After the recent fix for the very short work units issue I had to regenerate remaining work units using the new code. Of course there are fewer work units left now because they are not "very short" anymore, and the server status page says that ETA for current goal is June 18th, 2017. This is correct and it means that the next goal will be to find all amicable numbers < 10^20 and it will start in the summer. 10^20 is ~5.42 times larger than 2^64 and the new application will be slower because it will have to deal with numbers that don't fit in 64 bits. So the next goal will take 8-10 times more time.
