We’re finally set to start rolling out version 6 (v6) of Folding@home. You can download a beta version from our download page. There are several changes to v6, many under the hood, and some that are more visible. We’ll be talking more about v6 as we roll it out further, but I wanted to make a few comments here. First, we’re working to do better integration of SMP to the regular client and in particular to make the SMP client more flexible. The SMP client/core is very much the future of FAH and so a lot of work has been going into it.
Our hope is that our beta testing for v6 will go smoothly. I’ll be writing here about specific v6 features as time goes on.
