The 1.07 added variable sieve sizes but introduced a bug in the kernel that was causing it to returning results outside the bounds of the numbers being checked which results in them being invalid. Version 1.08 should fix that problem. Please let me know if you run into any difficulties.

A new version of the Collatz Sieve application has been released for Windows. The Collatz Sieve app is still listed as a beta/test application so you will need to check that in your preferences in order to get work. I added a sieve_size parameter to the config file in version 1.07 which controls not only the sieve size used but also affects the items per kernel. I also modified the default values to those found to work on all of my various nVidia and AMD gpus with 99% GPU utilization and reasonable video response. Macintosh and Linux versions should be available sometime next week.

The Computing for Clean Water team is pleased to announce that the breakthrough paper we published online last month on the use of nanotechnology for more efficient water filtration will be available in the August print edition of Nature Nanotechnology. With our results published, we're now making the underlying data available to other interested scientists and discussing the attention our work has gotten, both from international experts in the field and from the world media.

We are glad to announce the discovery of a new gamma-ray pulsar hidden in plain sight in data from the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope. The object has been discovered by the computers of Connor Barry of Lafayette, Colorado, USA and Rich Johnson of Hayward, California, USA -- Congratulations! The scientific paper has been published in the Astrophysical Journal Letters. An open-access preprint version is found here. To learn more about it, check out the press release (a German version is also available here). Thanks to everyone participating in Einstein@Home and enabling such exciting discoveries!

I have had to temporarily deactivate our Linux versions of GARLI due to a bug preventing all workunits from completing properly under our new phased workunit scheme. Hopefully this bug will be resolved relatively soon; in the meantime, my apologies to our Linux users.
