These are bugfix-only releases, plus a few protocol updates.

  • Fix broken testnet mining.
  • Stop excess inventory relay during initial block download.

  • Fix default filename suffixes in GNOME save dialog. (0.5 only)
  • Make the "Send coins" tab use the configured unit type, even on the first attempt. (0.5 only)
  • Print detailed wallet loading errors to debug.log when it is corrupt.
  • Allocate exactly the amount of space needed for signing transactions, instead of a fixed 10k buffer.
  • Workaround for improbable memory access violation.
  • Check wallet's minimum version before trying to load it.
  • Remove wxBitcoin properly when installing Bitcoin-Qt over it. (Windows 0.5 only)
  • Detail reorganization information better in debug log.
  • Use a messagebox to display the error when -server is provided without configuring a RPC password. (0.5 only)
