Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind version 0.8.1 released

[greenalert]Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind version 0.8.1 released[/greenalert]

Gavin Andresen, Lead Core Bitcoin Developer posted today on Bitcoin Talk:

Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind version 0.8.1 is now available from:
  http://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.8.1/

This is a maintenance release that adds a new network rule to avoid
a chain-forking incompatibility with versions 0.7.2 and earlier.

Please report bugs using the issue tracker at github:
  https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues


How to Upgrade
--------------

If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait
until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older
versions), then run the installer (on Windows) or just copy over
/Applications/Bitcoin-Qt (on Mac) or bitcoind/bitcoin-qt (on Linux).

If you are upgrading from version 0.7.2 or earlier, the first time you
run 0.8.1 your blockchain files will be re-indexed, which will take
anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours, depending on the speed of
your machine.
"No man has received from nature the right to give orders to others. Freedom is a gift from heaven, and every
individual of the same species has the right to enjoy it as soon as he is in enjoyment of his reason."
(Denis Diderot)
