Welcome to the Folding@home Client Page

This site contains information about the new Folding@home client.

Here you can download software releases and read documentation. Everyone has read-only access, except for a few testers that can edit the wiki, report bugs, and request new features.

The main goals of the new Folding@home client are:

  1. To make the installation and start-up user-friendly for the Novice.
  2. To integrate the user interface into a single Monitor/Control program that manages the functionality previously contained in separate clients.
  3. To create a forward-looking design that can be readily expanded to incorporate new FahCores without the need to issue new client releases.
  4. To greatly improve previously problematic aspects including support for SMP, GPU, and the 3D viewer.

The Ticket System (Bug/Issue Reports)

Due to the limited developer resources, full access to the ticket system is only available to the Internal Testers. Everyone else can view the titles of accepted open tickets which are here. Unaccepted open tickets will not appear there.

Quality reports are critical to maintaining good software so if you want to report a bug, please first read the TicketSubmissionGuide. Do note that we want you to be actively involved in this process. If you have an issue to report please discuss the issue in the appropriate  Forum and a ticket will be opened for you if deemed valid.
