Thanks, David.
So, to be clear, would the following release notes reflect the version of 3.62 that went to production?

Improvements:
- Improved and optimized energy function developed mainly by Frank DiMaio and Hahnbeom Park and others which improves on all scientific benchmarks
- This update also includes new protocols since it uses current Rosetta source (Ed - What are the *new* protocols that were not in 3.59?)

Not Changed:
- reverted the windows application back to the 32bit non-sse build
- reverted the linux application to the 32bit build (for the 64bit apps), non-sse build

Hello,

As a general software engineering/debugging principal, I would not recommend mixing cpu optimizations and new code in the same build. If a WU fails, what caused it to fail? The new code or one of the optimizations?

Instead, make as many branches as you need off the branch of the latest stable build in production, and start testing the optimizations one at a time. Test against work units that have already been run successfully on the stable code base without the optimizations.

By following this procedure, you will only be testing one change at a time, for instance enabling SSE or SSE2. So, debugging will be far more straightforward in the case of any WU failures.

Cheers,

Ed
