Upgrading and downgrading
How to Upgrade
If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely
shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the
installer (on Windows) or just copy over /Applications/Bitcoin-Qt (on Mac) or
bitcoind/bitcoin-qt (on Linux).
Downgrade warning
### Downgrade to a version < 0.12.0
Because release 0.12.0 and later will obfuscate the chainstate on every
fresh sync or reindex, the chainstate is not backwards-compatible with
pre-0.12 versions of Bitcoin Core or other software.
If you want to downgrade after you have done a reindex with 0.12.0 or later,
you will need to reindex when you first start Bitcoin Core version 0.11 or
Notable changes
First version bits BIP9 softfork deployment
This release includes a soft fork deployment to enforce [BIP68][],
[BIP112][] and [BIP113][] using the [BIP9][] deployment mechanism.
The deployment sets the block version number to 0x20000001 between
midnight 1st May 2016 and midnight 1st May 2017 to signal readiness for
deployment. The version number consists of 0x20000000 to indicate version
bits together with setting bit 0 to indicate support for this combined
deployment, shown as "csv" in the `getblockchaininfo` RPC call.
For more information about the soft forking change, please see

BIP68 soft fork to enforce sequence locks for relative locktime
[BIP68][] introduces relative lock-time consensus-enforced semantics of
the sequence number field to enable a signed transaction input to remain
invalid for a defined period of time after confirmation of its corresponding
For more information about the implementation, see
BIP112 soft fork to enforce OP_CHECKSEQUENCEVERIFY
[BIP112][] redefines the existing OP_NOP3 as OP_CHECKSEQUENCEVERIFY (CSV)
for a new opcode in the Bitcoin scripting system that in combination with
[BIP68][] allows execution pathways of a script to be restricted based
on the age of the output being spent.
For more information about the implementation, see
BIP113 locktime enforcement soft fork
Bitcoin Core 0.11.2 previously introduced mempool-only locktime
enforcement using GetMedianTimePast(). This release seeks to
consensus enforce the rule.
Bitcoin transactions currently may specify a locktime indicating when
they may be added to a valid block. Current consensus rules require
that blocks have a block header time greater than the locktime specified
in any transaction in that block.
Miners get to choose what time they use for their header time, with the
consensus rule being that no node will accept a block whose time is more
than two hours in the future. This creates a incentive for miners to
set their header times to future values in order to include locktimed
transactions which weren't supposed to be included for up to two more
The consensus rules also specify that valid blocks may have a header
time greater than that of the median of the 11 previous blocks. This
GetMedianTimePast() time has a key feature we generally associate with
time: it can't go backwards.
[BIP113][] specifies a soft fork enforced in this release that
weakens this perverse incentive for individual miners to use a future
time by requiring that valid blocks have a computed GetMedianTimePast()
greater than the locktime specified in any transaction in that block.
Mempool inclusion rules currently require transactions to be valid for
immediate inclusion in a block in order to be accepted into the mempool.
This release begins applying the BIP113 rule to received transactions,
so transaction whose time is greater than the GetMedianTimePast() will
no longer be accepted into the mempool.
**Implication for miners:** you will begin rejecting transactions that
would not be valid under BIP113, which will prevent you from producing
invalid blocks when BIP113 is enforced on the network. Any
transactions which are valid under the current rules but not yet valid
under the BIP113 rules will either be mined by other miners or delayed
until they are valid under BIP113. Note, however, that time-based
locktime transactions are more or less unseen on the network currently.
**Implication for users:** GetMedianTimePast() always trails behind the
current time, so a transaction locktime set to the present time will be
rejected by nodes running this release until the median time moves
forward. To compensate, subtract one hour (3,600 seconds) from your
locktimes to allow those transactions to be included in mempools at
approximately the expected time.

The p2p alert system is off by default. To turn on, use `-alert` with
startup configuration.

Bitcoin Core version 0.13.0 is now available from:
This is a new major version release, including new features, various bugfixes
and performance improvements, as well as updated translations.
