This release includes the following features and fixes:

This new field deprecates previous fee fields, such a fee, modifiedfee, ancestorfee and descendantfee.

Dynamic creation of wallets

  • Previously, wallets could only be loaded or created at startup, by specifying -wallet parameters on the command line or in the bitcoin.conf file. It is now possible to create wallets dynamically at runtime:

  • New wallets can be created (and loaded) by calling the createwallet RPC. The provided name must not match a wallet file in the walletdir directory or the name of a wallet that is currently loaded.

  • This feature is currently only available through the RPC interface.
