pybitmessage (0.3.4-1) raring; urgency=low
* Switched addr, msg, broadcast, and getpubkey message types
to 8 byte time. Last remaining type is pubkey.
* Added tooltips to show the full subject of messages
* Added Maximum Acceptable Difficulty fields in the settings
* Send out pubkey immediately after generating deterministic
addresses rather than waiting for a request

pybitmessage (0.3.3-1) raring; urgency=low
* Remove inbox item from GUI when using API command trashMessage
* Add missing trailing semicolons to pybitmessage.desktop
* Ensure $(DESTDIR)/usr/bin exists
* Update Makefile to correct sandbox violations when built
via Portage (Gentoo)
* Fix message authentication bug

pybitmessage (0.3.211-1) raring; urgency=low
* Removed multi-core proof of work
as the multiprocessing module does not work well with
pyinstaller's --onefile option.

pybitmessage (0.3.2-1) raring; urgency=low
* Bugfix: Remove remaining references to the old myapp.trayIcon
* Refactored message status-related code. API function getStatus
now returns one of these strings: notfound, msgqueued,
broadcastqueued, broadcastsent, doingpubkeypow, awaitingpubkey,
doingmsgpow, msgsent, or ackreceived
* Moved proof of work to low-priority multi-threaded child
* Added menu option to delete all trashed messages
* Added inv flooding attack mitigation
* On Linux, when selecting Show Bitmessage, do not maximize
* Store tray icons in

pybitmessage (0.3.1-1) raring; urgency=low
* Added new API commands: getDeterministicAddress,
addSubscription, deleteSubscription
* TCP Connection timeout for non-fully-established connections
now 20 seconds
* Don't update the time we last communicated with a node unless
the connection is fully established. This will allow us to
forget about active but non-Bitmessage nodes which have made
it into our knownNodes file.
* Prevent incoming connection flooding from crashing
singleListener thread. Client will now only accept one
connection per remote node IP
* Bugfix: Worker thread crashed when doing a POW to send out
a v2 pubkey (bug introduced in 0.3.0)
* Wrap all sock.shutdown functions in error handlers
* Put all 'commit' commands within SQLLocks
* Bugfix: If address book label is blank, Bitmessage wouldn't
show message (bug introduced in 0.3.0)
* Messaging menu item selects the oldest unread message
* Standardize on 'Quit' rather than 'Exit'
* [OSX] Try to seek homebrew installation of OpenSSL
* Prevent multiple instances of the application from running
* Show 'Connected' or 'Connection Lost' indicators
* Use only 9 half-open connections on Windows but 32 for
everyone else
* Added appIndicator (a more functional tray icon) and Ubuntu
Messaging Menu integration
* Changed Debian install directory and run script name based
on Github issue #135

pybitmessage (0.3.0-1) raring; urgency=low
* Added new API function: getStatus
* Added error-handling around all sock.sendall() functions
in the receiveData thread so that if there is a problem
sending data, the threads will close gracefully
* Abandoned and removed the connectionsCount data structure;
use the connectedHostsList instead because it has proved to be
more accurate than trying to maintain the connectionsCount
* Added daemon mode. All UI code moved into a module and many
shared objects moved into
* Truncate display of very long messages to avoid freezing the UI
* Added encrypted broadcasts for v3 addresses or v2 addresses
after 2013-05-28 10:00 UTC
* No longer self.sock.close() from within receiveDataThreads,
let the sendDataThreads do it
* Swapped out the v2 announcements subscription address for a v3
announcements subscription address
* Vacuum the messages.dat file once a month: will greatly reduce the file size
* Added a settings table in message.dat
* Implemented v3 addresses:
pubkey messages must now include two var_ints: nonce_trials_per_byte
and extra_bytes, and also be signed. When sending a message to a v3
address, the sender must use these values in calculating its POW or
else the message will not be accepted by the receiver.
* Display a privacy warning when selecting 'Send Broadcast from this address'
* Added gitignore file
* Added code in preparation for a switch from 32-bit time to 64-bit time.
Nodes will now advertise themselves as using protocol version 2.
* Don't necessarily delete entries from the inventory after 2.5 days;
leave pubkeys there for 28 days so that we don't process the same ones
many times throughout a month. This was causing the 'pubkeys processed'
indicator on the 'Network Status' tab to not accurately reflect the
number of truly new addresses on the network.
* Use 32 threads for outgoing connections in order to connect quickly
* Fix typo when calling os.environ in the sys.platform=='darwin' case
* Allow the cancelling of a message which is in the process of being
sent by trashing it then restarting Bitmessage
* Bug fix: can't delete address from address book
-- Bob Mottram (4096 bits) <> Tue, 6 May 2013 12:06:00 +0100
pybitmessage (0.2.8-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Fixed Ubuntu & OS X issue:
Bitmessage wouldn't receive any objects from peers after restart.
* Inventory flush to disk when exiting program now vastly faster.
* Fixed address generation bug (kept Bitmessage from restarting).
* Improve deserialization of messages
before processing (a 'best practice').
* Change to help Macs find OpenSSL the way Unix systems find it.
* Do not share or accept IPs which are in the private IP ranges.
* Added time-fuzzing
to the embedded time in pubkey and getpubkey messages.
* Added a knownNodes lock
to prevent an exception from sometimes occurring when saving
the data-structure to disk.
* Show unread messages in bold
and do not display new messages automatically.
* Support selecting multiple items
in the inbox, sent box, and address book.
* Use delete key to trash Inbox or Sent messages.
* Display richtext(HTML) messages
from senders in address book or subscriptions (although not
pseudo-mailing-lists; use new right-click option).
* Trim spaces
from the beginning and end of addresses when adding to
address book, subscriptions, and blacklist.
* Improved the display of the time for foreign language users.

pybitmessage (0.2.7-1) unstable; urgency=low

* Source moved int src directory for debian standards compatibility
* Trailing carriage return on COPYING LICENSE and
