FAHClient V7.1.21 released (1st Open-Beta)
Beta Testers,

I am happy to announce that after many months of development and testing the new version 7 Folding@home client software is now available for open-beta testing. The V7 client is a complete rewrite of the previous client for Windows, OS-X and Linux with the following goals:
  1. To make the installation and startup user-friendly for the novice.
  2. To integrate the user interface into a single Monitor/Control program that manages the functionality previously contained in separate clients.
  3. To create a forward-looking design that can be readily expanded to incorporate new Folding Cores without the need to issue new client releases.
  4. To greatly improve previously problematic aspects including support for SMP, GPU, and the 3D viewer.

Thank you again, Clifford!

Yeah, but they need to. I remember the first couple iterations of F7... too unstable for me to use. ;) Some of the bugs with the v6 and v5 clients were even more annoying though, so I am extremely glad to see a regular update schedule with v7. It used to be 6-12 months before clients would get a big update!
