Removed points for Puzzle 1592

Due to serious performance issues for some players, we've removed points and categories from Puzzle 1592: Symmetric Dimer Design: Limited Interface. Players should not feel compelled to play this puzzle to remain competitive on the leaderboards.

However, if you are able to play this puzzle without issue, we will still analyze solutions after the puzzle closes!

Thanks to all the players who offered prompt feedback about the performance problems!

New Release!

Hey everyone,

We've just released a new update with the following fixes and functionality:

* The chat system has received some additional functionality.

Bug Fixes:
* Fixed an issue that was causing symmetry puzzles to run slowly.
* Fixed a bug which resulted in Foldit sometimes hanging.
* Fixed an issue allowing some locked parts of the protein to move when they should not.

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