Speaking about version, I will use 0.4.1 as long as it works. Hundreds of transactions with it and still working fine. The Qt version is turned out to be crap.
agreed. still using 4.1.1 Cheesy

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

If there are things that the new GUI does poorly, please open issues on them: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues

There are many people willing to work on and maintain the QT interface. If there are objective weaknesses that are bugging you they will probably be fixed. (On matters of taste— well, no promises... Its no good making one user happy only to make another unhappy).

No one is maintaining the WX gui anymore.  No one is willing to do so. It's even a pain to build.

It wastes space, are difficult to use (farther mouse travel etc.) looks unintuitive and childish. There is no fix that will make Qt version as good as VX.

FYI... Armory switched over 15 minutes early for some reason.  But it works now.  If there's any problems, just restart... stuff Smiley

Fwiw, I wouldn't use a GUI that used wxWidgets. Love the Qt version though. Guess everyone has their preferences.

The QT-based interface is an improvement over the previous one.  It also has the huge advantage of having people willing and able to maintain and improve it.  I do have a few pet peeves and I think it could be further improved in some areas, but that's not a problem, it's an opportunity. Smiley

My 0.4.1.1 got stuck, and I cannot get past this block: http://vvcap.net/db/2IR75OWyJj5AsUW7eo_i.htp . Is that end of life for non-qt client?

My slightly older client was getting stuck too- it is because of the new P2SH transactions being included in blocks. I'm not sure if this is the case for you, but it would be very wise to upgrade regardless- the old clients are not receiving small and medium bug fixes. Surly soon they won't receive large bug fixes either.
