How does the keypool feature work and why is it safer?

This gives a bit of info: http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1414.0

Among other things, a key pool means that you are more likely to be able to recover your wallet from an older backup.

Previously, this scenario
  • send some money
  • lost your wallet
  • restore from older backup

might result in you losing all your bitcoins, even the ones you did not send.

No, it is not correct. It should be:
  • send some money
  • be sure got it
  • close Bitcoin
  • backup wallet
  • send some money
  • ...
  • send some money
  • lost your wallet
  • restore from older backup

No, you only need one send -- with one change transaction -- to create a problem.

Yes. I just wanna say that user should backup wallet only after he/she got at least one transaction in 0.3.14.

In this scenario:
  • backup wallet
  • send some money
  • keypool created
  • lost your wallet
  • restore from older backup
user will lose money in 0.3.14 too.

Added: the transaction is not required, enough to request a new address once and the pool will be created.

Feature request for 0.3.14.1.

I don't know how it happened, but I just clicked Send button twice.
And I made two transactions instead of one. Send button should be
disabled if I click it and enabled again if Send Coins form appeared...

I really do not know why Payment Sent window did not protect me.

You must have a fast finger :-)

Hope it wasn't a big problem.

Satoshi, could you tell me of what revision is this version ?

I tried diff-ing the files (from SVN and from the binary package with sources), but there seems to be some kind of binary differences in the files, and they are marked as different when doing directory compare, but diff software cannot pinpoint what are the exact differences !!

That is the weirdest thing i have seen in a long time.
Perhaps the files from the package are encoded in UTF-8, UTF-16 or something ? In SVN, they are noticeably smaller.

SVN has Unix line endings, while the source in the packages has Windows line endings. The files are otherwise exactly the same.
