Bitcoin is an experimental new digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network. Bitcoin is also the name of the open source software which enables the use of this currency.
The software is a community-driven Open Source project, released under the MIT license.
- Transactions with version numbers larger than 0x7fffffff were incorrectly being relayed and included in blocks.
- Blocks containing transactions with version numbers larger than 0x7fffffff caused the code that checks for LevelDB database inconsistencies at startup to erroneously report database corruption and suggest that you reindex your database.
- This release also contains a non-critical fix to the code that enforces BIP 34 (block height in the coinbase transaction).
