Java Web Start dumped

We got some feedback that a (not so new) Java version pops up security warnings every time the Secure Wallet Deskop Edition tool is started. We agree that this is very annoying. Also, the technology used for this tool (Java Web Start) was not sufficient for our goal: we wanted to have a code that does not contain any platform-specific solution but still runs in all major platforms.

After analyzing the issues we decided that we won’t continue releasing more versions of the Java Web Start solution, we will switch to the regular, install-once-run-as-you-want pattern. In this case we’ll release software versions for the major platforms (Windows and Mac, for the time beeing) that can be installed the usual way and started without warnings.

There is a remaining task before we do the switch: the application should check if there is a new version of the software. Once this is done, we will start releasing Secure Wallet Desktop Edition.
