I know everyone has been waiting. It's finally time.

We need some Mac users with ATI Radeon HD4000 series card to help the beta test before we can release that version. So if you've got an HD4XXX GPU, please join the beta.

Will it be possible to derrive a version for the Raspberry Pi / Pi 2 from the Android Arm version? It's basically the same processor (Arm7) .....

Thanks Eric for the heads up on availability of the new parts of V8 applications!

And thanks to all the volunteers that have been working so very hard behind the scenes to develop and support the entire user community in the transition to version 8 applications.

Thank you one and all!!!

No hurry in releasing GPU apps on main. I'm still testing CUDA50, and AVX CPU on Beta :-)

Won't be needed, we will be releasing an installer. (v 0.44)
Timeline for that is day (GMT) after Eric releases, since Richard and I are Europe based and need to check several files for consistency with what is released before we can finalise the installer and publish. Also it's good to give stock a head start, the APR system is flawed enough without us introducing extra chaos straight away.

Of course, now I have jinxed it.

Eric et al,

I have a spare HD4770 I can donate to a Mac user for testing. Contact me if it can be used. Location South London.

Of course, now I have jinxed it.

I use a MacBook PRO, 15" screen, early 2011 model,
running OSX El Capitan v10.11.2
System profiler reports Grapics installation as
Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB.
Is this of interest for the Beta trials of Seti v8?

Cheers
