Version 0.0.2 is out now! You just need to discontinue use of the previous version; and open up and login to the new version, nothing beyond that. Note: you do not need to do “wallet reset” if you already have a wallet on your computer. Wallet reset is a separate feature.

This has been a great week for us. It’s been a great pleasure taking in feedback from the community to make the wallet an experience that we hope you’ll enjoy very much. Also make it user friendly to the new comers.
We got hit with a stormy week on the Bitcoin network and many transactions were stuck because of a malfunction in the fee recommendation provided by the application. We’ve addressed that in the new release.
More info on that can be found in my post here: Bitcoin Mem Pool issues August 25, 2017
The new wallet can be found on the new releases:
In this release we addressed the significant usability issues. The order in which requests are made have been made more logical towards the perspective of a user. From now on the application must connect to the nodes, confirming that, it fetches the most important data first. Then it populates balances and unlocks the ability to make transactions.
There is additional support for indication where a transaction is dispatched and awaiting a reply. If there is some issue there is a notification. Additionally, there is a refresh button. The application will require that the user manually refresh the application to check their wallet. This is to reduce server load, and it is limited to one refresh per three minutes.
Additionally, there is a password change in a settings cog, as well as exporting unencrypted keys, exporting an encrypted safexwallet.dat file, as well as a logout button.
Finally, there is the ability for completely deleting the wallet that is stored at the core. It will allow the user a chance to back up encrypted and unencrypted versions of their wallet before finishing off with deleting the old wallet making room for a new wallet file to be created.
If there is any feedback or support requirements refer to the forum and the support category:
In the week ahead, we will continue with reinstating the safex.io coin vending application as well as the updated information regarding Safex related to Chille, the FAQ, and the story behind Why we started Safex in the first place.
Furthermore, since last Saturday we’ve begun to discuss the future from the perspective of economics. With the wallet in a condition that I hope is usable to all of you, and pleasant, we will be able to dive fully into Chille development.
