[0.5.0] - 2021-03-12

This release introduces support for remote pinning.

All IPFS services (pubsub, p2p) are now part of the application’s services graph (the application is now designed as a graph of services, you can view the graph in the Settings workspace).


  • Use go-ipfs version: 0.8.0
  • Use PyQt version: 5.15.2
  • Use PyQtWebEngine version: 5.15.2
  • Support for remote pinning services (yay!)
    • Configure your RPS from the settings (tested with Pinata)
    • From the PIN object buttons (blue pin) you can choose to pin with a remote service or to your IPFS node
    • Add a status icon for remote pinning (basic for now)
  • Add a workspace action to view the application’s services graph (you need graphviz installed for this to work)
  • Add coroutines to load services dynamically from the services Python package


  • Support for mkdocs themes (bootswatch) for your dwebsites (darkly is the default)
  • Easier to publish/unpublish websites, dynamic content … on your DID
  • Easier to create and publish a markdown website
  • QA toolbar: modernize, should now support large number of items
  • Use a dock instead of a status bar
  • MFS: recursive collapse when double-clicking an already-expanded directory
  • Pubsub services are now part of the services tree
  • P2P services (like the DIDauth service) are now part of the services tree


  • Fix mkdocs website creation on non-Linux platforms
  • Focus bug in the markdown editor
