Support for OSX before 10.7

Hi everyone! We are looking into upgrading the development tools we use on OSX. However, it looks like this will prevent us supporting Foldit on versions of OSX before 10.7. Will this affect any players? Let us know!

New Release!

Hey everyone!

We've just released an update to both devprev and main with the following fixes and features:

IMPORTANT!: You may see small changes in the score function with this update. As a result, this new update will be REQUIRED in order to play all puzzles past 1000. Make sure you get the update, and let others know they'll need it, too!

* General
- Mutate should give more realistic results more often.
- The band dialog should be placed more intelligently.

* Bug Fixes
- Ligands should once again be mobile when using Wiggle Sidechains.
- Minimizing with voids should no longer cause a hang upon return.

This update also includes an update of our underlying software, Rosetta, which will allow us to utilize new functionality in the future. The update also includes small internal tweaks and fixes for Rosetta.

We're Celebrating 1000 Puzzles!

Puzzle 1000 is making a long awaited debut today, along with a client update. In fact, in order to play the new puzzle, you must update your client. This client update is scheduled to go out when our current puzzles close.

Keeping with our commitment to bringing timely and relevant puzzles, Puzzle 1000 is dedicated to our continuing efforts on studying Ebola. A big thank you goes out to our community for helping make this possible.

Feel free to share your favorite puzzle from our first 1000 in the comments!
