Bitcoin Wallet

The latest Bitcoin Wallet is version 0.8.1.   It is a maintenance release and not a critical release.  This is a maintenance release that adds a new network rule to avoid a chain-forking incompatibility with versions 0.7.2 and earlier.   This was added in 18 Mar 2013.   Since Bitcoin version 0.5.0 released 21 November 2011 I have not seen any major security bug fixes which goes to show that Bitcoin itself is heading towards stability.   This is a very good show and a confidence booster for those who wants to adopt Bitcoin for their businesses.
