ARK Desktop Wallet v2.2.1 — Better Support for ARKChains
The latest ARK Desktop Wallet release includes many improvements and bug fixes throughout. Most notable is the improved process of adding new ARK based networks to the wallet.
During the past few weeks there have been many requests for improved handling and support of currently running ARK based blockchains (eg. Persona, Qredit, Phantom, etc) within our desktop wallet.
Previous versions of the wallet had difficulty handling some basic functions of the ARKChains, such as dealing with peer management and also with specific types of transactions like sending and voting. This can partly be due to the code changes implemented by some of these independent projects (such as API header names, epoch time, …). These issues should now be resolved and all of the above projects (along with many more out there) should be fully compatible with the ARK Desktop Wallet.
You may need to remove and re-add those projects (test them to see if they work beforehand) in the network manager if they are already imported (Cloud icon (Network) -> Manage Networks -> Click on the network you want to remove and press the ‘Remove’ button). After the network is removed, re-add it and create a new profile.
Vanilla projects (setting up a chain without changing any of the major parts of the code) should work out of the box by simply adding the network via one of the IPs.
A big thank you to the community members and developers who reported issues and helped our team with providing solutions.
