Bitcoin version 0.7.1 is now available from:
  http://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.7.1/

This is a bug-fix minor release.

Please report bugs using the issue tracker at github:
  https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues

Project source code is hosted at github; you can get
source-only tarballs/zipballs directly from there:
  https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/tarball/v0.7.1  # .tar.gz
  https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/zipball/v0.7.1  # .zip

Ubuntu Linux users can use the "Personal Package Archive" (PPA)
maintained by Matt Corallo to automatically keep
up-to-date.  Just type:
  sudo apt-add-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
  sudo apt-get update
in your terminal, then install the bitcoin-qt package:
  sudo apt-get install bitcoin-qt

KNOWN ISSUES
------------

Mac OSX 10.5 is no longer supported.

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).

If you were running on Linux with a version that might have been compiled
with a different version of Berkeley DB (for example, if you were using an
Ubuntu PPA version), then run the old version again with the -detachdb
argument and shut it down; if you do not, then the new version will not
be able to read the database files and will exit with an error.

Explanation of -detachdb (and the new "stop true" RPC command):
The Berkeley DB database library stores data in both ".dat" and
"log" files, so the database is always in a consistent state,
even in case of power failure or other sudden shutdown. The
format of the ".dat" files is portable between different
versions of Berkeley DB, but the "log" files are not-- even minor
version differences may have incompatible "log" files. The
-detachdb option moves any pending changes from the "log" files
to the "blkindex.dat" file for maximum compatibility, but makes
shutdown much slower. Note that the "wallet.dat" file is always
detached, and versions prior to 0.6.0 detached all databases
at shutdown.

New features
------------

* Added a boolean argument to the RPC 'stop' command, if true sets
  -detachdb to create standalone database .dat files before shutting down.

* -salvagewallet command-line option, which moves any existing wallet.dat
  to wallet.{timestamp}.dat and then attempts to salvage public/private
  keys and master encryption keys (if the wallet is encrypted) into
  a new wallet.dat. This should only be used if your wallet becomes
  corrupted, and is not intended to replace regular wallet backups.

* Import $DataDir/bootstrap.dat automatically, if it exists.

Dependency changes
------------------

* Qt 4.8.2 for Windows builds

* openssl 1.0.1c

Bug fixes
---------

* Clicking on a bitcoin: URI on Windows should now launch Bitcoin-Qt properly.

* When running -testnet, use RPC port 18332 by default.

* Better detection and handling of corrupt wallet.dat and blkindex.dat files.
  Previous versions would crash with a DB_RUNRECOVERY exception, this
  version detects most problems and tells you how to recover if it
  cannot recover itself.

* Fixed an uninitialized variable bug that could cause transactions to
  be reported out of order.

* Fixed a bug that could cause occasional crashes on exit.

* Warn the user that they need to create fresh wallet backups after they
  encrypt their wallet.

For people bringing up new 0.7.1 nodes, here is an unofficial torrent of bootstrap.dat:

(if you already have the blockchain, bootstrap.dat is of no use to you; see link)

When building bitcoind 0.7.0 from the Gentoo bitcoin overlay, there was a patchfile (http://luke.dashjr.org/programs/bitcoin/files/bitcoind/eligius/sendfee/0.7.0-eligius_sendfee.patch.xz) applied if the eligius USE flag was set.  This appears not to have been updated for 0.7.1.  Is this something to be concerned about?  What changes does this patch make?  I'm not mining at Eligius...currently using Eclipse, but am considering shifting back to P2Pool.

(In the meantime, I've copied the 0.7.0 ebuild to a local overlay, commented out the Eligius patch code, and gotten 0.7.1 working on Gentoo.)

The real change was adding -loadblock in 0.7.0. The only change in 0.7.1, is applying it automatically to any file called bootstrap.dat.

Using the donation link on TBF's website does not yield expected behavior. There is no error message indicating that bitcoin is already running, but no apparent action is taken by the running client.

Using the donation link on TBF's website does not yield expected behavior. There is no error message indicating that bitcoin is already running, but no apparent action is taken by the running client.

In addition, clicking on the link multiple times creates multiple instances of the bitcoin process, but the user cannot see any affects of them starting. I didn't notice until I checked process explorer and noticed them running. Also, when the client is not running, clicking the link creates a process but no gui appears at all, neither the window nor the tray icon.

This is the command line of the spawned process:

Code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Bitcoin\bitcoin-qt.exe" "bitcoin:1BTCorgHwCg6u2YSAWKgS17qUad6kHmtQW?label=Bitcoin+Foundation+Donation"

Did you use the installer for upgrading 0.7.1? What OS are you using?
Can you please start regedit.exe and post what is listed as (default) in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\bitcoin\shell\open\command.

Did you give the client time to start-up before hammering that link over and over?

Thanks,
Dia

Yes. Win7x64.
Code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Bitcoin\bitcoin-qt.exe" "%1"

I tried it with both the program running and with the program not running. In both instances, the link spawned new processes that appeared to do nothing.

Now that I check, the bitcoin program does not start up properly now. I cannot get a responsive gui.

I am experiencing some problems after upgrading from 0.6.3 to 0.7.1 on the bitcoind that I use to process pyramining deposits and payouts. It is running on Linux (OpenSuSE 11.2).

My upgrade procedure:
- stopped 0.6.3 bitcoind
- replaced binaries with 0.7.1 ones
- started 0.7.1 bitcoind

At first, I had to download again all the blockchain because for some reason it was displaying the message "WARNING: Displayed transactions may not be correct!  You may need to upgrade, or other nodes may need to upgrade.", and I didn't find out how to repair it.

After the blockchain has been downloaded, it started working as expected, but after about 20 hours, I found it hung up and unresponsive. No way to stop it or kill it, even with -9.

After a reboot it started and worked well for a couple of hours, then the same trouble appeared again.

Environment:
ATOM D2500 dual core (64bit arch), 4GB/ram, 60Gb SSD, 100mbit/s ip connectivity, OpenSuSE Linux 12.1.
wallet.dat is around 200MB in size.

Behaviour: after working normally for few hours, it freezes. Debug log displays RPC commands, but they never return any result.

I am currently downgrading to 0.6.3, I will keep an eye open to see if the issue disappears using this version.

Doing this did not improve the situation.

However, after a restart, the gui appears and is responsive. Also, the donation link works. I think you should add a reboot step in the upgrade instructions. Thanks for your help, and for another release!

@LightRider
I need to understand, when did you reboot and realized that helped? Seems a little weird to me. Perhaps there were orphan instances running, which went away after the reboot.
