Subject: [PrimeNumbers] ECMNet Client/Server 2.5.6 is Released
I am happy to announce that ECMNet Client/Server 2.5.6 is finally released.
You can find it
At this moment the

Support for connecting to multiple servers with one .cfg file.
Support to run additional curves if unable to connect to a server.
No more memory leaks.
Support to do P-1 and P+1 factoring (only when both client and server are
2.5 or above
and the client is using GMP-ECM 5.0.3)
Support for sbfactor as a client instead of GMP-ECM for numbers in the form
Verification of factors in the server (when in decimal form).
Additional security with the server to reject bad results.

testing. Additional thanks to Paul Zimmerman for hosting the source.
Happy New Year!
