Wasabi Wallet 1.1.12 is out!

Wasabi Wallet 1.1.12 is now available! This release introduces several major features, improvements and bug fixes.

What’s new?

Among many other improvements, this major release is a preparation for the upcoming v4 Hard Fork. In the near future, the backend will be upgraded to v4 and Hard Fork means that it will break the compatibility with old clients. In any case, your funds are safe, even if you forget to upgrade - you will just find yourself in front of an "upgrade your client now" message.

To avoid this it is recommended to upgrade, as this version support both v3 and v4 backend.

There are many other improvements, so without wasting further time, let's go see them specifically:

Major connectivity improvements

We upgraded Tor from v4.2.5 to v4.3.5 on both client and backend side - hopefully, it will mitigate the connectivity issues. Also, there were a couple of Tor/Connection related issues that were fixed. See the changelog here for more details.

PayJoin support

Together with BTCPay, we added PayJoin support that can work through Tor.

PayJoin is a collaborative transaction between the sender and the receiver of a payment, for example the merchant and the customer. The goal of the protocol is to break the common input ownership heuristic, while making it difficult to fingerprint that the transaction is in fact a CoinJoin. Further, it reduces the transaction fees paid by the merchant due to the consolidation of coins.
