  1. Starwels version 0.7.1 is now available from:
  3. This is a bug-fix minor release.
  4. Please report bugs using the issue tracker at github:
  6. Project source code is hosted at github; you can get
  7. source-only tarballs/zipballs directly from there:
  8. # .tar.gz
  9. # .zip
  10. Ubuntu Linux users can use the "Personal Package Archive" (PPA)
  11. maintained by Matt Corallo to automatically keep
  12. up-to-date. Just type:
  13. sudo apt-add-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
  14. sudo apt-get update
  15. in your terminal, then install the starwels-qt package:
  16. sudo apt-get install starwels-qt
  18. ------------
  19. Mac OSX 10.5 is no longer supported.
  20. How to Upgrade
  21. --------------
  22. If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait
  23. until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older
  24. versions), then run the installer (on Windows) or just copy over
  25. /Applications/Starwels-Qt (on Mac) or starwelsd/starwels-qt (on Linux).
  26. If you were running on Linux with a version that might have been compiled
  27. with a different version of Berkeley DB (for example, if you were using an
  28. Ubuntu PPA version), then run the old version again with the -detachdb
  29. argument and shut it down; if you do not, then the new version will not
  30. be able to read the database files and will exit with an error.
  31. Explanation of -detachdb (and the new "stop true" RPC command):
  32. The Berkeley DB database library stores data in both ".dat" and
  33. "log" files, so the database is always in a consistent state,
  34. even in case of power failure or other sudden shutdown. The
  35. format of the ".dat" files is portable between different
  36. versions of Berkeley DB, but the "log" files are not-- even minor
  37. version differences may have incompatible "log" files. The
  38. -detachdb option moves any pending changes from the "log" files
  39. to the "blkindex.dat" file for maximum compatibility, but makes
  40. shutdown much slower. Note that the "wallet.dat" file is always
  41. detached, and versions prior to 0.6.0 detached all databases
  42. at shutdown.
  43. New features
  44. ------------
  45. * Added a boolean argument to the RPC 'stop' command, if true sets
  46. -detachdb to create standalone database .dat files before shutting down.
  47. * -salvagewallet command-line option, which moves any existing wallet.dat
  48. to wallet.{timestamp}.dat and then attempts to salvage public/private
  49. keys and master encryption keys (if the wallet is encrypted) into
  50. a new wallet.dat. This should only be used if your wallet becomes
  51. corrupted, and is not intended to replace regular wallet backups.
  52. * Import $DataDir/bootstrap.dat automatically, if it exists.
  53. Dependency changes
  54. ------------------
  55. * Qt 4.8.2 for Windows builds
  56. * openssl 1.0.1c
  57. Bug fixes
  58. ---------
  59. * Clicking on a starwels: URI on Windows should now launch Starwels-Qt properly.
  60. * When running -testnet, use RPC port 18342 by default.
  61. * Better detection and handling of corrupt wallet.dat and blkindex.dat files.
  62. Previous versions would crash with a DB_RUNRECOVERY exception, this
  63. version detects most problems and tells you how to recover if it
  64. cannot recover itself.
  65. * Fixed an uninitialized variable bug that could cause transactions to
  66. be reported out of order.
  67. * Fixed a bug that could cause occasional crashes on exit.
  68. * Warn the user that they need to create fresh wallet backups after they
  69. encrypt their wallet.
