 Branches here:

  7
+* monitorreceived : Implements monitortransaction/monitorblocks/gettransaction/getblock RPC commands.
7 8

8 9

-These branches operate on the TEST network:
11  
-
12  
-* svnTEST : just like 'svn' (no additional features), but patched to operate on the TEST network.
13  
-* master : runs on the TEST-network with any of what I think are "production-ready" features.
14

-Important changes on the master branch are:
16  
-
17  
-* Listen port is 18333 (instead of 8333).  Uses 18332 for JSON-RPC (instead of 8332).
18  
-* Uses irc.lfnet.org channel #bitcoinTEST  for bootstrapping.
19  
-* Never tries to connect to "well known" nodes for bootstrapping.
20  
-* Uses bitcoinTEST for the default data directory (e.g. ~/.bitcoinTEST on Linux, %APPDATA%/BitcoinTEST on Windows, etc)
21  
-* Uses a different ADDRESSVERSION for Bitcoin Addresses (0xff instead of 0x0), so you can't screw up copying and pasting Bitcoin addresses (if you try to use a TEST address on the production system it will tell you it's invalid; you can, however, lose TESTcoins by trying to send them to a valid production address)
22  
-* Has a brand-new block chain (with a different genesis block)
23  
-* Initial difficulty is 4 times easier than production Bitcoin
24  
-* protocol message header bytes are { 0xfa, 0xbf, 0xb5, 0xda } instead of { 0xf9, 0xbe, 0xb4, 0xd9 }
  10
+* master : All of the above, merged together.
