  http://luke.dashjr.org/programs/bitcoin/files/bitcoind-0.5.3/test/

BUG FIXES

Since 0.4.3 and 0.5.2:
  • Various compile warning fixes.
  • Updated fallback seed nodes, chosen based on uptime and version.
  • February 15, 2012 testnet difficulty calculation changes.
  • Reannounce UPnP port forwarding rules every 20 minutes, to work around routers that expire them.
  • Verify integrity of private keys in wallet file at startup.
  • Don't store completely invalid transactions in memory.
  • Recommend a secure password for bitcoind, when none is set, and increase JSON-RPC delay when a wrong password is attempted.
  • Fix incorrect memory release, which may have caused crashes.
  • Use UPnP IP in version messages when available, and never send non-routable IPs.
  • Do not attempt to create "CAddress" objects for invalid accepts.
  • Several shutdown-related fixes.
  • Various wallet locking fixes.
  • Fixed memory leaks.
  • Fixed a wrong error message when failing to get external IP from webservice.
  • New checkpoint at block 168,000.
  • A fix for a potential DoS attack.
  • BIP 30: Forbid overwriting unspent transactions with duplicates.
Just since 0.5.2:
  • Make transaction description read-only.
  • Add "About Qt" menu option to show built-in Qt About dialog.
  • Add missing "Clear all" tooltip.
  • Fix building test framework with shared boost libraries.
  • Revert to global blockchain download progress indication.
  • Minor translation/capitalization fixes.
  • Restructure credit transaction decomposition to fix issue #689.
  • Enable accessible widgets Qt module on win32, so that people with screen readers such as NVDA can make sense of it.
  • Prevent window from being shown momentarily when using -min
  • Fix Minimize to the tray instead of the taskbar.
  • Fix parsing of invalid bitcoin URIs (with bitcoin:// instead of simply bitcoin:)
  • Don't overwrite user-entered labels with ones from the address book.
  • Display a message box with help on Windows for --help
  • Don't show splash screen when -min is specified on the command line.
  • Don't show weird tooltip when last received block has a future timestamp.

Make sure you back up your wallet regularly! With Bitcoin-Qt, it needs to be backed up at least as often as every 100 transactions (both sends and receipts) or new addresses.

Error loading wallet.dat: Wallet corrupted     

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

No, i was using 0.4.2 before, and it worked fine. When i changed to 0.4.4, i got that error, and when i restored the old executable, it was working fine again. Seems like an incompatible wallet version to me.

My best guess, at this point, is that your wallet has a corrupt private key which was not properly detected in older versions. Could you check debug.log?

You did not ever use 0.6.0rc1? (I ask because that had a known and fixed bug that can cause this)

I copied 0.4.4 back, and now I'm getting a slightly different error.

Does 0.4.2 still work? This looks like blkindex.dat got corrupted somehow.

Nope, 0.4.2 doesn't work either now. Although i got it to work by deleting everything except for wallet.dat. 0.4.4 still doesn't work though.

Can we get debug.log with the original issue (ie, when 0.4.2 works)?
