dcrwallet v1.5.1

This release contains bug fixes and minor feature additions. A
comprehensive list of improvements and bug fixes follows.

New features

  • An auditreuse JSON-RPC method was added. This method reports all
    transactions that reuse an output address, excluding votes and
    revocations which must use the committed address from a ticket. An
    optional block height parameter may be provided to only search for
    reuse following a block.

  • The createrawtransaction JSON-RPC method was implemented directly.
    This allows users of the SPV syncing mode to perform the call, rather
    than the call erroring due to no RPC passthrough to a dcrd JSON-RPC

Other improvements

  • The option is now expanded with ~ and environment

  • The sample config has been updated with options related to

Bug fixes

  • Duplicate logs for insufficient balance errors during automated
    ticketbuying have been silenced.

  • The gRPC method TicketBuyerV2Service.RunTicketBuyer contained a
    regression causing all change to be created for only the default
    (first) account. A fix was made to restore the previous behavior,
    where change is created for the source account.

  • An address reuse bug caused by resetting child indexes backwards
    after address and account discovery was corrected. It was possible
    for this bug to be hit any time network synchronization had to be
    restarted (e.g. the dcrd JSON-RPC link was lost), because address
    discovery would always occur on resync.

  • A shutdown hang of the dcrwallet process following a panic in a
    JSON-RPC handler was fixed with improved synchronization code.

  • A data race in the signrawtransaction JSON-RPC method was

  • A memory leak in the JSON-RPC websocket client to dcrd was fixed.
    This bug caused excessive memory usage by retaining every unmarshaled
    response in memory for the lifetime of the websocket connection.

  • Extended pubkeys imported via the importxpub JSON-RPC method may
    now be used immediately rather than requiring a restart of the process.