Please report bugs using the issue tracker at github:
To receive security and update notifications, please subscribe to:
Microsoft ended support for Windows XP on [April 8th, 2014](,
an OS initially released in 2001. This means that not even critical security
updates will be released anymore. Without security updates, using a bitcoin
wallet on a XP machine is irresponsible at least.
In addition to that, with 0.12.x there have been varied reports of Bitcoin Core
randomly crashing on Windows XP. It is [not clear](
what the source of these crashes is, but it is likely that upstream
libraries such as Qt are no longer being tested on XP.
We do not have time nor resources to provide support for an OS that is
end-of-life. From 0.13.0 on, Windows XP is no longer supported. Users are
suggested to upgrade to a newer verion of Windows, or install an alternative OS
that is supported.
No attempt is made to prevent installing or running the software on Windows XP,
you can still do so at your own risk, but do not expect it to work: do not
report issues about Windows XP to the issue tracker.
Notable changes
Database cache memory increased
As a result of growth of the UTXO set, performance with the prior default
database cache of 100 MiB has suffered.
For this reason the default was changed to 300 MiB in this release.
For nodes on low-memory systems, the database cache can be changed back to
100 MiB (or to another value) by either:
- Adding `dbcache=100` in bitcoin.conf
- Changing it in the GUI under `Options → Size of database cache`
Note that the database cache setting has the most performance impact
during initial sync of a node, and when catching up after downtime.
bitcoin-cli: arguments privacy
The RPC command line client gained a new argument, `-stdin`
to read extra arguments from standard input, one per line until EOF/Ctrl-D.
For example:
$ src/bitcoin-cli -stdin walletpassphrase
..... press Ctrl-D here to end input
It is recommended to use this for sensitive information such as wallet
passphrases, as command-line arguments can usually be read from the process
table by any user on the system.
C++11 and Python 3
Various code modernizations have been done. The Bitcoin Core code base has
started using C++11. This means that a C++11-capable compiler is now needed for
building. Effectively this means GCC 4.7 or higher, or Clang 3.3 or higher.
When cross-compiling for a target that doesn't have C++11 libraries, configure with
`./configure --enable-glibc-back-compat ... LDFLAGS=-static-libstdc++`.
For running the functional tests in `qa/rpc-tests`, Python3.4 or higher is now
Linux ARM builds
Due to popular request, Linux ARM builds have been added to the uploaded
The following extra files can be found in the download directory or torrent:
- `bitcoin-${VERSION}-arm-linux-gnueabihf.tar.gz`: Linux binaries for the most
common 32-bit ARM architecture.
- `bitcoin-${VERSION}-aarch64-linux-gnu.tar.gz`: Linux binaries for the most
common 64-bit ARM architecture.
ARM builds are still experimental. If you have problems on a certain device or
Linux distribution combination please report them on the bug tracker, it may be
possible to resolve them.
Note that Android is not considered ARM Linux in this context. The executables
are not expected to work out of the box on Android.
Compact Block support (BIP 152)
Support for block relay using the Compact Blocks protocol has been implemented
in PR 8068.
The primary goal is reducing the bandwidth spikes at relay time, though in many
cases it also reduces propagation delay. It is automatically enabled between
compatible peers.
[BIP 152](
As a side-effect, ordinary non-mining nodes will download and upload blocks
faster if those blocks were produced by miners using similar transaction
filtering policies. This means that a miner who produces a block with many
transactions discouraged by your node will be relayed slower than one with
only transactions already in your memory pool. The overall effect of such
relay differences on the network may result in blocks which include widely-
discouraged transactions losing a stale block race, and therefore miners may
wish to configure their node to take common relay policies into consideration.
Hierarchical Deterministic Key Generation
Newly created wallets will use hierarchical deterministic key generation
according to BIP32 (keypath m/0'/0'/k').
Existing wallets will still use traditional key generation.
Backups of HD wallets, regardless of when they have been created, can
therefore be used to re-generate all possible private keys, even the
ones which haven't already been generated during the time of the backup.
**Attention:** Encrypting the wallet will create a new seed which requires
a new backup!
