That's a great changelog. I sent you ฿2 for your trouble. Smiley
Thanks! Maybe I should continue posting a changelog for every release Grin

the hashes/sec patch was from lachesis, and the extended-help might have been based on my idea, but the code was somewhat different.
Edited.

The idea was the main part.  When you posted your patch, I realized it should have been done that way instead of "-?".  I always had reservations about "-?" because it intrudes on the possible parameter values, and the help response is based on the version of the caller instead of the server.

Unfortunately we don't have an official changelog yet (except for the SVN revision descriptions).
...
Please tell me if you know of any other forum threads discussing the bugs/changes so I can add them to the list.

What's new? Do we have an official changelog yet?
Unfortunately we don't have an official changelog yet (except for the SVN revision descriptions).

Here is my unofficial changelog:
  • fix: makefile.osx
  • change: enable SSE2 in 64 bit builds
  • change: connection rules
    - always make 8 outbound connections
    - only one connection per a.b.*.* range
  • add: switch "-maxconnections=#" (discussed here)
  • change: JSON-RPC API prints floats with 8 decimal places
  • change: "bitcoind help " instead of "bitcoind -?" (based on a patch by jgarzik)
  • add: JSON-RPC "gethashespersec" (based on a patch by lachesis)
  • add: "version" and "hashespersec" fields in JSON-RPC "getinfo"
  • fix: "-datadir=" with relative path (bug described here)
  • change: autostart disabled by default except on Windows (requested here)
  • fix: occasional "vector iterator not dereferencable" assertion when compiled with msvc
  • fix: readlink compile warning on Linux build
  • fix: BSD detection (bug described here)
  • add: "-paytxfee=#" switch (explained here)

Please tell me if you know of any other forum threads discussing the bugs/changes so I can add them to the list.

Here's a test build if you'd like to help test before 0.3.9 is released.
(or if you'd rather get upgrading out of the way now instead of waiting)

Linux please test rc2 instead.  This adds a -4way switch for tcatm's 4-way SSE2.  This will only be for Linux:
