  • Settings have been refactored, defaults are now properly restored. Also Node configuration section has been refactored and includes now the name of the operator and a standardized location description.
  • Ping and initial connection strategy has been accelerated. For the best result we recommend to ping all nodes manually once in the Node configuration

Great work, guys! You're all constantly delivering excellent improvements to the Bitshares UI, keep it up! :D

Add possibility to publish price feed

Very cool! It'll be WAY easier for users to produce 1:1 MPAs, previously you needed to run a small python script which for many (despite the low complexity) was a barrier to entry.
