The new Freehal applications are released and the work generation should work too. Every user is able to choose in the account settings
whether he wants to get non-cpu-intensive or cpu-intensive workunits. I hope we can go back to normal now.
If you find some bugs please report them in the forum.

Until yesterday people got a 'cpu-intensive' workunit although they selected 'non-cpu-intensive' if the server had only 'cpu-intensive' workunits but no 'non-cpu-intensive' workunits.
As it turned out, this 'feature' was bad, so it doesn't happen any more - You don't have to be 'afraid' of getting the wrong version.

There are two different ways of running Freehal now. You can choose whether you want 'non cpu intensive' (NCI) or
'cpu intensive' (CI) workunits.
CI's run about 1 hour or less with 50 MB memory, depending on your computer, and you get between 15 and 90 credits for it, depending on your benchmark results (whetstone/dhrystone).
NCI's need about 4 hours with 1% to 2% CPU usage and also about 50 MB memory.
For a NCI you get as much as for a CI workunit, but because NCI's need 4 hours and CI's less than 1 hour, people get less than 25% of CI credits when they run NCI workunits.
CI workunits: up to 2500 per day NCI workunts: up to 600 per day

FreeHAL is distributing work again, I haven't visited their forums for a length estimate or news update, but I am getting work on my computers again.
