Good for them ... I remember their streak last year and was wondering what became of the search. Unfortunately for us, GIMPS now has only the three largest primes. Somebody better get cracking with a 33M find ...

Congratulations to them! At 1,521,561 digits, it is the first non GIMPS prime with more than 1 million digits.
