Wow, page 100! 

I've finally gotten around to releasing the windows builds for testing_0.4.3 which includes the Qt stake minting function:  https://github.com/yacoin/yacoin/releases/tag/testing_0.4.3
Stop the presses!  I noticed my POS mining performance fixes aren't in the testing_0.4.3 branch.  I know it's a hard change to test, because you have to have a big wallet with lots of ripe POS inputs to see if it really works. So far I'm getting fantastic results performance wise. But I need a few days of non-stop POS minting to be sure I didn't break anything.

See my post:

All of your other changes are there except for https://github.com/yacoin/yacoin/pull/34 which I haven't merged yet. It looks like you are having good results so far based on your thread!  Cool

This release is for testing everything else, but I  will release another testing build for pull 34 soon.

Ubuntu ppa:yacoin/yacoin was updated with 0.4.3.0~saucy1 which is close to final version being released real soon. ~trusty1 would need bitcoin core to upload libdb4.8 so it didn't work yet.

/u/yacointip is working again. http://www.reddit.com/r/yacointip

For anyone that doesn't receive the automatic messages from Github.  Yacoin 0.4.3 stable was released yesterday, and the Windows wallet has been upgraded today and can be downloaded from yacoin.org

This is different from the 0.4.3 testing version (doesn't have the openssl fix), so if you have that, you'll still want to upgrade.

While the openssl bug probably did not affect your Yacoin client, we strongly urge everyone to upgrade asap just to be safe.

Changes for 0.4.3:

Includes security fix for https://www.openssl.org/news/secadv_20140407.txt

Qt checkbox to enable stake minting.

Multiple POS enhancements.

MSVC++ Native version.

Scrypt-Jane updates.

Thanks to:

And most of all the Yacoin community!

I just tried the 0.4.3 wallet. Since minting is automatic when the wallet is not encrypted, for such wallets shouldn't the checkbox to enable stake minting be checked by default?

Thanks for trying it out!  

The checkbox has no effect for non encrypted wallets and I did consider just disabling it. I still can if it really bothers everyone  Grin  Running an unencrypted wallet for POS minting is such a bad idea though that even more than that, I was looking into a way to not allow running the client in the future unless it's encrypted.

In fact, can anyone think of a scenario where an unencrypted wallet is desirable?

For me the probability of forgetting the password is far greater than someone's breaking into my computer and stealing my coins. I hate having to write down and look up passwords. There are so many passwords asssociated with protocurrency. There are some reasons for mandatory seatbelt laws -- because if you are seriously injured there is a cost to the society due to traffic disruption/rescue/medical/loss of labor... so the governemnt could feel entitled to ask anyone who wants to have the privilege to drive on public road to wear seatbelt. Now what's the excuse for a mandatory wallet password?

Great, I will look into later.  Maybe someone else can as well?  From what I understand Coin Control has nothing to do with 'coin age' as coin control is for managing multiple addresses and was originally built for Bitcoin--obviously coin age does not apply, no Proof of Stake.

OK, thanks for your insight.  Just an idea I'm throwing out there. This wouldn't be done unless everyone agreed on the change.

Agree here - I don't actually encrypt all of my wallets.  The one I use for receiving mined YAC is not encrypted.  I also tend to segregate everything on my network onto VM's and such though, so nothing new gets installed on the machine with that wallet.

Hi all,

With all the brouhaha about OpenSSL1.0.1?, is/would it be sufficient to just re(compile)link with OpenSSL1.0.1g, whether one is rebuilding a gcc version on Linux, MAC, Windows or a MSVC++ version on Windows?

Yes recompile is enough. Fixing the bug in yacoin means requiring higher version in makefiles and readme docs.
