Bitshares GUI release 2.0.160514

in #bitshares5 years ago

New features and bug fixes summary

After rolling out the trollbox last week a few issues were discovered: a memory leak and some CPU issues, and lots of people requested a chat history. This release partially addresses those concerns, but CPU usage appears to remain quite high in some cases. If you find that the CPU usage is too high, you may disable the chat completely by going to the settings.

Two bugs that caused the GUI to freeze have also been fixed, in the settings and in the blocktrades tab of deposits/withdrawals.

The main features of this release are:

  1. OPEN.DAO added to featured markets
  2. Trollbox p2p chat history
  3. Trollbox dockable to the right side
  4. Deposit/Withdraw organised in Gateway/Bridge views
  5. Better separation of volume and price data in the price chart

OPEN.DAO

You may now easily create and trade DAO tokens using the Openledger asset OPEN.DAO. OPEN.DAO tokens can be withdrawn to an Ethereum address once the DAO has launched. Until then, Bitshares/Openledger is the only place where you can not only create but also trade your DAO tokens!

Chat history

Chat history has been added by allowing newly connected clients to ask other clients for their current chat history. If a peer has some chat history, that history is requested and sent as a simple message over the p2p connection.

Docking the trollbox

By clicking on the pin icon you can now dock the trollbox to the right side permanently, giving you more vertical space for messages.

Deposit/Withdrawal refactor

Deposits and withdrawals have been further organised into separate views for Gateways, Bridges or Fiat. This should make it easier to find what you're looking for when making a deposit or withdrawal.

Great work! Looks like the online wallet is updated too..
https://bitshares.openledger.info

Yep it's updated, and https://bitshares.org/wallet/ has also been updated.

What about windows version ?

I don't have the means to make a Windows version myself, but I've asked emfrias from Blocktrades to prepare it, hopefully it'll come sometime this weekend.

Awesome work svk! :)

Great work. One minor suggestion, shouldn't Openledger be the 1st choice in deposit/withdraw since this is the OL wallet?

Yea I can agree to that, on bitshares.openledger.info anyway, I'll see if i can squeeze that in for the next release.

Good to see!
