Beta 0.5.11 / 0.5.12 / 0.5.13 is here!

[hr]
This is minor release to fix some of the issues.
Changes:


    [li]UI improvements[/li]
    [li]Multisig window changes[/li]
    [li]Fixed bug that could lead to fork (people stuck at block 7xxxx have to delete their db and resync)[/li]
    [li]upcoming FORK BLOCK (due to stricter validation): 23k (23552)[/li]
    [li]Fixed multisig performance issue identified by spamming (thanks spammers ^^)[/li]
    [li]NIS db improvements that can improve initial load by up to 33%[/li]
    [li]Alpha installer for Windows and Mac (Webstart support has been dropped)[/li]
    [li]Closed issues (doesn't mean solved ;)):

      [li]https://github.com/NewEconomyMovement/NemCommunityClient/issues/272[/li]
      [li]https://github.com/NewEconomyMovement/NemCommunityClient/issues/241[/li]
      [li]https://github.com/NewEconomyMovement/NemCommunityClient/issues/235[/li]
      [li]https://github.com/NewEconomyMovement/NemCommunityClient/issues/243[/li]


      0.5.12 is a minor bugfix release, some nodes (especially main ones, could provide unverifiable data - and got penalized ofc):

      0.5.13 fixes memory problems and reduces load on servers during heavy spam attacks, so it's RECOMMENDED
      NCC github issues:

        [li]https://github.com/NewEconomyMovement/NemCommunityClient/issues/251[/li]
        [li]https://github.com/NewEconomyMovement/NemCommunityClient/issues/270[/li]
        [li]https://github.com/NewEconomyMovement/NemCommunityClient/issues/275[/li]

        Added new NIS config settings:
        <br /># harvesters that are allowed to use this remote nis for harvesting<br /># if none are specified, all are allowed<br />nis.allowedHarvesterAddresses =<br />
        <br /># Indicates whether or not the block loading should be delayed.<br /># VPSes which run only a standalone NIS will probably not want to delay.<br /># Users running both NIS and NCC with GUI will probably want to delay.<br />nis.delayBlockLoading = true<br />
        see here: https://forum.ournem.com/beta-launch-discussion/nem-beta-0-5-5/msg12744/#msg12744

        [hr]

        NEM requires Java 8
        You can start NCC and NIS with an installer from the following link:
        http://bob.nem.ninja/installer/
        Standalone version: http://bob.nem.ninja/

        [hr]

        Enjoy the new version :slight_smile:

#2

can we use our existing wallets?
yes

#3

nice job. will test out the installer and let you know how it goes… :slight_smile:

"NIS db improvements that can improve initial load by up to 33%"

wow… thats impressive… :smiley:

thanks for including zip versions too. :slight_smile:


#4

i just installed java 8 fresh on my machine but it installed 32bit for some reason… either way the installer wouldnt work with 32bit java…



installing 64bit now…

there's good reason not to use 32-bit java, that is: it won't be able to use all the memory that you have - which sux

#6

I didn't know the 32 bit was installed. For anyone who doesn't know the difference they are just guna close the application and move on. Perhaps in the warning message put something like "don't know how to install 64bit java? Click here" or something like that.


#7

also, when it finished installing and asked if i wanted to launch the client when i click finish, it didnt launch it. (waited about 5 mins) had to go to desk top to click the short cut(which worked perfectly.)

to sum up… the only issues:

32 bit not supported: no info on how to get the right version. even having an "install java 8 64bit" check box in the warning message would be fantastic… and once the correct version is installed, automatically restart the Nem installation.

client didnt start after i clicked finish with "launch client" check box checked.

other than that… flawless! :smiley: way better than webstart. nice improvement on the password bit when creating a wallet too.

edit: irt remote harvesting… im getting error 306 after importing my genesis private key and trying to start remote harvesting again on the updated nis. i guess i need to deactivate remote harvesting and activate it again?. is there a faster way of doing the same thing in config files or anything so i dont need to wait ages to start remote harvesting again after updating my node?

small gui bug - "see all transactions" is out of place: http://imgur.com/V5c95Fq

When creating a multisig account, it allows me to enter the same address as two different co-signatures and lets me go all the way to clicking "convert" and then throws a 306 error. perhaps it would be best to just catch this in the GUI not allow the same account be entered twice? and if account with label "account 1" is entered as a co-signatory, remove it from the drop down list of accounts for co-sig #2?

