Distributed.net is een platform waar momenteel een aantal distributed computing projecten op draaien. Voor het OGR-project heeft men onlangs een nieuwe versie van hun client uitgebracht. Het versienummer is inmiddels aangekomen bij 2.9008-490 waarmee de tweede fase van OGR-project kan worden ingezet. De volgende omschrijving troffen we aan op de website:
As some people may have noticed, the percentage complete for phase 1 of OGR25 will soon be approaching 100%. Within the next week or so, we will be halting "OGR classic" (for both OGR24 and OGR25) and launching OGRp2 (phase 2 of both OGR24 and OGR25).
The second phase of the project will continue searching of the left-over stubs that were intentionally excluded from the original "OGR classic" search-space, due to original concerns about having enough network capacity to efficiently handle the large numbers extremely small stubs. OGRp2 addresses this issue by instructing each client to search the many "micro"-stubs that exist within a large stub-range and return the combined search as a single result. It is expected that OGRp2 should take less time to complete than "OGR classic" did for phase 1.
Due to the nature of this new search logic, new clients and proxies will be needed in order to participate in OGRp2. Once "OGR classic" is shut off, any old clients will only participate in RC5-72 if that project has been left enabled on your client, otherwise your old clients will shutdown and go idle.
Client version 2.9008-490 is the minimum version that will support OGRp2. Personal Proxy build 341 is the minimum that will support the OGRp2 project. Updated client and proxy binaries will become available on the pre-release page for experienced users who wish to help by becoming early testers of OGRp2. Please report any issues you discover with the client and proxy in our bugzilla database. Depending on the severity of any possible problems discovered in the pre-release binaries, it may be necessary to discard these early OGRp2 results however we are not expecting that to occur.
