Similar to previous releases, this PR adds the following two new pages to the site:

  • A new page with release notes from Bitcoin Core source tree (verbatim except for a Markdown formatting change described below)
  • A new blog post announcing the release and describing some of its many improvements. Feedback appreciated. Preview

Todo

Edit 2016-08-22: If 0.13.0 is released on August 23rd, then both of the todos below are done.

  • Update dates in this PR to the actual release date
    • _posts/en/posts/2016-08-23-release-0-13-0.md should have its filename and the permalink field in its YAML header changed to the actual release date
    • _posts/en/releases/2016-08-23-release-0.13.0.md should have its filename changed to the actual release date
  • If necessary, update _posts/en/releases/2016-08-23-release-0.13.0.md to the current release notes. It is currently on bitcoin/bitcoin@a402396
    • If you update, you can just paste the raw contents of the release notes from the Bitcoin Core source tree into the file below the YAML header. After doing that you need to make the following substitution over the whole file to fix a difference between GitHub-flavor Markdown and whatever we use on BitcoinCore.org: s/- #/- \\#/

I'll try to keep on top of both of the above todos so that this stays ready for merge when 0.13.0 is released.

Release 0.13.0: Add release notes and announcement blog post
- New page with release notes from Bitcoin Core source tree

Pushed commit 7514929 which I believe resolves all feedback from @sipa and @instagibbs . Also pushed commit 10bb8e2 which updates the 0.13.0 release notes to the same content as bitcoin/bitcoin@a402396 .

I also rendered the page locally and verified that all reference-style links ([text][reference]) were correctly rendered into hyperlinks.

Thanks for the reviews!

ACK the HD wallet part. The only thing that's missing is the possible xpriv export over dumpwallet, but not urgently required.

I think this should be ready to go. Filenames and metadata have been updated to assume a release date of 2016-08-23 UTC, and I've tried to address the most recent feedback.

ACK from me.

Once the announcement is made I would also like to add the signed PGP release announcement both to the website, and linked to the ML. I can do that post merge.
