Namecoin is a decentralized key/value storage system with integrated currency based on Bitcoin technology. It is being used as a decentralized DNS system (.bit) and has the potential for a ton of other things like a web of trust, voting, personal id, bonds, etc.. More here: http://namecoin.info http://dot-bit.org

Like Bitcoin means freedom for money Namecoin means freedom for information.

Namecoin with GUI (Namecoin-Qt) vQ.3.71c
A small fix concerning the format of registered .bit domains.

A severe bug has been found in the name verification code.
Do NOT buy names from anybody you don't trust 100% until it is fixed.

Out now: Namecoin-Qt & daemon with the name enforcing bug fixed.

Github: https://github.com/namecoinq/namecoinq/tree/vQ.3.72

Source archive: https://github.com/namecoinq/namecoinq/archive/vQ.3.72.zip
sha256: 7a47611cd4dff27fbf64ccff9ef524ec33046993a2e9cb3efcb978ef1077d5dc

Windows binary: http://namecoin.info/files/namecoin_win_vQ.3.72.zip
sha256: 462bb3f71780a22da11c69589410a98227c429821391a9389aea45ef046be58c  

This is what the fixed version will do:
* the name database is rebuild enforcing strict ownership of names
   --> if you install this version you can once again trust the key-value pairs 100%
      
* to retain compatibility bad name operations are allowed in blocks for a while but are completely ignored
    
* after block 150k bad transactions are disallowed in blocks
   --> this is a potential hard fork so everybody needs to have updated by then

Thanks to:
libcoin of kraken.com for finding and reporting the bug and also for helping with the fix.
thecoder and snailbrain for the fix.
khal and everyone else verifying, testing and supplying patches.
all donators and moral supporters.

Do not use Namecoin with the (uncommon) option "rpcssl=1" (this is to use rpc over ssl) as it is affected by the Heartbleed openSSL bug. See http://heartbleed.com/ and http://forum.namecoin.info/viewtopic.php?p=10775#p10775
If you only use Namecoin locally and did not change your config file you should not be affected.
