Sparrow Wallet v1.8.0: Transaction Diagram Captions, Open Wallets Search & More
  • "This release makes signing easier by including a caption on the transaction diagram displaying the full address you are sending to. It also summarizes other transaction types like coinjoins, making it easier to understand them at a glance."
  • "The QR display has been enlarged and the density has been increased, making it quicker and easier to scan large PSBTs. It is now possible to perform message signing with compatible airgapped hardware wallets."
  • "You can now search across all open wallets using the command in the View menu. When searching, transactions with a matching output address will be shown if a full address is provided."
  • "The gap limit of a wallet will now be increased as necessary where xpubs provided in a PSBT match the wallet. This is useful when using Sparrow as an offline, airgapped signer that by definition has no transaction history."
  • "Sparrow Terminal has been improved, supporting freezing and unfreezing of UTXOs by pressing the 'f' key. If a proxy has been configured, its status is now indicated in the title bar."
  • "Other improvements include the ability to open multiple wallet or transaction files at once, fee rate selection on the Private Key Sweep dialog, keyboard shortcuts to switch tabs, and much more. "
