    So what's the change for .20? I don't see anything listed for changes.

    A version bump for public release most likely.

    Anyone else use HFM.net and have it stop connecting after upgrading clients to 7.6.20 ?

    This new client bugged out on me the other day. It was completing GPU WUs on my 3090, but no bonus credit was given for any unit for half the day as shown in the client, and I didn't see the WU completed number increase past what my 2080 Super does by itself in the extreme OC tracker. Restarting didn't fix it, so I had to uninstall and reinstall the client which got it working again.

    and it Works ... well sort of ... woke this AM to see a Blue screen on Nibbler ... sigh ... Stop Code " IRQL Not Less or Equal"
     
    Not sure if it was:
     
    1) OC of CPU ... forgot to reduce it from my benchmark runs .... though it had run fine for over 16 hours ... now stock "Auto" settings
     
    2) Windows 10 pro was updated to ver 2004 as part of prep for folding after several months of down time ... Nvidia DCH 445.87
     
    3) Or a F@H stability issue with my mild OC of the Titan X Pascal GPUs .... or the new Folding  7.6.21
     
     
    RTX project - two EVGA 2080 Ti are still cranking with no Blue screens ... however still 10 Pro 1909 with all updates .. also DCH 445.87

    I had no choice but to use current version. My older version would not load FAH program. It keeps looping this error message Connecting and Updating:
    Client: local Connecting / Updating Inactive
