"On February 19, began project OGR-28, the challenge to discover the Optimal Golomb Ruler with 28 marks. The previous challenge, OGR-27, is almost complete, with only 9 stubs remaining to be processed, as of February 19. People participating in that challenge do not need to update their client, as it can also process stubs for the new challenge."
