Bytecoin 1.0.4 released

Postby ullo » Wed May 27, 2015 4:15 pm

Today, on 27 of May, the Bytecoin team has updated Bytecoin to version 1.0.4. The main part of the update is the Bytecoin RPC Wallet that substantially improves operation of third party applications and services in the Bytecoin network via RPC.

Thanks to RPC Wallet the merchandisers can easily connect their shops to the Bytecoin network and start automatically accepting payments. This service will also boost performance and simplify connecting exchanges and other third party services.

Main features of Bytecoin RPC Wallet:

  • Much attention has been paid to Wallet efficiency. Bytecoin RPC Wallet requires small amount of RAM for operation.
  • Being cross-platform, RPC Wallet can run as a daemon (Linux/OS X) and as a service (Windows).
  • RPC Wallet is capable of processing 3 times the amount of transactions per second (tps) compared to our previous solution, the RPC Simplewallet. The total amount of tps is now 60.
  • RPC Wallet supports approximately 10,000 remote connections. It greatly simplifies connection management for 3rd party applications.
  • Bytecoin RPC Wallet provides you high-level security. It is impossible to get access to Wallet’s private keys via RPC.
  • Developer-friendly and minimalistic interface allows for flexible setting any required functions via RPC-requests.
  • RPC Wallet can start up an internal node of the network, or it can use external node in case you need to save resources.
The Bytecoin RPC Wallet is more flexible and functional than Simplewallet RPC interface, superceding it. Therefore, Simplewallet RPC interface will be deprecated later on.

The Bytecoin release 1.0.4 contains refactored and optimized daemon. It enhances code modularity and allows us to tremendously increase software test coverage. The team has introduced a new multi-threading library that makes daemon behavior more predictable. It will be released as a stand-alone project later on. Moreover, we have improved console logging.

GUI Wallet has also been updated. Now it supports selection of color themes. It is also capable of flexible connection to remote daemon or start an in-process node.
