Big Announcements for the New Year
Hey folders! The Foldit team is happy to announce an awesome update for you!
Early next year, we will be rolling out a brand new website! This website will have loads of new features that we hope will help players share ideas with each other and help our scientists share more cool science updates with you! Additionally, this change will come with a big clean-up from some of our old systems, which will make development much smoother moving forward and take care of a few bugs which have been sitting around for years. In particular:
When the new website is rolled out, we will remove support for GUI and Lua V1 recipes.(Mon, 11/23/2020 - 17:24 | 4 comments)
