I released 1.7.3 source packages.
Binaries for win and mac will be available soon.
* Classic GUI can display amounts in mBTC
* The status bar has an account selector (visible if you have imported keys)
* Changed the way the portable flag uses without supplying a -w argument
* Classic GUI asks users to enter their seed on wallet creation
Here are some 1.7.3 specific bug reports (I have to revert back to 1.7.2 because there are too many regressions in 1.7.3):
I want to share some test results: I discovered the following bugs up to now, all are specific to 1.7.3 (i.e. works flawlessly in 1.7.2):(1)
In the default GUI, when using the new account selector in the "receive" tab, the "Addresses" column collapses in width to a very narrow width - I have to drag the column width back to normal width with the mouse. 100% reproducible.(2)
Command line "electrum mktx": When i have "use change address" activated in the GUI (and then close the GUI to memorize the new setting, and then make the command line "mktx"), my change is still going to another address, not to one of my change addresses (I did not check if it also happens when initiating the transactions from the GUI). Again only in 1.7.3. In 1.7.2 it works as expected.(3)
Command line: The following command is executed correctly in 1.7.2, but not in 1.7.3:electrum mktx -w electrum_deseeded_online_wallet.dat -F 16u48JjWLvLX1qnWt1Dm9WvzYP84z1b47P 1KDF6wN6Um1LQDjFoi8vGjcLKph6RGfCfV 0.009
Background: the FROM address (-F switch) has a balance of 0.0097, and tx fee is 0.0001. the target address is one from my wallet.
The error message that I get is:
Error: unhashable type: 'list'
When I omit the FROM address (the "-F 1xxxxxx" field, bold letter above), it works also in 1.7.3. (4)
Sometimes I get errors when starting electrum in 1.7.3. After second try, it works. Only observed in 1.7.3, never in 1.7.2. Sporadic, but occured 3 to 4 times already this evening.
Hence, overall, version 1.7.3 seems to be pretty "buggy" at the moment.
My system is ubuntu 12.04 with "python 2.7.3 from Aug 1 2012, 05:16:07".
I used an own wallet file, not the default "electrum.dat", for all these trys, and this own wallet was a deseeded wallet, because I used it in the context of creating offline transactions (to be signed on an Offline PC).
