Bitcoin 0.3.2 released

Download links available now on  Everyone should upgrade to this version.

– Added a simple security safeguard that locks-in the block chain up to this point.
– Reduced addr messages to save bandwidth now that there are plenty of nodes to connect to.
– Spanish translation by milkiway.
– French translation by aidos.

The security safeguard makes it so even if someone does have more than 50% of the network’s CPU power, they can’t try to go back and redo the block chain before yesterday.  (if you have this update)

I’ll probably put a checkpoint in each version from now on.  Once the software has settled what the widely accepted block chain is, there’s no point in leaving open the unwanted non-zero possibility of revision months later.
