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, focusing on the various items contained in the list below.

  • 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.

Remember that, 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.

BasicSwap πŸ“ˆ

Decred Integration βœ…

We've been working on integrating Decred into BasicSwap, making satisfying progress all throughout the week. Here is the relevant progress report in regards to that specific deliverable:

  • Encode and decode Decred addresses (completed)
  • Add Decred to basicswap-prepare setup script (in-progress)
  • Integrate Decred wallet functionality into DEX (in-progress)

User Interface Β πŸ–₯️

GUI v.3.0.0 Β· tecnovert/basicswap@360d291
Basic Atomic Swap Proof of Concept. Contribute to tecnovert/basicswap development by creating an account on GitHub.

A substantial update to BasicSwap's GUI has been pushed to the dev branch, tentatively tagged as v3.0.0. This update brings changes to several templates, including the order book page, Wallets and individual coin wallet pages, Settings, and more. It also introduces extensive code cleanup and general improvements.

While work continues on finalizing changes to pages like Create New Offer, bids, and offer pages, as well as features like improved modals, popups, alerts, and others, the current state on the dev branch represents the first iteration of the version 3 of the GUI.

Once the remaining tasks are complete, the dev branch will be merged, marking the official release of BasicSwap's GUI version 3.0.0.

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 (Windows) πŸ§™β€β™‚οΈ

Once most of the tasks regarding the 3.0.0 version of the GUI are wrapped up, we will prepare an update to the installation wizard on Windows, integrating bug fixes and improvements as suggested by the community.
