The work on Nxt and the Nxt NRS client continues. The Nxt core developers have just sent a list of the new features which will be implemented in the upcoming 1.8 release, expected to be released in April.
Run the client wallet as a desktop application.
Until now when starting the NXT server, the user had to wait for the server to start, then open a browser and point it to http://localhost:7876 to start the browser wallet.
Starting from this release, starting the NXT server would immediately launch a desktop wallet application based on the same design of the browser wallet.
Server side component which automatically funds specific accounts based on various criteria to make sure the account owners always poses enough NXT to transact.
You can monitor Nxt, Asset or Currency.
When a monitored account balance becomes less than the threshold amount, a transfer transaction is initiated to transfer Nxt/Asset/Currency from the funding account to the monitored account.
Multiple account monitors can be active. Monitored accounts are identified by an account property. The account property must be set by the funding account owner.
Wallet home customisation
Open the wallet on a specific page or modal.
This feature enables linking into a specific page or modal of the client web wallet from an external web site or link.
For example, connecting to: http://localhost:7876#account=NXT-22222-…&modal=send_money_modal&recipient=NXT-33333
would log in as account NXT-22222 open the standard “Send Money” modal and pre-populate the recipient field with the value NXT-33333
