After 0.9 was a great succes, I am now trying to port the latest bitcoin 0.10-tree to be compatible with the Darkcoin network:
https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/tree/0.10

The bitcoin 0.10.x core wallet is currently in release candidate status (rc, to be released soon) and we should start porting its feature rather sooner than later. I can't promise anything yet, will do it step by step and document any progress in this thread.

First step is compiling a list of things which need to be done:
https://github.com/vertoe/darkcoil/blob/master-0.10/TODO.md

Any hints and discussion very welcome. This is the first time I'm working on a 0.10.x-tree.

The most interesting (and technically challenging) feature in this release will be the headers-first synchronization which changes a lot how the client reads and distributes the blockchain.

Before syncing the whole blockchain (currently a couple of 100s MB) the client requests only the block headers (only a couple of MB) which takes less than a minutes. Awesome stuff.

But that said, this port will be technically more complicated and will take some time. This and because bitcoin-0.10 is not released yet will allow me to carefully announce a release date at the end of Q2/2015. Will update if I make good progress here.

I wanted to fixed some wrong UI-texts in v0.11.x and found a LOT of obsolete Bitcoin references in the locale-files which I planned to fix/remove as well...

Does it make sense to do that now? With Bitcoin-0.10 we'll have all that stuff again...:rolleyes:

Any notes on hierarchical deterministic wallets with relation to Darkcoin? I'm trying to understand them better with Bitcoin and my very limited grasp suggests they could effect darksend. Thanks.
