What's going on with the new plan_class versions? There are specific versions for XP/Win7/Win10/Linux/OSX now. The ETAs are ludacris at 5 days on one PC instead of the older versions ETA of 3 hours.

There seem to be no more AVX tasks as all PCs are getting SSE2/3. 100min run time vs 180min.

With the new apps out, maybe the server tries to find out which one runs the best on your machines? I am getting mix of AVX, SSE2 and SSE3.

Hi guys,

Jan Vaclavik is absolutely right. After new versions of Period search applications where introduced there was need of new classes as well. And now the server needs to calculate all estimation times for those application. That's why it is sending different applications on same host.

mmonnin, don't worry. All estimation times will get to their actual levels pretty soon. And you got it right. There are specific versions for all major OS builds now. That's the correct way.

I've posted some information, about the execution times and how server decides what and where to send, at this thread.
