New limits apply to factoring too?
I guess that the answer is no, but do these new limits apply to initial factoring? I have an assignment where the PrimeNet report indicates factoring to 2^62, but my old PII is factoring to 2^67 (M30230527). I understand that deeper factoring does not cause problems but is it efficient? Thank you, Dr. Woltman, for your efforts.

These new limits ONLY apply to (trial) factoring
AFAI see it, everything seems to run as planned.

In addition to the GIMPSters processing PrimeNet assignments, some people ("Lone Mersenne Hunters"  a slightly misleading pun on "Lone Gunmen" from the XFiles TV series) have been systematically trying to TF all the numbers to lower bounds (typically 2^61 or 2^62) before PrimeNet hands them out as assignments. They had previously trialfactored M30230527 to 2^62 before PrimeNet assigned that number to you, so your assignment included finishing up the trial factoring (from 2^62 up to 2^67 in this case; under the preV24.12 limits it would have been from 2^62 up to 2^68). Be assured that you are performing the correct (efficient) amount of TF; you are TFing to a shallower, not deeper, level than you would have under the preV24.12 limits.

Thank you very much, Cheesehead. That explains quite a bit.

Sorry, I need a quick translation of this table.

2^67 for all numbers less than 37800000.

24.12 has been out for a year now so there is no need to wait.
