Bitcoin Core version 0.11.0 released

Major changes

  • Protection from transaction flooding is easier
  • Block file pruning
  • Big endian support
  • Memory usage optimization
  • Fee estimation changes
  • Privacy: Disable wallet transaction broadcast
  • Privacy: Stream isolation for Tor



  • Counterparty requires access to an address index, and for Bitcoin Core that is included in btcdrak’s release here: (we may need to wait couple of days until btcdrak releases 0.11.0-addrindex.
  • There’s a new feature called “block pruning” (disabled by default). It doesn’t seem Counterparty would support it because getrawtransaction and such can’t work when block pruning is enabled

Boom - #5286 fcf646c Change the default maximum OP_RETURN size to 80 bytes
