Bitcoin-Qt, bitcoind version 0.5.2 released

Bitcoin version 0.5.2 released (9 January 2012)

Bitcoin version 0.5.2 is now available for download at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.5.2/

This is a bugfix-only release.

Please report bugs using the issue tracker at github: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues

BUG FIXES
  • Check all transactions in blocks after the last checkpoint (0.5.0 and 0.5.1 skipped checking ECDSA signatures during initial blockchain download; this was not a security vulnerability).
  • Cease locking memory used by non-sensitive information (this caused a huge performance hit on some platforms, especially noticable during initial blockchain download).
  • Fixed some address-handling deadlocks (client freezes).
  • No longer accept inbound connections over the internet when Bitcoin is being used with Tor (identity leak).
  • Re-enable SSL support for the JSON-RPC interface (it was unintentionally disabled for the 0.5.0 and 0.5.1 release Linux binaries).
  • Use the correct base transaction fee of 0.0005 BTC for accepting transactions into mined blocks (since 0.4.0, it was incorrectly accepting 0.0001 BTC which was only meant to be relayed).
  • Don’t show “IP” for transactions which are not necessarily IP transactions.
  • Add new DNS seeds (maintained by Pieter Wuille and Luke Dashjr)
I think it has low risk than the 6 series.

0.6.x are in release candidate, which means that they are getting close to ready to be released.

Personally I prefer the coderr patched version with anonymity, though it's at 0.5.1.
