Bitcoin v0.3.24 release candidate #1 is now available for download at
https://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.3.24/test/

This is another bug fix release.  We had hoped to have wallet encryption ready for release, but more urgent fixes for existing clients were needed.  Wallet encryption is ready for testing at https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/352 for the git-savvy, and -hopefully- will follow shortly in the next release, v0.4.

Notable fixes in v0.3.24:

F1) Block downloads were failing or taking unreasonable amounts of time to complete, because the increased size of the block chain was bumping up against some earlier buffer-size DoS limits.
F2) Fix crash caused by loss/lack of network connection.

Notable changes in v0.3.24:
C1) DNS seeding enabled by default.
C2) UPNP enabled by default in the GUI client.  The percentage of bitcoin clients that accept incoming connections is quite small, and that is a problem.  This should help.  bitcoind, and unofficial builds, are unchanged (though we encourage use of "-upnp" and port forwarding to help the network!)
C3) Initial unit testing framework.  Bitcoin sorely needs automated tests, and this is a beginning.  Contributions welcome.
C4) Internal wallet code cleanup.  While invisible to an end user, this change provides the basis for v0.4's wallet encryption.

I'm few releases behind and got some questions:

What's the best way to do the upgrade?  
Will it require to re-download blockchain and if so how would I go around that?  
Will the new release update my current wallet in regards to C4 change?

I'm on a Mac, and I just replace the old app with the new one.  No re-download.  Don't know what the C4 change is  .Smiley

C4) Internal wallet code cleanup.  While invisible to an end user, this change provides the basis for v0.4's wallet encryption.

I want to make sure I am using the new updated client and not the old one installed on my computer.

I installed the new one, but when I open it and click on "help" in the toolbar and go to "About", I see:

"Bitcoin version 0.3.23-beta"


Was this forgotten, and simply not changed? Or am I just using the old version still and I installed the new new one wrong or something?

Buy a TREZOR! Premier BTC hardware wallet. If you're reading this, you should probably buy one if you don't already have one. You'll thank me later.

still wondering about the correct upgrade procedure (for linux?)...

install 0.3.24, replace wallet.dat with the wallet.dat from the old (0.3.23) client, and -rescan?

or install 0.3.24, get a receiving address, and transfer all Bitcoin via the blockchain from old client to new?

For my casual wallet I always use the current git version. I never had to reload the blockchain or anything.

There is no upgrade procedure but replacing the old version with the new one.

The wallet.dat file has always been backward-compatible, and usually also forward-compatible. You should be able to install a new version without doing anything special. Always make sure you have a backup though.

Will the new release update my current wallet in regards to C4 change?

The on-disk wallet format did not change, only the code to manage it did.

That's good to know. Thanks


Regarding question about upgrade I should have mentioned Windows in my earlier post.   
If I run install will the client update itself seamlessly or am I required to move wallet away and then replace new one with my wallet.dat and I would prefer not to re-scan anything if that's possible with installing upgrade.  As I've said before I'm few releases behind and haven't done any upgrading, being reluctant for the reason that I haven't seen clear instructions how to handle properly upgrades whether I should be doing anything more than just backing up my wallet or is it seamless process of simply running install exe.

Is this version worth it for me to upgrade from 3.20beta?

Does it support true zero-fee transactions? like in 3.20.

Bitcoin v0.3.24 release candidate #1 is now available for download at
https://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.3.24/test/

Great news! Congrats.

Wallet encryption is ready for testing at https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/352 for the git-savvy, and -hopefully- will follow shortly in the next release, v0.4.

Even better news.

From github: "Although encryption of private keys in memory can be very useful on
desktop systems (as some small amount of protection against stupid viruses), on

Is this because the connection between client/app and the RPC server is in plaintext? Is there a forum discussion on the encrypted wallet implementation?

Gavin Andresen (1):
      Boost unit-testing framework.     make -f makefile.{unix,osx,mingw} test_b

Great. I expect unit testing will help bring more developers to the core project.

It is because if someone manages to get access to a server's wallet.dat file, they are quite likely to be able to dump the passphrase from memory as well.

It's completely seamless. Just be sure to back up your wallet, which you should be doing anyway.

I've tested the client on older systems to check two issues I encountered.

Original posts:
- http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=24841.msg308484#msg308484
- http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=24266.msg302002#msg302002


The client launches now again fine in Windows 2000 like pre-0.3.21 versions. For fun I also tried Windows 98, but (as expected) it won't work.

The issue with the "copied background" still exists (see http://picpaste.com/btc-VIcsfQft.png). It's merely a cosmetic problem and doesn't really impact the usage of the client at all. Just guessing here: maybe there's no default color/background set for that area?

Apart from that, it looks just fine. No crash during my test.

Are you going to add in other people's updates to the client?

Sounds like a good idea to me.
