Is Anyone Working on the Wallet?

Recommended Posts

So I've noticed the MinCoin wallet/daemon is several versions behind the Litecoin software from which it was forked. It also appears no new commits have been added to the software in 2 months, and before that single commit it's been 9 months.

 

Now I'm seeing this error coming from the wallet, "Mandatory upgrade to Litecoin 0.8.6.1+. https://litecoin.org/upgrade". Which means:

 

* May not be applicable to MinCoin, and should just be ignored.

* Someone should change the error message to say "MinCoin" instead of "Litecoin".

* Is possibly a sign the software needs some critical fixes.

 

It's also not a good sign when the developers have disabled the Github issue tracker. It's a bit like hanging up a "Do Not Disturb" sign.

 

Little things like this really bring down the perceived value of MinCoin, at least among developers.

What MNC QT version are you running?

 

Technically I'm not using the QT version, as I'm running mincoin as a daemon on my web hosting server. I compiled from the sources on Github, which is linked from the main MinCoin website.

Try using this github repository instead. https://github.com/vipah/mincoin.git

It should report, "version" : 60500

That seems to have fixed things. Thanks!

 

We really need to get all these loose MNC pieces in order (ie. Wallet versions/repos, website, coin details (which were changed)... Having these things all over the place make it hard to use MNC.

 

As part of this new work to develop a new face of Mincoin, we should also to focus on consolidating and updating all MNC resources.
