Particl launched its new wallet version 2.3.2
By Inkarias - 2019-12-29
The new Particl Desktop 2.3.2 has been released on mainnet last week and brings a lot of improvements to the startup and shut down processes of Particl Desktop and introduces a few minor UI/UX tweaks. While this update does not introduce any new feature, it makes Particl Desktop more stable and should go a long way in eliminating a lot of issues some users get from time to time when launching the application. In order to “activate” the marketplace, investors will need to add a wallet named “Market” (any capitalization works). The marketplace is currently only available via the Particl Desktop on this wallet in beta version. This is a temporary requirement that will be modified as soon as possible by the Particl team.
New changes and minor fixes
Status messages are now displayed on the loading screen when starting up the application and switching between wallets. This should provide an indicator that the startup is proceeding, or that an error has occurred if something fails during startup. The application startup now also checks for a running daemon before validating local particl-core binaries or even checking for valid versions.
Testnet and mainnet versions of the application are now properly separated. This fixes reports of testnet installations overriding existing mainnet installs on some operating systems and ensures that future testnet versions can be installed alongside existing mainnet releases. This can ensure a complete facility for investors for smoothly upgrade when required without worrying about the different supports. Finally, the team also fixed an issue with cart items in marketplace not being displayed in some cases, requiring the user to clear the cart (with nothing visibly in the cart) in order to add items to it. As stated above, the marketplace is still in beta version and will be improved in next versions.The official version is already available here: https://github.com/particl/particl-desktop/releases/tag/v2.3.2
