I’ve updated the RPC wiki page for how the password stuff will work in Bitcoin 0.3.3.
One nice side effect: you can prepare for the changes now; create a bitcoin.conf file with a username and password and modify your JSON-RPC code to do the HTTP Basic Authentication thing. Old code will just ignore the .conf file and the Authorization: HTTP header.
Question for everybody: should I add a section to the wiki page describing, in detail, how to do HTTP Basic authentication? PHP and Python make is really easy– just use the http://user:pass@host:port/ URL syntax. I don’t want to just duplicate the HTTP Basic authentication Wikipedia page.
Gavin’s changes look good. I think everything is complete. Here’s a test build, please test it!
