Notable changes
===============

Low-level RPC changes
----------------------

- `importprunedfunds` only accepts two required arguments. Some versions accept
an optional third arg, which was always ignored. Make sure to never pass more
than two arguments.

Fee Estimation Changes
----------------------

- Since 0.13.2 fee estimation for a confirmation target of 1 block has been
disabled. This is only a minor behavior change as there was often insufficient
data for this target anyway. `estimatefee 1` will now always return -1 and
`estimatesmartfee 1` will start searching at a target of 2.

- The default target for fee estimation is changed to 6 blocks in both the GUI
(previously 25) and for RPC calls (previously 2).

Removal of Priority Estimation
-------------------------------

- Estimation of "priority" needed for a transaction to be included within a target
number of blocks has been removed. The rpc calls are deprecated and will either
return -1 or 1e24 appropriately. The format for `fee_estimates.dat` has also
changed to no longer save these priority estimates. It will automatically be
converted to the new format which is not readable by prior versions of the
software.

- The concept of "priority" (coin age) transactions is planned to be removed in
the next major version. To prepare for this, the default for the rate limit of
priority transactions (`-limitfreerelay`) has been set to `0` kB/minute. This
is not to be confused with the `prioritisetransaction` RPC which will remain
supported for adding fee deltas to transactions.

P2P connection management
--------------------------

- Peers manually added through the addnode option or addnode RPC now have their own
limit of eight connections which does not compete with other inbound or outbound
connection usage and is not subject to the maxconnections limitation.

- New connections to manually added peers are much faster.

Introduction of assumed-valid blocks
-------------------------------------

- A significant portion of the initial block download time is spent verifying
scripts/signatures. Although the verification must pass to ensure the security
of the system, no other result from this verification is needed: If the node
knew the history of a given block were valid it could skip checking scripts
for its ancestors.

- A new configuration option 'assumevalid' is provided to express this knowledge
to the software. Unlike the 'checkpoints' in the past this setting does not
force the use of a particular chain: chains that are consistent with it are
processed quicker, but other chains are still accepted if they'd otherwise
be chosen as best. Also unlike 'checkpoints' the user can configure which
block history is assumed true, this means that even outdated software can
sync more quickly if the setting is updated by the user.

- Because the validity of a chain history is a simple objective fact it is much
easier to review this setting. As a result the software ships with a default
value adjusted to match the current chain shortly before release. The use
of this default value can be disabled by setting -assumevalid=0

0.14.0 Change log
=================

Detailed release notes follow. This overview includes changes that affect
behavior, not code moves, refactors and string updates. For convenience in locating
the code changes and accompanying discussion, both the pull request and
git merge commit are mentioned.

### RPC and REST

UTXO set query (`GET /rest/getutxos/<checkmempool>/<txid>-<n>/<txid>-<n>/.../<txid>-<n>.<bin|hex|json>`) responses
were changed to return status code HTTP_BAD_REQUEST (400) instead of HTTP_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR (500) when requests
contain invalid parameters.

The first boolean argument to `getaddednodeinfo` has been removed. This is an incompatible change.

Call "getmininginfo" loses the "testnet" field in favor of the more generic "chain" (which has been present for years).

### 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.
