We’re happy to announce the release of the Bitcoin Gold Wallet version 0.15.0.2!
We’ve added direct support for several systems, like ARM server and MacOS… even Raspberry Pi! Serious corporate developers are more interested in the ARM support, but let’s face it, everyone loves Pi. We’ll keep working to ensure that the official wallet is full-featured and available on as many platforms as possible.
This version includes several UI improvements plus multiple changes to disambiguate and reduce confusion. Some are minor (such as icon updates), but this one bears calling out:
The current version uses
bitcoingold.conf instead of
bitcoin.conf for configuration info at startup. If there is no
bitcoingold.conf at startup but there is a pre-existing
bitcoin.conf in the
Bitcoin Gold folder, it will be renamed
bitcoingold.conf and used.
Most users upgrading from the previous version can simply shut down the old, install the new, and start it up.
