Notable changes

Example item

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:

$ echo -e "mysecretcode\n120" | src/bitcoin-cli -stdin walletpassphrase

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.
