So I've been given access to the Factorization GitHub repository and decided to fix a few lingering bugs. neptunepink seems to have given me some kind of approval, so I guess you can call this - Factorization 0.8.109 - the new official 1.7.10 release.
Let the coremod accept certain different patch failures for pseudo-compatibility w/ OptiFine! (For some reason, FZDS works on OptiFine now.) (#4)
Fixed barrel GLAllocation crash bug (#13)
Fixed registering OreDictionary entries too early (#5)
So, it's mostly a bugfix release for the few issues which were reported on GitHub. You can download it here.
Note that the OptiFine compatibility might cause crashes with certain minimap mods. It's one or the other - without access to OptiFine source code, we cannot really do better at this time. (Or you can disable FZDS, but why would you disable FZDS? That'd be a colossal loss which the fate of your modpack could hinge on.)
For those of you who have been awaiting a 1.10+ update, I don't have great news - it's likely not going to happen. Factorization itself is pretty much abandoned. However, I have been taking in some of its features (the Pocket Crafting Table, the barrels, some of the gameplay tweaks) and rewriting them in my own mod called Charset, which is available - in some form - for Minecraft 1.10.2 and 1.12.2. It doesn't really have a website right now, but that's being worked on. More features may come at some point, as well as its own new features.
