The new patch release of Brass Golem Beta 0.16.1 is available. This version contains some minor bugfixes, optimizations and a payment system refactor.

Thanks to the consistent feedback from our users on UX issues we’ve introduced some fixtures in GUI.

Additionally, in this release we are introducing the payment refactor, which allows to eliminate the unlikely but possible scenario of not sending funds properly. Transactions are re-broadcasted anytime they go “missing” from the tx pool, and this re-broadcasting stops only after they are confirmed by the required number of blocks.
