L812

and these are the default paths:

https://github.com/goatpig/BitcoinArmory/blob/master/cppForSwig/BlockUtils.cpp#L704

The DB will append /database to you datadir if no dbdir is specified.

If you have issues letting the client automate the DB spawning, I suggest you start the DB manually with the arguments you want and see how it operates. You will need to run ArmoryDB.exe in the command prompt.

Plenty of reason to split the server from the client. One is remote capability, another is multiple clients to one server, another is process isolation (after all, the client does everything wallets, the db does everything blockchain, and they dont intersect in these duties), another is to enable Armory to operate as a web stack element (one server in the backend, any number of clients over HTTP).

--------------------------

Ima digress here, TL;DR: it's awesome.

DB/client separation makes sense in the long term. 2 features needed in Armory are supernode and blocks over P2P. Blocks over P2P is a versatility and stability feature, supernode is a power user/professional feature. They both require aspects of the client/server separation.

Another benefit is splitting the code base, which will come in the future.

Overall this feature is inscribed in my vision for Armory. I want Armory to cater to high end users and professionals. Client/server separation is a must have in this case. Maybe this example will make my case better than a list of requirements:

When the likes of Microsoft and Dell add Bitcoin payment support, they're not integrating with Bitcoin, they are simply interfacing with a payment processor like Coinbase or BitPay.

It makes me die a little inside every time an IT giant approaches the Bitcoin space like your local florist integrates with Paypal. I would like there to be an industry standard, robust and full featured open source solution targeted at their needs, a kind of no brainer go to stack, and this is where I am trying to take Armory.

As for individual users, I fancy them all enthusiasts, and I believe their needs largely intersect with professional use cases. To give you another example, the reality towards with 0.95 is working, is that in the future you could have a server at home that runs your own Core and ArmoryDB instances, and with a JavaScript template, get your Armory GUI straight to your mobile phone, and offline sign with a Trezor on the spot, all the while fully verifying the blockchain with code you run and no privacy leak.

Imagine your friends and family are interested in Bitcoin. You could provide them with the full bitcoin experience with no privacy leak nor the need to rely on a 3rd party service. With supernode, you could even offer them a blockchain explorer service, again with no risk of privacy leaks.

Imagine in the future you are running a node to support your Lightning hub. You won't need a second node just to run Armory, point the DB to your existing one.

Imagine you want to setup a multisig scheme and split keys among several devices, some of which are online. You would be able to bounce the transaction stub between online devices, finalize and broadcast from any of these, all running against the same remote server. And then there's all the use cases I can't think of yet.

Put another way, it's the future! Flying cars and self drying clothes. Now, drink the koolaid!

Plenty of reason to split the server from the client. One is remote capability, another is multiple clients to one server, another is process isolation (after all, the client does everything wallets, the db does everything blockchain, and they dont intersect in these duties), another is to enable Armory to operate as a web stack element (one server in the backend, any number of clients over HTTP).

--------------------------

Ima digress here, TL;DR: it's awesome.

DB/client separation makes sense in the long term. 2 features needed in Armory are supernode and blocks over P2P. Blocks over P2P is a versatility and stability feature, supernode is a power user/professional feature. They both require aspects of the client/server separation.

Another benefit is splitting the code base, which will come in the future.

Overall this feature is inscribed in my vision for Armory. I want Armory to cater to high end users and professionals. Client/server separation is a must have in this case. Maybe this example will make my case better than a list of requirements:

When the likes of Microsoft and Dell add Bitcoin payment support, they're not integrating with Bitcoin, they are simply interfacing with a payment processor like Coinbase or BitPay.

It makes me die a little inside every time an IT giant approaches the Bitcoin space like your local florist integrates with Paypal. I would like there to be an industry standard, robust and full featured open source solution targeted at their needs, a kind of no brainer go to stack, and this is where I am trying to take Armory.

As for individual users, I fancy them all enthusiasts, and I believe their needs largely intersect with professional use cases. To give you another example, the reality towards with 0.95 is working, is that in the future you could have a server at home that runs your own Core and ArmoryDB instances, and with a JavaScript template, get your Armory GUI straight to your mobile phone, and offline sign with a Trezor on the spot, all the while fully verifying the blockchain with code you run and no privacy leak.

Imagine your friends and family are interested in Bitcoin. You could provide them with the full bitcoin experience with no privacy leak nor the need to rely on a 3rd party service. With supernode, you could even offer them a blockchain explorer service, again with no risk of privacy leaks.

Imagine in the future you are running a node to support your Lightning hub. You won't need a second node just to run Armory, point the DB to your existing one.

Imagine you want to setup a multisig scheme and split keys among several devices, some of which are online. You would be able to bounce the transaction stub between online devices, finalize and broadcast from any of these, all running against the same remote server. And then there's all the use cases I can't think of yet.

Put another way, it's the future! Flying cars and self drying clothes. Now, drink the koolaid!


Thanks for elaborating on your vision of Armory. Very cool stuff...especially the hardware wallet>mobile device app>private remote node/server scenario. Awesomeness indeed! Imbibing the koolaid.

Run the DB manually.

How do I do that? Running stuff in a CLI terminal gives me the heebie-jeebies...it horrifies me.

Better yet, can I just copy and paste the arg from the ArmoryQt shortcut (Core and Armory database paths) that worked before the upgrade into an ArmoryDB shortcut and run it this way?

BTW, did you get a chance to see the logs I posted above for achow101? Anything unusual in them that would indicate why it crashes on me?

Yes. This is why I instructed you to start the DB manually.

1. You mean rebuild the Armory database from scratch?
2. --dbdir has the same effect as --datadir, right?

Clean up your database folder or use another --dbdir.

ArmoryDB insists on still creating "dblog.txt" file in the default "Armory" folder location (C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Armory) in spite of the arg that specifies the alternate directory. It was crashing on me the way it did because it needs the presence of an Armory folder at the default location to be able to create dblog.txt in it. Otherwise, it refuses to proceed.

Perhaps it can be fixed in 0.95.1 if it's not too late so it will be consistent (along with the rest of the files) when opting to move the Armory database folder to a different location.

Thanks for the assistance.

1) Yes

2) No. The datadir is where your wallets, logs and setting files are, as well as where the /databases folder defaults to. --dbdir forces the the db folder to the path of your choosing.

Log files do not go in the dbdir. If you want to use a custom datadir and a custom dbdir, use both command line arguments together. You do not need to provide the DB with the same datadir as the client, i.e. it doesn't need the wallets, settings and other log files to operate.

However, the db needs a valid datadir (it won't create it for you). There isn't much I can change here. The issue you were experiencing with the log file is simply the first failure in line when the db lacks a valid datadir. Side stepping that one will only bump you to the next failure.

If you do not want to point the DB to the same datadir as the client, you can start the db directly with --datadir="/newpath" and it will set the db by default to /newpath/databases. If you let the client spawn the DB for you, the client will always push its own datadir to the DB, in which case you may want to use a custom dbdir.
