Win32, Linux and source releases for bitcoin v0.3.23rc1 have been uploaded to
https://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.3.23/test/

This is another quick bugfix release, trying to deal with the influx of new bitcoin users.

Main items of note:

  • P2P connect-to-node logic changed to reduce timeout a bit.  The network saw a huge influx of new users, who do not permit incoming connections.  This change is a short-term hack, to more quickly hunt for useful P2P connections.  Better "leaf node" logic is in the works, but this should let us limp along until then.
  • Transaction fee reduced to 0.0005 for new transactions (see note below)
  • Client will relay transactions with fees as low as 0.0001 BTC (see note below)

NOTE:  There has been some fee confusion recently.  Free transactions are supported and relayed as they always have been, according to special anti-spam rules.  See https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Transaction_fees for details.

Full git changelog:

Dean Lee (1):
      Updated Chinese Simp translation

Doug Huff (3):
      Fix rfc1918 and rfc3927 compliance for ignoring non-internet-routable host
      Add common temp files to .gitignore.
      Demystify a few magic numbers.

Han Lin Yap (2):
      Added Swedish translation
      Remove unused variable

Jeff Garzik (4):
      Bump version to 0.3.23.
      Reduce minimum TX fee for new transactions, to 0.0005.
      Lower minimum relay TX fee to 0.0001 (from 0.0005) BTC.
      Add minimal release process docs.

Matt Corallo (1):
      Fix CPU Usage bug when using -nolisten and have no connections.

Nils Schneider (1):
      create keypool in LoadWallet()

Pieter Wuille (3):
      Update transactions already in the wallet when rescanning.
      Fix for small change outputs
      Faster timeout when connecting

Does this version allow opting out of the fee, whether recommended or not?

Right, I get that. But for example in 3.22 when trying to send a very low priority tx, you were forced to pay a fee. Do you now have the option to not send with a fee even though it will likely take a long time to be confirmed?

No, you have to hack the client in order to send spam.

In the future, people are considering a checkbox to avoid the recommended fee.

Can you display the full 8 decimal places in the Balance field? I don't like having a hidden amount of value left in my wallet.

Or at least 4 decimal places. 2 are not enough these days...

Why does it still say "Fee 0.01 recommended"? (under settings->options)

What you see is what you have. The full decimals will appear if you receive a transaction that has fractions of a bitcent.

This is not true. I have received several full precision deposits, the full value of which is not reflected in the balance.

Everything looks okay from here. I'm seeing my full 8 digits of precision. As others have noticed, a 0.01 transaction fee is still "recommended", but that's just cosmetic.

Another cosmetic request: given the new fee schedule, could the minimal number of decimal digits displayed be either increased to 4, or decreased to 0?
