### 2013-08-12
* Invalidate addresses with non-base58 characters
Leading or trailing spaces will invalidate your address. Strip them before
validating the address.

### 2012-12-14
* Renamed the `check_bc` function to `validate` for ease of use.
* Added check if the base58-re-encoded address matches the original address
Relevant for short addresses with a valid check, but invalid format.
For example: `14oLvT2`
The valid version of that address is: `1111111111111111111114oLvT2`
* Added alternatives for `long.to_bytes` and `long.from_bytes` for Python
versions prior to 3.2
* Added unit tests
