sorry for the problems with the 0.61 package.
I made the Electrum webpage link to version 0.60 until this is resolved.

in the meantime, please use git if you want to test version 0.61

In ver 059b I was able to access my wallet on a Live-CD - a popup asked for the seeds and the wallet came up.
But in 061 I get error:
~$ electrum
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File “/usr/local/bin/electrum”, line 148, in <module>
    gui = gui.ElectrumGui(wallet)
  File “/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/electrum/gui_lite.py”, line 36, in __init__
    with open(“data/style.css”) as style_file:
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘data/style.css’

I realize that the download probably was for 060 . But same error.

 Just a follow-up and solution.

when one enters  'sudo pip install http://ecdsa.org/electrum/Electrum-latest.tar.gz'  , it downloads the latest ver 0.61 which gives all those errors.
so I just entered instead :

sudo pip install http://ecdsa.org/electrum/Electrum-0.59b.tar.gz

and no more errors occurred.

Thank you ThomasV  for holding on to previous versions!  This is an excellent piece

Erm.. all of sudden I can't connect to any electrum servers. It keeps saying

Not connected
poking
Not connected
poking
Not connected
poking
Not connected
poking
Not connected
poking
Not connected
poking
Not connected
poking
Not connected
poking

and does nothing  Huh.

At first I thought it was because of old client, but upgrading to .59 or .60 doesn't change anything  Undecided

Some errors for you:


I clicked into the "Enter a bitcoin address..." box, then clicked the "Receive" button:
Code:
RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Users/duncant/electrum/lib/gui_lite.py", line 344, in focusOutEvent
    if self.text() == "":
RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded while calling a Python object


I also encountered this error, but I'm having trouble replicating it:
Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Users/duncant/electrum/lib/gui_lite.py", line 244, in amount_input_changed
    amount = D(str(amount_text))
  File "/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/decimal.py", line 542, in __new__
    if isinstance(value, basestring):
RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded in __instancecheck__


(I'm on a mac, in case you couldn't tell by the pathnames in the tracebacks)

I figured out how to replicate that bottom error. In the lite gui, click on the ### EUR to change it to USD. Then click on the "... and amount" text box.

Any major changes in the new release (besides the lite gui)?

I'm very new to electrum but I like it a lot.  Like the mnemonic to restore your wallet  Cool  but doesn't this always depend on the electrum servers operating?  Why not make the electrum wallet into a p2p network with all the privet back up keys distributed among the wallets instead of a server.  If this takes up to much resource's for every wallet why not have a fee system set up of 0.0006 transactions fess so 0.0001 eaxtra and a private key recovery of 0.0006% fee of your holdings to be distributed amongst wallet network seed wallets.  I could be wrong about my idea I'm very new to electrum but with needing a dedicated server to back up your wallet wouldn't using a decentralised p2p network instead of depending on the servers be a better idea  Huh  Sorry if all of that just sounds like boulder-dash I'm new to electrum and just though depending on dedicated servers makes it vulnerable to attack and/or shutdown.

No. You can always generate private keys from the seed (the mnemonic), as long as you have the source code of the generation process.

No. You can always generate private keys from the seed (the mnemonic), as long as you have the source code of the generation process.

but that still depends on being able to download electrum no if you didn't save the source  Huh  If it does maybe make the wallet into some kind or encrypted p2p for downloading the wallet  So making electrum into a clone of the original wallet but instead of sharing the blockchain it shares the electrum wallet download.

If you have the client then you have the source. The possibility of it not being available online AND no one having a client anymore is practically zero. As for the rest of your post I don't understand what you're trying to say.

The rest of my post is about making the wallet act as a decentralised seed for downloading the client.  Or at least every (or some) wallets act as torrent seed on on I2PSnark - (http://www.ghacks.net/2007/06/06/anonymous-bittorrent-with-i2psnark/).  So the ability to obtain an electrum client is taken away from central servers.

How do you update it and ensure that all the versions are consistent? You can run your own server, too.
