As the week ends, let's take a moment to look back at what we've achieved in the past few days and see what we've got to look forward to in the week to come.

Particl Desktop Update πŸ–₯️

This week's desktop-related work has been focused on making progress with the updates for Particl Desktop 3.3.3, this time pivoting towards progressing on the various feature updates planned for it.

In the interest of pushing updates more quickly, and as the array of dependency updates are rather time-consuming due to the accrued development debts of the past few months, we may opt to push out Particl Desktop 3.3.3 with most of the updates and fixes mentioned above included, and push a subsequent update (i.e., 3.3.4) addressing the remaining larger dependency updates.

  • Update Particl Desktop-related dependencies and modules. (partly completed, focus shifted to items listed below)
  • Diagnose and fix a problem with how market identities behave. (priority)
  • Diagnose and fix an issue with the editing of Seller Templates. (priority)
  • Tie marketplace content moderation voting threshold to circulating supply.
  • Improve proxy connections (better Tor functionality, add i2p, etc).
  • Allow copy-pasting via right-clicking.
  • Allow for transactions to be abandoned on PD before they are confirmed.
  • Default display of chat messages to newest message receive.

BasicSwap πŸ“ˆ

Decred Coming to BasicSwap DEX βœ…

We are happy to announce that Decred, a pioneering cryptocurrency in atomic swap technology, will be integrated into BasicSwap in the coming weeks.

Indeed, the Decred community has voted to support the team in coding the integration of Decred into the DEX, ensuring its inclusion and access to all current and future features, releases, and related products or services on BasicSwap.

Consequently, we've begun work on the integration last weekend. Although Decred uses a UTXO codebase, its components are coded in Go, which requires the development of Go compatibility within certain components of the DEX. While this requires additional effort, it should not present a major obstacle and are confident that it will be integrated and ready for testing within the next few weeks.

Wownero Coming to BasicSwap DEX βœ…

Community member ofrnxmr has recently fundraised via both the Wownero and Particl communities to code an integration for Wownero, the Monero-derived memecoin.

While a couple of normal roadblocks have been encountered, steady progress is being made and we should soon see this new coin make its way onto the DEX. We are ready to review and merge the integration once ready.

You can follow ofrnxmr on Twitter for updates regarding progress on that matter.

User Interface Β πŸ–₯️

While a few things have diverted our attention from focusing exclusively on the GUI this week, we have continued work on the user interface, focusing on the New Offers page and still pushing changes to the Wallets and individual Coin Wallet pages, but also adding the required assets to prepare for Decred's integration.

Keep an eye out for updates being pushed to the dev branch on Github, and as always, if you would like to test these changes before they make it into the master branch, you can change your active BasicSwap branch to the dev branch (using git checkout dev) and updating BasicSwap as you would typically do for a regular update.

Installation Wizard V2 (Windows) Updates πŸ§™β€β™‚οΈ

We're also preparing an update to the Windows installer based on a variety of feedback and bug reports received from the community. The update is expected to go live shortly.
