It's going to be hard to top Onyx, this much I can tell you...

Cheetah is probably the best one so far, everyone associates a cheetah with speed. Black Panther will sound too political...
Hmm... dark revolutionaries seeking to overthrow the existing order of suppression by a willingly ignorant and complicit majority... no you're right we're nothing like that.:rolleyes:

Black Panther Edition does sound sexy as...

Do we want to be associated with Denzel Washington movies though?

We need a new release name for this upcoming release. Suggestions are welcome!
I would suggest the Latin word: LUCIS which means Light.

We've had a very challenging but exciting year for Darkcoin and I think we can all collectively see the "light" at the end of the tunnel through the amazing work of Evan and others who have served through the forums, chat rooms, app messengers and in silence :).

Let there be Light! : LUCIS

Or we can go with OBSIDIAN
Obsidian is a naturally occurring BLACK volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock. It is produced when felsic lava extruded from a volcano cools rapidly with minimum crystal growth.

It is pure darkness...
Black Panther and Obsidian are the two best sounding so far, rolls off the tongue nice...

Obsidian. That brings me back. This one was in my rotation circa 2000 at Burning Man. Could be the new DarkCoin Theme.


EDIT - Don't give up before 4 minutes...

Just throwing my idea for a name out there "LibertyX" or just "Liberty" has a nice sound to it.
I believe there is another coin name Libertycoin, so I would avoid that.

let's name the v0.10.18 after "moli" for warning us first that the previous version is broken and the Darksend transactions can in fact be traced :)
No, please don't. More credits go to the devs, Aswan, and many other people who looked into the code and have been working relentlessly to make Darkcoin better and better.

ITT: People wanting to be the one who named a Darkcoin release, almost no one discussing the actual announcement. If you name it after some sort of big cat, we'll look like OS X.

v0.10.18.x:

The last release was a giant success and Darksend is mixing (for most users), the transactions are very secure and anonymous. But there's still some issues with the implementation. We're going to utilize all of our new talent (Patrick and UdjinM6) to help restructure and flush out the design of Darksend over the few weeks.

Changes will include:
  • Closing all of the security vulnerabilities we can find.
  • Getting Darksend mixing working better (it gets stuck frequently, it's not user friendly)
  • Improving Darksend mixing feedback to the user
  • Redoing some of the Darksend/Masternode code to make it easier to understand
  • Moving to 0.9.3 Bitcoin code base, based on Darkcoil (thanks to Vertoe)
After this update, we want Darksend to mix faster (We're targeting 4-8 hours @8 rounds) and easier for your average everyday user. We'll also look through the code again
for vulnerabilities and close them all. We're gaining much more attention (good and bad), so we want the code to be as secure and easy as possible before diving into introducing InstantX.

During this period the InstantX code will be open-source and merged into the project. We encourage developers to look at the implementation and give feedback to improve it before we launch.

We need a new release name for this upcoming release. Suggestions are welcome!

Are you still going to implement the "Change Contracts using Atomic Transfers" with the plan you talked about when we were on that thread?

With dead change going to the network, it's a non-issue at the moment.
Evan answered this question on #darkcoin-test. I'll post it here for you guys to see:
[15:21:41] <evan82> No, I'm not even sure it's needed. We'll see how the current structure functions for awhile.
[15:22:47] <evan82> Currently it's mixing, completely anonymous and without any known issues. I'd hate to mess with that.
[15:23:08] <evan82> I'd rather work on getting the mixing smooth as butter
[15:23:22] <evan82> It'd be nice if you could mix 8 rounds in an hour

Sounds about right. If the time for 8 rounds could be reduced to that amount of time, there isn't any reason not to default to 8 and get rid of the option to specify less. Better pool of pathways and better represents how powerful multiple rounds can be in terms of anonymity through obscurity.
