Last November, the Zcash Foundation announced our ongoing financial support of zec-qt-wallet, an open-source application created by Aditya Kulkarni. The wallet is a shielded-first, cross-platform GUI that includes a full Zcash node.
Four days ago, zec-qt-wallet was renamed to become ZecWallet. The new name debuted alongside a shiny new logo, software release, documentation website (created with help from Gareth Davies), and Twitter handle.

Accompanying the name change is a new release, v0.6.2, which also features some bug fixes.
Improvements to ZecWallet
Since we announced our partnership, ZecWallet has shipped additional features. The cleverly implemented Android app deserves special commendation. It’s a mobile companion wallet that connects seamlessly to your desktop ZecWallet node, enabling shielded transactions and memos on your Android phone.
And there’s more! The ZecWallet releases page shows how the application has broadened since November, 2018.
The Zcash Foundation is proud to fund Aditya Kulkarni’s work. We look forward to future ZecWallet development!
