It's been released for everything but the Mac platforms. Should fix the AVX bugs and some validation issues.

Work is being created now as well.

Does Mac 6.92 validate with 6.96 if not when does the bug fix for OSX come? I am testing it by running OSX 9.92 vs win/linux6.96

Mac 6.92 will validate immediately with 6.96 on most WUs, but on WUs which find one or more Gaussians it may be inconclusive by reporting a different best_gaussian. In that case, after a third host does the WU all 3 should be granted credit since only one signal out of several won't match.

I'm putting Charlie on the case. Hopefully we'll have a MacOS version next week.

Updating to Catalyst 11.6 Broke both the v6 and v7 ATI apps on my host, this host is running Cat 11.7, suspect the v7 app is still broken with this driver,
I'll upgrade to Cat 11.7 and run some more benches.

Have to report another inconclusive with a suspicious windows host (v6.96), which seems to produce a lot of errors. http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/workunit.php?wuid=3471561.

Also my own host with id 50380 stopped working somewhen last night. No idea why, looking into it.

Urs is making his beta app available for Mac users
http://www.arkayn.us/forum/index.php?topic=20.msg54#msg54

This is based on Berkeley's stock sources and avx extensions are not supported.
