In the latest version, in the send page, funds selection defaults now always to no preference after restart.
Is this planned change or mistake?

This is a planned change. The default behaviour of the wallet re. Darksend was changed to "Darksend disabled" in v29. That's why we changed the funds selection to "no preference" as well.

When Darksend functionality has stabilized and people have adopted how it works and feel comfortable about it, we will revert the default to "Darksend enabled" again ;)

Breaking stuff is how you learn! :D

Use testnet, with tDRK it doesn't matter and the principles are all exactly the same, so you'll know what you're doing (and what not to do!) on main-net.
My wife is away on business next week. I can see a lot of evenings spent in a darkened room with takeout and terminal sessions :D

Eh? You know what? I give in. I'm totally out of my depth. I haven't got enough DRK to keep paying Yidakee to update my nodes. Every time I try to follow instructions I end up breaking something. And there I was thinking that I had to update my masternodes to 29 and I think I've broken one of them whilst trying to do so. I'm just going to go to bed early (GMT+1 here) and see where things are in the morning and if there is any more clarity on what needs to be done, to what and by who I'll be a happy man. /rantover (more upset that I've been tinkering and been caught out again :( )
Don't give up! I don't know what your depth is, but I assure you that with some reading updating a masternode is super easy. Having said that, sometimes stepping away for a few hours is a good idea. I'm quite confident with my MNs and I have done everything by myself since the beginning, but the other day I mixed files from two masternodes when restarting them and broke both. I had no time to repair things, so I just stopped everything and came back next day. Bonus 1: I skipped one update. Bonus 2: the problems my masternodes had caused had gone from everyone's memory and fixing them was much easier than if I had tried when I broke things.

Hi flare,

Darksend is not disabled by default in windows wallet though. The box is unchecked on the wallet gui. I'm running the wallet in testnet, it does the denominating as usual when i start the wallet because DS isn't disabled.

I'm a programme manager specialising in virtualisation and storage who has managed to avoid touching Linux for the past 15+ years. I'm pretty deep in my field but I'm about ankle deep in altcoins :) I'm loving learning something new.

I do think it would be useful to provide a little pre-amble with the new release notices i.e what needs to be updated and by who.

Did you start off with a fresh installation of Darkcoin v29 and deleted the registry keys in

Code:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DarkCoin\DarkCoin-Qt
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DarkCoin\DarkCoin-Qt-testnet
before? If not your previous settings are retained of course.

I'm finding the osx version pretty unusable.. even after making sure denom was turned off the processing keeps exceeding 100% and hanging. This is my work machine which can plow through very labour intensive processes but even with just finder and the qt open it keeps hanging.

I've tried vs .25,.27 and now .29. Left overnight no denomination. Sent all funds to myself to a new address (thought maybe the hundreds of micro amounts from p2pool that make up my balance was the issue) became unresponsive as soon as I hit send. After force quit the transaction has gone through. Will report back if it demoninates after this.

I can confirm this for Windows as well, catching up with blockchain causes high cpu load for me. eduffield will need to have a look at this.

Short digression to thank you for all your efforts related to testing and following up bugs and issues here and at jira.darkcoin.qa

I can see you do a lot of work behind the scene! We need someone like you to put structure into all this ;)
Thanks for the kudoz, but not to forget the many, many people here in the forum who help out too! I even received six EC2 instances free of charge from stonehedge and his wife.

Working hard to get the things sorted - and there is still a lot i want to improve ;)

Our pleasure flare. As discussed in private messages, I might not be able to help with the techie side but the least I can do is provide hardware. That's my real life specialism after all :D

I tried to compile a page which indicates the ratio of pools paying RC4:
https://drk.mn/blocks.html

We are already at more than 60% on RC4 for last 13h.

Edit: This is much faster than I anticipated. :)

Edit 2: Older blocks might be wrong regarding the RC4/RC3 status, as I did not have the masternode list history. But from this morning 5am GST it should be reliable.

Edit 3: Thanks chaeplin for the matching of pubkeys to pools. :)

Am I doing something wrong?
Win7 x64, unlocked wallet, client 0.10.12.29, total balance 313.62... , darksend enabled, coins to be anonymized 13, round 1

.. and I'm getting this at the end of the debug:

2014-08-15 15:49:13 DoAutomaticDenominating : No funds detected in need of denominating (2)


darkSend => Idle and nothing happens..

did you receive a payment to yrself ? if so, the next step will be an incoming Darksend Denominate transaction (i just received my first one on testnet).
Problem is that the network is in the middle of updating which is delaying incoming Darksend Denominate transactions.

if yr testing things on testnet you can use this site to get free test drk : https://drkipn.com/test/faucet/

you could do a -reindex to see if that possibly triggers a payment to yrself .. or you could delete the whole blockchain except yr wallet and darkcoin.conf (backup up yr wallet first !!)
and let it resync from start. Or you could wait awhile, i'm sure a new update will come soon that successfully anonymize more then just 1 round... also the master nodes still need more time to update.

I saw it at bitcointalk already but didn't notice anywhere at darkcointalk yet :)
Alrighty! :)

Besides, could be just me but since the "RC4 Testing" topic has been closed it's quite a puzzle to follow the latest development on foot. Any 'main' topic that I might have missed?

Main topic is that people are rushing to buy cheap darks before the recent panic sell reverses :)

This is what i was referring to:

Re: [ANN][DRK] DarkCoin | First Anonymous Coin | First X11 | First DGW | DarkSend+ Is Live!
Today at 06:01:14 PM

****** PLEASE UPDATE TO v9.12.30 (Stable) OR 10.12.30 (RC) *******

This update addresses the following issues:

1.) The round > 1 error was caused by a lack of fees, because of this the network refused to accept the transactions. I've made the default darksend fee 0.0125, or currently $0.043 per 1000DRK. This means to anonymize $3450 it will current cost 0.0013%. Even with the higher fee our solution is decentralized and cheaper than any comparable mixer on the market. Also, it's good to remember this fee goes to the miners, so it will actually benefit the network and make mining more valuable.
2.) The "DoAutomaticDenominating : No funds detected in need of denominating (2)" issue was caused by something added in the last version to improve anonymity in some cases. It's fixed in the new version.
3.) This update is backwards compatible.
4.) Updated the splashscreens. A big thank you to raze!
