Hi Roland,

The wallet encryption is in the 0.5.9-SNAPSHOT version that is available at:
https://multibit.org/releases

The rough timeline for general release is:

+ at the moment people on the bitcoinj mailing list are testing it. I will fix any bugs they raise but generally not be adding new code for a while - this is called 'washup'. This will probably be a week or so.
+ once we are confident that the quality is ok I will then create a release candidate with the bug fixes (and move it to use the bitcoinj 0.8 that Mike has just announced). This is then retested by the bitcoinj mailing list and anyone else interested. That will probably be another week.

After that if there are no problems it will go on multibit.org as the general download.

Whilst people are testing it I will probably work on the help and the new website we are working on. You don't want to be adding new code (other than bug fixes) whilst people are testing it as it invalidates their test work.

Hi Jim,

a general usage question: how long does it take before payments show up in the wallet? I was sent 3 small payments today, see http://blockchain.info/address/<snip>
There are over 40 confirmations for each, but nothing is showing up in my wallet, while other wallets at least show maturing payments etc.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I used the method here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=159437.0 which got the transactions in. Still quite annoying, hope you can fix that.

Ok , looking forward to the encrypted wallets in the latest version so that i can recommend it to the visitors of my website Smiley

p.s. any news on the bitcoin-merchant front ?

Greetz roland.

Hi Roland,

Yes I think everybody will be pleased when we get encrypted wallet support available to everyone.

Because of all the work on MultiBit and the ever increasing downloads we have not had time to work on anything else (other than a websote refresh which is being worked on currently). I cannot see that changing for the next few months.

Regards,

Jim

The Netherlands is regularly either at the top or number 2 of my list of 'downloads by country'.

The Dutch have been traders for 500 years so not surprising they are early adopters.

@jim

I am not sure someone did not post it already, but I'll give it a try.

In Transactions tab I have lots of transactions and I would like to suggest implementing a possibility to sort transactions by the address(somewhat like in official client I think). I have few addresses through which I receive BTC regularly. I hope this would help me get the better idea of the coin flow.

At the moment you can sort by any of the individual columns eg by Description but that isn't quite what you were asking.

This was a bug to do with parsing of the transaction fee when you have a locale that uses a ',' as the decimal separator.
It is fixed in release 0.5.9 (https://multibit.org/releases.html).

You can just set the transaction fee in the Preferences tab. Press 'Apply changes' to save the new amount.

The transaction fee goes to the miner who mines your transaction, not multibit.org.

I have the multibit client 0.4.23.  Backups good and private key in safe place.  I have only one bitcoin wallet on there.
I'd like to upgrade to the new wallet, but cannot seem to find specific upgrade instructions for windows anywhere.  Don't wanna mess up, 'cause I probably cannot fix up.  Kindly show me toward upgrade instructions, or I am a quick study - and just tell me how you've upgraded.
Thanks.

Hi CalicoChris,

The MultiBit code is installed/ stored separately to where your wallets are stored.
(Unless you did something fancy when you installed it).

For windows you should be able to simply install the new version of Multibit using the installer and accept the defaults.
Then when you open the new version your wallet will be there.

The installation instructions are are: https://multibit.org/help.html

0.5.9 win8 64bit

Got this on installation. Seems to have worked nonetheless. Did not bother to uninstall 0.5.8 before :]

Registry Key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\bitcoin could not be opened.
Operating system error number: 5
Operating system error text: Access denied

edit: thanks for the great work

edit2: is it normal that there are no copy/paste popup menus? That is a little odd.

edit3: gox prices do not show. the other exchanges work fine.

There is a bit more to do on the Windows front yes.
I am waiting for a 'identity checked' code signing certificate that means I can sign the binaries (Microsoft authenticode). This should get rid of some of the security related messages on install.

(I'll probably be asking for testers for that as I on'y have an ancient Windows XP VM to test with).


RE: the popup menus. The only popup menu is in the Transactions tab and I plan to remove that and put it as a button (in the next round of UI work). This is mainly because of tablets - for a touch sensitive screen 'right clicks' have effectively disappeared.

The Mt Gox ticker has been unreliable in the last few days yes - I think this is because of the DDOS they have been suffering from. The main reason to have alternate exchanges available was to avoid them being a single point of failure. I normally use OpenExchangeRates now, though it is only updated hourly.

@bitcoinspot.nl : Thanks for the recommendations !

We have a new website in the works (available most of the time at http://test.multibit.org ) which will have more information for the general user.

I just tried to download 0.5.9 and it was rejected by Norton anti virus.
The threat was named  "WS.reputation.1"

Anybody else encountered this issue?

A virus named like "WS.reputation.1" just means that it doesn't actually match against a database of known viruses, but the binary triggered some heuristic and not many people have it installed. That makes sense - it's probably detected the fact that it's unsigned and very new. Once Jim starts signing it and more people are running MultiBit on Windows, that kind of thing should go away.
