Why use V8?

Post by ETA_2025 »

For a CPU only system, are there any advantages or improvements, with regard to folding, in moving to V8?

Secure remote monitoring and control from anywhere
Synchronization of user/team/passkey/cause among your clients
Use of https to the servers
Detects large cpu counts on Windows
Uses systemd on Linux
Native client and cores on Apple silicon

Cores are probably all the same as for v7, so no compute advantage for Windows or Linux
It is beta, so there are plenty of bugs
