Release 2.9 – Independence (July 27th, 2017)

  • Multiple Chain Validation: Electrum will download and validate block headers sent by servers that may follow different branches of a fork in the Bitcoin blockchain. Instead of a linear sequence, block headers are organized in a tree structure. Branching points are located efficiently using binary search. The purpose of MCV is to detect and handle blockchain forks that are invisible to the classical SPV model.
  • The desired branch of a blockchain fork can be selected using the network dialog. Branches are identified by the hash and height of the diverging block. Coin splitting is possible using RBF transaction (a tutorial will be added).
  • Multibit support: If the user enters a BIP39 seed (or uses a hardware wallet), the full derivation path is configurable in the install wizard.
  • Option to send only confirmed coins
  • Qt GUI:
    • Network dialog uses tabs and gets updated by network events.
    • The gui tabs use icons
  • Kivy GUI:
    • separation between network dialog and wallet settings dialog.
    • option for manual server entry
    • proxy configuration
  • Daemon: The wallet password can be passed as parameter to the JSONRPC API.
  • Various other bugfixes and improvements.