Wallet dumps (created using the `dumpwallet` RPC) will contain the deterministic
seed. This is expected to allow future versions to import the seed and all
associated funds, but this is not yet implemented.
HD key generation for new wallets can be disabled by `-usehd=0`. Keep in
mind that this flag only has affect on newly created wallets.
You can't disable HD key generation once you have created a HD wallet.
There is no distinction between internal (change) and external keys.
HD wallets are incompatible with older versions of Bitcoin Core.
[Pull request](, [BIP 32](
Segregated Witness
The code preparations for Segregated Witness ("segwit"), as described in [BIP
141](, [BIP
143](, [BIP
144](, and [BIP
145]( are
finished and included in this release. However, BIP 141 does not yet specify
activation parameters on mainnet, and so this release does not support segwit
use on mainnet. Testnet use is supported, and after BIP 141 is updated with
proposed parameters, a future release of Bitcoin Core is expected that
implements those parameters for mainnet.
Furthermore, because segwit activation is not yet specified for mainnet,
version 0.13.0 will behave similarly as other pre-segwit releases even after a
future activation of BIP 141 on the network. Upgrading from 0.13.0 will be
required in order to utilize segwit-related features on mainnet (such as signal
BIP 141 activation, mine segwit blocks, fully validate segwit blocks, relay
segwit blocks to other segwit nodes, and use segwit transactions in the
wallet, etc).
Mining transaction selection ("Child Pays For Parent")
The mining transaction selection algorithm has been replaced with an algorithm
that selects transactions based on their feerate inclusive of unconfirmed
ancestor transactions. This means that a low-fee transaction can become more
likely to be selected if a high-fee transaction that spends its outputs is
With this change, the `-blockminsize` command line option has been removed.
The command line option `-blockmaxsize` remains an option to specify the
maximum number of serialized bytes in a generated block. In addition, the new
command line option `-blockmaxweight` has been added, which specifies the
maximum "block weight" of a generated block, as defined by [BIP 141 (Segregated
Witness)] (
In preparation for Segregated Witness, the mining algorithm has been modified
to optimize transaction selection for a given block weight, rather than a given
number of serialized bytes in a block. In this release, transaction selection
is unaffected by this distinction (as BIP 141 activation is not supported on
mainnet in this release, see above), but in future releases and after BIP 141
activation, these calculations would be expected to differ.
For optimal runtime performance, miners using this release should specify
`-blockmaxweight` on the command line, and not specify `-blockmaxsize`.
Additionally (or only) specifying `-blockmaxsize`, or relying on default
settings for both, may result in performance degradation, as the logic to
support `-blockmaxsize` performs additional computation to ensure that
constraint is met. (Note that for mainnet, in this release, the equivalent
parameter for `-blockmaxweight` would be four times the desired
`-blockmaxsize`. See [BIP 141]
( for additional
In the future, the `-blockmaxsize` option may be removed, as block creation is
no longer optimized for this metric. Feedback is requested on whether to
deprecate or keep this command line option in future releases.
Reindexing changes
In earlier versions, reindexing did validation while reading through the block
files on disk. These two have now been split up, so that all blocks are known
before validation starts. This was necessary to make certain optimizations that
are available during normal synchronizations also available during reindexing.
The two phases are distinct in the Bitcoin-Qt GUI. During the first one,
"Reindexing blocks on disk" is shown. During the second (slower) one,
"Processing blocks on disk" is shown.
It is possible to only redo validation now, without rebuilding the block index,
using the command line option `-reindex-chainstate` (in addition to
`-reindex` which does both). This new option is useful when the blocks on disk
are assumed to be fine, but the chainstate is still corrupted. It is also
useful for benchmarks.
Removal of internal miner
As CPU mining has been useless for a long time, the internal miner has been
removed in this release, and replaced with a simpler implementation for the
test framework.
The overall result of this is that `setgenerate` RPC call has been removed, as
well as the `-gen` and `-genproclimit` command-line options.
