*) Show total amount of coins in accounts view
*) Customizable fees
*) Pin reset function with a 7 days enforced delay
*) Fix crash if you don't have a flash on your device

*) Bugfix for synchronizing single address accounts with a zero balance: now allows you to view the history
*) OKHttp - connection pooling for faster syncing (preparation for orchid integration)
*) Button for each account to manually resync (in case of possible malleabilty, or otherwise getting strange sync edge cases)

for the 2.1 version of mycelium you need Android 4+.

If you have an Android 2.3 or 3.x device, you can use the old version 2.0.6.

If you have an Android 2.2 we advise you not to use Mycelium and you should migrate to a new device. though we still have it in the play store, i'm not 100% sure what happens to existing installations if we de-publish the old version - don't want to risk any automatic uninstallation.

Important bug : 2.1.0-BETA3 was released yesterday.

It contains a problem with single address accounts, that after syncing a zero balance is calculated. Force closing and restarting the app should solve it.

A new build will be released soon to fix this.

beta 3 was pushed to github recently.
the offending change is at:

https://github.com/mycelium-com/wallet/commit/dbb7b5426114215d236df7534e1f3ab3252f82d4#diff-57bfc0805544a855e44779333fb5a864L115

+Johannes Zweng Definitely not a naive thought, that method has worked in the past for various workarounds on PCs and other tech. Its out of the box thinking, not many people think like that.

Message signing works great. The only changes I'd make is to possibly add a search function for the address selection screen, and to make the signed message user selectable in addition to the copy and share buttons. Great job overall though.

v1.3.1 was released to play store and github. Homepage will follow soon. Beta user were already enjoying this for some weeks. 

The list of changes from last regular release include:

*) generic scan button in the main view
*) improvements to barcode scanning with flashlight toggle and autofocus setting
*) email notifications
*) fixes and connectivity fallback for dns issues
*) crash fixes

We think that this will be the last feature update for the non-HD version. Stay tuned for an upcoming Mycelium HD release.

We had a problem with our dns, and the provider temporarily terminated all mycelium.com hostnames. Mycelium users had no connectivity. We published an update v1.2.20 for non-beta users and v1.3.0 for beta users that added dns-less hosts as fallback, which should restore normal connectivity.

This change was also pushed to github.

The normal domain-based access should also resume in a few hours once we resolve the problem with the provider.

BETA4 and a reminder.

We are very lucky to have you as beta testers. We received very quick and detailed feedback that syncing was broken. Special thanks to Jethro and Johnny.
Yesterdays version had a bug that broke cold storage spending and single address accounts. Private keys were not in danger.

My reminder to you: Please make sure you have a backup of all the private keys inside Mycelium.  As beta testers you will experience a lot of the bugs that are introduced. So far, no private keys were lost due to a software malfunction, but it is not entirely impossible that a future bug may mess up the internal state, and then the only way out will be restoring a backup. As devs, we DO install and run the beta builds before we push them ourselves, but we cannot run them on all possible phones/versions and configuration variants.

at last, the changenotes from BETA3+ BETA4:

*) rescan button on account for rare edge cases
*) ability to delete Local trader accounts and tradesessions
*) Db integrity checks
*) bugfix for synchronizing single address accounts with a zero balance: now allows you to view the history (this was broken in BETA3, fixed in BETA4)
*) okhttp - connection pooling for faster syncing (preparation for orchid integration)
*) migration to android studio 1.0 version number bumps

Thanks for the explanation. I tested it and it looks cool. Is there a way to generate compatible secret sharing keys without the entropy device?
