upcoming core changes (bigadv will switch from A3 to A5)

Postby kasson » Wed Feb 23, 2011 7:46 pm

Just a heads-up: we are planning to migrate bigadv from running on Core A3 to running on Core A5 very shortly. Core A5 utilizes the same codebase as A3, but pegged to specific version snapshots. We have 64-bit Linux, Win32, and 64-bit OS/X versions of the core in testing; the initial release will likely be Win32 & Linux.

The new core will require a client upgrade; A5 will require version 6.34 or later. The Linux and Win32 versions of the 6.34 client will be released to the public very shortly. If you are running bigadv work units, please upgrade your clients. That will ease the transition as we start turning Core A5 bigadv projects on and turning Core A3 bigadv projects off.

to download the 6.34 clients. We're still doing a bit of cosmetic cleanup on the page, but the links should work.

Thanks and happy folding!

One note of interest: the Linux and Win32 versions are running slightly different codebases. Each was selected for optimal bigadv compatibility on that architecture. In many cases, the Linux version may be somewhat faster.
