What has changed in this release?

If you don’t want to know the details, just read the titles.

The account properties for a new multi-signature account.

Standard accumulator multi-signature script type supported

Fix opening wallets with accounts that are mid-synchronisation

Affects some users who closed their wallet while it had cleared but not yet settled transactions.

Account synchronisation has been optimised

Affects both users who are restoring accounts from seed/a master key, and users whose account is being synchronised on opening it.

Synchronised messages larger than 1 MB are no longer discarded

Affects users who restore accounts that have previously been externally for writing data to the blockchain.

MacOS builds might require Mojave (10.14) or later

Affects all MacOS users who use our builds and have an earlier version of MacOS than Mojave (10.14).

Apparently there’s now a outdated message warning of the change as well.
ElectrumSV Azure Pipelines build artifacts.

Handle BIP276-style BIP21 URLs

Affects anyone who happens to receive a payment URL that contains a BIP276 payment destination. Or wishes to give one out.

How an ElectrumSV user might give out a BIP276-based URL.

Add support for Python 3.8

Affects no-one except developers and users who run from source.

No-one wants to fund Python 3.8 support for PyInstaller 😢

Change the SQLite database support to use write-ahead logging

Affects users with wallets that have accounts that engage in activities that heavily use the database.

Accounts can now have per-derivation path gap limits

Affects advanced users who use ElectrumSV as a wallet server likely via it’s REST API. Normal wallet users should never use this, and have better options for their related issues.

Advanced users can view metadata like generated keys and derivation paths in the Keys tab.

User interface polishing for the wallet wizard

Affects all users who select an existing wallet or create a new wallet.

Selecting a wallet in the wallet wizard.
Preliminary in-application help windows.
