I have been collating MultiBit bug reports and putting them into github.

https://github.com/jim618/multibit/issues?sort=created&direction=desc&state=open

I will work on these two first:

#3: Zero confirmation transactions not being subsequently confirmed
#6: Windows installer cannot install into C:/Program Files for Win7 / Vista

There is a new release of MultiBit at:

http://multibit.org


Version 0.2.0beta3
This is mainly a bugfix release.

Enhancements
+  Added Linux shortcuts
+  Added 'Create Bulk Addresses' for MultiBitMerchant (add showMerchantMenu=true into multibit.properties)

Bug fixes
+  Fixed issue #6 - Windows installer cannot install into C:/Program Files.


I plan to do about a beta every week up until Christmas with bug fixes and minor improvements.   I will start the next tranche of new development in the New Year.

I have fixed the bug:

Issue #3  Zero confirmation transactions not being subsequently confirmed.


I have copied the strategy used by Andreas in Android Bitcoin Wallet.

There is now a button "Reset blockchain and transactions' on the bottom right of the 'About MultiBit" screen.

If you press this you get a screen with an explanation and a single button "Reset blockchain and transactions'.   
Screenshot: http://multibit.org/postImages/resetTransactions.png

When you click the reset button it does the following:
1) Removes any transactions from the active wallet
2) Redownloads the blockchain from before the earliest transaction in the wallet.

It can take some time to redownload the blockchain but afterwards your wallet contents will reflect what is on the blockchain.
Note there is currently a bug in the percentage download figure when downloading but the block date is correct.   It is best just to let it chug away and catch up with the blockchain.

This fix will appear in the next beta which will probably be on Sunday or Monday.

2) Redownloads the blockchain from before the earliest transaction in the wallet.

Since this button will only affect the active wallet but the screenshot does not give a hint which wallet is the active one:

Can you add some additional information about the active wallet?
Or place the button in a screen with which intuitively implies which wallet will be affected?
Or a combination of both, say in a confirmation dialogue asking
'Do you want to reset the blockchain and transactions in wallet {1}'?

Would this also be a solution to import keys from another wallet?

Hi freemoney458,

I will add the wallet file and description that will be affected.   The wallet is shown in the combo box in the toolbar but clearly that is not enough.

Edit: this has now been added - http://multibit.org/postImages/resetTransactions.png


It is close to what is required for importing a private key, except that in this case I can look at the active wallet and see the earliest transaction.   Say it is 2 weeks ago.   I then only have to re-download 2 week's worth of blockchain.   For a general private key I do not know how far back in time to go (Imagine you have a private key from 2009 and want to import it).   It is certainly a step nearer though.

We are making a bit of a push on getting MultiBit translated into more languages.
We have these languages now:

English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Swedish, Russian

And have translators currently working on:
Dutch : done,
Hindi : done,
Thai


If you would like volunteer to translate MultiBit to your mother tongue please go to our translation website or let me know.

Our translation website is:
http://translate.multibit.org


We are notably missing:

Arabic, Chinese : done, Japanese, Korean

out of the top ten internet languages (http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats7.htm)

For a fluent speaker it takes an evening or two to translate all the terms.
Thanks

We now have a translation of MultiBit into Hindi.
Thanks to Kishor Kumar for doing this.

Here is a screenshot (quite visually striking - like the Chinese in the previous post)

Again, it will go into the next beta.

Would you consider adding ability to export/print the private keys?  I know there is an issue with importing but at least it would allow for a backup in case of data loss or corruption.

Yes - I think this is a good idea. Will put in on my list of items to implement.

As you say, it would make for an excellent failsafe backup.

A QR code you can print would be the best private key backup. You can then just put somewhere safe.

Or if you supported importing private keys from https://www.bitaddress.org users would not need to export as would already  have a paper based backup.

Yes printing is better than saving to a file for the ultimate backup. A file of private keys would be a magnet for thieves. Paper stored in a safe place is pretty unhackable. (assuming the printer spool file gets destroyed properly)

A QR code would work but would need the private key written as text as well just in case no scan solution was available.  Fiddly to type in but we would all do it for a large enough amount of bitcoin !

Bitaddress.org import support would be do-able for 'brand new' private keys or keys we know the age of. Just replay the blockchain the way we do in 'Reset transactions and blockchain'.

I think I will add a Tools menu and put this one in as the first one.

Any ETA on when we can import private keys? Is it being worked on, or is that further down the road?
