i have a question, do I need to download the entire blockchain file in order to receive my btc into my bitcoin core wallet?
You can receive regardless of your sync state. However, if you want to be able to see and spend the Bitcoin, you will need to be synced. You can enable pruning so that the blockchain doesn't take up as much space.

No. It can and will use any previously downloaded data and your previously used wallets as it did before.

How about release version 0.13.1 downloaded from bitcoin.org.
Does it have more stable security than the 0.13.0...

Do you even know what this thread is about? The security problem isn't inherent to the client itself, but rather due to potential state-sponsored attacks on websites from which users would normally download. If you compiled 0.13.0 yourself, you would not have to deal with this risk. The same applies for 0.13.1, i.e. you should also verify the download.

Slightly off topic, my PortableApps version of the BitCoin Wallet crashed the night before last with a window telling me to update to the latest version (so, it's on topic concerning the latest version and upgrading same) I've made appeals on BCT in the past to have the PA version of BitCoin Wallet updated but they have fallen on deaf ears.

So, in light of this thread and my BTC Wallet crashing solely because it needs to be upgraded, can someone cast their eyes on this: http://portableapps.com/search/node/bitcoin

Thanks.

The official binaries includes zip versions which do not need to be installed and can be run on any computer provided that it runs the right OS. You can just set it up with a shortcut or something to have the datadir point to your USb drive.

Thanks for the info - I'll give it a go (and will back up my wallet.dat etc etc)

gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: the signature could not be verified.
Please remember that the signature file (.sig or .asc)
should be the first file given on the command line.

C:\Users\main>
That is not how GPG verify works. You need to specify the path to the signature file, not the contents of that file. Your command should be something like
Code:
gpg --verify SHA256SUMS.asc

I'm personally using Gpg4win (Windows only) and I guess almost everyone else on the forums is using the same thing : https://www.gpg4win.org/ , If you don't know much on how to use it (beside verifying) then you could check this tutorial https://www.deepdotweb.com/2013/11/11/pgp-tutorial-for-newbs-gpg4win/

I checked the output of sha256sum with the file provided by bitcoin.org and they match.
But shouldn't the site display the hash? I was just concerned with man in the middle attack.  Grin

EDIT (SOLVED)
Ok, this was replied in an earlier post by achow101:
"You can assume you have the correct binary because the signature is good. However, the warning means that you personally have not trusted this key. Ideally you would meet up with Wladimir and he would show you his ID and his key fingerprint and prove to you that he is in control of the key. However, since that isn't likely to happen, you can check who else has signed his key, and if you trust them, you can set your own trust on his key."
