New Release!

Hey everyone,

We've just released a small update with the following changes:

General
* Updated the splash screen. The old credits screen was getting crowded, so instead we've listed the contributing institutions and included a link to the website credits page.

Bug Fixes
* Fixed an issue with multistart puzzles not properly handling some setups.

As always, thanks to our devprev players for helping test this release!

Taking Down Puzzle 1434

Due to a high level of "bugginess" with Puzzle 1434, we will be taking it down. We will put it back up when the issues are resolved and players will be able to load in their previous solutions. Sorry for any inconvenience. We appreciate all your feedback and everything you guys do!

Puzzle 1431 Unsolved De-novo Freestyle 117 Deadline Extended

Puzzle 1431 Unsolved De-novo Freestyle 117 has been extended by two weeks! After discussion with the community and Foldit admin team, we agree that a week for such a big puzzle was too limiting. We're hoping all find the two additional weeks useful for full exploration of the puzzle and apologize that the extension came so close to the actual deadline.
