Barring any last-minute showstopper issues, the plan is for release candidate 5 to become the official 0.6.0 release on Wednesday.

So please help look for last-minute showstopper issues:
  https://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.6.0/test/

The major changes from release candidate 4:

  • Much faster writing of blkindex.dat during initial blockchain download (by modifying the default bdb environment cache settings)
  • A new policy for wallet.dat upgrades: use the old format unless the user either uses a feature that requires an upgrade (encrypts the wallet) or explicitly requests that the wallet be upgraded using the new -upgradewallet option. New wallets will use new features (for 0.6, the only new wallet feature is compressed public keys).
  • bugfix introduced in rc4 for an assertion failure that could occur during blockchain reorganizations
  • New code for managing the addr.dat file that prevents an attacker from filling it with bogus entries.

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

Gavin, how does it feel to have the fate of millions of dollars of other people's money riding on every release?  I don't think people appreciate your diligence enough.

He calls it experimental software for a reason. We are investing at our own risk according to him.

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

The english source file was updated 8 days ago, so yes that makes sense. I'll create a pull request for the translation updates later today (if not another member of the core-dev team is quicker ^^).

Do you load up million dollar wallets in brand new releases?

Others don't either.

Since I was most interested in seeing the speedups on downloading the chain, I deleted the chain and ran 0.6 RC5. Now I'm not sure if this is normal, but I'm only getting 8 active connections. Prior to this, I was always getting 30-60 connections depending on the time of the day. uPnP Test 1.16 tool is showing that uPnP is working on my network, and uPnP is in fact enabled in the Bitcoin client.

Is this because I'm still in the initial download phase? Or did this release perhaps break uPnP support? Could someone test this out as well, please? Thanks Smiley

By the way, wonderful job on the database speedups! No more HDD grinding, and the download is already much faster. Could be even faster if I had more active connections though. It would improve my chances of finding a fast peer.

Heh. The Harddisk is still choking once it's past ~80-85%. Sad And there's still several gigabytes of free RAM that isn't being used. Perhaps the caching settings still need some tweaking?

You can use the new command-line/config option -dbcache=<N>, with N a number in megabytes. The default is 25, which should be quite good, but if you add more, speed may improve a bit still.
