No problem FreeMoney.
The private key export/ import is pretty important so I am quite happy to check.

I suspect it is just that piuk has switched off the advanced functionality in the demo wallet just to keep things simple.

There is a new live release of MultiBit at:

http://multibit.org

Version 0.4.10

Enhancements:
+  Internationalisation: Czech and Bahasa indonesia has been translated 100%.

Scan of release checklist


Note that github.com (that hosts the installers) went down earlier today so if you get any 404s just wait a while and try again later.
It is only early morning on the US Pacific coast where the servers are so I imagine it is a "Monday morning : servers just went down" experience for the github.com staff.

Hi Jim,

I have been thinking a bit more about the export from MultiBit specifically into the blockchain info MyWallet.

MyWallet expects the private keys unencrypted, they need to be pasted into the browser input field. So no file upload is possible nor is it needed.
Currently I have to export the keys in MultiBit to an unencrypted file, view it with an editor and copy the contents to the clipboard to be finally able to import the keys into MyWallet.

I see a security vulnerability here, because I am forced to store the keys unencrypted although it would not be needed.
Moreover, there are a lot of steps to go through.

Could you add an option in the export keys panel to show the keys directly on screen or to copy them to the clipboard instead of storing them to a file?
Maybe this could also be useful in the import keys panel.

Would it also be possible to add a comment after each key which indicates to which address the key belongs?
This way I could selectively import keys for specific addresses into another wallet.

Hi freemoney,

Yes it would be possible to have a text area on both the import and export so that you can cut and paste between them.
It will have to be in the 'input file/data' section of the two screens.

Will add it onto my TODOs.

I am thinking of beefing up the export format to do exactly you ask and add:
+ bitcoin address of key
+ label
+ whether it is archived or not (when that functionality goes in)
+ provision for watch-only addresses (when that functionality goes in) which are in blockchain.info but MultiBit does not support yet but should.

That way when you import you get all the label details and you can cut and paste just the keys you are interested in.

Because the export format is shared between MultiBit and the Andreas Schildbach's Android Bitcoin wallet there is a bit of tweaking needed to maintain backwards compatibility.

Cheers.

Hello World,

The encrypted wallets are in the 0.5.x code only. This is still in beta and hence not on the multibit.org website.
There are installers you can download directly from:

https://github.com/jim618/multibit/downloads

It is not quite ready for general release yet. If you have a read through the readme.txt and make sure your wallets are backed up by exporting your private keys you should be fine. I have been using it with my real wallets for the last couple of weeks but at the moment I am advising people to use it just with small amounts (just as a precaution).

The help has been redone for almost every page so that should explain the new functionality. You can see the help in MultiBit using 'Help | Help Contents' or go here:
http://multibit.org/v0.5/help_contents.html

If you have any questions or spot ANYTHING unusual let me know.

Jim

Thank you for your quick answer ⬆
You can add MultiBit for downloading also here:

Hi World,

No problem.
I had a look at appbodega.com.

The thing is, every extra channel for sales means more uploading and work for me which is less programming time. A simple download link on multibit.org works pretty well and is minimal work. I do not need any billing or anything as it is all free.

Most of my referrals either come direct from google or the bitcoin.org clients page. They land on the index.html and the download links are right there.

My pageview stats are about a minute which means visitors read the index page, decide if they want it, download and they are done.

I will probably put MultiBit in the Mac App store mainly as I have to get it signed anyway for Mountain Lion's GateKeeper. 

Of course if it was commercial software I would get my sales and marketing team working on appbodega.com uploads straight away !

:-)

Hello!

I just downloaded and installed 0.4.10 to check translations and I have done some minor changes. But then I switch Multibit to Slovak language to compare and was shocked by this gem:


Maybe the slovak translator hates a lot Currency ticker to name it vulgarly - "pičovina s výmenným kurzom". Grin Grin Grin ROFL

Gods sent us a powerful tool - cryptography - to fight with those who are trying to exploit us. USE IT!!

Thanks for highlighting that tpantlik.

Of course I have to trust that the translations people provide are faithful to the original and in neutral language.
The intention of MultiBit is to make it as easy as possible to use bitcoin so any translation needs to be in as standard vocabulary as possible.   Lots of languages are used in several countries (e.g Spanish, Portuguese) and I know the translators go to great efforts to choose words that work in all countries.

If it is not fixed by the time of the next release I will have to remove Slovak as a language.

edit: I have changed the Slovak Currency Ticker text back to the English at translate.multibit.org for now.

correct translation of the words " Show Currency Ticker" is "Zobraziť kurzový lístok" and "Hide Currency Ticker" is "Skryť kurzový lístok"

thanks - I have added it into translate.multibit.org

It will have to wait until next week before I reissue the code as I don't have time this week.

Haha. It might be worth running translations you get via Google Translate in future to spot obviously bogus stuff. It correctly translates

pičovina s výmenným kurzom -> bullshit with exchange rates

Hi DanielVG,

Not at the moment no, but it us quite high up on my list of things to do.
I am thinking of putting a button on the transactions tab to export all the transaction details to a CSV file.

Here is the presentation that I did this morning at the London Conference:

"MultiBit - The Summer of 2012"

Open Office format: http://multibit.org/postImages/MultiBit%20talk.odp (1.9 MB)

Powerpoint format: http://multibit.org/postImages/MultiBit%20talk.ppt (2.0 MB)


The notes on each slide I more or less stuck to - including the outline of the demo on the "Demo" slide.


Anecdote: I checked the venue WiFi was OK as soon as I got into London - Friday night.
Then when I fired everything up 40 minutes before my talk start time the WiFi was non-existent. OMG. Fortunately I had my 3G modem with me and even inside the conference centre the network connection was good enough.

This is expected behaviour for low to mid budget conference wifi.  The number of devices just overwhelms it.

Glad it worked out with the 3G connection.  That's also what I was using for internet access during the conference.

Good plan to take your 3G modem to any conference by the sounds of it.
