BUG FIXES AND IMPROVEMENTS
INTEGRITY VERIFICATION FOR DAEDALUS INSTALLERS
From this release, Daedalus installers will be signed with IOHK’s organizational PGP key. Also, on the Daedalus download web page, a checksum will be published for each installer with instructions for verifying their signatures and checksums. This will enable users to verify the integrity of an installer so they can be sure that they are using the genuine, unmodified, software.
SMALLER AND FASTER USING LESS MEMORY
The size of the output application bundle built from the source has been reduced by a factor of 10 by not embedding any font, image or other static assets. This reduces the memory usage by the same factor, a change that will be noticeable for users running Daedalus on slower machines with a small amount of memory.
LINUX KANJI CHARACTERS
The font used in Daedalus has been changed to Google’s Noto Sans. This fixes a problem rendering kanji characters on Linux in preparation for the first Daedalus Linux release.
ABOUT DIALOG CHANGED TO OVERLAY
The About dialog is no longer a standalone window and is now in an overlay on the user interface. This reduces the number of rendering processes Daedalus uses and reduces memory use.
ADA REDEMPTION ICON REMOVED FROM THE MAIN MENU
The Ada redemption feature is rarely used because most people have already redeemed their Ada, so the icon has been removed from the main menu. It is now available from the system menu.
