Follow the Bitcoin 1.2 Released. Now on the Mac App Store!

Follow the Bitcoin version 1.2 has been released.

The biggest news is that the app is now on the Mac App Store [link].  I had to change the icon to appease a reviewer, but I hope to get the old icon back.

You can also install the app as a plain old installer.  I have installers for Windows [exe][msi], Mac [dmg] and two bundles for Linux [rpm][deb].  Follow the Bitcoin version 1.2 is also free as in speech, so you can also install and run the software from source yourself [zip][tar.gz].  You will need Java 8 and a cursory knowledge of Gradle to build it from source.

There is one principal new feature in this release: some rudimentary analysis functions.  You can climb and descend Split Pyramids (like the one form Mt. Gox).  You can also follow what I term Spend and Change trails.

I hope to have a video about Spend and Change next week, but this week I jumped at the chance to show a tumbler in action.  Expect to see that video later today.

Edited to add MD5 sum table.
