-How to Upgrade
9  
---------------
10  
-
11  
-If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait
12  
-until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older
13  
-versions), then run the installer (on Windows) or just copy over
14  
-/Applications/Bitcoin-Qt (on Mac) or bitcoind/bitcoin-qt (on Linux).
15  
-
16  
-If you were running on Linux with a version that might have been compiled
17  
-with a different version of Berkeley DB (for example, if you were using an
18  
-Ubuntu PPA version), then run the old version again with the -detachdb
19  
-argument and shut it down; if you do not, then the new version will not
20  
-be able to read the database files and will exit with an error.
21  
-
22  
-Explanation of -detachdb (and the new "stop true" RPC command):
23  
-The Berkeley DB database library stores data in both ".dat" and
24  
-"log" files, so the database is always in a consistent state,
25  
-even in case of power failure or other sudden shutdown. The
26  
-format of the ".dat" files is portable between different
27  
-versions of Berkeley DB, but the "log" files are not-- even minor
28  
-version differences may have incompatible "log" files. The
29  
--detachdb option moves any pending changes from the "log" files
30  
-to the "blkindex.dat" file for maximum compatibility, but makes
31  
-shutdown much slower. Note that the "wallet.dat" file is always
32  
-detached, and versions prior to 0.6.0 detached all databases
33  
-at shutdown.
34

35

+Incompatible Changes
  9
+--------------------
  10
+
  11
+This release no longer maintains a full index of historical transaction ids
  12
+by default, so looking up an arbitrary transaction using the getrawtransaction
  13
+RPC call will not work. If you need that functionality, you must run once
  14
+with -txindex=1 -reindex=1 to rebuild block-chain indices (see below for more
  15
+details).
  16
+
  17
+Improvements
36 18
 ------------
37 19
 
38  
-* Added a boolean argument to the RPC 'stop' command, if true sets
39  
-  -detachdb to create standalone database .dat files before shutting down.
  20
+Mac and Windows binaries are signed with certificates owned by the Bitcoin
  21
+Foundation, to be compatible with the new security features in OSX 10.8 and
  22
+Windows 8.
40 23
 
41  
-* -salvagewallet command-line option, which moves any existing wallet.dat
42  
-  to wallet.{timestamp}.dat and then attempts to salvage public/private
43  
-  keys and master encryption keys (if the wallet is encrypted) into
44  
-  a new wallet.dat. This should only be used if your wallet becomes
45  
-  corrupted, and is not intended to replace regular wallet backups.
  24
+LevelDB, a fast, open-source, non-relational database from Google, is
  25
+now used to store transaction and block indices.  LevelDB works much better
  26
+on machines with slow I/O and is faster in general. Berkeley DB is now only
  27
+used for the wallet.dat file (public and private wallet keys and transactions
  28
+relevant to you).
46 29
 
47  
-* Import $DataDir/bootstrap.dat automatically, if it exists.
  30
+Pieter Wuille implemented many optimizations to the way transactions are
  31
+verified, so a running, synchronized node uses much less memory and does
  32
+much less I/O. He also implemented parallel signature checking, so if you
  33
+have a multi-CPU machine all CPUs will be used to verify transactions.

-Dependency changes
50  
-------------------
  35
+New Features
  36
+------------
  37
+
  38
+"Bloom filter" support in the network protocol for sending only relevant transactions to
  39
+lightweight clients.
  40
+
  41
+contrib/verifysfbinaries is a shell-script to verify that the binary downloads
  42
+at sourceforge have not been tampered with. If you are able, you can help make
  43
+everybody's downloads more secure by running this occasionally to check PGP
  44
+signatures against download file checksums.
  45
+
  46
+contrib/spendfrom is a python-language command-line utility that demonstrates
  47
+how to use the "raw transactions" JSON-RPC api to send coins received from particular
  48
+addresses (also known as "coin control").
51 49
 
52  
-* Qt 4.8.2 for Windows builds
  50
+New/changed settings (command-line or bitcoin.conf file)
  51
+--------------------------------------------------------
53 52
 
54  
-* openssl 1.0.1c
  53
+dbcache : now controls LevelDB memory usage. Running with (for example) -dbcache=1000
  54
+will use a gigabyte of memory and might make the initial blockchain download faster.
55 55
 
56  
-Bug fixes
57  
----------
  56
+par : controls how many threads to use to validate transactions. Defaults to the number
  57
+of CPUs on your machine, use -par=1 to limit to a single CPU.
58 58
 
59  
-* When running -testnet, use RPC port 18332 by default.
  59
+txindex : maintains an extra index of old, spent transaction ids so they will be found
  60
+by the getrawtransaction JSON-RPC method.
60 61
 
61  
-* Better detection and handling of corrupt wallet.dat and blkindex.dat files.
62  
-  Previous versions would crash with a DB_RUNRECOVERY exception, this
63  
-  version detects most problems and tells you how to recover if it
64  
-  cannot recover itself.
  62
+reindex : rebuild block and transaction indices from the downloaded block data.
65 63
 
66  
-* Fixed an uninitialized variable bug that could cause transactions to
67  
-  be reported out of order.
  64
+New JSON-RPC API Features
  65
+-------------------------
68 66
 
69  
-* Fixed a bug that could cause occasional crashes on exit.
  67
+lockunspent / listlockunspent allow locking transaction outputs for a period of time so
  68
+they will not be spent by other processes that might be accessing the same wallet.
  69
+
  70
+addnode / getaddednodeinfo methods, to connect to specific peers without restarting.
  71
+
  72
+importprivkey now takes an optional boolean parameter (default true) to control whether
  73
+or not to rescan the blockchain for transactions after importing a new private key.
  74
+
  75
+Important Bug Fixes
  76
+-------------------
  77
+
  78
+Privacy leak: the position of the "change" output in most transactions was not being
  79
+properly randomized, making network analysis of the transaction graph to identify
  80
+users' wallets easier. 
  81
+
  82
+Zero-confirmation transaction vulnerability: accepting zero-confirmation transactions
  83
+(transactions that have not yet been included in a block) from somebody you do not
  84
+trust is still not recommended, because there will always be ways for attackers to
  85
+double-spend zero-confirmation transactions. However, this release includes a bug
  86
+fix that makes it a little bit more difficult for attackers to double-spend a
  87
+certain type ("lockTime in the future") of zero-confirmation transaction.
  88
+
  89
+Dependency Changes
  90
+------------------
70 91
 
71  
-* Warn the user that they need to create fresh wallet backups after they
72  
-  encrypt their wallet.
  92
+Qt 4.8.3 (compiling against older versions of Qt 4 should continue to work)
