Add support for a Payment Protocol to Bitcoin-Qt. Payment messages are protocol-buffer encoded and communicated over http(s), so this adds a dependency on the Google protocol buffer library, and requires Qt with OpenSSL support.

Copyright (c) 2009-2013 Bitcoin Developers
Distributed under the MIT/X11 software license. This product includes software developed by the OpenSSL Project for use in the OpenSSL Toolkit. This product includes cryptographic software written by Eric Young (email@example.com), and UPnP software written by Thomas Bernard.
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.
Bitcoin-Qt is the original Bitcoin client and it builds the backbone of the network. However, it downloads and stores the entire history of Bitcoin transactions; depending on the speed of your computer and network connection, the synchronization process can take anywhere from a few hours to a day or more.
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)
Unpack the files into a directory and run bitcoin-qt.exe.
