Sparrow Wallet v1.7.9: Wallet Accounts Summary Dialog & More
  • "This release includes the much requested feature of a summary of the accounts in a wallet. Use accounts to segregate UTXOs from different origins or for different purposes, but keep track of your total using this dialog accessed from the View menu."
  • "Keystore labels are now included in output descriptor QRs, including the QR in the PDF export. This means your keystore labels are restored when you scan the QR back into Sparrow."
  • "Misspelt a transaction label? When you fix it, your change will now be propagated to related addresses and UTXOs. Previously only empty labels would change. If you have changed the address or UTXO label to something else however, it won't be affected."
  • "This release also contains support for nodes configured with mempoolfullrbf=1, allowing you to create RBF transactions regardless of whether the original signals replaceability. Close Sparrow and change the variable mempoolFullRbf in the config file (see FAQ for location)."
  • "There are several other features and bug fixes in this release, including an upgrade to HWI v2.3.1, another public Electrum server (thanks @sethforprivacy) and other UX improvements."
