Namecoin-Qt Decoration Improvements
I’ve been improving the UX of decorations applied to transactions in Namecoin-Qt. For comparison, here’s what it looked like before the improvements:
As you can see, jargon such as
NAME_FIRSTUPDATE has been replaced with more user-friendly terminology such as
Name registration and has been moved to the
Type column (replacing the redundant
Name operation text). Name updates that do not change the value are now marked as
Name renewal, which more precisely conveys the nature of such transactions (this required some plumbing, as previously the transaction decoration code did not have access to the previous value of a name transaction). Additionally (not pictured above), name transfers are now decorated appropriately.
These improvements are expected to be included in Namecoin Core 23.0 (22.0 has already branched from master and should be released soon).
