6.24R3 windows SMP client released -Expiration July 4, 2010

Postby augie » Wed Jun 24, 2009 6:55 pm

Current one expires July 4th, 2009. Can you cut it any closer?! :whistle :lol:

We have posted the drop-in replacement binary for the windows v6 client. This can be found at:
http://www.stanford.edu/~kasson/folding ... 32-x86.exe
MD5 checksum: 5c14c566e11b69273477d7ca102c40c4

Refreshes of the full packages will follow.

This client has only minor modifications from the 6.23 client (it is near-identical to the 6.24 client currently released for Linux and OS/X). We are anticipating a major set of changes to the SMP client over the next several months, but we aren't quite there yet. Keep your eyes out for updates. (There are some big improvements to the SMP cores underway, and they will necessitate some new client code.)

As stated in the thread title, the 6.24R3 client will expire July 4, 2010. Assuming our new SMP cores are on schedule, you may wish to upgrade earlier, however, as we hope to phase out the SMP A1 core as we switch to the new future cores. But we'll release more details when the new software is released (date TBD--development is still ongoing).

If you're running one these then replace as soon as your current SMP finishes, VMWare folks are OK.

Thanks for contributing to the project!

VMWare need not upgrade, this is only for Windows SMP.

Yes, in the Windows directory, besides the link you posted is a mail link, may want to fix that.;)

This one.

Yes, as a uniproc ATM for some 225 PPD, I'm still trying to shoehorn a second SMP into my quad but this will do for now. Do watch out for the system ID# as it conflicted with my GPU client #.
