8)  It is now legal to put comment lines in the prime.txt, local.txt, and
    worktodo.txt files.
It doesn't mention it, but I believe starting a line with # will make that line into a comment.
I experimented by using the # symbol first. I didn't not see any error message about it so I figured it was alright to use, if needed.

Thank you all who replied.

Are P-1 save files incompatible between versions 29.4 and 29.8 on macOS?

I just upgraded Prime95 from 29.4 build 7 to the latest version on my MacBook Pro. Both workers were running P-1 stage 1 at the time. Prime95 immediately complained that the save files were incompatible and marked them as bad.The problem went away after I downgraded back to the previous stable release.

I know that P-1 stage 1 save files are incompatible between 29.4 and earlier versions, but I'm not aware of any such issue between 29.4 and the current version. At least there were no problems when I upgraded to 29.8 build 3 on Windows machines.

After upgrading to mprime 29.8 build 3, when I choose torture test I was presented with 3 options, but the default was set to option #4.

I noticed a minor inconsistency: Prime95 always appends two newlines to results.bench.txt when it adds en entry. In the other results files, Prime95 only adds one newline at a time. I assume this is unintentional.

I don't think so. Do you still have the example?

Running p95v298b3.MacOSX and just tried doing a Torture Test on my MacBook Air while doing a P1 Stage 2 test and the program crashes. Will send the crash report to George. Same issue with p95v297b1.MacOSX and it doesn't matter if P-1 is in Stage 1 or Stage 2. Even crashes if the P-1 test has been stopped.

I am going to attempt to set the record for the most trivial bug ever reported.

Now, when mprime submits ECM results, if only 1 curve was run the result report on the web site shows "1 curves". It used to say "1 curve".

Do I get a prize or something?

Forgot to mention that my MacBook Air is still running Version 10.14.4 (haven't upgraded to the new 10.14.5 yet). Went back and tested older versions:

29.4b7 Good
29.6b3 Good
29.7b1 Crash
29.8b3 Crash

Nope, I think it is a web site bug.

Where are you seeing a link? I thought I had commented out all of the defunct links to mersennewiki. I haven't seen the replacement yet - I knew it was being worked on but hadn't heard anything else.
