Bitcoin ABC version 0.21.5 is now available from:
This release includes the following features and fixes:
-regtestcommand line flag, now requires transactions to not violate standard policy by default. Making the default the same as mainnet makes it easier to test mainnet behavior on regtest. Be reminded that the testnet still allows non-standard txs by default and that the policy can be locally adjusted with the
-acceptnonstdtxncommand line flag for both test chains.
echoRPC will now return an internal bug report if exactly 100 arguments are provided.
bitcoin-wallettool is now available, distributed alongside our usual binaries. This tool provides a way to create new wallet files and inspect basic information about a wallet without using any RPCs.
