Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind version 0.8.1 is now available from:
  http://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.8.1/

This is a maintenance release that adds a new network rule to avoid
a chain-forking incompatibility with versions 0.7.2 and earlier.

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 are upgrading from version 0.7.2 or earlier, the first time you
run 0.8.1 your blockchain files will be re-indexed, which will take
anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours, depending on the speed of
your machine.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

for those of us already on 0.8 who mine but don't tweak around with tx construction, do we need to upgrade?

This.

For those of us who run full 0.8.0 nodes, who either don't mine or only pool mine, is 0.8.1 a necessary step up, and if so why? And .. if not can we get an official blessing for our laziness? ;3

No; the only 0.8 users who should upgrade are miners who are creating blocks themselves (mining pool operators, solo miners, or people using p2pool).

Big merchants/services/exchanges who want to be as certain as possible they don't end up on the wrong side of a blockchain fork should also upgrade, although I think the risk of that happening if they keep running 0.8.0 is small.

Many thanks for your diligence. Some in userspace tend to forget that would be no Bitcoin but for the efforts and cooperation of the development and mining communities.

I'd like to update, but for me the coincontrol version has become an essential feature for a better control of privacy.
So I'm stuck with the DB_CONFIG workaround until this feature gets picked up by the devs Sad

Armory will allow this and can be integrated with 0.8.1

Agreed. Fast work and much more helpful than the "contributions" made by the authors of the anti-dev threads.

Raw transactions can do everything coin control can, just make sure you include your change as an output.

Who maintains this PPA anyway? Is there a way we can verify the .debs from the normal packages just to be 100% safe?

Is it possible to run the linux bitcoin client 100% portably off a flash drive?

Even if it does, you're still OK.  0.8.0 or better is fine.

The only people that 0.8.0 vs 0.8.1 makes a difference for are the large mining pool operators (not the members) or large solo miners.  Those folks already have it under control.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

Unless bitcoin.org has been comprismised, we're fine since they advertise the PPA.

Bluematt does, he's a contributed a lot to bitcoin development.

Should be possible to run of a flash drive, IDK why you would though.
