You can now prioritise COVID-19 projects with [email protected]'s latest client update
This update to the [email protected] client is also designed to address several bugs that were uncovered by volunteers, though some known bugs remain. We have been told that bug fixes were prioritised based on development time and that further updates to the [email protected] client will be made available in the future.
Moving forward, the [email protected] project has also been working on a new "Open-Source [email protected] software", something which is designed to improve the application's performance and make it easier for communities to get involved in the client's development. With this project, [email protected] plans to tap into the expertise of its active community to produce better software and a more engaging user experience for their users.
At this time, little else is known about [email protected]'s future software releases, though we can expect more to be announced soon.
Those who are interested can read more about [email protected]'s latest and future client updates here. Version 7.6.9 of the [email protected] client can be downloaded here.
How can I help?
Last month, we released a guide on how to start Folding using Windows-based PCs. Today, COVID-19 projects on [email protected] are both CPU and GPU-based, allowing PC users to dedicate most of their PC's performance to fighting the pandemic.
At this time, you cannot dedicate your PC's resources specifically to Coronavirus-related projects, but know that all of [email protected]'s projects are useful for disease research.
For almost ten years, OC3D has hosted the Redline @ OC3D folding team (team number 98860). Those who are interested in folding should head over to our [email protected] subforum if you want to join the team or discuss folding with our active team members.
You can join the discussion on [email protected]'s latest client update on the OC3D Forums.
