This is a patch release to accompany the v1.3.0 release of Sia. Several bugs causing instability in the UI were fixed, including bugs leading to 'out of files' errors, and bugs related to improperly starting up and shutting down siad.
In the files tab, we have added support for creating new folders, dragging folders into other folders, and we have fixed several bugs related to renaming and deleting files. The 'Create Allowance' dialog now has correct estimations for the amount of fees, where previously it would often over-estimate by as much as a factor of 10. Several bugs in the 'search' function have been fixed, and the search function will now scan subfolders as well as the current folder.
In the host tab, we have introduced a field for your 'conversion rate'. The conversion rate of a host is the expected percent of renters that will form contracts with your host. Most hosts on the network currently have a very low conversion rate, with the majority of storage being uploaded to a just a small percentage of hosts. By watching your conversion rate, you can make sure that you are in the group of hosts which is regularly getting file contracts. You can increase your conversion rate by lowering prices, adding more storage, or by having >95% uptime for more than 3 months. A full list of conversion rate factors can be found here.
In the wallet tab, we have added support for backing up your wallet and changing your encryption password. As per a suggestion from @mtlynch, whitespace around passwords is now stripped.
Thanks to @moimael, @lolsteve, and @eddiewang for contributing to this release.
This is a patch release to accompany the v1.2.2 release of Sia. It fixes bugs and improves performance related to unlocking, loading seeds, and rescanning. A few major crashing bugs were fixed that especially effected users of Mac OS X, Fedora, and low-powered systems.
Thanks to @moimael and @lolsteve for contributing to this release.
This is a patch release to accompany the v1.2.1 release of Sia. It contains some tweaks to the syncing progress bar and some minor style adjustments.
Please note that upgrading a host from v1.1.2 to v1.2.1 can take several hours. This is the last time the host will have such a long upgrade time.
The v1.2.1 release of Sia fixes a security vulnerability that especially affects hosts.
This is a minor release to accompany the v1.2.0 release of Sia. It introduces support for the new wallet features, adds a progress bar to the syncing status, fixes some style bugs, and adds a few transition animations.
This is a patch release to accompany the v1.1.2 release of Sia. It includes minor style changes and better error reporting. Thanks to @betaboot for contributing to this release!
This is a patch release to accompany the v1.1.1 release of Sia. This releases focuses on the renter and hostdb. The renter would previously slow down considerably after about 100 GB of data total had been uploaded, but now will maintain high speeds for much longer than that. While the total amount of data can now easily reach multiple TB, individual files are advised to stay below 100 GB. The hostdb is smarter about scanning and ranking hosts, though may take a few days to get fully adjusted if upgrading.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Unfortunately, our upgrades to the Renter require a full rescan of the blockchain. As a result, if you are upgrading from an older version,
siadmay take a long time to load the first time you run it. On an HDD, this may take up to an hour. On an SSD it should take closer to 10 minutes.
The UI release contains minor fixes, such as tweaking the minimization behavior and sanitizing folder paths. It also adds an overlay that appears if
siadtakes a while to load. There are also some additional warnings to prevent users from performing certain actions if they are not yet fully synchronized to the network.
This is a minor release to accompany the v1.1.0 release of Sia.
It contains minor fixes, such as adding an allowance confirmation dialog and changing the keyboard shortcuts to be non-global.
Thanks to @BitcoinErrorLog for contributing to this release!
This is a patch release that adds the Logs plugin, which allows users to view Sia's various log files without leaving the UI. The Logs plugin is hidden by default, but can be revealed via
Ctrl+Shift+L. This release also includes bug fixes and style changes to the Files plugin, among other minor bug fixes.
This release uses the v1.0.4 release of Sia.
This is an LTS release that accompanies the standard v1.0.4 release. The code is identical, except that this release is bundled with the v1.0.4-LTS release of Sia. Please read our LTS page describing how LTS releases of Sia will work.
This is a patch release that improves startup/shutdown behavior, adds functionality to the Files plugin, and fixes many minor bugs.
Signatures are now included in UI releases. They can be verified using the Sia developer key:
openssl dgst -sha256 -verify sia.pem -signature Sia-UI-*.sig Sia-UI-*.zip
This release uses the v1.0.3 release of Sia.
Thanks to @lolsteve for contributing to this release!
This is a patch release that fixes some minor bugs. The most notable change is that the Overview plugin has been removed in favor of a status bar that is visible from all plugins.
@johnathanhowell has also been tirelessly expanding the UI's test coverage.
This release uses the v1.0.1 release of Sia.
This is a patch release that fixes price estimation when calculating the allowance in the Files plugin. The old estimation algorithm was susceptible to overpriced hosts dominating the average. The new algorithm ignores outliers when estimating the average host price. It also fixes a permissions error that prevented Windows users from adding storage folders.
This release uses the 1.0.0 release of Sia.
Today we are releasing version 1.0 of Sia-UI.
The UI has undergone a complete rewrite in React+Redux, thanks to the efforts of @johnathanhowell and @droghio.
The most important thing to bear in mind is that the UI will now store its siad data (e.g. the blockchain and your wallet) in a globally shared directory:
%APPDATA%on Windows, and
Note that Sia-UI v1.0.0 is not held to the compatibility promise of Sia v1.0.0. In addition, Sia-UI binaries and release tags will not be signed until automatic updates are implemented (as they are in Sia).
Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release, especially the usuals in our Slack #contributors channel who gave feedback on the UI.
This is a patch release to accompany the latest Sia release, v0.5.2. It includes changes to the taskbar and closing behavior, as well as a few minor bugfixes.
