This release pretty much brings the automation of Prime95 to the GPU trial factoring arena. You still have to add work manually, but that's something you can load up on and forget about for weeks at a time.

I recognize that CHALSALL has a submission spider and others may have done similar work for reporting results that is useful to the TF/GPU efforts. As always mfaktXapp is there to help where it can.

Nice, however, can you cover the "Gimps password" field? to **** etc ?
I know no one sees it, but... you know

Given that the GIMPS site puts the password on the query string the concept of password security is not viable for this URL. Knowing of this exposure I decided to not hide or encrypt the password. However I expected someone to challenge me on these decisions. I figured the forum needed some chatter...

I can mask the password on the UI and even encrypt it, but from a pure security point of view it is already exposed.

However I usually try to do what is "correct" so look for it in the next build....

With the auto-submit now available, I'll probably install it. Thanks.

User feedback from others has taken mfaktXapp well beyond its first version into pretty useful utility. Anything you think of be considered.
