Hello and welcome to issue number seven of WTF News, our biweekly status update.
This release introduces the first interactive tests, and our first major
inconsistencies between wallets:
Some wallets have treated
eth_sign as a "sign raw data" operation, while
others implement it as "sign prefixed text", while still others disable it
eth_signTransaction is often not supported at all.
For these cases, we've chosen to test for the behaviour specified in the JSON-RPC specification and treat anything different as a test failure.
We want to expand our tests for WTF, to catch issues like last update's connection issue. To that end, if you work on a wallet that works offline (aside from the RPC provider) and want to try out WTF, get in touch with us!
