It's been a while, and can't see anything on the Bitcoin Foundation's blog about it.  Any idea when it's getting released?  And is it 100% confirmed we'll be able to store up to 80 bytes of data in a transaction?  That would be a god-send for us.

Looks like headers-only block downloading has missed this release, as well as maaku's blockchain pruning (unless I'm reading the release notes wrong). Also missing the gmaxwell IP privacy change? And BIP32 HD wallets? Or this kilobyte rounding change to the tx fee logic?

Still a sterling feature/fix list, it would be interesting to see the beginnings of people using Payments Protocol (I'm guessing we can expect this first from Bitpay and Coinbase, but anything's possible). People have been crying out for CoinControl for so long, glad this is now part of the main (core?) client.

Re: Reject dust amounts during validation

This presumably makes dust inputs unpsendable (indeed, not recognised as part of the wallet balance). But they remain in the blockchain. so this is preventing their use until some future point when dust threshold is lowered? Is dust still considered <= 0.0000543 ?

maaku isn't implementing pruning; he's implementing UTXO commitments, a very different technology that isn't directly related to pruning. (whether or not UTXO commitments are a good thing is debatable; my MMR TXO commitments are another option that many argue has better scalability)

I've actually been hired by Litecoin to get pruning implemented, among other things, but doing so is dependent on headers-only block downloading.

Dust inputs are always spendable and are recognized as part of a wallet balance. What isn't allowed is creating new ones, although much of the mining hashing power hasn't decided to adopt that change and still allows the creation of dust.

Don't know where I got that idea then... could bitcoin benefit from your work on litecoin, once litecoin's benefited from (sipa's?) work on the headers-only/parallel block downloading?

Absolutely; the litecoin and bitcoin code-bases are essentially identical.

Trying to build it, what's "protoc"? How do I satisfy the absence of it?

Edit: figured out the protoc part

./configure is happy apart from missing protoc, as well as a few "no" answers. It creates the makefile though. Not really sure what the issue(s) is/are. I have all the dependencies now, it's maybe just gcc configuration?

protoc is part of Google's protocol buffers. You need it for the payment protocol which is part of 0.9.

I've also been hired to do some work on pruning, but this is wholly dependent on sipa's headers-first branch getting finished & tested.

I'm an independent developer working on bitcoin-core, making my living off community donations.

Yes, I managed to find that out (protoc is protocol buffers compiler). Still having build problems, I wrongly assumed ./configure doesn't produce a makefile if it's environment tests aren't satisfied.

Was kind of looking forward to testing out the headers-first production code in this release, but these big changes obviously shouldn't be rushed.

Anyone got any compilation advice? As I said, makefile is created by ./configure, all warnings eliminated. Various "no"s in the configure script output, but at least some of these sound like a good thing (I know I'm not wanting to cross-compile, and I know I'm not wanting to compile objective C).

Any help at all would be cool.

I haven’t heard anything about this at Bitcoin Daily. But I think the v0.9 would be a good thing for all bitcoin users.

Maybe they forgot to update the site, but looks like 0.8.6 is still the officially released version.  Instead of playing around with a beta version, I think I'll just hang tight, and wait for the core devel team to approve 0.9.0 for public release. Smiley

Can I ask you to look at my issue compiling the 0.9 source? The makefile is generated, so it can't be missing library dependencies. I'm thinking maybe disk permissions or compiler config, but not certain. Makefile output in this thread, a few posts up

I've been running it on Ubuntu too - 13.10  though vs 13.04 - without a problem (since last weekend-ish, forget exactly when I updated it).

I didn't see anything obvious from what you posted that would cause an issue.

Strange, that's my interpretation, although I'm not a programmer, I just know how to research and read instructions!

Just tried chmod 777 -R <source code directory>

Didn't work either. Tried 'sudo make' out of desperation, wasn't expecting it to work anyway (although I've long since realised that trying something illogical doesn't mean that it wasn't the problem all along Cheesy)

Compiler options for gcc or g++ is the only other thing left over, if that's not it I cannot imagine the problem. I've not had any problems on this environment before, but that was completely different (python building Armory)
