Version 4.6 has been uploaded and published on addons.opera.com. Changes:

Code: Select all

```
Version 4.6: New: correct sample soups for the following symmetries not
handled by the server:
* AB_1x256_Test
* AB_2x128_Test
* AB_4x64_Test
* AB_256x256_Test
* AB_sha512_16x32_Test
* AB_sha512_20x20_Test
* 1x256X2
* 1x256X2+1
New: add pattern comments with sample soup information to sample
soup RLEs.
Improved: merge consecutive $'s in RLE patterns.
Internal: added Paul Johnston's SHA-512 script.
```

Sample soups now look like this when you're using the extension (example:

bi-pentadecathlon 1):

Code: Select all

```
#N Bi-pentadecathlon 1
#C xp15_4r4y14r4z4r4y14r4
#C D2_x sample soup 1 of 1
#C https://catagolue.appspot.com/hashsoup/D2_x/m_EGQYus4MpyR315711260/b3s23
x = 16, y = 16, rule = B3/S23

```

Correct sample soups are also shown for a number of symmetries, including my own test symmetries as well wwei23's 1x256X2 symmetries. I know the latter have been somewhat controversial, but I have no horses in that particular race. This isn't an endorsement of these symmetries; I only want for Catagolue users to receive sample soups that actually produce the right objects.

If there's other symmetries for which you'd like to seee sample soup recomputation in the extension, let me know. (I don't think we're going to see sample soups for "Saka_Test" anytime soon, though...!)

Object RLE was tightened slightly, so (say) the

trans-queen-bee-shuttle now looks like this:

Code: Select all

```
#N Trans-queen-bee-shuttle
#C https://catagolue.appspot.com/object/xp30_w33z8kqrqk8zzzx33/b3s23/C1
x = 7, y = 22, rule = B3/S23
2b2o$2b2o4$3bo$2b3o$bo3bo$ob3obo$b5o11$3b2o$3b2o!
```

Rather than this:

Code: Select all

```
#N Trans-queen-bee-shuttle
#C https://catagolue.appspot.com/object/xp30_w33z8kqrqk8zzzx33/b3s23/C1
x = 7, y = 22, rule = B3/S23
2b2o$2b2o$$$$3bo$2b3o$bo3bo$ob3obo$b5o$$$$$$$$$$$3b2o$3b2o!
```
