### Wallet
0.14.0 Fundrawtransaction change address reuse
==============================================
Before 0.14, `fundrawtransaction` was by default wallet stateless. In almost all cases `fundrawtransaction` does add a change-output to the outputs of the funded transaction. Before 0.14, the used keypool key was never marked as change-address key and directly returned to the keypool (leading to address reuse).
Before 0.14, calling `getnewaddress` directly after `fundrawtransaction` did generate the same address as the change-output address.
Since 0.14, fundrawtransaction does reserve the change-output-key from the keypool by default (optional by setting `reserveChangeKey`, default = `true`)
Users should also consider using `getrawchangeaddress()` in conjunction with `fundrawtransaction`'s `changeAddress` option.
