Version 2.04 uploaded
New version 2.04 is now available.
Includes two improvements to yafu's QS: 1) Now using the poly formulation Q(x) = (2ax + b)^2  kN whenever possible (if kN == 1 mod 8). For ~85% of inputs this gives about a 10% speedup. 2) Found some new AVX512 optimizations to the bucket sort: linux systems (and WSL2 windows systems) that are AVX512 capable should be about 1520% faster (!) With those two improvements my benchmark numbers now run from 21 to 30% faster. Including a c80 in well under a minute! (46 seconds, down from 62 seconds, on my i77800X) The windows version doesn't get all of these improvements yet because visual studio doesn't like the compressstoreu instruction. I may need to update visual studio or file a bug report or something. Anyway, happy factoring! 
Segfault upon starting SNFS
I recently compiled a fresh build of YAFU, but am having issues when trying to factor via SNFS with a premade polynomial.

Yafu bug?
I downloaded the most recent version 2.05 for Windows. That version is still crashing for me. When I try to run it as yafux64.exe, it will open to ">>" where you can enter a command such as factor(123456) but it crashes before I can enter anything.

Ver. 2.05 works fine (so far) on my Windows 10 i7 laptop where I had the SIQS bug with ver. 2.04.

Hi Ben
I spent some time today aligning all the constituent parts of the YAFU Visual Studio 2019 build for windows X64 to use the Microsoft static runtime libraries and I now have a successful build of YAFU. I have tested it on Windows 11 (beta) with the Quadro T2000 GPU on my laptop and all seems to work as expected. It is available here (yafu, ysieve and ytools): [url]https://github.com/BrianGladman?tab=repositories[/url] The build is in the build.vs subdirectory, not build.vc19 (which does not build), as I am in the process of moving it to Visual Studio 2022. Sadly the build for the siqs_demo project fails because it cannot find these symbols: 1>calc.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol siqsbench 1>calc.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol smallmpqs 1>calc.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol SIQS 1>siqs_demo.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol get_computer_info I would be grateful for your advice on where these should be available.
