As i got few requests, i'm creating a topic on the bitcoin implementation in bitdollar.

I have renamed the implementation bitdollar-bc to prevent confusion with the bitdollar protocol.

Windows binaries: http://www.bitdollar.org/download/bitdollar-bc_1.0b2_win32.zip
Source code: http://www.bitdollar.org/download/bitdollar-bc_1.0b2_src.zip

Any questions are welcome.

UPDATE:
beta 2 released: http://www.bitdollar.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=18

Some people asking me if bitdollar is a fork of bitcoin or not, to make things clear:
-bitdollar-bc is a reimplementation of the bitcoin protocol, it'll always follow official client(bitcoin.org) rules and won't try to fork the chain or impose changes in the protocol.
-bitdollar is another project of protocol.

Both projects are distincts.

That is clear as mud to me, sorry.

Any questions are welcome.

I've got a question. What does this mean:

Also, what is bitdollar?

Bitdollar is a p2p currency protocol similar to bitcoin, a client of the same name is currently in development.

Main difference is that bitdollar-bc have more flexibility with wallet keys management.

I use c++/qt, i'm not used to work with svn/github but i'll put project on it if there are requests.

sounds like this could be achieved with bitcoin by just adding functionality to the existing client e.g. wallet splitting/joining/rekeying

This is being implemented in the original client. Wallet functionality has already been moved to a separate class. Thus, supporting multiple wallets is possible in principe, just not supported in the UI yet.

Also the original client will switch to a Qt-based UI eventually (see my thread here).

Bitcoin Core developer [PGP] Warning: For most, coin loss is a larger risk than coin theft. A disk can die any time. Regularly back up your wallet through FileBackup Wallet to an external storage or the (encrypted!) cloud. Use a separate offline wallet for storing larger amounts.

I'm sorry. Unlike Alex, I still have clear mud in my eyes. Is it a new client using bitcoins or the same client using a new block chain? Actually there are four permutations there:

new client USES old bitcoin block chain (what we want)
new client USES new block chain (forked everything)
old client USES old bitcoin block chain (rebranding?)
old client USES new block chain (forked chain)

It's a new client that uses "old"("official") bitcoin blockchain.
