What is the status with respect to testing under MacOS?  Should I build from source, and manage bitcoind/bitcoin-qt myself?


I ran into more problems with OSX than expected.  I decided to start over from scratch, but decided I should focus on getting the Linux & Windows stuff out the door before then.  With about 20k downloads per month for Windows, I decided the usability upgrades I have need to be top priority.  I think I'm finally almost there.  Probably tonight or tomorrow I'll take another shot at the OSX build.  I promise it's coming!

Don't rush the OSX for my sake - I am happy with the version I "brewed" a month ago or so - my only incentive for changing something that works well would be to help with testing.

Did you really mean to post that very relevant picture in this thread?  And if you think this is a ride, try a real crash!  The price "crashed" down to what it was four days ago.  How dramatic!   Wink

Indeed.  I have suspected for a while that the run-up was a bubble, though I expected it to persist a bit longer.  All this media attention came in only last week, and thought there was going to be another couple weeks of people pouring into the system.  Maybe there still will be.  But I'm not afraid of the price "reverting to the mean", only the ensuing media attention which going to cast it into a poor light.  And it's partly justified -- people are going mental, and panicking, and our poor little infrastructure can't handle it!

For reference... 2 months ago I was at about 2,000 downloads/month.  Now I've gotten 2,000 downloads in the last 2-4 days!  I'm also getting a lot more emails and postings about it.  Obvioulsy no one else can respond to the emails, but I request some help responding to postings in the Armory subforum.  I'm going to try to resist the urge to respond to these things immediately, and give others a chance to help me, first.  I'm going to focus on coding Smiley

I don't think the Armory download volume is/was experiencing a bubble, since mostly only people who have done thorough research about bitcoin would be interested in it(many of the long-time bitcoiners I know still have no idea about the advantages of cold storage), it's a sign of growth of educated bitcoin userbase.

I think that was the case before they changed bitcoin.org.  Now, it is parallel to Bitcoin-Qt instead of an alternative you have to go hunting for.  Granted, the description says "advanced", but I'm sure lots of people want to try it out anyway...

There's just no other way to describe a 5x-8x increase in volume (bitcoin.org getting 5x-10x more volume and them featuring Armory next to Bitcoin-Qt).  It's pretty awesome, but it makes these usability issues all the more pressing!

Actually, it's already quite surprising that so many people want to run their own clients, rather than relying on third-party services.

For anyone interested in the OSX build, here's my first shot at it:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=175777.0

Qt definitely behaves differently on OSX, requiring some OSX-specific tweaks to the layouts, but it's very usable!

etotheipi, do you have an update on the offline wallet system, where Armory in offline mode is running on an offline device, connected to a PC via a USB-to-serial adapter, and the Armory running in online mode on the PC is able to send transactions to the offline device for signing?

I really want to get this up and running, so I'm interested in hearing how far you are with this, and if there's anything I can do to help.

You can use the offline_server branch of my fork. It's based on etotheipi's latest testing branch.

You'll have to disable the serial TTY on the Pi. I used this guide. Then compile Armory for the Pi. I used this guide. Finally plug the Pi into your computer (it can be powered by the serial cable), transfer the compiled files (from a USB drive, not over the serial cable!) and run extras/offline_serial_server.py (for me it's /dev/ttyAMA0 and baud rate 115200).

For your online computer, you'll have to be in advanced or expert mode, then you can set the device and baud rate in the settings dialog. Once that is complete, you should see the status change to connected in the bottom right. Now, on the dialog from which you can save an offline transaction, you can also transmit it to the offline device. You'll be prompted for the wallet passphrase if your wallet is encrypted. Enter it on the Pi's keyboard. Once the Pi transmits the signed transaction back to your computer, it will automatically advance to the Broadcast dialog.

It should be pretty easy to use, but I created it so maybe that's just me. Cheesy

That's awesome! Thanks for coding and releasing this. I hope this is merged into mainline Armory at some point.

I'm planning on starting with the old school method of transferring transactions with a USB stick, and, when I'm comfortable with this, move on to this method.

Question!

Has anyone ever noticed a difference between the Win64 and Windows_all versions of Armory, on 64-bit Windows?  I just noticed on my googlecode download page that 99.9% of downloads are for the win32 version.  And I know more than 0.1% of users are using 64-bit!  

I ask, because it's kind of a pain to keep producing both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the software.  If I could reduce it to just one Windows version, that would dramatically reduce the amount of work I have to do for a release!    Perhaps this proves that the 32-bit version is interchangeable with the 64-bit version and I can ditch it...

Thoughts/experiences?

win32 works on win64 too therefore it would be better to just build for win32?!

Is there anything in Armory that takes advantage of the 64bit arch, for performance reasons for example?
If the answer is no, 32bits only releases are enough I would say.

Well, I'll be damned.  I actually linked both the Win64 and Windows_all versions to the Windows_all download link.  That explains a lot!

I think, for now, I will only post the Windows_all version, and link users to the 64-bit version if they have difficulties.  

OH!  I bet this is the reinstall problem so many people had!  Armory can't start after a fresh install:  because they thought they had the 64-bit version installed previously, and installed the new 64-bit version.  But they actually had the 32-bit version installed.  It doesn't change the fact that the installer should do a full overwrite anyway, but it does make more sense, now.

Apparently you have a non-numeric port number in your bitcoin.conf file?  Did you create that file yourself?  What's the port number?

Gah!  I missed something!  I fixed the unicode path names, but not if your default datetime format has unicode characters.  That's unfortunate.  You can manually modify qtdefines.py:215 to say "unicode(text)" instead of "str(text)".  I know that doesn't solve it for everyone else...

That's also what happens when I don't have a lot of people testing.  I have conceded that certain bugs will only be found after major releases, and that there will be a v0.XX.1 that will have to happen 1-2 weeks later.  Oh well, there's no real way around it (I don't blame people for being hesitant about testing new versions with their primary wallet).
