SMP2 (A3) core update: version 2.17

By , the in Folding@Home Project - No comment
A new version of the SMP2 core (also known as A3) has been posted on the Stanford servers. This new version is numbered 2.17 and is available for Windows, Linux and OSX.

The update provides new scientific features that will be used in the upcoming SMP2 projects. Currently, one server distributes SMP2 WUs that require the new core. If you are assigned one of these units, your core will be automatically updated.

Be careful though, if you want to force the update of the core. Do not perform this update if there is a unit currently processing, or you will lose all the work already done with this unit. The checkpoints of this new core version are incompatible with those of previous versions of the core.
