I get the following error in windows:

Code:
C:\Electrum-1.3>python electrum
  File "electrum", line 204
    except SystemExit, e:
                     ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Anyone?

you are probably using python3.
try with python2.

Ok not sure if I'm doing something wrong but I did get it to work.
I needed to use python2 like you mentioned. But I also needed to download ecdsa, slowaes and setuptools as dependencies.
Looks good!

On a different note, I'm not sure if this has been covered elsewhere, but Electrum 1.01 (which I was using this morning before I saw the new release) was not listing new transactions. I had a few transactions last night that didn't show up in 1.01 (all had 80+ confirmations) until I changed the server to ecdsa.org (all the other servers allowed synchronization but didn't display the latest transactions). Same thing in Electrum for Android. The transactions that occurred last night are not showing up, even though it says it's synchronized. I'd try ecdsa.org to see if that fixes it too but it doesn't seem to want to let me use that server.

Edit:
Switched to ecdsa.org on e4a and now everything is good.

yes, that was probably a server problem

I'm using 1.3; all transactions show up as pending, even those done months ago.  The list is not sorted, probably for the same reason.

Any ideas?  Only me?

it is because they need to be verified. just wait a bit

I tried out Electrum and I'm quite impressed with it. Light, simple to use deterministic wallet that doesn't need to download the whole blockchain to spend from it - that's really great!

Is there a simple way to dynamically generate deterministic addresses for Electrum on the server side without risk of compromising private keys (so that I could receive bitcoins on my desktop without synchronization of addresses)?

As I said they are months old!  The other electrum (0.61) has them all confirmed.  There are 100s of transactions.  What causes this?

the old version did trust the server about confirmations.
The new version verifies that all your transactions are included in the blockchain.
The verification should only take a few minutes; if it is longer than that you have a problem.

yes, there is a script that does that. see "merchant.py" in the scripts directory.
(note that the merchant script included in the 1.3 package does not work; you need to pull the recent git)
here is the relevant thread : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=117199.0

It took about 15-20 minutes; all are now confirmed.  However every date is 1970-01-01 09:00.  Is that just me?

Restarting the client fixes that.

I just released a new version (1.4)

There are no new user-visible features in this release; the point is to upgrade the communication protocol.
This upgrade is needed in order to use new servers that do not use Abe.
On a side note, the merchant.py script included in this version has been fixed and works.
