Hello,

I have just tested the client and I think it's pretty good!


Two quick ones:

- a simple function to remove sending addresses from the list would be cool
- the header "Your sending addresses" can be misleading in making users think they are addresses of their own they are sending from. How about a header that reads "Pick an address to send bitcoins to" to avoid misunderstandings?


Cheers.

Both good suggestions.

I am going to add in some "delete" options into the UI pretty soon.

Hi Jim,

I just noted a minor bug in the latest release (maybe it was also present in earlier versions):

- After pressing 'Undo last changes' in the 'Preferences' screen, all the tooltips appear very small and without any text.

The bug appeared with the MacOS version. I was able to reproduce it several times.

I thought you would like a sneak preview of the new MultiBit user interface:




There is still a ton of work to do so I will skip the normal weekly builds and crack on with it.

Looks good!

I looked at the specs for the armory bitcoin-client, pretty impressive. Do you see any stuff that you yourself will want to implement in the future in multibit ?

Hi bitcoinspot.nl,

Thanks! Armory is a great client and I look forward to seeing it develop.
At the moment I am working to complete the 0.3.x list in the wiki here:
https://github.com/jim618/multibit/wiki

The main priority is to add encrypted wallets.

After that there are a lot of useful things that could be added (and for which Mike has added support in bitcoinj already). It is 'only' a matter of coding it up, testing it and documenting it !

I would rather under promise and over deliver so further out than the current plan I have to be vague on as it depends on time and available manpower (ie who can help).

Some of the possibilities to add are:
+ make a fully portable version compatible with http://PortableApps.com
+ bitcoinj already supports watch-only wallets so add them.
+ bitcoinj plans to add deterministic wallets so once that is done could add them.
+ XChange can pull out the MtGox orderbook etc and are working on other exchanges so could add a whole trading aspect to Multibit.

I do not think I will be running out of possible things to add just yet. :-)

It is a big list but you just work through it steadily.

When I want a break I just take a few days off and, oh, post some photos to http://swanwatch.net. :-)

wow, you are quite the swan-fanatic.
At my parents house we used to have out own pet-swans in the winter, they would literally wait for me at the busstop in the evening, follow me home (about 250 meters) and then quickly get in the water to wait for the bread they knew the would be getting Smiley
Adorable... but not pettable.

Any change you'll be going to the bitcoin convention in london later this year ?

btw: i have a technical question.
I Installed the latest version of the multibit client in a new directory and copied multibit.properties, multibit.keychain and my wallet.wallet and wallet.info files to this dir. when i start the client it seems to work fine, but the strange thing is that it does not list my latest transactions.

Am i doing something wrong?

R.

Hi bitcoinspot.nl,

That is quite a swan tale - you are right they are never pettable.

You are doing the right thing moving the multibit.properties, blockchain and your wallet into the same directory as the multibit.exe/ multibit.jar.   Presumably you are running it 'portable'.

I think what you are seeing is that the wallet was not "hooked up" to the blockchain for a while and it has missed some blocks.
If you go into "Tools | Reset blockchain and transactions" and run it it should replay the blockchain and you should see whatever transactions are on the blockchain.   If you have a wallet with old transactions in it can take a few minutes to run - just let it replay the whole blockchain from your wallet creation.

I will be fixing this in the next chunk of "backend" work by having the wallets know the last block they saw and resync if they (for whatever reason) have missed any so this behaviour should disappear.

Yes - I plan to go to the London convention but I probably won't volunteer for any talks (it took Gary and I at least a week each to prep for the last one.   Far too much for a ten minute talk!   :-) )   I presume from you asking that you were planning to go so that will be good to meet up.

There is now an improved look on the panels such as "Export private keys", "Preferences" etc:



You can see that you can now have multiple tabs open so you can flick between whatever you are working on.  The "Send", "Request" and "Transactions" tabs are always present but the others you just open and close at will.

You can also see I have introduced a 'twisty' into the wallet's graphical representation so that you can get more detail on demand.

Also, it is quite a subtle feature but the component separating the wallets from the "rest of things" is now movable.   If you like long descriptions on your wallets you can move it to the right to see your full text

Cool look jim!

Though I do think that the wallet list is a bit busy... maybe put some stronger horizontal emphases between the elements?

One off NP-Hard.

Hi da2ce7 - yes agreed the wallet panel needs more work.

The wallet detail panel especially is a bit 'young' yet'.
I expect it to gradually get more refined and its contents will probably change over time.
It is a "general purpose space" for the details of the wallet.


When we start integrating the XChange code and start hooking up to exchanges there will be another tab next to "Wallets" called "Exchanges" and then rather than a list of wallets (and their details) there will be a list of your exchange connections/ accounts with THEIR details in the call out.   I can just recycle the layout code.

P.S.   I am looking for a better iconset for MultiBit in this UI refresh.
The current icons look a bit adhoc and it would be nice to clean them up.

Anyone know of a nice clean open source iconset I could look at ?


I am using 16x16 pixels but could go up to 20x20 or (maybe) 24x24.

Hi k,
Thanks for your suggestion.

In the end I have gone with the Silk icons at famfamfam.com
Used in Eclipse and no doubt others.
