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
Main/devprev are both the same for this installer right now, but make sure you take the update immediately after running, as the one bundled with the installer is out-of-date.

Here's a list of the rest of the fixes/changes:

Features:
* Added some additional instrumenting to report crashes and errors to the server.
* The initial code for always-positive conditions (now bonuses) is being rolled out. For now, scoring will remain the same.

Bug Fixes:
* Fixed several crashes in geometry rendering code.
* Symmetry puzzles which once crashed when asymmetries were detected now instead cancel the running tool and report an error.

There is currently a bug with certain filters not properly penalizing players. We have disabled scoring credit for this devprev release pending a fix. Users should receive a message indicating they will not get credit. You may still take your solutions and load them into the main client to get credit.

Revert

This Has been temporarily reverted on Windows/Linux. Not that Mac is not reverted, as there was nothing to 'revert' to. For the time being, continue using the 32-bit version, as your 64-bit version will not function.

Not starting

I downloaded and tried to start on an old MacBookPro (with 2 normal foldit clients running). It doesn't open.
