    Hi,

    I just wanted to be sure about the number of fingerprints.
    On 16 Sept it was:
    Database version: v2013.09.16.08
    Fingerprints loaded: 276632

    I see it is now:
    Database version: v2013.09.18.12
    Fingerprints loaded: 252415

    Some optimization? (optimalisation?)
    (Forgive me; as we all know my English isn't really good; I don't know the right word)

    The numbers do go up and down. When it goes down, they must've done some optimisation, like removing older detections etc.

    I posted about the optimization over here. While there are several reasons certain definitions become useless the results are the same. Statistics show a long history of 0 hits in the wild so we remove these definitions from time to time.
