Just wondering how many people are using what versions. Also, please note that I intend to drop support for (only) the 0.5.0.x branch when 0.6.0 is released, so if you're using that please upgrade to 0.5.3.1. If you're using a broken or insecure version, please comment on this thread why. I would also appreciate comments on how long you intend to use which versions. Thanks!

Edit: If you run git master, that counts as 0.6 RCs

0.4.4/0.4.5rc include the old wxBitcoin client still, though it's not maintained.

I have liked neither wxBitcoin nor bitcoin-qt, so I chose the lesser of 2 evils and went with QT because of more features.

The only GUI version of Bitcoin I use is 0.3.15 because I usually don't need the features in the newer versions, and AFAIK none of the security problems apply to me. Maybe I'll upgrade if I ever have to download the blockchain from 0 again.

For a long time I used 0.3.19.2 for all of my bitcoind installations, but I needed the faster blockchain downloading and sendmany, so I'm now using the latest 0.5.x version.

0.3.15 must have a lot of security issues by now... You shouldn't need to redownload the blockchain with any of the new versions, but even if you did, there's been fixes to drastically improve the download speed too.

Probably a lot of DoS stuff, but I -connect directly to a trusted node, so that doesn't matter so much. I don't know of any other serious security bugs.

0.4.1 running on my computer. And I did not see any security problems to it at all. The vulnerable was Qt version. The wallet encryption is a joke in all versions.

Minor security issues in 0.4.1:
  • Possible to crash with an incoming p2p connection
  • Doesn't verify integrity of private keys
  • No BIP30 or BIP16 support
  • Multiple unlimited-memory-growth DDoS vulnerabilities

Semi-important bugs:
  • Memory leaks
  • Deadlocks (client freezes)
  • UPnP/router issues
  • Testnet protocol incompatibilities

Thank's Luke for pointing out. I don't read changelogs for RC builds, so these skipped me. Not so bad at all.
