Yay! I will do it right now! Cheesy



The line 178 of the file init.cpp:
Code:
           "  -nolisten        \t  "   + _("Don't accept connections from outside") +
Should be:
Code:
           "  -nolisten        \t  "   + _("Don't accept connections from outside\n") +

i did a dirty install (running 0.3.20 installer without removing the 0.3.19 first)
and it did not crash on start up, picked up the previously downloaded block chain,
works as expected (connects to p2p, downloads blocks).

i could not test the rescan feature, did not find the "button" or menu entry in the windows gui
(i have prepared some wallet.dat files that should have received some bitcoins for this feature's test)

Will be -rescan option in GUI?
No.  Unless you're changing your wallet outside of bitcoin, rescanning isn't necessary.

ptmhd, so as you did a dirty installation - you have to remove libeay32.dll and mingwm10.dll manually.

I also did a dirty installation (are we talking about Windows? I am), and I didn't notice this problem until after I renamed these two files, and now I see the same problem after restoring them. There seems to be some "ghosting" of windows on top of the Bitcoin client. I'm not at home so I didn't get to look into it much, but it seemed strange. Maybe I just need to reboot. Anyone else getting this?

By design these files should be removed by Bitcoin 0.3.19 uninstallation.
Bitcoin 0.3.20 just does not use them (and will not uninstall these files).

Is there any benefit to running the official bitcoin software, without the generating option turned on, outside the benefit of having a wallet not controlled by somebody else (like mybitcoin)?

I've been running the Mac binary for my personal transactions for the last 24 hours without any problems at all.

I've generated lots of blocks on the new -testnet.

Version 0.3.20.01 is now at:
  https://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.3.20/

Differences with the first release candidate 0.3.20:

+ Windows built with mingw instead of Visual C++ (my fingers are crossed that fixes the rendering issue)
+ Fix for a denial-of-service attack reported in IRC
