.unicon file) where the contract you’ve selected is set as the primary one (assuming the contract is in APPROVED state). The transaction will still contain all the other contracts (so the whole pack is valid).
The cancelled U purchase orders are double-checked on the client startup, to give out the purchases which were wrongly cancelled.

Fix for a sporadic bug with mintable token sending out. Favicon added.
Hotfix for mintable token validation.
Mintable token contract template added, with such extra features like the interface to issue more tokens for a mintable token. For mintable contracts, its unique per-token information (to distinguish the token from other similarly-named ones) is in its “Issued by” field; so this field is displayed in the wallets for these tokens, instead of “Origin ID” field (as for non-mintable tokens). Various GUI fixes and textual tweaks.
Maintenance completed, “Maintenance and heavy load” warning removed.
Fix for the primary sibling detection for the token split procedure. “Maintenance and heavy load” warning added.
The default api_level for the contract operations is now 3. More fixes for hypertoken functionality description and wording.

Hotfix for new contact add to the chat.
As a preparation for hypertoken renaming/rewording, the hypertoken purchase form temporarily switched off.
Hotfix for uBTC hypertoken purchase.
Hotfix for hypertoken purchase form.
Hotfix for the aggregation of tokens into the wallets.
Hypertoken purchase (for BTC and ETH at the moment) is available for a public beta test; other features are approaching.
The split-join contracts (tokens and alike) now display not just the currency symbol/name, but also some unique binary identifier. This prevents confusing between multiple currencies (probably, even issued by different issuers) which are named similarly. For non-mintable contracts/tokens, the hashId of the origin contract is displayed; for mintable, the tuple of issuer address and the short name (which are normally used to split/join such mintable contracts).
Contracts are now being imported and exported using the Transaction Pack binary structure (previously they were serialized as Capsules). The Capsule import is still supported, too.
v2.6.0, codename “Mainnet” (12.04.2018)
Mainnet has been launched and announced.
Signature internals tweaked.
Some U-related interface cleanups.
On the “U” purchase dialog, it is displayed now if the promo code is invalid.
In the “U” purchase dialog, the return/refund address field is now optional in case if the promo code is used.
Internal message structure updates for transaction serialization.
Besides the public key, the user can be identified by the address (or multiple addresses). The addresses are available in the key list; also, the interface of the contract templates is updated to support the addresses as well.
create_at handling in some obscure scenarios.
Hotfixes for transaction type detection when the transactions are sent out from contract list, for repeated token sending out, and for token sends through the chat.
Hotfix for the slow contract update from the Crypto Cloud in case of laggy networks.
Now, during the transaction registration, you can choose whether you want to register it in MainNet or in TestNet. The balance of your MainNet or TestNet transactions will be decremented accordingly (depending on the transaction complexity and therefore cost).
Temporarily disabled the browser notifications which could cause the nasty notification loop.
Various hotfixes during Access Package purchase.
Access Package purchase page improvements:
- The QR code is displayed for the payment address;
- Return address validation and checksum calculation;
- The list of products is refreshed more aggressively (to support price and availability changes).
Cleaning up terminology and explanations of fee structure.
The default product (Access Package) to purchase is now preselected. Minor text corrections.
Hotfix for notary contract file download.
v2.1.0, codename “LaunchSequence” (05.03.2018)
Major step towards the fully functioning MainNet: you can now purchase the transactions for the Universa MainNet.
This involves two major features:
- A store page is launched where you can purchase the Access Packages, and pay for them in UTNP tokens (at the moment). Each Access Package include Universa (and Crypto Cloud) access for 1 year, a (generous) amount of test transactions, and some amount of regular transactions.
- The purchased transactions above are consumed by Universa during its operation (contract registrations). For debugging/integration purposes, you may use test transactions, which are way cheaper (though may have storage/duration limitations and should not be relied upon for any important operations). The fee for these transactions is now displayed in the user interface.
Hotfix for account form validation.
Hotfixes for account page presentation.
Hotfix for old (deprecated) contract format decoding.
