A Reminder of the Community Rules

Hello all! Hope you are enjoying this fine Tuesday. I wanted to take a brief moment to remind everyone about the Foldit Community Rules. As part of the community, everyone is expected to adhere to these rules at all times, so it is important all are aware of what is expected. Here are the highlights:

  • Keep the conversation PG-rated, since there is a wide range of ages in the community. Anything deemed offensive or obscene will not be tolerated.

Developer Preview Release Soon

Hey everyone,

We're going to be posting an update to the developer preview here soon with some fixes and changes. Among these is a transition to a 64-bit Mac client. As mentioned in a previous new post, Mac is limiting their future support for 32-bit applications, and we need to make sure we're compatible.

If you are a Mac user and would like to test the new 64-bit release, you can download the 64 bit installer here: http://fold.it/dist/external/Foldit-macos_x64.dmg

New Release!

Hey everyone,

We're pushing out an update that contains some experimental intro puzzle and UI changes.

There are a few outstanding issues still remaining in the feedbacks, and we will be releasing a follow-up update to address those soon.

As always, a big thanks to our devprev players for giving us feedback and helping test the release!
