Bitcoin Classic updates the 1.3 version with various bugfixes.

This is the latest release in the 1.3 series. The 1.3 series is mostly aimed at people wanting to get away from the Core dominance and their small blocks view of Bitcoin.

This version can be configured to follow the Bitcoin Cash (codename UAHF) chain, or look at the Cash version of Classic to avoid any configuration changes.

In November the Bitcoin chain will get a planned upgrade to 2MB, to make sure no mistakes are made Bitcoin Classic will make sure the 2MB chain is selected in case any miners mistakenly continue to mine on the 1MB chain.
You can continue using Bitcoin Classic safely on the 2MB chain.

There are a long list of Bitcoin Cash specific features in the 1.3 series, please refer to the Cash release notes for more details on Bitcoin Cash support.

Bugs fixed in 1.3.8;

  • 25aed6b Fix reindexing not stopping in normal GUI shutdown
  • 9f7dfeb Avoid multiple reconnects to useless nodes

Bitcoin Classic updates the 1.3 version with various bugfixes.

In the 1.3 series of releases Bitcoin Classic started supporting Bitcoin Cash. Bitcoin Cash is the improved version of Bitcoin, removing the barriers to growth and removing lock-in created by a centralised development team.

Bitcoin Classic is the front runner for Bitcoin Cash, here are some of its features;

  • Full Bitcoin Cash support, using the UAHF codename. A zero-config download is available.
  • Full zero-fee transaction support. From relay for others as well as creation in the wallet and mining.
  • Much improved networking and peer selection.
  • Introduce DNS seeds that specialise in high-quality nodes.
  • Allows users to migrate from a Bitcoin Core (up to 0.14) node to Bitcoin Cash without a blockchain re-download.
  • Separates legacy and cash nodes at the network protocol level. This makes sure all outgoing connections will be to Cash nodes.
  • Ensure we connect to Xthin capable nodes (default 3) as block propagation is much cheaper that way.
  • If transactions from the BTC branch are in the wallet, ignore them in the Bitcoin Cash GUI and vice versa.
  • Support payment requests using the 'bitcoincash:' URI. Separately, support new address-type for payment requests.
  • Much improved log-file support. Including runtime reloading of config-file using SIGHUP.

Bugs fixed in 1.3.8;

  • 25aed6b Fix reindexing not stopping in normal GUI shutdown
  • 9ee6af0 Fix node getting stuck AT the fork block
  • 2c4f6a8 Avoid banning CASH nodes while doing the initial block download
  • 9f7dfeb Avoid multiple reconnects to useless nodes
  • 8c35e21 Remove mempool.clear() when we start UAHF chain

And various minor bugfixes and updates.

Bitcoin Classic updates the 1.3 version with various bugfixes and the addition of the new Bitcoin Cash address-type as introduced by BitPay last week. It is now possible to pay from Classic to those addresses, we still support the old BTC ones.

After the successful creation of Bitcoin Cash we proudly present the stable, most user friendly Bitcoin full node that allows you to choose the Bitcoin you want.

  • Full Bitcoin Cash support, using the UAHF name. A special download is available.
  • Ability to automatically migrate and separate out the Bitcoin Cash data from the traditional chain.
    This allows users to run two nodes, each following a different chain.
  • Faster re-connecting to Bitcoin Cash capable nodes by remembering which nodes support it.
  • Full zero-fee transaction support. From relay for others as well as creation in the wallet and mining.
  • Much improved log-file support. Including runtime reloading of config-file using SIGHUP.

This client is fully compatible with the Bitcoin Cash spin-off from Bitcoin, but using the default settings we ignore it. You can change the config-file, or we point you to the specialized UAHF version of Classic.

Details added in 1.3.7;

  • 031adb0 Fix nodes not getting any new blocks
  • 3f8be7e Update seeds
  • fba1523 Change default value for -initiatecashconnections
  • 6121932 Add support for BitPays alternative cash addreses
  • 6348daa Support new address type when entered by user
  • 9cd345f Work better with misbehaving node
  • dd11570 Fix logger skipping first char of constructor
  • 922f0fb Use proper fallback for uahf
  • ca9de3e Make initialization of chain-Params lazy

And various minor bugfixes and updates.
