distributed .plan updates in the last 24 hours:

bovine :: 21-Oct-2003 04:30 CDT (Tuesday) ::

There's a new release-candidate client for OpenVMS/Alpha available on
the pre-release page.  This is the first update in awhile for that
platform, so early feedback from anyone on that platform is
appreciated.  http://www.distributed.net/download/prerelease.php

We're close to having an optimized AMD64 (x86_64) client with a
hand-optimized natively 64-bit RC5-72 core in it.  If you're
interested in the progress of this, you can follow this bug for
status.  http://n0cgi.distributed.net/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=3387
Currently we're trying to tweak a few more cycles out of this core
before releasing something.

Two weeks ago we upgraded the translated language selection
functionality on our website to use a cookie-based technique instead
of purely Apache's mod_negotiation.  This results in a more consistent
user-experience if you explicitly pick another language translation
and then navigate around the website.  For technical details see

If you think you'd like to help out with translation or updating of
some of the localized versions of our webpages, feel free to send an
email to mikereed at distributed.net indicating what language(s) you're
able to accommodate.

The proxyinfo status pages should also be functioning again, after a
few days of not being available.  A bug in one of our stylesheets was
preventing them from being regenerated.

Also if you think you have a reasonable amount of experience with PHP
and PostgreSQL and would like to help out with the implementation of
some exciting new features on our stats pages, join #distributed on
irc.distributed.net or e-mail decibel at distributed.net
