As far as I am aware, all implementations of Shor's factoring algorithm on quantum computers have been made in the last decade.
Many advances in quantum logic gates have been made since 1999. Something like a dozen different technologies have already been invented to realise qubits. Paul

Your claim is comparable to saying that the concept of stored program computers was developed by Babbage and Lovelace in the 19th century, and semiconductors have been used in electronic devices since the very early twentieth century, therefore developments in IT since then probably haven't been a huge milestone.

Looking at the list of the largest known primes, I remembered this thread. No megaprime has been found since August last year. It's the longest lack of megaprimes since 2006.
In fact, there hasn't been a change among the Top40 primes in the past eight months. I would bet this hasn't happened ever since there are websites devoted to prime numbers. Is it the economic crisis? Was Riemann wrong? Questions galore... Last fiddled with by mart_r on 20100408 at 17:15

We found a couple at Five or Bust, we just can't prove that they are prime yet!

Borys (Cruelty) just turned up this gem yesterday, 59*2^{3408416}1 (1026038 digits)

With a few more folks like science_man_88 hanging about, the answer to the question this thread poses will be "definitely, yes."
