Electrum-GRS 4.0.7 released
« on: December 22, 2020, 08:51:19 pm »

Electrum-grs is a lightweight "thin client" groestlcoin wallet Windows, MacOS and Linux based on a client-server protocol. Its main advantages over the original Groestlcoin client include support for multi-signature wallets and not requiring the download of the entire block chain.

If you are an ordinary user of Groestlcoin and simply want the convenience of a web wallet with the security of a real application and support for multi-signature, then Elecrum-GRS is the right choice for you.

Changelog Electrum-GRS 4.0.7
• PSBT: restore compatibility with Groestlcoin Core following CVE-2020-14199: we now allow a PSBT input to have both UTXO and WITNESS_UTXO. (PSBTs created since 4.0.2 already contained UTXO for segwit inputs).
• Hardware wallets: run all device communication on a dedicated thread.
• New feature: "Automated BIP39 recovery". When restoring from a BIP39 seed, add option to scan many known derivation paths for history, and show them to user to choose from.
• Show derivation path of keystores in Qt GUI Wallet>Information.
• Fix "signtransaction" RPC command.
• The tar.gz source dist now bundles, to help users getting libsecp256k1.
• New feature: "Cancel tx". The Qt/kivy GUI allows cancelling an unconfirmed RBF tx by double-spending its inputs to self.
• Windows binary:
   - fix some issues with QR scanning by building zbar ourselves.
   - when using setup exe, also install a debug binary.
• Fix .dmg binary hanging on recently released macOS 11 Big Sur.
• Lightning:
   - bugfix: during LN channel opening, if the client crashed at the wrong moment, the channel might not get fully persisted to disk, and would need manual console-tinkering to recover.
   - Lightning is enabled by default. Electrum-GRS will not connect to the Lightning Network until the user opens a channel.
   - smarter node recommendation (to open channels with).
• Fix 'Max' button issue for submarine swaps button.
• Fix 'Max' button in kivy.
• Various fixes for Kivy/Android install wizard.
• Kivy: fix open channel with 'max' amount.
• Dependencies (as part of adapting to new dnspython):
   - pyaes is no longer needed.
   - python-ecdsa is no longer needed at all.
   - cryptography is now required (min 2.6), the user can no longer choose between cryptography and pycryptodomex.

• Encrypted wallet - the file that contains your groestlcoins is protected with a password. You are protected from thieves.
• Deterministic key generation - If you lose your wallet, you can recover it from its seed. You are protected from your own mistakes.
• Instant on - the client does not download the blockchain, it requests that information from a server. No delays, always up-to-date.
• Freedom and Privacy - The server does not store user accounts. You are not tied to a particular server, and the server does not need to know you.
• No scripts - Electrum-GRS does not download any script. A compromised server cannot send you arbitrary code and steal your groestlcoins.
• No single point of failure - The server code is open source, anyone can run a server.
• Transactions are signed locally - Your private keys are not shared with the server. You do not have to trust the server with your money.
• Firewall friendly - The client does not need to open a port, it simply polls the server for updates.
• Free software - Gnu GPL v3. Anyone can audit the code.
• Written in Python - The code is short, and easy to review.
• User Friendly - Support for Groestlcoin URIs, signed URIs and Groestlcoin aliases
• No Lock-In - You can export your private keys and use them in other groestlcoin clients.
• No Downtimes - Electrum-GRS servers are decentralized and redundant. Your wallet is never down.
• Proof Checking - Electrum-GRS Wallet verifies all the transactions in your history using SPV.
• Cold Storage - Keep your private keys offline, and go online with a watching-only wallet. Sign transactions from a computer that is always offline. Broadcast them from a machine that does not have your keys.
• Multisign - Split the permission to spend your coins between several wallets using parallel BIP32 derivations and P2SH addresses ("2 of 2", "2 of 3"). Compact serialization format for unsigned or partially signed transactions, that includes the BIP32 master public key and derivation needed to sign inputs. Serialized transactions can be sent to cosigners or to cold storage using QR codes

This application is licensed under the GPL version 3. There is no warranty and no party shall be made liable to you for damages. If you lose coins due to this app, no compensation will be given. Use this app solely at your own risk.

Store your secret phrase somewhere safe!
The multi-signature and non native segwit addresses starts with a "3" and not with a "F".
Electrum-GRS creates an encrypted filename default_wallet instead of wallet.dat (like in Groestlcoin Core)
• Location Windows: Navigate to C:\Users\USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Electrum-grs\wallets (or open windows explorer and enter %appdata%\Electrum-grs\wallets) and back up your default_wallet file by making a copy of it and moving it to a secure location.
• Location Mac: Navigate to ~/Library/Application Support/Electrum-grs/wallets and back up your default_wallet file by making a copy of it and moving it to a secure location.
