New Client Released - V7.6.13

Postby PantherX » Wed May 06, 2020 3:16 am

Please note that the latest version of the client has been released: V7.6.13
You can download it from here:

The previous release, V7.6.8 included important bug fixes and security updates. You can read more about it here: ... -projects/

Please note that the folding performance will not change as that is dependent on FahCore which remains the same across V7.4.X, V7.5.X and V7.6.X
