Njalla was started because it's developers couldn't find a domain name service that they wanted to use. Their goals are to be caring about privacy, simple and flexible.

Developers of MyMonero wallet published a JavaScript library for desktop and browser versions of the product.

New features:

  • Desktop: Fixed a critical issue in previous release due to insufficient testing where Contact records would not be loadable after first save (this was due to emojis being incorrectly encoded in the encryption library). If you have any Contact records which can't be loaded, please delete them from the app in the Edit modal, and add the contact info again.
  • Desktop: Added built-in software update functionality
  • Added web wallet support for Firefox after locating runtime crash on webkit CSS rule insert
  • Added support for incoming new generated_locally flag and server-supplied start_height to ensure that the correct Import Transactions button visibility persists across successive logins
  • A few minor UX and security improvements
  • Web wallet footer

The desktop application is a lightweight wallet and does not require the user to download the entire Monero blockchain.

Earlier XMR Wallet announced the successful completion of an external security audit.