For testing, the `generate` call can still be used to mine a block, and a new
RPC call `generatetoaddress` has been added to mine to a specific address. This
works with wallet disabled.
New bytespersigop implementation
The former implementation of the bytespersigop filter accidentally broke bare
multisig (which is meant to be controlled by the `permitbaremultisig` option),
since the consensus protocol always counts these older transaction forms as 20
sigops for backwards compatibility. Simply fixing this bug by counting more
accurately would have reintroduced a vulnerability. It has therefore been
replaced with a new implementation that rather than filter such transactions,
instead treats them (for fee purposes only) as if they were in fact the size
of a transaction actually using all 20 sigops.
Low-level P2P changes
- The optional new p2p message "feefilter" is implemented and the protocol
version is bumped to 70013. Upon receiving a feefilter message from a peer,
a node will not send invs for any transactions which do not meet the filter
feerate. [BIP 133](
- The P2P alert system has been removed in PR #7692 and the `alert` P2P message
is no longer supported.
- The transaction relay mechanism used to relay one quarter of all transactions
instantly, while queueing up the rest and sending them out in batch. As
this resulted in chains of dependent transactions being reordered, it
systematically hurt transaction relay. The relay code was redesigned in PRs
\#7840 and #8082, and now always batches transactions announcements while also
sorting them according to dependency order. This significantly reduces orphan
transactions. To compensate for the removal of instant relay, the frequency of
batch sending was doubled for outgoing peers.
- Since PR #7840 the BIP35 `mempool` command is also subject to batch processing.
Also the `mempool` message is no longer handled for non-whitelisted peers when
`NODE_BLOOM` is disabled through `-peerbloomfilters=0`.
- The maximum size of orphan transactions that are kept in memory until their
ancestors arrive has been raised in PR #8179 from 5000 to 99999 bytes. They
are now also removed from memory when they are included in a block, conflict
with a block, and time out after 20 minutes.
- We respond at most once to a getaddr request during the lifetime of a
connection since PR #7856.
- Connections to peers who have recently been the first one to give us a valid
new block or transaction are protected from disconnections since PR #8084.
Low-level RPC changes
- RPC calls have been added to output detailed statistics for individual mempool
entries, as well as to calculate the in-mempool ancestors or descendants of a
transaction: see `getmempoolentry`, `getmempoolancestors`, `getmempooldescendants`.
- `gettxoutsetinfo` UTXO hash (`hash_serialized`) has changed. There was a divergence between
32-bit and 64-bit platforms, and the txids were missing in the hashed data. This has been
fixed, but this means that the output will be different than from previous versions.
- Full UTF-8 support in the RPC API. Non-ASCII characters in, for example,
wallet labels have always been malformed because they weren't taken into account
properly in JSON RPC processing. This is no longer the case. This also affects
the GUI debug console.
- Asm script outputs replacements for OP_NOP2 and OP_NOP3
- OP_NOP2 has been renamed to OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY by [BIP
- OP_NOP3 has been renamed to OP_CHECKSEQUENCEVERIFY by [BIP
- The following outputs are affected by this change:
- RPC `getrawtransaction` (in verbose mode)
- RPC `decoderawtransaction`
- RPC `decodescript`
- REST `/rest/tx/` (JSON format)
- REST `/rest/block/` (JSON format when including extended tx details)
- `bitcoin-tx -json`
- The sorting of the output of the `getrawmempool` output has changed.
- New RPC commands: `generatetoaddress`, `importprunedfunds`, `removeprunedfunds`, `signmessagewithprivkey`,
`getmempoolancestors`, `getmempooldescendants`, `getmempoolentry`,
`createwitnessaddress`, `addwitnessaddress`.
- Removed RPC commands: `setgenerate`, `getgenerate`.
- New options were added to `fundrawtransaction`: `includeWatching`, `changeAddress`, `changePosition` and `feeRate`.
Low-level ZMQ changes
- Each ZMQ notification now contains an up-counting sequence number that allows
listeners to detect lost notifications.
The sequence number is always the last element in a multi-part ZMQ notification and
therefore backward compatible. Each message type has its own counter.
