I think of the Factors Page as the status, but there are other measures, too. The smallest composite, the C149 from M(1575), has had about 2% of the curves for 50 digit factors (B1=43M). The other five composiites under 200 digits have finished 55% of the search for 40 digit factors (B1=3M). The Special Project is about half way through the search for 25 digit factors (B1=50K). The Special Project has found 13 factors at this level. The most recently discovered factor was about an hour ago from the ECM Server, but I won't get around to a proper announcement until tomorrow.

Please notice that the GMP-ECM version you are using has bugs, so some prime factors cannot appear. You have to upgrade the client to use version 5.03. See http://www.loria.fr/~zimmerma/records/ecmnet.html for more information.
