Bitcoin 0.8.2 BETA
Copyright (c) 2009-2013 Bitcoin Developers
Distributed under the MIT/X11 software license, see the accompanying
file COPYING or http://www.opensource.org/licenses/mit-license.php.
This product includes software developed by the OpenSSL Project for use in
the OpenSSL Toolkit (http://www.openssl.org/). This product includes
cryptographic software written by Eric Young (eay@cryptsoft.com).
Intro
-----
Bitcoin is a free open source peer-to-peer electronic cash system that is
completely decentralized, without the need for a central server or trusted
parties. Users hold the crypto keys to their own money and transact directly
with each other, with the help of a P2P network to check for double-spending.
Setup
-----
You need the Qt4 run-time libraries to run Bitcoin-Qt. On Debian or Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install libqtgui4
Unpack the files into a directory and run:
bin/32/bitcoin-qt (GUI, 32-bit)
bin/32/bitcoind (headless, 32-bit)
bin/64/bitcoin-qt (GUI, 64-bit)
bin/64/bitcoind (headless, 64-bit)
See the documentation at the bitcoin wiki:

Coding
====================
Please be consistent with the existing coding style.
Block style:
bool Function(char* psz, int n)
{
// Comment summarising what this section of code does
for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
{
// When something fails, return early
if (!Something())
return false;
...
}
// Success return is usually at the end
return true;
}
- ANSI/Allman block style
- 4 space indenting, no tabs
- No extra spaces inside parenthesis; please don't do ( this )
- No space after function names, one space after if, for and while
Variable names begin with the type in lowercase, like nSomeVariable.
Please don't put the first word of the variable name in lowercase like
someVariable.
Common types:
n integer number: short, unsigned short, int, unsigned int, int64, uint64, sometimes char if used as a number
d double, float
f flag
hash uint256
p pointer or array, one p for each level of indirection
psz pointer to null terminated string
str string object
v vector or similar list objects
map map or multimap
set set or multiset
bn CBigNum
-------------------------
Locking/mutex usage notes
The code is multi-threaded, and uses mutexes and the
LOCK/TRY_LOCK macros to protect data structures.
Deadlocks due to inconsistent lock ordering (thread 1 locks cs_main
and then cs_wallet, while thread 2 locks them in the opposite order:
result, deadlock as each waits for the other to release its lock) are
a problem. Compile with -DDEBUG_LOCKORDER to get lock order
inconsistencies reported in the debug.log file.
Re-architecting the core code so there are better-defined interfaces
between the various components is a goal, with any necessary locking
done by the components (e.g. see the self-contained CKeyStore class
and its cs_KeyStore lock for example).

Threads
- StartNode : Starts other threads.
- ThreadGetMyExternalIP : Determines outside-the-firewall IP address, sends addr message to connected peers when it determines it.

repackage gitian builds for release as stand-alone zip/tar/installer exe
**Linux .tar.gz:**
unzip bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux-gitian.zip -d bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux
tar czvf bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux.tar.gz bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux
rm -rf bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux
**Windows .zip and setup.exe:**
unzip bitcoin-${VERSION}-win32-gitian.zip -d bitcoin-${VERSION}-win32
mv bitcoin-${VERSION}-win32/bitcoin-*-setup.exe .
zip -r bitcoin-${VERSION}-win32.zip bitcoin-${VERSION}-win32
rm -rf bitcoin-${VERSION}-win32
**Perform Mac build:**
OSX binaries are created by Gavin Andresen on a 32-bit, OSX 10.6 machine.
qmake RELEASE=1 USE_UPNP=1 USE_QRCODE=1 bitcoin-qt.pro
make
export QTDIR=/opt/local/share/qt4 # needed to find translations/qt_*.qm files
T=$(contrib/qt_translations.py $QTDIR/translations src/qt/locale)
python2.7 share/qt/clean_mac_info_plist.py
python2.7 contrib/macdeploy/macdeployqtplus Bitcoin-Qt.app -add-qt-tr $T -dmg -fancy contrib/macdeploy/fancy.plist
Build output expected: Bitcoin-Qt.dmg
###Next steps:
* Code-sign Windows -setup.exe (in a Windows virtual machine) and
OSX Bitcoin-Qt.app (Note: only Gavin has the code-signing keys currently)
* upload builds to SourceForge
* create SHA256SUMS for builds, and PGP-sign it
* update bitcoin.org version
make sure all OS download links go to the right versions
* update forum version
* update wiki download links
* update wiki changelog: [https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Changelog](https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Changelog)
Commit your signature to gitian.sigs:
pushd gitian.sigs
git add ${VERSION}/${SIGNER}
git add ${VERSION}-win32/${SIGNER}
git commit -a
git push # Assuming you can push to the gitian.sigs tree
popd
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
### After 3 or more people have gitian-built, repackage gitian-signed zips:
From a directory containing bitcoin source, gitian.sigs and gitian zips
export VERSION=0.5.1
mkdir bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux-gitian
pushd bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux-gitian
unzip ../bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux-gitian.zip
mkdir gitian
cp ../bitcoin/contrib/gitian-downloader/*.pgp ./gitian/
for signer in $(ls ../gitian.sigs/${VERSION}/); do
cp ../gitian.sigs/${VERSION}/${signer}/bitcoin-build.assert ./gitian/${signer}-build.assert
cp ../gitian.sigs/${VERSION}/${signer}/bitcoin-build.assert.sig ./gitian/${signer}-build.assert.sig
done
