Unfortunately we don't have an official changelog yet (except for the SVN revision descriptions).

Here is my unofficial changelog:
  • fix: makefile.osx
  • change: enable SSE2 in 64 bit builds
  • change: connection rules
    - always make 8 outbound connections
    - only one connection per a.b.*.* range
  • add: switch "-maxconnections=#" (discussed here)
  • change: JSON-RPC API prints floats with 8 decimal places
  • change: "bitcoind help <command>" instead of "bitcoind <command> -?" (based on a patch by jgarzik)
  • add: JSON-RPC "gethashespersec" (based on a patch by lachesis)
  • add: "version" and "hashespersec" fields in JSON-RPC "getinfo"
  • fix: "-datadir=<path>" with relative path (bug described here)
  • change: autostart disabled by default except on Windows (requested here)
  • fix: occasional "vector iterator not dereferencable" assertion when compiled with msvc
  • fix: readlink compile warning on Linux build
  • fix: BSD detection (bug described here)
  • add: "-paytxfee=#" switch (explained here)

Please tell me if you know of any other forum threads discussing the bugs/changes so I can add them to the list.

That's a great changelog. I sent you \u0e3f2 for your trouble. Smiley
Don't wanna take credit where it's not due Smiley

the hashes/sec patch was from lachesis, and the extended-help might have been based on my idea, but the code was somewhat different.

The idea was the main part.  When you posted your patch, I realized it should have been done that way instead of "-?".  I always had reservations about "-?" because it intrudes on the possible parameter values, and the help response is based on the version of the caller instead of the server.
