Welcome home!

This release sees the reconsolidation of the C++ codebase back into the cpp-ethereum repository, after around 9 months spread between multiple repos grouped under the webthree-umbrella repository. It also sees significant optimizations for the Interpreter. These two major changes represent many months of work by Bob Summerwill and Greg Colvin respectively.


Rembrandt van Rijn, The Return of the Prodigal Son, c. 1661–1669

Caveat - this specific release is coming directly from Bob's branch for expediancy due to the time-pressures of the DAO hardfork, but will be followed up later this week with a further point-release which does a history-preserving migration of this content into the mainline. We are also missing Homebrew and PPA releases. Again, they will be back later this week.

DAO hard-fork settings

Like geth-1.4.10, this release supports the hard-fork by default and also offers command-line options for explicit choices:

eth --support-dao-fork
eth --oppose-dao-fork
