Re: Firefly 64-bit code?

Dear Alexandra,

I'm sorry for delay with my reply.

Unfortunately, development of fully 64-bit Firefly is a very slowly
progressing project. It is not expected that 64-bit version will be
available this year.

Out of curiosity, how cluster support folks argued that they cannot
support 32-bit binaries on a cluster? It is most likely not so.
It is usually not so difficult to support 32-bit binaries on a cluster
and requires only minor additional efforts. What is the hardware,
interconnect and operating system/Linux kernel versions used by this
cluster?

All the best,
Alex Granovsky
