Particl Desktop 3.1.3 is now available to download! It fixes a major issue that led to market receiving keys being removed from core under some circumstances.

While this did not affect the publishing of listings for sellers, this bug prevented listings from being properly received and decrypted by other network peers. And so, even though sellers were publishing listings on the marketplace, other users couldn't see them.

Although this issue was mostly fixed in the previous Particl Desktop 3.1.2 release, the patch did not cater to already-existing markets, including the Open Market. This patch resolves the issue as a whole.

For the reasons mentioned above, this update is critical for using Particl Marketplace. We highly recommend updating your client!

Note: After starting Particl Desktop, it may be helpful to use the Market module > Market Settings menu option > "Force Scan for Marketplace Messages" button once to re-populate any missing listings for these previously affected markets.

List of Changes

Marketplace App

While a bug affecting markets and their listings was fixed in v3.1.2, the fix did not correctly patch the affected markets so that they may continue receiving listings correctly again. This has now been updated, and ensures that affected markets are fully functional once again.
