This week's featured article

Tanner's p46 is a period-46 oscillator that was found by Tanner Jacobi in 2017 involving a pi running a small conduit. Mark Niemiec posted a 19-glider synthesis two hours after its discovery. Various guns can be constructed by combining two of the oscillators themselves, one of which produces middleweight spaceships without any gliders required.

In the news

  • October 16: Andrew Trevorrow makes available the first beta builds for Golly 4.0, supporting Python 3.x and new rule types and neighborhoods, and enabling multi-color "Super" and "History" support for a wide range of two-state rules.
  • September 27: A burloaferimeter variant appears in an asymmetric soup found by Rob Liston, making it the first natural period-7 oscillator.
  • September 26: Pavel Grankovskiy completes Speed Demonoid version 2, removing the 2c/9 limitation; a Golly script can now build a spaceship with any rational diagonal speed below c/4 (subject to some practical size limitations).
