Yes.

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).

Release 0.10.0 makes use of headers-first synchronization and parallel block download (see further), the block files and databases are not backwards-compatible with older 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.

Bitcoin Core now uses ‘headers-first synchronization’. This means that we first ask peers for block headers (a total of 27 megabytes, as of December 2014) and validate those. In a second stage, when the headers have been discovered, we download the blocks. However, as we already know about the whole chain in advance, the blocks can be downloaded in parallel from all available peers.

In practice, this means a much faster and more robust synchronization. On recent hardware with a decent network link, it can be as little as 3 hours for an initial full synchronization. You may notice a slower progress in the very first few minutes, when headers are still being fetched and verified, but it should gain speed afterwards.

Yess cant wait to arrive home and try this. I was struggling to run a node, maybe if they did a good job the client is less bloated now and more people like me can run nodes.

Well, with version 0.1 synced:

$ du -h .bitcoin/
16K   .bitcoin/database
717M   .bitcoin/chainstate
48M   .bitcoin/blocks/index
33G   .bitcoin/blocks
50G   .bitcoin/

Still had the bootstrap.dat.old file in there, now it's ~34G.

1) It might, but it doesn't matter.
2( Check shorena's list: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=929353.msg10456173#msg10456173 , but again it doesn't matter that much anymore.

It will not take forever.

Anyone else is scared everytime they update? I always create 3 more backups of the wallet just in case.

Of course. It's part of "being your own bank".

Backing up is a good thing.

Since v0.10 is rolled, it will give any advantage to take chain from torrent?

Maybe that your blocks will be more in order? Just getting 0.10.0 should be enough though, it is faster than loading the torrent and if you want to transfer blocks via USB stick, you don't need the torrent for that anyways.

AFIK when chain is loaded and UTXO database is created and updated every block, daemon is not looking to old data from chain, so order doesn't matter much.
Only when RPC getblock happen or another node ask about old data.

Actually this is not correct. I don't know why nobody replied to the post. Version 0.10.0 did help a lot in increasing the speed, but downloading the whole blockchain is still faster via torrent. Pretty much anything is faster using torrents if there are enough seeders especially if you have a very high speed.
Syncing from the begging still takes quite some time; pruning is needed.

Update: Shorena you make a valid point. There is no need for me to make further unnecessary posts here.

Pretty much anything is faster using torrents if there are enough seeders especially if you have a very high speed.

Under the assumption that you do not have horrible peers when connected, using the torrent slows you down. The torrent is just a data download and the data has to be verified. With 0.10. you can download from several sources at once and should be able to max our your connection same as with a torrent, but the machine can verify the blocks at the same time. With the torrent you would have to download first and verify later. Thus its typically faster to use the client. As with everything it depends on your specific situation and environment if this is true or not obviously.
