The Dogecoin Foundation has released a major update to its libdogecoin toolset, which is great news for fans of the popular cryptocurrency. The update, which has been named libdogecoin 0.1.2, includes a range of new features and improvements that are sure to be well-received by developers and users alike.

According to an announcement from developer Michi Lumin on March 23, the new release includes a number of significant enhancements. One of the most notable new features is support for bip39 seedphrase generation and conversion, which allows users to generate mnemonic phrases in many different languages. This functionality is available in the included ‘such’ executable as a utility and can be used to generate mnemonic phrases.

In addition to bip39 seedphrase support, libdogecoin 0.1.2 now fully supports bip32/44 and slips44 HD addressing. This means that libdogecoin can properly derive keys and addresses according to bip32 and 44 rules, and can produce child keys and addresses. This functionality is also available in the ‘such’ executable utility.

Other new features include QR code support, which allows libdogecoin to generate QR codes on the fly in text, jpeg, and png formats without any additional libraries needed. There is also message signing support, which allows for message and transaction signing and verification.

One of the most significant improvements in libdogecoin 0.1.2 is its MSVC CMAKE full support for Windows builds. This means that libdogecoin now builds its own prerequisites and is ready-to-build when imported into MS Visual Studio (2022, CMAKE) on Windows.

In addition to these new features and improvements, the libdogecoin 0.1.2 update includes numerous fixes and enhancements. These include memory integrity checks, truncation fixes, and length checks for edge cases, as well as updates to the build system support (cmake and automake) and to the go and python wrappers. The CI workflows have also been updated from Ubuntu Bionic to Focal (LTS), and many QA additions have been made.

The release of libdogecoin 0.1.2 was made possible thanks to contributions from many developers, including new contributors like edtubbs, nooperation, qlpqlp, nformant1, quackduck, and just-an-dev. The team is already working on new inclusions for the next release, libdogecoin 0.1.3, so it seems that the future is bright for the Dogecoin Foundation and its community of developers and users.

Overall, the libdogecoin 0.1.2 update is a significant step forward for the Dogecoin community, and it will no doubt be welcomed by anyone who is interested in using or developing with this popular cryptocurrency. With its new features and enhancements, libdogecoin is sure to continue to be a major player in the world of cryptocurrency for years to come.
