WalletWasabi v1.0.3

Summary

The latest macOS update broke Wasabi's user interface. This release contains the fix.
Another notable Tor related fix made it into this release. About once or twice a month the Tor guard your wallet connects to fails to see the whole network including our backend, this sometimes caused Wasabi to be unusable for hours. We mitigated this issue by introducing a fallback entry point.

Note, if you are updating from source code you must update your .NET Core, too to the 2.2 SDK version: https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download

Note On Updating From Source Code

If you are using Wasabi from source code, you should also upgrade your .NET Core SDK to the 2.2 version: https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download Finally proceed with the usual git pull && git submodule update --init --recursive commands.

Newbie Guide

While setting up Wasabi is straightforward, even the Linux wizard with the longest beard can get stuck on the most basic tasks. In that case, take a look at the Installation Instructions guide.

FAQ

  • Where is Wasabi's working directory located? Configuration, wallet and similar files can be found in %appdata%\WalletWasabi folder on Windows and in ~/.walletwasabi folder on Linux/OSX.
  • Can I use my own Tor instance, instead of Wasabi's built in one? If you already have Tor, and it is running, then Wasabi will try to use that first, if it is not running, then Wasabi will use its built-in Tor. If you are running a Tor daemon not on the default port, then you can configure it in Wasabi's Tools/Setting menu. If Wasabi is using your Tor daemon, then bear in mind that some Linux distributions' package repositories ship with out of date Tor. In that case, either remove or shut down that Tor of yours or make sure it's not out of date: Check Tor version: tor --version. If it's not at least 0.3.2.2, then see this writeup on how to update it.
  • Why are the binary sizes so big? Wasabi is using client side filtering and these filters must be synced before using the wallet. The size of these filters are currently about 90MB. These filters are included with the binaries to avoid initial wallet syncing.
  • Requirements? x64, linux, >win7, >osx.10.12.
