I have just finalized porting BitcoinQt to build using libcoin as its basic crypto library.

You can find the project at:


It is based on the latest 0.6 branch of BitcoinQt.

There are a few things not yet ported:
* update the splash text while loading
* some of the globals have not found a replacement (see optionmodel for details on this)
* UPnP - this awaits the similar functionality in libcoin
* Proxy support - same...

To build libcoinqt you need to first build libcoin, then build libcoinqt using qmake or Qt Creator.

Note: I have only tested on MacOSX - more tests and features next week.

Have a nice weekend!
