This is a hotfix release mainly covering following issues:

- Fix incorrect display of account signing status: [1](https://github.com/bisq-network/bisq/pull/3514), [2](https://github.com/bisq-network/bisq/pull/3512)
- [Remove unnecessary restriction for sell offers](https://github.com/bisq-network/bisq/pull/3518)

Here are the release notes from v1.2.0:

## Release notes
Bisq v1.2 ships several significant updates. A [new trade protocol](https://docs.bisq.network/trading-rules) moves to 2-of-2 multisig escrows for deposit funds, dispute resolution is overhauled to be more private and scalable, and [account signing](https://docs.bisq.network/payment-methods) removes 0.01 BTC buying limits for risky payment methods in major markets.

**If you are updating from a previous version of Bisq, please make sure to do the following before updating to v1.2:**

* complete all trades
* complete all disputes
* disable open offers (at "Portfolio/My Open Offers")

Updating to v1.2 with unfinished trades and disputes will require an arbitrator to intervene and manually make payouts. Downgrading back to v1.1.7 to rectify the situation will not be possible, so please double-check before updating.

## Verification

Url of the signing key (Christoph Atteneder): https://bisq.network/pubkey/29CDFD3B.asc
Full fingerprint: `CB36 D7D2 EBB2 E35D 9B75  500B CD5D C1C5 29CD FD3B`

Import the key:
`curl https://bisq.network/pubkey/29CDFD3B.asc | gpg --import`
GPG prints a confusion warning: "This key is not certified with a trusted signature!" - See https://serverfault.com/questions/569911/how-to-verify-an-imported-gpg-key for background information what it means.

How to verify signatures?
`gpg --digest-algo SHA256 --verify BINARY{.asc*,}`
Replace BINARY with the file you downloaded (e.g. Bisq-1.2.1.dmg)

Verify jar file inside binary:
You can verify on OSX the jar file with:
`shasum -a256 [PATH TO BISQ APP]/Bisq.app/Contents/Java/Bisq-1.2.1.jar`
The output need to match the value from the Bisq-1.2.1.jar.txt file.

## Known issues with installation 

### Windows:

There is a known issue with Anti Virus software. We got several reports from users running into different problems. Either the AV software blocks Bisq or Tor, delete files in the data directory [2] or app directory [1]) or cause such a long delay at startup that Tor gets terminated and a file remains locked which can cause that Bisq cannot be started afterwards. To resolve that you need to restart Windows then the lock get released. We are working on solutions to fix those issues.

If you use Crypto currencies on your Windows system be aware that Windows is much more vulnerable to malware than Linux or OSX. Consider to use a dedicated non-Windows system when dealing with cryptocurrencies.

[1] Application directory (contains application installation files):

[2] Data directory (contains all Bisq data including wallet):
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Bisq\btc_mainnet\tor (you can delete everything except the hiddenservice directory)

### Linux:

Hint for Debian users:
If you have problems starting Bisq on Debian use: `/opt/Bisq/Bisq`

If your Linux distro does not support .deb files please follow this instruction:
cd ~/Downloads  
mkdir tmp  
cd tmp   
ar x ../Bisq-64bit-1.2.1.deb  
sudo tar Jxvf data.tar.xz  
sudo cp -rp opt/Bisq /opt/
That instruction is not tested on many different distros. If you encounter problems please report it in a Github issue so we can improve it. 

## Cleanup tool for saved trades that failed market price check

With this release we are also shipping a cleanup tool (Bisq-cleanup-trades*). It will remove corrupt trade entries added due to bug https://github.com/bisq-network/bisq/issues/2924. Install and run once, it will shut down automatically, then install version 1.2.1 or later. You can verify the binary the same way as you do with the Bisq application.
