Default Attention Dubslow, flashjh, owftheevil !

Anyone know how to contact Dubslow, flashjh or owftheevil ?
I sent them a message here on the forum back on April 12th with no response.

They are listed as the devs for CUDALucas:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/cudalucas/files/

I want them to remove version 2.03 and 2.05 and remove the Beta tag from version 2.06, so people understand 2.06 is the main version.

People keep using 2.05 which zeros the results sometimes causing many many false positives.

I tried to send Dubslow a message on Discord, but it does not look like he uses it these days.

Amen to that. Two years (yesterday) as a beta test seems more than long enough.
I've contacted them about the same via forum PM.
One reply came from flashjh (in March) that he was busy but would get to it.
Perhaps they'd consider adding someone as authorized maintainer on sourceforge.
Or maybe someone would like to carry it onward with a fork.

I sent them all an email now as well, hopefully at least one of them still uses that email address linked with the forum.

I emailed Jerry. Let's see what happens.

Done. I'll do light cleanup in the evening...

Thanks.

Please consider updating the readme. There's a draft update at
https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpo...84&postcount=6
(edit: draft updated to v4 at link above, tonight. Also note, we are in the odd situation currently that the software mirror https://download.mersenne.ca/CUDALucas contains executables for CUDA levels 9 or above, that the sourceforge repository does not, that are required for newer gpu models.)

Would it be possible for someone to put a good linux version up there as well? I'm never quite sure where to look.

For now, see the mirror site https://download.mersenne.ca/CUDALucas
I think it's pretty common that linux users compile their own, given the possible variety of distros and versions of, cpu and gpu models, and CUDA level requirements.

To be clear, I only moved files around, renamed a zip file, and also made it a default download. But I didn't rebuild anything and/or even change the names of files inside the ZIP - they will have "beta" in name.

I also didn't put any words in the mouth of the developers. Just sed'd README from 2.05 to 2.06 and reposted.

That's great news. The CUDAPm1 project should probably be updated as well.
