Farewell, Generate Coins. You were a fine menu item in the days of Low Difficulty, before these dark days of ArtForz, Deepbit, and slush. You shall be missed.

For the next release, it would be nice if the minimum number of decimal places displayed is either increased to 3, or decreased to 0.

And the minimum transaction amount is reduced too. Very nice.

But how does that work? I thought is was a protocol rule, not just something the official program refused to do. Will all older nodes ignore < 0.01 transactions?

Is there a command line option to generate?

I know I'll win the lottery first, but I still like running one core of my quad on the off chance that I'll get lucky.

It is the simply the default.  It will not come into effect until most miners upgrade to 0.3.22.

Yes.  But if you're CPU mining, you want to use this or this instead of the slower bitcoin CPU miner.

So small transactions have always been valid, it's just that most miners have refused to include them in their blocks?

Correct.  As long as the block passes basic verification tests, miners are free to choose what is included in their blocks (or not).

How about the fee schedule and the block size limit? Are those also just recommendations to miners or do they make blocks invalid?

As a side note, this was built with wx 2.9.1 + a small patch to allow the gui to show up on Ubuntu  11.04/other GTK3 stuff.
Though it shows up, it does not appear to fully work yet, with some images missing from buttons in the UI.
Well that appears to only be an issue when running the binary for the wrong platform (or maybe it always happens on the 32-bit one, did it have a problem?) also not true, it looks fine...Im just being thick.

Version 0.3.22 highlights:

- add -port option for P2P port

How much trouble would it be to service connections over multiple ports simultaneously?  It would be nice to use an innocuous port like 515 to obscure communications with certain parts of the network while also retaining connection with the vast majority of peers on 8333.

You could, a. run two nodes or b. set your router to forward both ports to the same internal port + log into the irc server with port 515 and 8333 on its nick or make a client which does that plus listens on both ports.

No OSX builds currently, but you are welcome to build from git yourself.
