Since bitmonerod and simplewallet will be named monerod and monero-wallet-cli respectively in the next release.

1 Answer 1


I think that is a good idea and something we should eventually do. Luckily creating tag synonyms is pretty easy.

Because it will take a while before people become accustomed to the new names I see no reason to rush. We can allow both synonyms for some period of time before considering merging the old tags into the new ones.

  • Did you create a synonym, yet?

    @5chdn Okay I just created/suggested both the monero-wallet-cli and monerod synonyms

  • Would "wallet-cli" make a better tag than "monero-wallet-cli" as a replacement for simplewallet?

    While I typically prefer shorter ones, this case is different since it is an existing name, and as such chopping off one part makes it confusing
