Note, this is running in testnet mode to test that the SolidCoin v1 coins are working correctly for people on the new chain and also to stress test the 51% network defense algorithm in SolidCoin v2.0. It also gives time for the exchanges and pools to ensure they are working correctly with the new network.

There will be a 24 hour notice before the network resumes proper activity.

Windows Binaries (32bit and 64bit)
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/38674765/solidcoin-publicbeta-setup.exe

Linux 64 Binaries (GUI and Daemon)
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/38674765/solidcoin-publicbeta-linux64.tar.bz2

And here are some of the new features
1) CPU mining is now possible through an internal miner, which also lets you connect to pools or your own computers to form a "super hash node" . Can also set a "share" amount, so instead of solving the real target, you solve smaller targets like pools do.
2) Multi wallet support
3) The only chain not vulnerable to 51% attacks
4) Major reworkings of the RPC code. Including
* splitting up getwork into sc_getwork and sc_testwork
* adding pool like features to the client so that pools can form much easier
* performance improvements
5) Major restructuring of the old SolidCoin/BItcoin code. Multithreading deadlock issues fixed, hundreds of performance improvements added, cleaner code to work on
6) CPF . Coin protection/promotion fund. A 5% amount is added and put into a fund which will help protect the currency when it comes to price, network stability and promotion
7) Block format changes to help improve efficiency when it comes to mining and also for future chain downloading improvements
Cool Send dialog improvements. You can now see the fee in advance, and also how much balance you will have left after sending a certain amount.
9) Windows x64 builds available
10) Windows installer automatically selects 32bit or 64bit client, one download makes it easier
11) Many UI improvements
12) Move to 4 decimal points instead of 8 for better looking "numbers" and making it easier to use for average user
13) No more saving settings in wallet.dat . All settings now saved in solidcoin.conf
14) Can now mark blocks you find in the blockchain with your own unique identifier
15) Coin inflation is now somewhat tied to difficulty.

So ... where's the source code?
Anyone would be a fool to run a binary not checked by someone independent given the current uncertainty with all this SC2.0 crap.
I'd also suggest anyone running it, to do a complete port scan to check the listening ports it opens (or on linux just 'netstat -na' and look through that - mainly the LISTEN lines - compare before and after)
And also check exactly what outgoing connections it makes (or read the ... missing code)

Source code only helps if you also compile your binaries...The binaries you download could be made from difference source code. So some people are checking the source code, but mostly all just download the binaries  Grin

Yep - I do realise that (I don't download binaries)
Every coin daemon and miner I run I compiled myself from source
though I did run a few early versions of cgminer linux binaries coz I know the author well from before bitcoin

(I also change every daemon to put my name in the block-chain coinbase since it is so easy to do Cheesy)

I also do comparisons between them and the official bitcoin source - even in this case that would be useful since there will be a lot of code copied directly from bitcoin

works great for me on WinXP VM. I've copied my original wallet.dat according to instructions and I see all my solidcoins from v1 Smiley
Looking forward for real live network.

The one thing - why can't I run more than 1 thread for solo mining ?

The difficulty is more than 200 now, how do we estimate how long we can mine a Solidcoin2 coin?

Definitely getting quite a good speed boost on this vs. Tenebrix @ 12.5 Kh per thread.

I find your lack of sources disturbing.

Does someone - anyone - really believe in security though obscurity in software ?

I am of course biased, but I find lack of sources in Solidcoin beta  seriously worrisome and *wrong*.
Say what you want about premines, premined coins can't have potential to run arbitrary code on your box...

khash compared to tenebrix means absolutely nothing, the difficulty is a thousand times higher too.

Sources will be available. Intelligent people understand, that you just spread FUD because you hope that TBX doesn't die... Why should people support a CPU-currency with 7M premined coins, when there is a better alternative?  Wink

So far, there has been no indication of that.

Also, when will sources become available, when sufficient number of people install the binaries Wink ?

You had soooo much insider information in the other bashing thread. So you should have get the little piece of info about the source... or not?  Grin