im connected to remote nis… it keeps going offline "Nis is not available" like was happening in a previous version(which got fixed) but seems to have come back.

i was just able to set a multisig account(cant do tx;s) as a co-signatory of another account… could NCC first check if an account is already a multisig account before allowing it to be made into a co-sig? also vice versa: check if an account is a co-sig before being allowed to turn it into a multisig account?

here is me failing on Windows 7.  I have also failed on 8.1 too.  I'll upload those later but it is the same story with the stand alone.  runMon works fine and runNcc works fine.  I can even connect to remote NIS's that I leached (thank you ninja), but I can't get NIS to work on my machine.  It'll start for a moment and then auto close every time.

As for the installer on Windows 7, I got an error about Java saying it only supports 64bit but I am on a 32bit machine.  I'm guessing that I can't support 64bit Java then.  I'm using windows 7 Enterprise SP1 32bit on this machine. 

Maybe these two problems are related? not sure

you have mixed something with packages, as it tries to load nis 0.5.5:

[code]
[jar:file:/C:/Users/xxx/Desktop/package/nis/nem-infrastructure-server__V0.5.5-BETA.jar!/org/nem/nis/x/jb.class]: Unsatisfied dependency expressed through [/code]

are there any leftovers from 0.5.5?

#11

I moved the whole NEM folder out of C drive onto my desktop.  I cleared Java config.  still testing


#12

I am using a computer right now where everything is Korean.  My guess is I didn't unzip the files correctly and my old package got mixed with my new package (sounds so bad. hahahaha).

I delete all NEM related things I could find and then unzipped the package to my "music" folder because I figured there wasn't any NEM things to get confused and mixed with in that folder. 

I have downloaded the new database and installed it and now I'm in the wallet finishing the sync. :slight_smile:

And… I am stuck at 18,647.

I am about to leave my office so I will turn it off and try on my home computers.

How I started the node with 0.5.11.
  a & b) At first I attempted to run my NEM node (runNis.bat & runNCC.bat) with the old db. The verification of the db (about 21000 blocks) was successful, but then NIS stuck at 'Booting NIS…' point. I made two failed attempts. The logs and the picture are: http://nekaka.com/d/q8UgpoJAkS.
  c) Then I deleted db and began the synchronizing at first, from zero. In this case 13000 blocks are downloaded at 3 hours, and the process stuck.
  d) I returned back db with 21000 blocks and started as in the item 'a'. It is strange but this time it was ok  :slight_smile:

---------------------------------------------
UPD. The solution. It was necessary to immediately clear Java's cache before the new start.
    Windows 7:
Start > Control Panel > Java
or
Start > (Search programs and files) Java Config > (choice) Configure Java
    Window 'Java Control Panel' opens
    Then
General > (Temporary Internet Files) Settings… > Delete Files…
Leave the second check (Cached Applications and Applets) or first & second one (+ Trace and Log Files).
OK.

Good work Jaguar and the rest of all the people involved!

First thing that happened while opening the Windows Installer, was the Windows Smartscreen that prevented me from opening. 
How do we make this .exe a "trusted" file for windows (I have Windows 8.1 professional)? 
Installation went fine and without any troubles.


#15

avast is still freaking out. Really holding me back:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/s7b9x2ju5vmhp9q/Untitled.jpg?dl=0

This is cropping up almost every few minutes. I assume it's NEM client trying to start a node but avast shooting it down every time.

Of course, a temporary solution is to disable AV but anyone in their right mind won't be willing to do this.


Overall though, this is another step in the right direction. Started seamlessly and extremely fast.

I am currently up and synced.  This how I did it. 

I deleted every folder or file I could find for running NEM.  I then downloaded a fresh stand alone and started it up.  I let it sync from scratch.  It did get stuck a couple of times and made me think, oh man..... I did it again. hahahaha.  But it picked back up and recovered.  :-)

We would need another certificate for that.

I running Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit and Installer don't work because my system is not 64 bit - when Installer will be working in 32 Windows ?

0.5.12 stand alone install worked great for me.
