Win32, Linux and source releases (MacOSX soon) for bitcoin v0.3.23
have been uploaded to

This is another quick bugfix release, trying to deal with the influx
of new bitcoin users.

Priority for next version:  wallet encryption

Main items of note:

    * P2P connect-to-node logic changed to reduce timeout a bit.  The
network saw a huge influx of new users, who do not permit incoming
connections.  This change is a short-term hack, to more quickly hunt
for useful P2P connections.  Better "leaf node" logic is in the works,
but this should let us limp along until then.
    * Transaction fee reduced to 0.0005 for new transactions (see note below)
    * Client will relay transactions with fees as low as 0.0001 BTC
(see note below)

NOTE:  There has been some fee confusion recently.  Free transactions
are supported and relayed as they always have been, according to
special anti-spam rules.  See
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Transaction_fees for details.
