We're working hard on testing our Kryptos Plato 0.6 update, which - whilst still a VirtualBox-based app - brings in substantial computational speed-ups (on the order of 10 times) and expands the exploration capabilities of Kryptos Plato, meaning that we'll be able to search within an even bigger solution space than before.
As a result, we're suspending workunit generation for a couple of days, in order to enable efficient CPU resource utilization over the more efficient version. Validation of all currently scheduled for sending (as well as ongoing) tasks will proceed as usual, until exhaustion of the work queue.

Much appreciated.

Looking forward to running the new WU's.

Do you have any idea how close to a solution we are getting or will we just have the answer in a single WU someday?

A very good question!

We currently do have an idea about the relative progress, towards some possible solution, yes!

will we just have the answer in a single WU someday


It'll be also partly this, yes.

I'm working on some sort of an automated visual representation of the progress (so that my answer would make more sense in conjunction with the graph(s)), which will be displayed on the main page. We're still quite early on and there are many WU's ahead - that's why I'm cognizant to not generate further tasks, associated with the current version of the app.

Any idea yet when the new app version is going to start getting sent out? We have been without work for more than "a couple of days" now. Thank you!

Hi and thanks for checking up on this!

I've been snowed under with some non-Kryptos work over the past couple of days, and the app update has been pushed back as a result.

It'll probably be this weekend - if the plans change in the meantime, I'll resume generation of Kryptos Plato 0.5 tasks.

Sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused!
