Bitcoin Core version 0.10.1 is now available from:

https://bitcoin.org/bin/bitcoin-core-0.10.1/

This is a new minor version release, bringing bug fixes and translation
updates. It is recommended to upgrade to this version.

Please report bugs using the issue tracker at github:

https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues

Upgrading and downgrading
=========================

How to Upgrade
--------------

If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely
shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the
installer (on Windows) or just copy over /Applications/Bitcoin-Qt (on Mac) or
bitcoind/bitcoin-qt (on Linux).

Downgrade warning
------------------

Because release 0.10.0 and later makes use of headers-first synchronization and
parallel block download (see further), the block files and databases are not
backwards-compatible with pre-0.10 versions of Bitcoin Core or other software:

* Blocks will be stored on disk out of order (in the order they are
received, really), which makes it incompatible with some tools or
other programs. Reindexing using earlier versions will also not work
anymore as a result of this.

* The block index database will now hold headers for which no block is
stored on disk, which earlier versions won't support.

If you want to be able to downgrade smoothly, make a backup of your entire data
directory. Without this your node will need start syncing (or importing from
bootstrap.dat) anew afterwards. It is possible that the data from a completely
synchronised 0.10 node may be usable in older versions as-is, but this is not
supported and may break as soon as the older version attempts to reindex.

This does not affect wallet forward or backward compatibility.

Notable changes
===============

This is a minor release and hence there are no notable changes.
For the notable changes in 0.10, refer to the release notes for the
0.10.0 release at https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/v0.10.0/doc/release-notes.md

Is it recommended to delete your blockchain and download a fresh one even if it works just ok with your current one? It would be pretty annoying since it's very slow to download the whole thing, but even then, im pretty paranoid and i want a correctly working blockchain.

Great! I didn't upgrade to 0.10.0, but after no serious problems reported with 0.10.0 and these fixes I now feel the urge to do it. Smiley

I don't think so. Why should you? What I understand is that blockchain issues should only be expected when downgrading.

Great, hopefully this version will fix the problem where my Core closes randomly with no error and nothing shown in the logs.

If its reindexing its because it needs to rebuild the index from the block files in order to work properly. You can stop it by closing the client, but you wont be able to use it without it finishing first.

btw: I did not have any problem when updating.

Nah it probably won't.

You were right, had 0.10.1 close itself silently on me today.

You may upgrade since the users I have discussed it with reported no serious problems and I neither experienced such thing. If the previous version works well at you, why would you not upgrade? And if the previous version was bugged at you, the new one may solve your problems. Anyway, enjoy and feel free to write a feedback how the process went! It was just fine at me.

Hi, i'm new around here, i was wondering if using wallets that don't require downloading the whole blockchain (multibit) is less safe than Bitcoin Core.

No. SPV clients that allow you control over your private keys (like Multibit or Electrum) are for all general purposes as safe as a full node.