Hotfix for SHA2 and SHA3 cryptography algorithms (JS implementation) stability improvements.
v2.0.0, codename “ThreeTimesBetter” (27.02.2018)
Major backwards-incompatible change (one that required the Testnet data wipe on 27.02.2018). Before this, the hashId (that is used to uniquely identify all the contracts) was created as a (80 bytes long) result of SHA-512 (SHA-2 family algorithm) calculation. Now it is a (96 bytes long) record and is calculated as a concatenation of results from three different families of hash functions (requiring three different collision attacks to succeed simultaneously). The components of the new hashId are:
- SHA-512/256, the strongest to the length extension attack variant of SHA-2 family algorithms; part of FIPS PUB 180-2 US Federal standard since August 2002;
- SHA3-256, an algorithm of totally different algorithm family, SHA-3; part of FIPS PUB 202 US Federal standard since August 2015;
- “Streebog”, a hash function defined by GOST R 34.11-2012 (ГОСТ Р 34.11-2012); Russian standard since January 2013; also covered by RFC 6986.
Added the warning message about the upcoming Testnet data wipe during “ThreeTimesBetter” release.
Hotfix for “Send” button availability in the wallet interface for non-logged-in users.
Hotfix for visual glitch in accepting the contact requests.
v1.4.0, codename “Exchange” (16.01.2018)
- Exchanging the contracts is now available through the peer-to-peer chat, using the interactive dialog. You can add either some amount of the splittable contracts (tokens) to the exchange transaction; or you can add any non-splittable contracts to give them away.
Hotfix for HTML escaping in chat messages.
Hotfix for the chat being stuck on loading.
- Fixed the issue with sending the tokens when balance is zero.
- Visual improvement of sidebar when multiple chats are available.
- The contract templates are now scrolled horizontally.
v1.3.0, codename “Notifier” (12.12.2017)
- When any new message is received, an audial notification is provided and a browser notification is displayed. The browser notifications are combined and aggregated, to prevent flooding the screen with them.
Hotfix for issue with wallets currency merging displaying.
Hotfix for documentation accessibility.
v1.2.0, codename “Notary” (26.11.2017)
- New “Notary contract” contract template, making it possible to register the binary contents of some files, and to validate them later.
- Audial notifications to any changes of contract state according to the Universa network.
Some problems fixed, related to the future-proof of contract storage in the crypto cloud.
Some bugs were fixed, related to the compatibility of contract operations between uniclient CLI and Web Client.
v1.1.0, codename “Optimal Primes” (13.11.2017)
- Created and edited contracts can now be stored in the crypto cloud (available only under your private key).
- The result of various network operations, especially contract registrations/validations/errors, is now displayed through the in-site notifications.
Some issues and bugs (such as problems with sending the tokens/tickets which would require to join several contracts) fixed.
v1.0.1, codename “911 Emergency” (09.11.2017)
- Uploading the contract from the file will verify it in Universa network automatically.
- Clicking the contract status causes a refresh/recheck in Universa network.
- If there is something new in wallets, they get a red mark/badge.
- When opening a chat window, the entry field is focused by default.
- If a contract is corrupt somehow, the previous “last approved” state can still be recovered and reverted to.
Some issues and bugs (such as during the attempts to send tokens) fixed.
v1.0.0, codename “Seven-Eleven” (07.11.2017)
First public beta release of Universa Testnet and Universa Web Client.
Testnet is now publicly open for everyone to test the contract functionality of Universa. You can use Universa Web Client to create, edit and store contracts, to communicate with other Universa users using Messenger and send the contracts, all that with maximum security.
- Create a new private key pair to login or signatures (and make sure to back it up locally for future reuse).
- Log in, edit your account (for Messenger), the account options are stored in the crypto cloud.
- Alternatively, create a password to be used for “Nick+Password” login, similarly to regular Messengers.
- Create the Universa contracts, using either the predefined templates (for tokens, and for shares / votes / tickets), or using the full-featured editor.
- In about 30 seconds of editing and writing 0 lines of programming code, you can launch your own token or cryptocurrency. 1 cent is 0.01 of a dollar; your cryptocurrency may contain units as precise as 0.000000001 of your currency).
- You may also create the contracts that cannot be split lower that 1 whole unit (good for company shares, election votes or gig tickets).
- Browse the Wallets, which contain all the joinable/splittable contracts in a more convenient form.
- Find your friends by the nick they’ve made public, and start chatting with them in the Messenger.
- “Pay out” or give out a part of the joinable/splittable contracts (like tokens or tickets), transferring them to the Messenger.
- Download and upload the contract files locally, for backup and future safety (please note: unless they have been transferred over the Messenger, the contracts are not stored in the crypto cloud at the moment! If you don’t want to lose them, do download them locally).
