  • Fix an issue when parsing scripts which contain a multi-signature script
    which require zero signatures such as testnet block
  • Add check to ensure all transactions accepted to mempool only contain
    canonical data pushes (btcsuite/btcscript#6)
  • Fix an issue causing excessive memory consumption
  • Significantly rework and improve the websocket notification system:
    • Each client is now independent so slow clients no longer limit the
      speed of other connected clients
    • Potentially long-running operations such as rescans are now run in
      their own handler and rate-limited to one operation at a time without
      preventing simultaneous requests from the same client for the faster
      requests or notifications
    • A couple of scenarios which could cause shutdown to hang have been
    • Update notifynewtx notifications to support all address types instead
      of only pay-to-pubkey-hash
    • Provide a --rpcmaxwebsockets option to allow limiting the number of
      concurrent websocket clients

      (#86) (thanks @flammit)

    • Update getpeerinfo to always include syncnode field even when false
    • Remove help addenda for getpeerinfo now that it supports all fields
  • Close standard RPC connections on auth failure
  • Provide a --rpcmaxclients option to allow limiting the number of
    concurrent RPC clients (#68)

    and 100k, respectively (#71)
