Game update

We have another update that you should get automatically when you run the game; and it should be posted for everyone by tomorrow.  It includes:

Multiple chat channels: chat with everyone, with the people in your current puzzle, or with your group!

In game news: the news postings will show up in the game, so you can be up to date on what's happening with foldit.

Hotkeys: Restore best is now bound to Ctrl/Cmd+B.  We're planning on adding more soon!

Protein selection fix: for people who were having problems selecting parts of the protein with the mouse, this update should address that.

Ranks Currently Disabled

You've probably noticed recently that you're not getting assigned a rank in any of the competition puzzles. Ranking has been turned off for a little while while we work on some server optimizations, but it's our top priority to get that fixed. Note that your scores are still being reported and you'll be properly ranked soon enough.
