What's Changed?

Here's what's new about this version, as compared with our last public release 0.9.1 (r71):

* Fix for OS Crash - A very few users have reported hitting a bug in which can cause Windows to crash during shutdown/reboot. (Bug#33) This release fixes that problem, and is the primary reason we're releasing a new version right now.

* Update Checking - Starting with v0.9.2, PeerBlock will now check for for program updates when checking lists. If it finds that a new version of PeerBlock is available, it will offer to take you to the PeerBlock site (this page, in fact!). You'll need to download and install the new version yourself, as we don't have any kind of "automatic updates" feature built in yet. This should help keep you up-to-date in case we need to release any new bugfix releases like this one.

Why the Huge Version Bump?

I know, it looks as if the program must have changed a lot since the last version was "named" r71, and this one is r86. The thing is, those "R Numbers" you're seeing are actually the revision of the code used to build that version of the program, and are primarily used by us in the dev team to identify exactly which version of source we need to look at when troubleshooting user-submitted problems. So don't put too much weight on that number.

See this post on the Dev Blog for more details, if you're interested.
