Two new apps have been launched, lasievee_small and lasievef_small. As the numbers we factor become larger, the lasieved app has largely become inadequate while the lasievee app queue has grown very long. In an attempt to compensate, job memory use and runtime has crept upward to stretch the capability of the apps. To alleviate these issues, these new apps will provide additional flexibility to choose the app most appropriate to the size of the number being factored while keeping memory use and runtime more reasonable. If you have modified your project preferences to run only specific applications, you may want to adjust your settings to enable these new apps. Thanks for your contributions to NFS@Home!

Are these really new apps, because it looks to me that the small apps are using the same exe file as the larger version of the app

That would make it one app with a subset for large and small.

Also, though they seem to be separated on the account page it does not appear that the credit is separated into different subprojects in the user_work file ?

But you seem to get separate badges, so that's a good thing :) (Now why would I say that?)

Yes, they are using the same executable files and are simply providing finer granularity for choosing the appropriate location for a particular number. But they are implemented as entirely separate apps with separate stats and badges.
