Who has the source code of the first version of Bitcoin (0.1), as released in February 2009?
The oldest source tarball on Sourceforge is 0.2.0.
The first commit in the GitHub repo is 0.1.5 alpha.


Edit: As per my post below:
Hal sent me two archives of version 0.1.0 (a rar, and a tgz, both of the same source tree). I uploaded them to my site:

Maybe you can ask Hal Finney if he has a copy, he was a Sourceforge developer on the project at the time of the genesis block, and before the announcement of v0.1.0's release.

Note that versions before 0.2.10 no longer work.

I found 0.1.3 through twobitcoin's linked thread. It purportedly is the same source tarball as 0.1.0, so I have what I needed. Thanks.

I recently found the 0.1 source code on one of my computers. I can send it if you want it, but I'm pretty severely disabled these days, so it may take me a while to respond.

Me too, I can host it. It would be interesting to see if indeed 0.1.0 = 0.1.3 which seems improbable (just putting "v0.1.3" in the comments would change the hash). Apparently 0.1.2 was released with a bug that needed reversion, but it's hard to write Bitcoin history with files (and an entire forum) disappearing from sourceforge. I don't think there will be anything interesting in the code, like the "(c) James L. Smith aka Satoshi" you are seeking.

bitcoin.org should attempt to locate, archive, and host the older versions for posterity.

I agree, would be nice to see.

I first heard about Bitcoin on Freenet. There still might exist Freepages with old files.

I've got them up too:

md5: 9a73e0826d5c069091600ca295c6d224 *bitcoin-0.1.3.rar

What is more annoying is that all Bitcoin releases before 0.3.24 were just deleted from sourceforge. Why?? Here's Linux 1.0.0 from 1994, they aren't trying to erase their history...

If I was up to something fishy, I would delete either the good versions, or bad ones depending on circumstances.

That's source code for the kernel, right?

I removed the old binary releases from SourceForge because it was getting annoying to find things like testnet-in-a-box in that very long list, and also getting hard to see what the latest release was. And with our gitian reproducible build process, the windows/linux binaries for recent releases are deterministically reproducible from the source code.

See https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/tags  for the history back to the 0.1.5 release.  Uploading 0.1 to github is a good idea, maybe somebody who knows more about git than I do can suggest the best way to do that.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

I have a copy up, too!  This is epic!  When I started looking for the antique versions, I was not expecting to actually find them!

Thank you Hal!!!

Thank you mrb and deepceleron as well!
