Default When was the Mersenne website updated?

Hey all,

I've been checking Mersenne for an updated version of Prime95 every so often. Wasn't aware of the forums et al. I have been running two instances for dual cores for a while. I recently checked and found the new version (25.9) but was a bit surprised when I realised how long the 25.x had been around. After more searching though, it appears that until 25.7 the 25.x versions were considered beta and so not listed on the website. I believe 25.7 was the first version considered official and therefore released on the website (along with I believe the update to Primenet 5) and this was some time in October 2008 but just wanted to confirm. I had thought I last checked in January 2009 but for a new version Prime 95 when I found 2414 still listed but I'm obviously wrong.

Cheers

Eh? Who cares when it was updated! Just use the latest version of software and have an easier time with managing your two cores.

However, if you really really really need to know when it was updated (for whatever reason) then you can try checking archive.org.

(Not that it really matters, as retina said, but) I think it was in October, as Wikipedia listed an October release date for 25.7, which was the first 25.x to be listed as the stable build. Also, I know it was shortly after the new primes (which were in August/September).
