Is there any new understanding, property, or knowledge that has come from the Number Fields @Home distributed computing project? Has any outcome advanced the study of cryptography, or altered previous recommendations?

If nothing in particular has come from the project as of yet, are there some outcomes a cryptographer would find intriguing? If so, what are they, and in what way?
