We are all concerned about the btc dispute.
I read that the Segregated witness had a host of other improvements to protocol.

Could anyone please tell me what other improvements these are?

Thanks

One I learned about the other day:  256 bit Bitcoin addresses in addition to the 160 bit addresses we have today.

You can about the reasoning here:  

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1895455.0;all

The actual details of the proposal are better found in BIP 173:

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

Ok well some of that went straight above my head. However, i got some good points.

I read that a compromise is in the air....what is that?

Could somebody please post a link?
