Hi All,

I've recently been playing with the Electrum Wallet. Initially I downloaded the executable, but later I became interested in editing and augmenting the wallet so cloned the git repo and compiled (from here: https://github.com/spesmilo/electrum).

Both methods have worked, but I have noticed slight differences. For example, in the version I compiled myself there are two additional tabs: 'Addresses' and 'Invoices', and Bitcoins are listed in mBTC rather than BTC (which lead me to a brief moment of thinking I was rich). My question is: has anyone else noticed this, or can explain why it is the case? The obvious answer is that the code that was put in the executable was slightly different, but both versions I am using are 1.9.8.

It would be nice to make a contribution to the project, and I am keen to be using the correct version & repo. So any clarification would be much appreciated.

The repo is currently under active development for the 2.0 release.  The version number has not yet been updated, however the code has had significant changes recently.  Everything should be backwards compatible so that if you use an old wallet, it will still work, however, I'm not sure about the other way around.  Just make sure you back up your seed, and if anything goes wrong, you can restore on the 1.9.8 release version.

As for mBTC vs BTC, it is a configurable option in the preferences, so you can use whichever you prefer.  The new tabs are an attempt to make the wallet easier to use based on feedback of confused users.
