Finally, support for multiple GPUs and checkpointing has landed.

• If you have multiple GPUs, the research apps will now make use of all available GPUs.
• We now support Intel GPUs.
• If work is suspended, or your machine is powered off, checkpoints will now ensure work does not start from the beginning.
• You will also notice work estimates are far more accurate.
• You do not need to take any actions to enable these features.
• We are also taking steps to increase the priority of additional results added to workunits after computation errors. This in order to speed up validation of incomplete workunits.

Thank you to Hypprs, nicoboss, DutChen18, BalintCsala, and anyone else who was involved in testing and updating the app.

For the third time in 1 week, [email protected] has broken the tallest cactus height record in normal terrain generation.
I present, a 22 block tall cactus:

User profiles may be enabled, but I can't get mine to successfully be created. Keep getting "Your ReCaptcha response was not correct. Please try again.", even though i get a checkmark before i click the submit button. Also getting some anomalous errors concerning a profile picture, which i'm not submitting. Have tried creating profile in two different browsers (FireFox, Edge).

many erroneous tasks on Intel GPU kill WU, it is urgent to limit only relevant

and one more - strange in logs

ReCaptcha problem is also keeping people from signing up via the website. Workaround for people with this problem: add the project via BOINC Manager Add Project, this circumvents the captcha.

Disabled ReCaptcha for now. I'll be upgrading the server to 1.2.1 soon, hopefully today, which will fix a huge number of issues we keep discovering.
