Please checkout the git integration branch from:
  https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin

... and help test.  The new features that need testing are:

-nolisten : https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/11
-rescan : scan block chain for missing wallet transactions
-printtoconsole : https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/37
RPC gettransaction details : https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/24
listtransactions new features : https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/10

Bug fixes that also need testing:

-maxconnections= : https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/42
RPC listaccounts minconf : https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/27
RPC move, add time to output : https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/21
...and several improvements to --help output.

This needs more testing on Windows!  Please drop me a quick private message, email, or IRC message if you are able to do some testing.  If you find bugs, please open an issue at:
  https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues

Is there any information on what is new in this release? Any compelling reason to upgrade once the new version is released?

Code:

I am propose to add 'Build' section to build-unix.txt:

Code:
Build
-----

cd bitcoin-git
make -f makefile.unix
or
make -f makefile.unix bitcoind

You must have compiled against a newer version of Berkeley DB, and it uses a new log file format.  Try removing the ~/.bitcoin/log.* files before running the older bitcoin version.

I changed build-unix.txt as you suggested.

No.  Unless you're changing your wallet outside of bitcoin, rescanning isn't necessary.

It would be nice if the GUI had "backup wallet" and "merge backed up wallet with current wallet" options-- the "merge wallet" would need do a rescan.  Maybe next release somebody will implement those features...

It might still be nice to have a rescan button in the options somewhere. If someone who wasn't up on all this switches a wallet in from a backup or to a new machine they're going to be all  Huh Huh

If there was a "click here after you switch wallets" button that would probably save a good number of people a brief heart attack.

It shouldn't even need a click. The client should check on starting for a new wallet. I would like to see a wallet subdirectory that you could drop any number of wallet files into, and the client would recognise all of them when starting up.

Indeed that sounds much better.

I am tested only bitcoind, on debian linux 32bit AMD:

-nolisten : works

-rescan : option passed but I don't know how to test this option

-printtoconsole : works
may be add 'no detach' functionality to them for bitcoind? or as separate option

gettransaction and listtransactions : work

getbalance '*' 1 also work

-maxconnections= : work

listaccounts N ignores the N - bug confirmed

RPC move, add time to output : https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/21 - I am not checked this

Hi,

I can build the next development version, for debian (sid or wheezy) and ubuntu (natty).

What you think ?

Greetings.

The only things in my obj dir are cpu.o and sha.o

I did install wxwidgets and I'm running on Ubuntu 10.10

... and you get 'fatal error, can't create' when you try to compile bitcoin?

Sounds like your obj/ dir is not writeable by whichever user you're using to compile.
