Default 47th Mersenne prime reported!

Check the GIMPS home page!!

47th Known Mersenne Prime Found!
Verification in progress.

GIMPS' "hot streak" continues with the discovery of the 47th known Mersenne prime. Independent verification is underway, check back soon for all the details.
By the way, something tells me that sleuthing is going to be quite a bit harder in v5. :o
