Commonness
The tripole is about the fourteenth most common naturallyoccurring oscillator in Achim Flammenkamp's census, being less common than ship on quadpole but more common than mazing.^{[1]}
Glider synthesis
Extremeenthusiast improved the previous 7glider synthesis to 6 gliders on June 23, 2017.^{[2]}
