had a little trouble locating 0.6.1, there it is for those like me:

liking how bitcoin client progressing overtime
few comments though, if there is backup option, shouldn't there be restore from backup option as well, and the same goes for export/import?

what does "sign message" do exactly or more specifically what it could be used for?
