We updated the translations and fixed two serious-enough-to-be-showstopper bugs, and 0.6 release candidate 6 is available at:
  https://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.6.0/

The two bugs (both caused by changes between release candidates 4 and 5, of course!) were:

1. Creating over a gigabyte of transaction logs during initial blockchain download. You should now see both a fast download and no more than 120MB of log files created.

2. A few people upgrading from previous releases couldn't get past the 'loading addr.dat' phase of startup.

I hope to repackage this as the final 0.6.0 release tomorrow; if you can help sanity test, please do!

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

Tested with no problems on OS X 10.7, Ubuntu 11.10, and Debian Unstable.  Did in place upgrades and full blockchain redownloads.

Was I helpful?  1TwmzX1wBxNF2qtAJRhdKmi2WyLZ5VHRs

Hello,

tested on slackware64-current (well almost current, have not installed the latest glibc upgrades)

I am always building from source, so the first thing I noticed is that it doesn't compile with berkleydb-4.6 anymore, older 0.6rc worked.
Code:
src/db.cpp: In constructor 'CDB::CDB(const char*, const char*)':
src/db.cpp:97:19: error: 'class DbEnv' has no member named 'log_set_config'
src/db.cpp:97:34: error: 'DB_LOG_AUTO_REMOVE' was not declared in this scope
make: *** [build/db.o] Error 1
After google it seems "log_set_config" was added in berkleydb-4.7, upgrading berkleydb to 4.8.30 solved that.

Everything else seems to work so far.

Currently works as expected on Win7 Smiley, made no strange observations!

Thanks for the help sanity testing, I've repackaged the rc6 bits as version 0.6.0.

Ran it in both Win 7 x86 and x64, tried downloading the blockchain and sending 1 btc to each and sending back, working so far.  Cheesy Will try with a couple of intended crashes and see how it holds up later.

Works great on my home machine (Arch linux) and also as (slightly patched) daemon on bitcoinmonitor.net since it's available. No problems so far  Grin And I'm impressed at the blockchain download speedup.

I know that the final version is already out, but I would like to point at wrong translation in Slovak localization.
There is "Preklady" which means Translations instead of "Transakcie" which means Transactions in the top panel. Issue is already fixed on transifex and I want to make sure it will be updated in next release.
It is very confusing.
