Prime95 v30.3
Prime95 version 30.3 build 6 is available.
From whatsnew.txt: Code:
1) PRP proofs. This allows GIMPS to doublecheck a PRP test at less than 1% of the cost of a full PRP test! PRP proofs require lots of temporary disk space. See readme.txt for details. PRP proofs require uploading a large proof file. See readme.txt for details. PRP proof verifications require downloading a modest verification file. See readme.txt for details. 2) Proofs automatically uploaded to server in v30.2. 3) First time LL, Worldrecord LL, 100Mdigit LL work preference is deprecated. 4) New resource limits menu choice and dialog box. Consult readme.txt before making changes to these settings. Some options previously in Test/Worker Windows and Options/CPU are moved to the resources dialog box. 5) LLDC and PRPDC combined into a single work preference. 6) Warning raised if temporary disk space is less than 1.5GB  you may not get first time prime tests. 7) Thanks to Mihai Preda, the P1 probability calculator has been improved. This change results in a lower optimal B1 value and higher optimal B2 value.

Placeholder for bugs fixes
1) If a proof is not being generated prime95 erroneously tries to which gives a file not found error. Fixed in 30.3 build 2. 2) An error getting the CERT starting value loops forever trying to get the value from the server. Semifixed in 30.3 build 2  now tries once an hour. 3) PRP test on a big exponent that would benefit from trial factoring was not getting the needed TF. Fixed in 30.3 build 2  code copied from the LL code path. 4) Most PRP cofactor proof files will not upload. Fixed in 30.3 build 2 5) Adding PRP=1,2,exponent,1 defaulted to "TF needed" and "no P1 needed". This is inconsistent. The new default will be "no TF needed" and "no P1 needed". Fixed in 30.3 build 3. 6) Debug level 2 in PrimeNet section of prime.txt outputs tons of binary proof data. Fixed in 30.3 build 3 by outputting <binary> instead. 7) Certification error message "MD5 checksum mismatch" can be misleading. Fixed in 30.3 build 4. 8) If SequentialWorkTodo=0 and you are doing PRP work, then your jobs will mistakenly be interrupted for priority work. Fixed in 30.3 build 4. 9) The setting for maximum CERT CPU percentage not working properly. Fixed in 30.3 build 4. 10) An error in preallocating the interim residues file disk space improperly increased the proof power rather than decreased the proof power. Fixed in 30.3 build 6. 11) Wrong hwloc DLL included for win32. Fixed in build 6. 12) Crashes during load on Vista 64bit and earlier with K32GetModuleFileNameExA not found. Possibly fixed in 30.3 build 6. Last fiddled with by Prime95 on 20200910 at 21:51

New in v30.3 compared to 30.2
The DLL for libgmp is not compatible with the previous one. This was causing issues for some users (finding the wrong version of the DLL). In this release, the DLL has been renamed to libgmpgw1.dll.
For those with limited disk space, this version can simulate a higher proof power using less disk space but a larger proof file to upload. For example we can simulate a power = 8 proof by doing a power=7 proof on the first half of the PRP test and a second power=7 proof on the second half of a PRP test. This uses half the temporary disk space and twice the upload bandwidth. LLDC and PRPDC are combined into a single work preference. Error detection/recovery in prime95 is much more robust.

Do you need a proof for your manual work outside GIMPS boundary?

Proofs only work for base 2 numbers. I'll work on a fix for the bug you found.

re prime95/mprime v30.3:Always good. In what ways was it improved?

Interim residues are now written with an MD5 checksum. Entire proof file is read back after being written to compare MD5 checksums. Numerous cases of sloppy error handling fixed. I code proofofconcept with sloppy error handling first. Then I go back and clean up.

Please upgrade to 30.3 build 2.
Two of the reported bugs were serious: 1) PRPs without proofs (say, if you upgraded from v29) will fail at the the end of the PRP test by trying to create a proof file. 2) Inability to upload proofs from cofactor PRP tests.
