GPG signed hashes

We encourage users to check the integrity of the binaries and verify that they were signed by binaryFate’s GPG key. A guide that walks you through this process can be found here for Windows and here for Linux and Mac OS X.

Hash: SHA256

This GPG-signed message exists to confirm the SHA256 sums on Monero binaries.

Please verify the signature against the key for binaryFate in the
source code repository (/utils/gpg_keys).

Note the previous signer for Monero binaries was fluffypony, the change of responsibility
has been announced here:

You ought to perform the following steps:

  1. Download the new binaries (the .zip file (Windows) or the tar.bz2 file (Mac OS X and Linux)) from the direct download links in this thread or from the official website. If you run active AV (AntiVirus) software, I’d recommend to apply this guide ->
  2. Extract the new binaries (the .zip file (Windows) or the tar.bz2 file (Mac OS X and Linux) you just downloaded) to a new directory / folder of your liking.
  3. Open monero-wallet-gui. It should automatically load your “old” wallet.

If, for some reason, the GUI doesn’t automatically load your old wallet, you can open it as follows:

[1] On the second page of the wizard (first page is language selection) choose Open a wallet from file

[2] Now select your initial / original wallet. Note that, by default, the wallet files are located in Documents\Monero\<wallet-name> (Windows), Users/<username>/Monero/<wallet-name> (Mac OS X), or home/<username>/Monero/<wallet-name> (Linux).

Lastly, note that a blockchain resync is not needed, i.e., it will simply pick up where it left off.

Release notes

  • Various small UI improvements
  • New sidebar menu design
  • New blur background effect
  • New langauge: Norwegian
  • macOS: .app now displays version
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements
  • Crash fixes

Note that you can find a full change log here.Further remarks

  • A guide on pruning can be found here.
  • The Linux GUI binary was accidentally compiled without Trezor support. Thus, Trezor Monero users on Linux are recommend to wait until GUI v0.15.0.5 (which will properly include Trezor support) is released.
  • Fiat conversion is not properly working on Mac OS and Linux. This will be fixed in GUI v0.15.0.5.
  • Ledger Monero users are recommended to run GUI v0.15.0.4 in conjunction with Ledger Monero app v1.5.1.

I am using remote node, but the GUI still syncs blockchain?

Using the GUI with a remote node

In the wizard, you can either select Simple mode or Simple mode (bootstrap) to utilize this functionality. Note that the GUI developers / contributors recommend to use Simple mode (bootstrap) as this mode will eventually use your own (local) node, thereby contributing to the strength and decentralization of the network. Lastly, if you manually want to set a remote node, you ought to use Advanced mode. A guide can be found here: a new language to the GUI

If, after reading all these guides, you still require help, please post your issue on this thread and describe it in as much detail as possible.

Also, feel free to post any other guides that could help people.
