New CUDA application for Windows x64 Release
We are proud to present you the new CUDA application that was released by our team yesterday.

What's improved?
- We've Added support for latest Compute Capabilities (CC). Application was built with latest CUDA SDK v10.2 adding support for latest NVIDIA devices with Compute Capabilities (CC). This build supports CC 3.0, 3.5, 3.7, 5.0, 5.2, 6.0, 6.1, 7.0, & 7.5 from Kepler, Maxwell, Pascal, Volta & Turing architectures and their GeForce, Quadro, NVS and Tesla series, but does NOT supports Tegra and Jetson SoC Series devices (CC 3.2, 5.3, 6.2 & 7.2) which are not subject of interest for this project.
- Fixed issue with special Light curves which has more than 1000 points.

There is no x86 (32bit) version. CUDA 10.2 supports x64 (64bits) operating systems only.

Side effects that could be observed because of the update.
If your client shows unusual "Remaining time" for the tasks you can follow these steps:
1) Set "No new tasks" from "Project" tab for "Asteroids@Home" project.
2) Then you need to finish your recently downloaded tasks.
3) When all are done and reported to the server please reset the project with 'Reset project' button at Project tab.

We also suggest to use the latest stable version 7.14.0 of BOINC client.

And last but not least we strongly suggest users, who has CUDA enabled devices to upgrade their drivers to the latest one. For today it is 442.74 - WHQL. You will find it here: https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/158759/en-us
For legacy drivers you will find drivers here: https://www.geforce.com/drivers/beta-legacy

Despite new CUDA application is release we will continue to support older devices with older drivers by the previous CUDA55 application.

I would also like to thank Georgi Vidinski who made this release possible.

New models reconstructed from Gaia and Lowell photometry
We published hundreds of new asteroid models. The paper is available at arXiv and should soon appear in Astronomy and Astrophysics journal. Thanks a lot for your contribution and patience! 24 Sep 2019, 6:21:48 UTC · Comment


Server maintenance on 07.10.2018
There is going to be a server maintenance on 07.10.2018. Servers will go offline at 15:00 UTC for about 15 hours.

BOINC compoments shut down for two days
Hi, I am sorry for the current situation with a disk space. There is again no free space available on server so I had to shut down BOINC compoments and results are moving to a temporary storage. I will start BOINC compoments in two days (11.07.2018). If possible I will start it tomorrow depending on the file transfer status (I'll inform you on twitter when BOINC is fully running again).
We are also waiting for a new storage server which will solve the repeating disk space problem so I hope it will be very soon.
