Hopefully by the middle of 2013 we will have:
+ encrypted wallets
+ HD wallets


This would be so great. I recently switched to Multibit for handling my wallet because last month Bitcoin-qt/Armory became too much for my laptop as the blockchain expanded. I still run full bitcoind on the home server to help the network, but the laptop travels a lot and the sync time was getting to be too much.

I love the Multibit interface with the MtGox values, keeping the last sent transaction details in the send tab, and the nice GTK+ theme. I miss my encrypted deterministic wallet though.


Thanks for your comments.
Yes I think the sync times are the main reasons people are looking for alternatives to bitcoin-qt but hopefully with v0.8 it should improve noticably.

Deterministic wallets I am looking forward to getting in too. The 'random key' encrypted wallets will go in first and then I can start on the HD wallets (together with all the other client teams - having them all cross compatible is pretty important).

The MultiBit sync times should also improve when bloom filters go in - currently MultiBit downloads all of the new blocks, but with bloom filters only the relevant transactions will need to be downloaded.

ever tried to get it accross the channel to amsterdam Smiley ?

ha ha - there is absolutely no keel on a narrowboat and skinfittings (i.e. holes through the hull) only about 30 cm up from the waterline so I think you would have to be mad to try that !

Better to do it on the back of a lorry !

The plan last summer was to go tootling around the UK network.
But it is quite time consuming wandering around doing nothing in particular and the siren call of Bitcoin called me away.

At the moment it is more like the quote from Dune 'travelling without motion'.

Hi Finway.
I am working on it at the moment to get it releasable.  The functionality is all there in the beta code, which is available at:
https://multibit.org/releases

It is currently the 0.5.7beta version.
I doubt the UI will change much between now and when it is released so you can try it out now if you want to. Make sure your wallets are backed up.

It is 'just' a matter of finishing the code off, getting it into bitcoinj, building it into MultiBit, doing release candidate testing and putting it on the website. (Note the quotes on the 'just'!)

+ Trezor support

Very nice plan!
I am missing multi-signature transactions on your list, though. Any plans to support these in bitcoinj or MultiBit?

I haven't seen any discussion of it recently I must admit freemoney. I think this is just because there is quite a bit going on at the moment so no-one has the spare capacity to look at it.

I do find it kind-of ironic that bitcoinj, electrum, bitcoin-qt, armory, et'all have all spent so much time on their own wallets.
Then everyone is going to need to support the common HD Wallet format in the future to be relevant.

But yes.  HD Wallets are very cool.

Even in OT land we have been talking about supporting them.

One off NP-Hard.

I have a btc adress with very many (thousands) of small transactions. When i add it to multibit wallet and try to reset blockchain multibit client begins to load transactions but after some dozens - hangs - stops responding. Only thing i can do - forcedly close javaw.exe and start multibit again. But after repeating this many times after full syncing i discover that some transactions are missing and the balance of the wallet differs from what i see on blockchain.

Can this be corrected?

Hi starik69,

What version are you using ?
I recently tidied up the refresh of the transactions page so if you are on an older version it would be worth upgrading to the latest release on the website and trying the reset again. Take a copy of your wallet and the file multibit.blockchain in your user data area case it makes no difference. then you can roll back the change by:
1) shutting down MultiBit
2) putting back the old wallet and multibit.blockchain files
3) starting up MultiBit

That looks a bit like Google Drive (previously their Google docs offering).

The main thing with localising is the phrases management. Crowdin is not perfect but it is pretty good (especially for the price!)

Qikpad looks pretty useful if you want to quickly work together on a doc with someone.

I think I found a possible glitch in the 0.5.7beta client, but I'm not 100% sure: I can't seem to change the transaction fee below the default setting (0.001, I believe). Whenever I change the fee and apply the changes it reloads the preferences page and the fee goes back to the default. This only happens when trying to set it lower. I wasn't sure if this was a glitch or intentional.

On a side note: any update on when the official client release will have the encryption? Seems to work great on the beta Smiley

Sounds like a bug - you should be able to set it to 0.0001 and even if you set to something else it should give you a message. I will have a look.

Good to hear the encryption is working ok for you.
Can't really give an update on when it will be out - still working through review comments. (these are to make the code better and more usable for other people).

I uninstalled and re-downloaded the client and I can now set it to 0.0001, but setting it lower still doesn't give me a message or anything. Strange. o.O

I gotcha. I'll keep up with this thread for further updates then Wink
