6,385- is factored. The composite cofactor was the product of 84-digit and 103-digit prime numbers. Another should finish in a about a week. Let's keep going!

This means that we have completed the factorization of the number 6^385-1. It is equal to the product of previously known factors times the 84-digit and 103-digit numbers NFS@Home discovered. The complete factorization of the number is available here.
