Bitcoin Core 13.1 includes the segregated witness (segwit) soft-fork. The release notes say:
Segregated witness (segwit) is a soft fork that, if activated, will allow transaction-producing software to separate (segregate) transaction signatures (witnesses) from the part of the data in a transaction that is covered by the txid.
How do I activate segwit in Bitcoin Core 13.1? I couldn't find a command-line option for enabling it.
