We have just posted updates for all our SMP-capable clients except for the OS/X-Installer version. These updates do two things:
1. fix a small but important bug
2. enable the clients for the upcoming release of our first SMP2 cores (threads-based SMP)

The new client version is 6.29. Please update your clients at your earliest convenience if you are running SMP, particularly if you are running -bigadv work units.
We anticipate swapping over -bigadv work units to use only the new client in the coming weeks.

Client downloads are available at:

For those of you that DO run -bigadv, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you update to the 6.29 client ASAP as donors using the "older" binaries have noted they are being issued A1 units or smaller A2 units [url=http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=55&t=13272]instead of the big A2[/url] units.

Chris, does that caution apply to Linux as well as OSX?

Yes, especially Linux users.  I've seen reports on other forums about donors that use [url=http://reilly.homeip.net/folding/]notfred CD and VM Linux[/url] for folding being saddled with A1 and smaller A2 units because they have not updated to v6.29 binaries.  With OS X users it is not so cut and dry as the installer still uses the v6.26 binary.  So, who knows?  Your mileage may vary.

Straight from the "horse's mouth";

As we previously announced, we are now requiring client versions >=6.28 for bigadv work units. If you haven't upgraded your clients, please do so.
(At the moment, we are still running core A2 bigadv work units and not yet core A3 ones, so windows clients can't run them yet. We will be transitioning to core A3 in the near future.)

For those of you running SMP2 work that have not upgraded to client version 6.29, Dr Kasson posted [url=http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=14541#p142912]another message[/url] asking people to do so.

One important note to SMP users: ***please be sure you have 6.29 or later clients***
The assignment server will not give SMP2 work to clients older than 6.29, so if you have an older client you may not be able to download SMP work.
The biggest difference between time and space is that you can't reuse time.
