We are pleased to announce the next MultiBit HD release (0.2.0) is available for download.
This release adds support for buying and selling bitcoin using Glidera along with a simple news alert for keeping up to date with activity in MultiBit.
Here is a quick summary of the changes contained in this release:
Many people have asked us for the ability to buy and sell bitcoin easily from MultiBit HD and after careful consideration we have selected Glidera as our partner to fulfil this feature. At the time of writing (Q1 2016) Glidera have strong coverage in the USA and Canada with more regions planned in the coming year.
As with all regulated financial services managing transactions in national currencies you will need to verify your identity during their account set up, but this information is not passed to MultiBit in any way. For more information, please refer to the Buy/Sell bitcoin help article.
We maintain an Atom feed (see link at the foot of the page) and many users have expressed an interest in having a basic news alerter directly within the application so that they can be kept up to date with developments. This is now available in version 0.2.0
We normally wait 24 hours after a release and then activate the semi-automatic upgrade process. You decide if the upgrade occurs. The upgrade process will not affect your wallet data. Only the application binaries will be upgraded.
You can find more details, including digital signatures, on the download page.
