Wallet encryption is long overdue, and AFAIK is coming in the next client version (0.4.0). What are the next planned milestones in the development of the main client and/or protocol? Where can I find information about that?

  • Not really. The closest I can think of is "does there exist a roadmap for development of the Bitcoin client?" so that the second answer can be on-topic. Even that's not super amazing though, since the linked roadmap is basically just an email Gavin wrote in August. Sep 10, 2011 at 12:24

Currently, they are working on: - wallet encryption - private key import/export - test suite for testing bitcoin clients/libraries - m-of-n signature "standard transaction"

You can read the Roadmap and the status before v0.4 release

They discuss the development at http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?forum_name=bitcoin-development
