Bitcoin version 0.7.2 is now available from:
  http://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.7.2

This is a bug-fix minor release.

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

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.

Bug fixes
---------

* Prevent RPC 'move' from deadlocking. This was caused by trying to lock the
  database twice.

* Fix use-after-free problems in initialization and shutdown, the latter of
  which caused Bitcoin-Qt to crash on Windows when exiting.

* Correct library linking so building on Windows natively works.

* Avoid a race condition and out-of-bounds read in block creation/mining code.

* Improve platform compatibility quirks, including fix for 100% CPU utilization
  on FreeBSD 9.

* A few minor corrections to error handling, and updated translations.

* OSX 10.5 supported again

Gavin, I swear I had your public key and can't find it. Where do you keep it so I can verify the sums signature?

PGP links are on the bitcoin.org homepage; http://bitcoin.org/gavinandresen.asc  will get it.

The source for the bitcoin.org homepage is at github, so you can get it from there, too:
  https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin.org/blob/master/gavinandresen.asc

It is also stored at the MIT pgp keyserver under email 'gavinandresen@gmail.com':

Until there is a v1.0, the bitcoin.org client is considered "beta".

No, that will be fixed in the 0.8 release.

If you think the single-send-not-randomizing-the-change-address-bug gives you significantly less privacy... well, you're probably wrong, it is easy to cluster addresses if you have the right network analysis tools. But you can workaround the bug by adding an extra output to all of your transactions (add a new receiving address and then click the 'add recipient' button in on the Send Coins tab in Bitcoin-Qt and send some coins to yourself).
